During our hot New York summers the air quality often gets worse as the temperature rises. As the sun's rays heat the outdoor air, excess chemical compounds mix with the air, as naturally occurring nitrogen oxide, resulting in a toxic soup of harmful ground-level gases. The risk is greatest to those who suffer from respiratory ailments. Add this pollution to a high concentration of allergens like pollen and mold already present in the air and you'll be ready to take refuge indoors.
While the indoors may be the better place to breathe easier during the hot weather, some of the same airborne particles and gases can become trapped inside - in some cases, they can be in even higher concentrations than outside.
Whole House Air Cleaners
A whole-house air cleaner can provide homeowners with much-needed relief from the many potentially harmful airborne particles inside the home, dramatically improving the quality of indoor air. Working in conjunction with the home's HVAC system a whole-house air filter can provide hospital-grade air purification. A removable media filter eliminates more than 95% of allergy-aggravating particles from indoor air. While an electronic purifier reduces ground-level ozone, an unhealthy gas.
