As residents of the modern age, we count on our technology to make our lives better. From computers to cellphones to smarter cars, technology continues to give us better experiences and an easier life. Technology can also be used to improve the quality of life at your home by providing you with cleaner air.
One technology that’s a bit newer to the market is ultraviolet lights. These lights can be installed above an AC coil, blasting the air that passes by with a wash of UV light. The UV spectrum of light works as a germicidal element as it penetrates through the cell walls of bacteria. This kills them inside your central air system, preventing bacteria from traveling throughout your home with the blowing air.
HEPA filters – short for high-efficiency particulate arrestance – have been available for quite some time, but are another technology that improves indoor air quality. These filters are far more capable of removing dust, dirt and other irritants from your household air, filtering out 99.97 percent of particles that are 0.3 microns or larger. If you suffer from asthma or have sensitive pollen allergies, adding a HEPA filtration system can help remove these issues from your life.
Lastly, Honeywell offers an alternative to HEPA filtration – the electronic air cleaner. This device requires minimal maintenance, and uses a washable filter to save on replacing filters regularly. More than 94 percent of particles can be trapped with an electronic air cleaner, making it a bit less efficient than a HEPA filter, but at a reduced cost of upkeep. In addition, our electronic air cleaners are backed by a five-year warranty, and are a perfect option for many homes.
