Floridians spend 90% of their time indoors, and the air we breathe in our homes circulates through our AC systems an average of four times an hour.
“That’s why it’s so important to keep your AC unit clean, and free of dust and debris, because if your unit is dirty, your air will be dirty,” explains Gary Beurmann, air conditioning manager at Cornerstone Pros in Land O’ Lakes.
A typical home contains hundreds of pollutants, from invisible particulates to pet dander, dust, and indoor air allergens. This air pollution can be filtered out to help keep your family healthy by eliminating most flu viruses, bacteria and microbial growth.
“There are three steps to achieving optimum indoor air quality – superior filtration, high output UV lights and an oxidizer,” explains Beurmann. “While the most thorough solution is to incorporate all three steps, if you can only afford to do one, your air quality will be greatly improved. I tell customers installing one of the steps is better than none.”
Indoor air quality is especially important for people who have multiple pets, suffer from asthma, allergies and other respiratory conditions, and those who are sensitive to chemicals who live in new construction homes or recently remodeled buildings that give off strong VOC.
Cornerstone’s technicians are trained to assess the air quality in your home and recommend cost-effective solutions. “If you are having trouble breathing indoors, become sick when you spend time indoors, or have a weak immune system, our technicians will recommend the best air purification system for your home and budget,” said Beurmann.
In 2020 when the coronavirus first hit, Cornerstone’s inventory was depleted as homeowners installed air quality filtration systems to help keep their families safe.
“We learned from that the demand and need for these systems are critical in these times, and have invested in inventory to make sure we can help every family and business that calls wanting a quality air quality system,” said Beurmann.
Scrubbers and Filters
The first step for most homeowners is to install air scrubbers and filters that work with their existing AC system to eliminate odors, particulates and bacteria. An added plus is that while your home’s air quality improves, so does your AC system’s efficiency and lifespan.
Cornerstone uses Smart AirSpace Technology to trap and eliminate harmful airborne contaminants. This system installs quickly and easily into the existing filter tracks in an AC system, and its Air Ranger Cleaners use electronic polarized technology that traps 97% of most particles.
This system uses HEPA filtration and ultraviolet light to control the following:
– Dirt and dust inside your AC system, which in addition to spewing particulates in the air, also reduces your unit’s efficiency by as much as 50%.
– Eliminate allergens that cause allergic reactions and asthmatic attacks
– Deactivates organisms such as germs, microbial growth, spores, bacteria and flu viruses
– Eliminates noxious odors created by cooking, pets, smoke, solvents, carpets and vinyl coverings (VOC chemicals)
– Stops toxins created by pressed-wood products and other materials
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor pollution levels can be two to five times higher than outdoor pollution levels. Unknown by most people, the EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health.
“There is so much research that proves the benefits of clean indoor air,” said Beurmann. “Cornerstone Pros is proud to offer solutions to keep air pollutants out of your home’s air.”
UV Light Systems
For more than 100 years, scientists have known that certain light frequencies disrupt the DNA of microorganisms and prevent their reproductive cycle. Today, UV light disinfection is widely used in hospitals, laboratories, food service companies and other settings requiring sanitized surfaces and equipment.
To improve your indoor air quality, the Cornerstone team installs the Clean Air Defense’s UV light system. This air purification system destroys airborne contaminants as they pass through a UV filtration system where airborne microbes are repeatedly exposed to sterilizing UV rays.
“High output UV air purification kills germs and flu and cold viruses, eliminates odors, reduces chemical vapors, and removes dust and pet dander. It also reduces indoor contaminants like dust mites, pollen and microbial growth,” explains Beurmann.
