Solutions to Control Allergens in Your Home

In addition to all the ways listed above here are three Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) solutions we offer to help eliminate allergens and reduce the effect they have on those in your home.

1. Media Air Filter

These filters are a major upgrade to the standard one-inch filter in most furnaces. They capture more airborne irritants and ones much smaller that the one-inch filter has no chance of capturing.

Bonus: Media filters also don’t need to be replaced as often as one-inch filter.

2. UV Light Air Purifier

UV Lights are installed right into your existing duct work and neutralize pollutants from not only bacteria or mold but also carpets, and wood floors.

Bonus: UV light air purifiers also can eliminate pesky odors in your home too.

3. Duct Cleaning

Dust, debris, and even Tonka Trucks (yay for kids) build up in your duct work after a while. If you’ve never had your duct work professionally cleaned, this service could be a life saver for those who are allergy sensitive.

Bonus: A duct cleaning will also extend the live of the furnace air filter.
