Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

Air Purification Possible With New Combined Technologies

As a resident of northwest Arkansas, you probably consider yourself lucky to live in such scenic surroundings. With the Ozarks and Beaver Lake as a backdrop to our everyday lives, it’s difficult to believe that the very nature of this beauty can impact the air you breathe.  But thanks to the abundance of water as well as the high summer temperatures, biological containments such as mold and mildew are common properties of your home’s indoor air quality.  Pet dander, dust mites, viruses and bacteria only thicken the soup, so to speak. New air purification technology, however,  allows you attack the containments in your air on all fronts.

New air purification systems, such as those sold and installed by Paschal Heat, Air & Geothermal, use a combination of high-grade filters, ultraviolet (UV) light technology and metal catalysts to destroy the three classes of air contaminants found in your home. Pulling the air into the system, the filters destroy dust, dirt, pollen and allergens. The UV lights then destroy organic compounds like bacteria, viruses and fungi present in your home’s air. The UV lights are completely harmless to you and do not emit ozone, which is a known lung irritant. The last step in an air purification system activates a chemical catalyst which destroys odors and chemical vapors.

The quality of the air you breathe is important. Asthma and allergy sufferers especially experience a relief from symptoms when the air quality is high. Most of you probably already have a dehumidification system in place to control moisture, which in turn controls dust mites and mold that thrive in humid environments such as our lush surroundings.  But humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and the proper ventilation might not be enough to ensure your quality air purification.

If you are concerned about your indoor air quality or would like to talk about possible air pollutants within your home, give us a call at Paschal Heat, Air & Geothermal.
