Ventilation and UV lights
Another big problem when it comes to air quality is stagnant air. Stagnant air doesn’t circulate properly, meaning it becomes stale as dust and pollutants build up. This can lead to allergy symptoms and other health problems if you breathe in stagnant air for too long. This is where proper venting and air circulation come into play. Ventilation systems typically circulate the air through your home via fans and air pressure regulation. They draw fresh air from outside your home while flushing the old stale air back out. This, combined with UV lighting, can help keep a constant flow of fresh and healthy clean air circulating in your home.
Installing UV lights in or near your system’s intake can further help improve the air quality. UV, or ultraviolet light, destroys organic contaminants, like mold and mildew, by emitting a light that destroys their DNA makeup, rendering it harmless. However, UV lights are not a one size fits all type of solution, so it’s recommended you speak with our specialists for more information if you think ultraviolet lights might benefit your home.
