You may not realize it, but the air in your house often contains more pollutants than the air outside. And considering how much time we’ve spent indoors lately, that means you’re breathing in contaminants that can literally make you sick and tired. Fortunately, there are ways to purify your indoor air, making it safer and healthier for everyone. Contact us today to find out more.

Benefits of Adding a Whole Whole-Home Air Filtration System
A significant number of Coachella Valley homeowners suffer from allergies and upper respiratory problems. And many of the symptoms that come with these health issues can be reduced by cleaning the indoor air.
If you’re already doing the recommended chores to keep the air in your home clean, such as changing the filters in your HVAC system, cleaning your ducts, keeping your carpets clean, and dusting regularly, another arrow to consider adding to your quiver is an air filtration system, and here’s why.
So, the primary benefit of installing a whole-home air filter is to get cleaner, healthier air inside the house. Whole-home air purifiers use technology that significantly reduces the germs that circulate through your home. Air purifiers also filter out pollutants like pet dander and dust, making it easier to breathe for everyone.
Air purifiers help to keep the air in your house from smelling foul because they trap odor-causing particles. For example, using an air purifier will freshen the air after cooking much more quickly than spray fresheners.
It’s frustrating watching the dust accumulate again just a day or two after you’ve dusted, but that’s what happens when you have dirty indoor air. While using an air cleaner won’t eliminate your need ever to dust again, it will reduce the amount of dust that’s in the air, so you have to dust less often.
Longer HVAC Lifespan
When you add a whole-home air filtration system to your HVAC, it helps it to run more efficiently, which means it works less, translating to a longer lifespan.

Which System is Best? High-Efficiency Electrostatic Filter System or UV Air Sanitizer?
In climates like Palm Springs, it’s not uncommon to run your HVAC system for months at a time. However, while running your system for that long is required to keep you comfortable, it can negatively impact the air quality in your home. So, to get healthier, cleaner air, many homeowners opt for an air filtration system, but with so many choices, which one is right for you?
In this region of the country, people typically opt for one of two types of air purifiers: Electronic and UV. Let’s look at each to find out how they work and if either is better.
Electrostatic Filter Systems
These systems work by using electrostatic interactions to remove unwanted particles from the air in your home. Particles such as dust and airborne dirt typically carry an electrical charge. The electrostatic air filter uses an oppositely charged collector plate that draws in these dirt particles and traps them.
UV Light Systems
The ultraviolet light or UV light systems work differently. Instead of collecting particles, these systems use ultraviolet light to destroy organic pathogens like bacteria, mold, and viruses. However, unlike electrostatic filters, the UV systems don’t remove dust and other airborne particulates.
So, as you can see, both systems have their advantages, and neither one works the same, so you may wonder which one is best for you or if you need both.
If you want the cleanest indoor air possible, then adding both systems makes sense and will provide better results than having one or the other. However, if your problem is mainly dust in the house, you should opt for the electrostatic filter, and if it’s the bacteria and viruses you want to eliminate, then go for the UV system.
Of course, another option is installing a system that combines both of these technologies into one unit, so you get the best of both systems.
