Do You Need Air Filters or Air Purifiers for Your House?Monday, June 27th, 2022
If you’re asking yourself whether you should have air filters or air purifiers added to your house, it’s because you’re concerned about the quality of your indoor air. You have good reason to feel worried: poor indoor air quality is a major problem in many buildings, with the Environmental Protection Agency estimating that the air quality indoors is often three to five times worse than the air outdoors. This is because buildings like your home are constructed for maximum insulation—and this means there’s little fresh air circulating to cleanse out stale and contaminate-filled air.
Air filtration and purification systems are an excellent way to boost your home’s air quality by removing the majority of unwanted particles from moving through the HVAC system. But how do you know which one to get and what type you need? The job is easier than you think: you just need to get in touch with our team. We offer full service to install indoor air quality systems.

Dealing With Allergy Season in Your HomeMonday, February 21st, 2022
What does allergy season mean? You’ve probably experienced what it feels like—sneezing, congestion, eye and nose irritation. But why does it happen when it does? The reason is that as the weather begins warming up in spring, it increases the bloom of several plants that send pollen into the air, most notably ragweed. Allergy season can be extremely serious in Florida, and it often strikes early because our winter season is short.
What are the best ways to deal with allergy season in your home? Believe it or not, your local HVAC pros here at the A/C Guy of Tampa Bay have ways to ease your allergy season burdens. We’ll get into more details below.
How UV Air Purifiers Can Help Your HomeMonday, June 28th, 2021
It is no secret that homes across the US have frequent problems with maintaining good indoor air quality. Modern homes are designed to prevent the loss or gain of heat through open areas. While that can ensure that indoor temperatures remain cooler or warmer than outdoor temperatures, depending on the season, it also means that there is little chance for fresh air circulation to clean out the concentration of airborne contaminants inside.
Here in Palm Harbor, one of the biggest concerns we face for indoor air quality is through contaminants like mold spores, viruses, and bacteria. The high humidity in the area makes it easier for mold to develop in parts of our homes, causing mold infestations. The presence of microbes also increases the chances of you getting sick by breathing in these contaminants.
Fortunately, installing an air purifier in Palm Harbor, FL, can help you get rid of the problem. Air purifiers come in different shapes and forms. Today, we will discuss ultraviolet (UV) air purifiers and how they can make your home better.
An Air Purifier: When Filters Aren’t Enough for Better Air QualityMonday, November 30th, 2020
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? Too many minute particles can slip through them, and putting in more powerful filters is rarely an option because that will stop airflow through the ventilation system. In this case, the answer is to have an air purifier in St. Petersburg, FL. Or more than one, depending on what types of contaminants you’re targeting.
The Power of UV Lights for Cleaning Your AirMonday, June 3rd, 2019
Homes across the US frequently have issues with indoor air quality. Because modern houses are designed to prevent loss or gain of heat through open areas, there’s little chance for fresh air circulation to clean out the concentration of indoor contaminants.
Here in Tampa Bay, one of the biggest indoor air quality challenges we face is organic pollutants. Our high humidity makes it easy for mold to develop in parts of our homes, and it also creates a fertile environment for microbes and viruses. 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.
