If there’s one thing that many homeowners look forward to in September and October, and it’s the cooler temperatures, and the fact that they can open up the windows in their home and turn off their air conditioners. But did you know that fall is actually a time when you’re at high risk for poor indoor air quality in your home? Here’s how the changing season can introduce air pollutants into your house, and the steps you can take for cleaner, healthier indoor air.
Why Fall is Bad for IAQ
While the summer heat can send your electricity bills through the roof as your AC is working overtime to keep your home cool and comfortable, many homeowners open up their homes in the fall to get outdoor air circulating.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot going on outside in the autumn that can bring unhealthy particulates and pollutants into your home. Dust mites, mold growth, and ragweed pollen all thrive in the fall season, and once these air pollutants and problems get inside your house, it can be difficult to get them out without taking proactive indoor air quality measures.
How the iWave Air Purifier Can Help
One of the easiest and most popular ways to reduce indoor air pollutants is with an in-duct air purifier. At Kearney, we use the iWave, a popular and effective device that is placed out of sight inside your ductwork. The iWave-R air purifier uses patented technology, called needle-point bi-polar ionization, to reduce a number of air pollutants, including:
Viruses and bacteria
Pollen and mold
In fact, if you’re looking for effective COVID-19 air purification tools, iWave’s coronavirus lab testing has been conducted and the results are in: In just 30 minutes, the iWave had inactivated 99.4% of the novel coronavirus. An air purifier isn’t the only thing you’ll need to stay safe from COVID-19—at Kearney HVAC, we strongly recommend continuing to follow the CDC’s guidelines for safety—but if you’re looking for an added and effective level of protection that helps avoid unhealthy air quality, the iWave can be a great addition to your home.
