3 Products To Improve Indoor Air Quality

While indoor air quality has always been an important HVAC issue, the COVID-19 global pandemic has heightened concerns about air quality amongst homeowners, as well as business owners.  The Diamond Heating & AirTemp Alaska team has received many calls from concerned clients, and we want to share our top 3 residential and commercial indoor air quality (IAQ) products for combatting harmful pollutants and simple measures you can take to improve the air you breathe. We want to stress that while most or all HVAC equipment and accessories have not been tested against COVID-19, they have been tested on other pathogens such as viruses, mold spores, germs, bacteria, and allergens.  Our hypothesis is that the same technology and practices that worked well reducing the spread of H1N1, SARS, and Ebola will hopefully help with COVID-19.

The Fresh-Aire UV APCO

Did you know that indoor air pollution is divided into 3 categories, particulate, chemical (odors, VOCs), and biological (mold, bacteria, viruses)? Air filters only capture particulates. APCO is proven to safely reduce both chemical and biological contaminants.

The Fresh Aire UV APCO is a whole-home air purifier that utilizes activated carbon and germ-killing UV-C light to eliminate 99% of odors, chemicals, mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens within the first 24 hours of use. APCO installs directly into your central air system, purifying the air and circulating it through your entire home. You will no longer need individual room air purifiers! APCO also extends the life of your heating system and keeps it cleaner, longer.

Odor-causing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can accumulate in your home or business, and if unchecked these airborne contaminants can build up and reach dangerous levels. As the VOC molecules pass through the Fresh-Aire UV APCO, they are captured and held by a mixture of carbon and titanium dioxide. When light from the UV lamp interacts with the carbon mixture, a photocatalytic reaction occurs to help break down the VOCs into harmless and clean water vapor components that a release back into the air.
