Air Quality and Your Air Conditioning Unit
In the current climate of dealing with Covid-19, it is important to make sure you are staying as healthy as possible and avoiding anything that could make respiratory issues worse. Air conditioners can have an impact on your indoor air quality, so it is important to know just what it can do to the air you are breathing in.
Air conditioners aren’t just cooling down the air in the room, but also reducing the amount of humidity in the air. High humidity can allow moisture to hang around longer without drying, making it easier for mold to grow and thrive in your home. Mold, especially black mold, can lead to serious health problems, including skin irritation, allergies, and respiratory issues.
The air coming through your air conditioner will need to go through a filter first, allowing it to trap pollen, spores, and dust before it can come into your home. It is important to remember to take out the filter at least once a month to clean it to get the best results from your air conditioner’s filter.
You can greatly decrease the allergens in your home and make it easier to breathe, which can be an absolute necessity for those with respiratory issues like asthma. Remember that without cleaning your air conditioner’s filter, you can end up with less airflow, debris getting through, or overheating in your unit, making it run improperly.
The more your air is able to move around, the better you will feel. But it is also important to promote healthy air flow, rather than just pushing the air around, much as fans do.
This is why it is important to look for an air conditioner with higher energy efficiency. This will keep the air flowing around for longer periods of time to maintain the temperature, rather than pushing a bunch of cold air around at once and then not doing anything for long periods of time.
The Air Scrubber Plus Purification System
Air conditioners are by far one of the best ways to cool your home and keep air circulating, but it could be much better. With the Air Scrubber attachment to your air conditioner, you can expect:
Air Scrubber’s ActivePure technology cleans the air in your home that comes through your HVAC system by utilizing germicidal UV light waves. That means harmful pollutants trying to come through your HVAC system will be killed before you can breathe them in.
Your air is freshened by the Air Scrubber by sending out “enviroscrubbing” molecules like hydrogen and oxygen in the air.
Removes dust, debris, and other harmful contaminants, allowing you to breathe in clean air, free of toxins.
The Air Scrubber is designed to work 24/7 whenever your HVAC system is working to help keep your air clean and protect you from harmful air pollutants. It drastically reduces your risk of Sick Building Syndrome, as well as other issues like Staph, E. coli, Black Mold, Strep, MRSA, and the flu. This is because it reduces the number of microbial compounds, viruses, and bacteria.
The REME Halo In-duct Air Purifier
The REME Halo is also an incredibly helpful addition to your air conditioner when it comes to improving your indoor air quality.
Purifies Heating and Cooling
The Halo purifying unit is designed to seamlessly work with your HVAC system, allowing you to use it whether you are heating or cooling your home. That means purer air, no matter what system you are running.
Removes All Indoor Air Pollutants
This device targets all three of the major categories of indoor air pollutants: microbial, particulates, and gasses. This means you are getting everything targeted and eliminated, rather than only being able to remove solids or gas forms.
Works on Air and Surfaces
Especially right now with Covid-19 being such a major health threat, it is important to reduce germs as much as possible. The Halo uses zinc ions to kill 99% of sneeze germs, viruses on surfaces, mold, and bacteria.
