You probably have plenty on your mind when it comes to home chores at the start of summer. Worrying about your indoor air quality may not be at the top of the list of your current concerns. But when the summer heat turns intense and you start spending more days with your household sealed off from the outside air, indoor air quality will take a big hit. Numerous pollutants from inside sources–cooking and cleaning products, paint and building material, bacteria and mold spores–will circulate through the living space without fresh air to clear them out.
You have multiple options for improved IAQ for your homes, and air purifiers in Delaware and Maryland are among the best. But you’ll have to work with indoor air quality professionals to ensure that you have the right type of unit and the best installation available. That’s where Atlantic Refrigeration & Air Conditioning can help out.
UV stands for ultraviolet, a spectrum of light we can’t see. But we can often feel it when we go out in the sunshine: it’s what causes our skin to tan and burn. At lower levels, UV lights or blacklights are a common fixture at rock concerts, and in dark rides at amusement parks. They interact with chemicals in your laundry detergent to make your white clothes appear to glow in the dark. But UV lights can do more than just provide amusements or help your tan at the beach. They can form a very powerful weapon against germs and colds.

If your family has recently added a newborn baby, you might have heard about UV air purifiers to elevate the level of cleanliness in your Dover, DE home. The same holds true for family members with asthma or similar lung conditions, or for elderly family members. Like newborns, they may have a decreased immune system, leaving them more vulnerable to colds, viruses and other infections. A UV air purifier makes a stalwart line of defense, and even if your family members are all healthy as horses, the system can be a good investment. How do they work and why would you need one? We’ve provided a quick outline below.
The air filter in your HVAC system probably does a good job of eliminating a large percentage of the most common particles found in homes and businesses. However, it may not be so effective at filtering out a number of the most dangerous pollutants, which are often too small for the common filter. This includes living microorganisms such as mold spores, bacteria, and viruses. A UV air purifier provides additional protection against such biological pollutants in order to prevent illness and ease allergies.
