The truth about UV Lights and Indoor Air Quality

It is very likely that at one time or another you have wondered about your indoor air quality.

We are constantly being bombarded with information and statistics from a variety of places ranging from legitimate sources like the EPA website to misinformation deliberately put out there by unscrupulous companies trying to scare you into buying unnecessary equipment or services.  For example, there are companies that prey on the unsuspecting consumer by operating duct cleaning or duct sanitization scams intended only to get a salesman into your home to sell you services or equipment you probably don’t need.

Sean McCutcheon’s Air Conditioning and Heating, Inc. of Sarasota understands that sometimes it’s very hard to separate the truth from the fiction so we painstakingly research all new technology so that we can educate our customers, and we only recommend products that we genuinely believe in so that we can help you make the best possible choice.
UV lights air conditioningWe live in a world where Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs as they are commonly known are less prevalent, cigarette smoking is becoming increasingly unacceptable and Americans, for the most part, are trying to live a healthier lifestyle, but we are still exposed to plenty of unstable environments and toxic substances that can adversely affect our health on a daily basis. It is a fact that indoor air can have higher levels of pollutants than outdoor air.

In our warm Florida climate, most people will keep windows and doors shut tightly while they run the air conditioning units for months at a time. If there is not enough outdoor air entering a home, pollutants can accumulate to hazardous levels.

These pollutants can come from anywhere; some more obvious sources include pesticides, paints and cleaning products, but indoor air pollutants can also come from furniture, floor coverings or even certain types of pressed wood used for cabinets. In addition to these indoor air pollutants that can accumulate in your home, improperly maintained air conditioning and heating units can create the perfect breeding ground for airborne microorganisms and bacteria. HVAC systems can circulate these viruses and germs around an entire home or office building in a relatively short amount of time.
