The team at United Refrigeration, Heating and Air is celebrating Clean Air Month by taking time to educate valued customers across Central Florida about the relationship between a person’s health and clean indoor air.
The American Lung Association (ALA) launched a national observance known as “Clean Air Week” back in May of 1972 to promote solutions for clean and safe air. Today, both indoor and outdoor air pollution continues to threaten our nation’s health. Our team wants to help you limit pollutants and keep homes and businesses safe across Ocala, The Villages, and beyond.
High-Quality Air Purification and AC Solutions
Smoking, household cleaners, and fuel-burning appliances are well-known culprits of indoor air pollution, but problems like dust, debris, dander, humidity, and poor air circulation may also cause air-quality problems and worsen health conditions like allergies or asthma.
Fortunately, an efficiently maintained air conditioner or HVAC system can play a key role in keeping humidity levels low, while also filtering allergens from the air you breathe. In addition, United’s experts often recommend Global Plasma Solutions (GPS), needlepoint bi-polar ionization cold plasma technology for superior air purification.
No maintenance or replacement parts are required for GPS technology. Once installed, its purifying technology does all of the work. Needlepoint ionization breaks down gases (nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and water vapor) to provide odor control. GPS also provides filtration for airborne particles, controls allergens, and helps kill viruses, bacteria, and mold.
Effective Ways to Reduce Air Pollution
As homeowners and business owners, there are also some simple things you can do to reduce indoor air pollution:
- Change your AC Filter every month and schedule preventive HVAC maintenance checks.
- Make sure the humidity levels in your home stay below 50 percent.
- Do your best to prevent mold/mildew, quickly repair leaks, and remove standing water.
- Avoid smoking indoors and limit use of strong chemicals.
- Provide proper ventilation when using cleaners, chemicals, paints, solvents, or pesticides.
- Ensure fuel-burning appliances and bathrooms are fully vented to the outdoors
- Install carbon monoxide detectors and never idle your car in an attached garage.
We hope these tips help you safely enjoy clean air this month and throughout the year. The team at United Refrigeration, Heating and Air would be happy to provide more information about HVAC system efficiency, offer solutions for upgrading your equipment, and explain the many benefits of adding air purification solutions at your Florida home or business.
