Reduce Your Exposure to Spring Allergy Triggers
April 08, 2021
Spring flowers may be beautiful, but they can also increase the pollen count and cause allergies and breathing difficulties. And with the current awareness of airborne viruses, there's never been a better time to improve your home's indoor air quality. A.J. Perri Plumbing, Heating and Cooling offers our New Jersey customers a wide variety of equipment that can help reduce your exposure to allergy triggers, viruses, mold, and more. Read on to learn more about the ways we can help your family breathe easy this spring.
What is indoor air quality?
The measure of indoor air quality, also known as IAQ, can be tested and assessed by the professional technicians at A.J. Perri. With Americans spending at least 70% of their lives indoors, it's essential to know that your home's air is the cleanest it can be. We will ensure that your family remains comfortable and safe at home with our air filtration, humidification, and duct-cleaning solutions.
A more sophisticated air filter
We all know that regularly changing the filter in our HVAC unit is important. But did you know that a basic air filter you'll find in most homes is only capable of removing 3% to 5% of the particles that pass through it? When you invest in a modern air filtration system to accompany your existing unit, you can help protect your family from pollutants such as pollen, dust/dander, bacteria, viruses, and more. In addition to these health benefits, you'll also enjoy better energy efficiency and less wear and tear on your equipment.
Disinfect with an air scrubber
How would you like to have your home disinfected while you sleep? Air scrubbers are installed within your HVAC system and create disinfecting molecules using UV light technology. These molecules will travel through the air in your home to literally “scrub” it of pollutants, odors, smoke, pollen, and germs. The Aerus ActivePure Air Scrubber has been proven to kill COVID-19 on surfaces within seven hours. And as with air filtration, air scrubbers can extend the life of your HVAC system, too.
Reduce mold with UV germicidal lamps
Regular use of your air conditioning system produces condensation that can lead to mold and bacteria growth. You can help prevent spores and odors from growing in your home with a UV germicidal lamp, which kills mold and bacteria on your A/C coil. You're also likely to see a reduction in your family's illnesses and allergies since it is estimated that mold and mildew cause up to 50% of colds, cases of flu, and allergies.
