How Air Systems Help Promote Healthy Homes

Indoor Air Quality

In honor of National Healthy Homes Month, our team at United Refrigeration, Heating and Air is highlighting how air systems and purifiers can help promote healthier homes for Floridians.

Allergens, dander, smoke, household chemicals, mold, bacteria, and even dreaded viruses like COVID-19 can linger in the air. These hazards can cause serious illness, aggravate asthma, and inflame allergy symptoms.  North Central Florida homeowners, however, can improve air quality and protect their respiratory health with solutions from United’s experts.

4 Florida Homeowner Tips for A/C and Air Purifiers
For air purification and A/C system optimization, consider these four tips to support continual, clean, and cool airflow throughout your Florida homes.      

  1. Air-Purification Systems and Technologies: Homeowners across Ocala and The Villages are enjoying healthier homes with the help of leading-edge, air-purifying technologies. There are cost-effective options for installing an air-purification system to clean and purify the indoor air you to breath. For example, Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) is a no-maintenance air-purifying solution with needlepoint ionization to break down gases, control odors, filter particles, as well as kill mold, bacteria, and viruses. 
  • Duct Cleaning and In-Duct Air Purifiers: Duct-cleaning services can help promote healthier spaces, but you can do more through your ducts.  United is a certified contractor for the leading in-duct air purifiers. REME HALO® Whole Home In-Duct Air Purifiers can reduce odors, pollutants, particulates, microbials, and gases in indoor air.  The system is powerful enough to purify all the air circulated by your A/C system. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this has become a popular upgrade.
  • High-Quality Filter Changes: Be sure to change your filters every month or more frequently depending on usage and guidelines.  A clean filter will extend the life of your A/C system, while also helping to reduce pollutants like dust, debris, dander, and other allergens. Choosing HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters and quality filter brands with a high MERV ranking (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) will go a long way in trapping allergens. Ask United’s experts which filter is best for you and your family home.
  • Preventative A/C System Maintenance: Schedule preventive A/C maintenance check-ups with United’s experts to keep your systems up and running.  A properly functioning system will do more than cool the air.  Your A/C will also enhance your physical comfort by helping to control proper humidity levels in your home. With your health and safety in mind, United’s technicians remain on-call to complete your A/C system evaluations, maintenance, repairs, and new installations.
