Why should you have Air Filtration in your home?
Why consider Air Filtration for your home? According to the EPA , “Indoor air levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times…higher than outdoor levels.” An Air Filtration system will greatly improve your home's indoor air quality.
Air Filtration systems which include an electronic air filter along with a UV light air scrubber can greatly improve your home’s indoor air quality.
These Air Filtration systems effectively remove, or greatly reduce the levels of, airborne contaminants that are polluting the air in your home.

Indoor air pollution is a critical problem.
Indoor air pollution is a problem for everyone, but it can be a critical problem for those people who may be exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods of time, and who are often the most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution, such as the young, the elderly, and the chronically ill (especially those suffering from respiratory or cardiovascular disease).(1)
Why Air Filtration for your home? Consider this personal testimony:
Our lead air conditioning tech, Herb, has a child who suffers with allergies and asthma. Before Herb installed an Air Filtration system in his home, the child was having frequent and severe episodes of breathing difficulties that resulted in trips to the hospital as often as 3 to 4 times a month. Since the installation of an electronic air filter and UV light air scrubber in the home, he has been in the hospital only one time in the past six months. In fact, Herb believes so strongly in the benefits of Air Filtration that it was his suggestion that we offer a special on purchase and installation of our Air Filtration systems (click here (http://stevensplumbingac.com/
Indoor air levels of pollutants may be 2-5 times higher than outdoor levels!
According to the EPA , “Indoor air levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times…higher than outdoor levels.”(2) Indoor air quality is of great concern because of the amount of time people spend indoors, especially in Arizona, and especially in summer when air quality can be at its worst. During the hot summer months, when homes in the Valley of the Sun, including Phoenix, are closed against the outdoor heat, pollutants can build up. And that build up of pollutants can be worsened by continual use of an air conditioning system without filtration, which often serves to circulate these particles – pet hair and dander, dust, mold, chemical traces, germs, etc. – through the air in your home.
Air Filtration reduces indoor airborne pollution.
Air Filtration systems can remove, or reduce the levels of, indoor pollutants. Some of the more common sources of indoor pollutants include:
• cigarette smoke
• household cleaning products
• pet hair and dander
• mold and fungi
• dust and dirt
• as well as biological contaminants (biological contaminants include bacteria, molds, mildew, viruses, animal dander and cat saliva, house dust mites, cockroaches, and pollen, which when dry can become airborne)(1)
• and pesticides ([a] study suggests that 80 percent of most people’s exposure to pesticides occurs indoors and that measurable levels of up to a dozen pesticides have been found in the air inside homes)(1).
Air Filtration systems are not all equally effective.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the effectiveness of an air cleaner depends on how well it collects pollutants from indoor air. (1) Regular air conditioning system filters catch only the largest of particles, those that the eye can see. Smaller particles, including biological contaminants and pesticides, are able to go through these filters.
And specialty filters designed to capture smaller particles are only partially effective. They are somewhat effective at capturing particles of pollutants like dust, pollen, pet dander, etc. but are ineffective against biological and pesticide pollutants. In addition, they tend to plug up quickly, resulting in restricted air flow.
An Air Filtration system is the most effective way to improve indoor air quality.
An Air Filtration System is the most effective method for reducing all types of indoor air pollution – not just particles of dust, pollen, hair and similar, but also germs and bacteria. The electronic air filter will catch the majority of the particles, and its electrical charge will destroy most of these. Pollutants, like germs and bacteria, that manage to evade the electronic air filter will be destroyed by the Air Filtration system’s UV light air scrubber.
Air Filtration systems are used in hospitals nationwide.
Finally, did you know these electronic air filters and UV light air scrubbers are used in hospitals nationwide? Why? Because they are effective at reducing levels of pollutants hospitals worry about – and you should, too!
