Our homes in Florida are often sealed up against the outside. During the summer, it’s to make sure the heat stays where it should and the air conditioner can run effectively. In the brief winters, it’s to trap heat and make sure our heating systems have to come on as little as possible. Having a home this sealed up, however, can create severe indoor air quality problems—the contaminants inside the house, which come from wood, paint, cleaning supplies, and many other places, start to build up. We recommend homes have air filters put into their HVAC system to help remove larger unwanted particles from circulating. 

But what if those filters aren’t enough?

Proper humidity control can help alleviate the source of the problem, but when it comes to cleaning these harmful spores and microbes from the air, the best solution is UV lights, a.k.a. UV air purifiers.
