Indoor Air Quality
Improving Air Quality
People do plenty of things to stay healthy such as taking vitamins, watching what they eat, and exercising. However, many people don’t maintain a healthy living environment. The WHO estimates that poor indoor air quality contributes to 1.5 million deaths every year through diseases like bronchitis, lung cancer, and infections. Air pollution also increases the risk of developing tuberculosis, asthma, and other respiratory conditions.
You can immediately improve your indoor air quality by vacuuming all of your rooms, washing bed sheets, and dusting hard surfaces with a damp rag. By cleaning once a week, you’ll remove many allergens from your home.
However, it’s a bit trickier to remove chemical odors and maintain your home’s humidity at comfortable levels, but Bratcher and Lennox offer a wide range of air purification products to improve your air quality.
Whole-Home Dehumidifiers to Control Humidity
Your air conditioner removes some humidity from the air, but it might not remove enough during the summer. High humidity levels can cause mold and bacteria to flourish, and your home will feel warmer, so you’ll need to lower the temperature to compensate. A whole-home dehumidification system will lower your humidity much more efficiently during the summer than portable dehumidifiers sold by major retailers.
Air Purifiers to Kill Germs, Eliminate Odors, and Control Dust
Many airborne diseases can survive for hours or days outside of the human body, but our air purifiers will kill or trap most bacteria. Air filters trap solid contaminants like mites while UV light air cleaners wipe out any organic pathogens with a concentrated blast of ultraviolet radiation.
When your neighbors throw a barbeque or you paint your office, you can be stuck with nasty odors that give you headaches and trigger your allergies. Our air purification systems will remove organic and chemical odors alike, leaving your home smelling fresh.
Try as you might, it’s impossible to keep your home completely dust free. By adding air purifiers, your HVAC system will work like a giant vacuum cleaner for your entire house. You’ll immediately notice a sharp reduction in airborne dust, and you can keep your home fresh by replacing your air filters once every other month.
