The health and comfort of your family are two of the most important considerations when scheduling services for your home. Often, you seek the help of HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) technicians because you wish to upgrade or repair your home heating and AC system for your family’s comfort. But you may also decide to call on the help of technicians when you notice repeated issues with your family’s health.
Do frequent allergy or asthma symptoms affect your family? Does it seem that you’ve made far too many visits to your doctor’s office in the past year? Part of the problem may be that the air in your home isn’t as clean as you’d like. When you decide it’s time to take control over the quality of the air your family breathes, call Command A/C. We install indoor air quality systems and provide professional ductwork services in Long Beach, CA and Orange County, CA.
A UV light purifier is able to kill bacteria and viruses living in the ductwork of your home. These microorganisms thrive in moist and dark conditions, much like the conditions on your air conditioner’s condenser coil. The blower fan may blow bacteria directly into the home, leading to illness. UV lights kill small organisms instantly. These are recommended for people with compromised immune systems, small children, or the elderly.
Air Filters and Purifiers
You should already have an air filter in your home heating and AC system, but if you don’t regularly change it and look for a new filter with a high efficiency rating, you may not get quite the level of air filtration you need. Check the minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) of your filter, and consider purchasing one with a higher MERV than your previous filter. You might also consider an electronic air purifier, which supplements your HVAC filter for advanced particle elimination.
Sealing the ducts can keep particles from entering and distributing into your home. For example, holes in the ducts may allow insulation from the attic to penetrate your home, a substance made of fibers which are usually not safe to inhale.
