Good filtration eliminates particulates from the air while UV light and the NASA Space Program certified Enviro Scrubbing technology will kill bacteria responsible for making you sick. These indoor air quality products will keep you healthy at home and increase productivity in your business.
Indoor Air Quality and Your AC System
The first line of defense in an HVAC system is the air filter. Midway Services is here to install the filtration system you need. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters offer the best protection for your money. We can install filtration systems that use certified HEPA filters. These certified filters can remove 99% of particulate matter that is .3 microns in diameter. To put this into perspective, most common mold spores are 25 microns in diameter and a human hair is 50 to 200 microns in diameter. That level of performance greatly increases indoor air quality. Midway Services filtration systems will help reduce allergy symptoms that are associated with the airborne dust, mold, and other particles further increasing your comfort and health at home or the office.
Another key to improving your health is to eliminate bacteria that cause colds and other illnesses.
Sick building syndrome (SBS) is a term developed and recognized in 1982 to describe epidemics of cold outbreaks in offices. The increase of air conditioner use in offices is attributed to the rise in SBS. Bacteria can build up in the ventilation systems and leave office workers suffering from a range of problems, such as breathing difficulties, headaches, sore throats, stuffy noses and itchy eyes. It is speculated that 80% of people working in air conditioned offices suffer from conditions caused by SBS. Midway Services understands that the key to increasing indoor air quality and reducing symptoms of SBS is to disinfect the air, killing the organisms responsible for the illnesses.
Midway Services offers two different methods for completely killing bacteria in the air. The first is by using ultra violet (UV) light systems to cleanse the air as it circulates through the HVAC system. Studies have shown that passing air through UV light will drastically improve people’s overall health. We also would like to point out that this is not only beneficial at home but can be even more beneficial in your business. Studies have shown that UV light systems provided a 20% reduction in all SBS symptoms in offices. There was 30% reduction in stuffy noses, 40% less respiratory complaints, and 50% reduction in muscular symptoms. Midway Services can install a UV air cleaner that will not only keep you comfortable and in good health at home but we can also help boost the productivity of your office.
Midway Services also offers installation of the Air Scrubber home purification systems. Air Scrubber uses Enviro Scrubbing technology to eliminate odors, reduce contaminates, and clean the air in your home. It is the only home purification system to be certified by the NASA Space Program. It is a very active approach to indoor air quality. Midway Services is dedicated to using these purification systems to keep our customers in good health.
