Here’s a riddle— what’s cool, quiet, and constantly running during the summer? I’ll save you the brainpower, it’s air conditioning! Modern air conditioning was developed in 1930 when the non-combustible gas, Freon, was produced and used as a refrigerant in air conditioners. By the 1950s, air conditioning units were being installed in homes across the United States. Nowadays, air conditioning is commonplace in almost all buildings and homes— and to say that those of us who have survived July in the South are thankful would be an understatement.
Virus Prevention during Birmingham Summers
We’ve all come inside on a scorching summer day and taken up post directly in front of the air vent. But while you felt the cool relief of the air on your face, did you think about what might be floating around in that gloriously cold air? Probably not, but that’s because you were busy checking for signs of heat exhaustion. Once you’ve stopped sweating, maybe you should give it a second thought.
When you get home after being out and about, you bring all the allergens, bacteria, mold, etc., from everywhere you’ve been back inside with you. Bacteria you unknowingly touch can get transferred onto surfaces. When someone sneezes or coughs in your home, they could be spreading tiny droplets filled with bacteria or viruses into the air— yikes!
If you’re starting to feel a little uneasy or nervous about what might be floating around your home, it’s okay— but the Lysol down! While we should continue washing our hands and cleaning our homes frequently, there are devices that can help purify the air in your home, protecting you and your family from viruses, bacteria, and more.
Air Purification for Virus Prevention in Alabama
The iWave air purification device does just that. Easily installed into any duct air conditioning system, iWave uses patented technology known as needle-point bi-polar ionization to remove the hydrogen molecules from bacteria, viruses, and mold. Without those hydrogen molecules, all of that bad stuff is depleted of energy and cannot survive.
Is all of that scientific jargon giving you flashbacks to high school biology class? Well, “needle-point bi-polar ionization” just means that iWave injects equal amounts of positive and negative ions into your air conditioning unit’s air stream. These ions break down pollutants in the air and turn them into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, water vapor, and nitrogen.
Allergy Relief with Air Purification in Birmingham
iWave is also great if you struggle with allergies. The same ions mentioned above also attach to allergens like pollen, banding the particles together until they are big enough to be caught by your ventilation system’s air filter. That means less sneezing, eye drops, and tissues for you when allergy season rolls around! An added bonus— iWave also helps reduce odors in your home.
With four models that provide years of maintenance-free performance, you can find the iWave air purifier that’s perfect for you. Contact the experts at Service Tech, Inc. Heating and Air Conditioning to learn more about iWave and how it can improve the air quality in your home.
