One of the most important things to remember about your cooling and heating system is that it is a sealed system and because of that fact, it will trap contaminants and other unhealthy things such as dirt, dust, viruses, bacteria, mold and dust mites. If left unchecked, these contaminants can cause all kinds of actually very serious health issues, especially with children, the elderly and anyone with respiratory problems. Adults and children with asthma are particularly vulnerable to the problems caused by contaminated air in cooling and heating systems.
Once these contaminants have made their way into your A/C system, they are hard to get out, but there are a few things we can do for you that will get rid of them, and then significantly reduce their accumulation from that point on.
Having us install a HEPA air filtration system on your heating and cooling systems will help tremendously. We recommend using at the very least, a High Efficiency HEPA (Merv-11) Filtration system for your home. These filters are so fine that they will trap and eliminate a huge percentage of all these really nasty contaminants that can be flowing throughout your home. You can then change the filters yourself on a regular basis for a very reasonable cost and have the peace of mind of knowing that your system is circulating clean, fresh air throughout your home.
If you have anyone in your home that has asthma or respiratory issues, and you are not using HEPA filters, we strongly urge you to have us sanitize your duct system and then install one of these filtration systems on your unit immediately.
The indoor air you breathe is some of the dirtiest air you ever breathe and can have very dangerous microscopic viruses and bacteria in it. HEPA filtration systems will trap and remove a large amount of the particulates and contaminants, but not the viruses or bacteria. Bio-Fighter lamps are installed directly in your duct system, where the Ultra Violet light they produce targets all the harmful viruses and bacteria at the DNA level, killing them instantly. In fact, UV lighting systems are so effective they are used in hospital operating rooms to kill micro-organisms and stop the spread of diseases and infection. You can have this same technology working for you in your A/C system to kill these viruses and bacteria in your home! Every time your system starts up and runs in cooling or in heating mode to condition the air in your home, the UV light will begin to operate killing anything cellular based (the harmful stuff) that is in the air flow. It’s important to remember the UV light protection is there working for you in both cooling and heating mode.
OK, so now that you decided to have your HEPA filtration system installed, what about all the contaminants, dirt, building debris, mold, mildew and dust mites that are already in the system? The very first step to cleaning your system and keeping it clean is to have us come out and completely sanitize your entire A/C and heating unit and duct systems using our high-quality B & G Duct Sanitizer/Fogger Machine. We can accomplish this for a very reasonable cost, prior to installing your HEPA filtration system. This will sanitize the entire duct system, giving your new HEPA filters a clean, sanitized duct system to start working with. Even if you are not having a HEPA filtration system installed we strongly urge you to have us come out and sanitize your duct system for your good health.
Note: There is no such thing as the “Perfect Filter”. Actually, the most effective filter you can use is a sheet of plywood installed in the makeup air. However, it doesn’t allow for very good air flow! The “point” here is that even the best filter on the market is not 100% effective at removing dust. This is why duct sanitation is so important. You may be taking care of the filtering the air having us install a new HEPA filtration system but you will still need to periodically take care of the contaminants that will accumulate over time.
