We all know about the daily and routine cleaning that there is to do around our homes – taking out the trash, cleaning off the kitchen counters after cooking, vacuuming. But did you know that keeping your home’s air clean should be added to that list?
When we think of air that’s polluted we generally think of the air we breathe when we’re outside. However, it turns out that indoor air can actually contain ten times more bacteria, mold, viruses, toxins and pollutants than the air outside. In addition to all the pollution that we breathe in while inside, a home’s heating system tends to make the air really dry, which, in turn, causes bloody noses, dry eyes and scratchy throats.
The good news is that there are ways to improve and clean your home’s indoor air quality and Jennings Oil & Propane can help. We offer a wide variety of products that improve a home’s indoor air quality, including whole-house air filters whole-house humidifiers, and whole-house UV light air purifiers.
Whole-house UV light air purifiers are considered a strong solution when trying to kill off mold, bacteria, allergens, toxins and viruses in your home. They are efficient and effective, killing almost 87% of airborne bacteria and up to 99.9% of airborne mold. These kinds of purifiers are what commercial kitchens, hospitals and laboratories turn to to help keep their air clean and healthy. The more modern and updated versions of UV light air purifiers even transform foul smelling molecules into cleaner water vapor, therefore eliminating any unpleasant scents from the air.
Jennings Oil & Propane is proud to sell and install a selection of whole-house UV light air purifiers (link to https://www.jenningsoil.com/equipment/indoor-air-quality/uv-lights/), including:
