Why install a UV air purifier?

Outside, naturally occurring UVC from the sun protects us from bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other harmful substance.  The suns rays create a naturally occurring O3 to sterilize and freshen the air that we breath.

Photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) breaks down biological, and carbon based contamination by rendering inert and sterile reducing the amount of VOC's, odors, and micro-organisms such as dust mites and viruses.

Why humidify my home?

When cold dry air enters your home and warms to room temperature the humidity in your house can drop to as little as 5%.  Compare that to the 25% average relative humidity of the Sahara Desert and it's not hard to understand how the air in your home can seriously affect your health and your comfort.  As your home tries to reach it's saturation point it robs moisture from your air, plants, you, and your pets, wood work, and furniture.  The effects of dry air have a dramatic impact on your life and your comfort and consist of.

Why should indoor air quality be important to me?

EPA Studies show that we spend as much as 90% of our time indoors, and that indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outside air!

Do your eyes, nose, and throat often feel irritated?  Do you experience  headache, nausea and fatigue?  Do you notice your chronic respiratory condition is more adversely impacted when inside your home?

We bring pollutants home everyday on our clothes and shoes.  We introduce germs, viruses, bacteria to our homes after interactions with other people.  The products used in our homes such as cleaners, glues, varnishes introduce pollutants into our lungs.  Today's homes are more air tight to promote energy efficiency and therefore we trap more pollutants in our homes and in the air we breath.  In fact, the World Health Organization states that 1.5 million people die each year from the effects of indoor air pollution.

Allergy and asthma sufferers can attest to the fact that controlling indoor air quality can  bring tremendous relief.
