Healthy Air = Healthy Home
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors, where pollution levels are often 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor concentrations.
Airborne contaminants, such as molds, bacteria, viruses, dust mites, and animal dander, can cause and prolong sickness, which may lead to extra missed work and school days. People with allergies, asthma, and respiratory problems should be extra conscious of the air they are breathing.
To combat moisture related microbial growth, make sure your kitchens, bathrooms, and basements have the necessary ventilation and clean them often. Also, be aware that supposed “cleaners” and “air fresheners” may be releasing many harmful chemicals into the air. Talk to a certified professional at Universal about other ways to combat poor IAQ and adding humidifiers to your home.
Controlling indoor air quality (IAQ) is best done with your home’s central heating and air conditioning system. With proper whole house treatment, you will be able to limit the amount of dust, dirt, pollen, viruses, bacteria, dust mites, and other airborne particles.
Indoor Air Quality Products and Services
Air Filtration Systems
Attached to the central heating and cooling units, these systems are designed to filter and remove airborne contaminants before they are recirculated back into your home.
Houston is consistently ranked amongst the top 5 most humid cities in America, and for good reason. As we know too well, too much moisture will make the air feel significantly warmer and stuffier. Moisture is also the prime ingredient for mold, mildew, and bacteria that can be extremely damaging to your health. The solution is achieving the correct moisture balance. Our expert technicians will make sure that your humidity levels are just right.
With the same air being circulated in and out of your central heating and air conditioning system, combined with the moist Houston air, your air ducts are vulnerable to unhealthy mold and microbial growth. A professional duct cleaning every 7 years or so will drastically improve your indoor air quality and remove any potentially health-threatening contaminants from your ductwork.
A common culprit for poor indoor air quality is insufficient airflow and ventilation. If the same dusty, sick air doesn’t have a chance to be refreshed with the cleaner outdoor air, it will continue to circulate through your home, ductwork, and HVAC system. Our ventilation experts will provide you with healthy air circulation without sacrificing comfort or efficiency.
UV Germicidal Light Purification
For added protection against harmful pollutants, UV germicidal lights work to destroy harmful fungus and bacteria at the source. Without interfering with your HVAC system, the UV light system actually improves system performance, reducing the need for equipment maintenance. Improve operation, airflow, and indoor air quality with this relatively inexpensive system.
