Understanding Residential Air Sterilization
Have you or your family members been getting sick with seemingly no explanation? Would you be surprised if we told you that your home may be the culprit?
In order for you to better understand why your house may be the source of these illnesses, we have to take a look back. During the energy crisis of 1970, homes that were highly insulated became popular because of their ability to reduce energy costs. However, within a few years, people began to complain of excessive moisture issues (issues that caused mold and other air pollutants) within their home.
However, within a few years, people began to complain of excessive moisture issues (issues that caused mold and other air pollutants) within their spaces. Because of these issues, indoor air quality became a nationally recognized problem making residential air sterilization services extremely important for the safety of you and your family.
Mold vs. Residential Air Sterilization
Because of these issues, indoor air quality became a nationally recognized problem making residential air sterilization services extremely important for the safety of you and your home.
About 60% of Indoor Air Quality problems and allergens are mold related and our residential air sterilization services work hard to combat the impure air in order to help keep you and your family safe.
Mold toxins can often produce serious life threatening reactions such as asthma, pneumonitis, and in some severe cases bleeding lung disease. Not only can mold make you sick, but it also can create costly maintenance problems such as dirty coils, loss of heat exchange efficiency, excessive energy use, and dirty drain pans. The best way to combat these threats is through residential air sterilization practices.
Benefits of Residential Air Sterilization
When it comes to residential air sterilization there are many benefits, some of which include:
Covid-19 vs. Residential Air Sterilization
Air sterilization systems are also important when it comes to stopping the spread of Covid-19. In order to best explain how this works, it is important to first understand how the virus spreads. The virus particles are 60-140 nano meters wide but it is extremely unlikely that you will see the particles floating through the air. Instead, the virus will latch on to tiny specks of water and other biological materials to move around and spread.
Installing an air sterilization system throughout your home will help to deactivate the Covid-19 virus. The system produces a UV light that will then trigger a chemical reaction that fuses to the bacteria and changes its structure. Essentially rendering the virus harmless.
It is because of this that residential air sterilization along with air filtration is the best way to capture airborne virus particles. The safety of you and your family during these unprecedented times is extremely important, and it is important to us too. Air sterilization services help reduced the spread of Covid-19 and help to provide you and your family with a peace of mind while in the workplace.
ETA's Residential Air Sterilization Process
At Express Tech Air our residential sterilization services involve UV air purifier systems. These systems use ultraviolet light to sterilize the air that circulates throughout your home’s HVAC systems.
Ultraviolet light has been used for years by the CDC, in hospitals, labs, and even pharmaceutical plants to kill microorganisms so it only makes sense that it is used during your residential air sterilization services too. This UV light works to attack an organism’s DNA to either destroy it completely or to prevent the organism from reproducing.
Some of the worst contaminants you can find in the air are airborne and not only do they include mold but also other bacteria and viruses that can be harmful to your health. By using UV light in our sterilization process we work to kill and sterilize these bacteria so they become harmless for you to breathe and reducing their presence in your air altogether.
UV air purifier systems use ultraviolet light to actually sterilize the air moving through the HVAC system. Some of the worst contaminants you can find in the air are airborne microorganisms—tiny living organisms such as bacteria, viruses, and mold. By using UV light in our sterilization process we work to kill and sterilize the bacteria so they become harmless for you to breathe and reduce their presence in your air altogether.
Residential air sterilization systems are silent and tend to be invisible to the human eye depending on how it is installed. Meaning that you will be breathing cleaner air without any loud noises or strange smells.
