We often think of air conditioning in terms of comfort: keeping our environment cool, so that we are not overheated. As we create homes that are better sealed and more energy efficient, however, we break down the circulation between outside and inside air. This means that pollutants get trapped inside our homes, and can negatively affect the health of our families. In fact, some studies have shown that indoor air can be between two and five times more polluted than the air outside our homes.
The good news is that UB Cool Air Conditioning has the tools necessary to improve indoor air quality with some relatively simple technology.
For a number of indoor pollutants, improving ventilation through your air conditioning unit will help a great deal. These include:
Your instinct might be to just open the windows, but without direction to the air flow, you aren't going to achieve enough air exchange to improve the air quality substantially. If your family suffers from allergies or allergy-induced asthma, you will also be filling your house with pollen.
A ventilation system, however, helps to pull out your indoor pollutants and clean the air that comes back into your house. You get rid of the bad smells and the chemicals without adding fresh pollutants to your home.
Mold spores and bacteria are in much of the air we breathe. Decomposing plant matter throws mold into the air, and scientists say that we live in a sea of bacteria. Much of the bacteria we encounter is harmless, but the organisms that are not harmless tend to make us very sick. Mold can trigger allergies and asthma attacks, making kids and adults more susceptible to illness.
By incorporating UV lights into the indoor coil of your air conditioner, UB Cool Air Conditioners keep these pollutants from entering your home and making you sick in the first place.
Whether circulating in your air or coming in from outside, particles like dust, animal dander, and plant spores, can all have a negative affect on your overall health. From aggravating your allergies and asthma to making your house seem dirtier than it is, particulates are one of the hardest things to remove from the environment through basic cleaning.
The cleaners in our air filtration system remove particles as small as 0.01 microns. These are the very best filters currently available on the general market and remove even the smallest particles.
As our homes get more tightly sealed, they are also getting dirtier. Opening a few windows is no longer enough to get the fresh air you crave. Investing in a top-quality air conditioning system won't just keep you cool when it's warm out, but will also improve your family's health and well-being. You will have fewer allergy attacks, fewer asthma attacks, and you may even get sick less often.
UB Cool Air Conditioning serves the Darwin area with high-quality air filtration and conditioning that makes our homes a safer, healthier place to live. We also have a retail location that you can visit to find out more about our products and processes.
Your family deserves to be comfortable, healthy, and happy. We want to help you achieve that goal by cleaning your indoor air until it's even cleaner than the air outside. You should be able to live in a home without overwhelming smells, air quality issues, or pollen making you feel unwell. Contact us today to find out how to make you home a better place to be.
