The Clean Air Defense System
The Clean Air Defense System is an advanced whole home air purifier that uses germicidal UVC lamps to eliminate living organisms in your home. UVC rays have more energy than any other aspect of the UV radiation spectrum and are able to neutralize viruses, bacteria, pathogens, fungal spores, dust mite eggs, and many other pollutants and contaminants. Christian can integrate the Clean Air Defense System into your existing HVAC system, and that makes it an affordable and effective whole-home solution.
Series3™ Model Germicidal UVC Purification Systems
The EPA recommends combing air filtration with germicidal UVC lamps as an effective way to prevent the spread of viruses in occupied living spaces. Homeowners seeking an integrated whole home air purifier should consider the Series3 line from SolaceAir. It includes both germicidal UVC and UVC/UVV systems that Christian can integrate into your existing ductwork or plenum. You also have the option of the Dual-Radiant™ UVC “H” Lamp that can eliminate airborne bacteria, viruses, and more. With UVC lamps, effectiveness is measured in watts, and Series3 lamps produce 180 microwatts at 1 meter, which is a significantly higher output than most UVC lamps on the market.
How Important is it to Breathe Clean Indoor Air?
The EPA lists indoor air pollution among its top health risks facing Americans. Many people worry about outdoor air pollution without considering that your indoor air will be just as polluted at least without the use of a whole home air purifier. In fact, indoor air pollution is often worse because a lack of ventilation leads to higher concentration levels. The EPA recommends removing potential pollution sources from the home, regular dusting and vacuuming, adequate ventilation, and some form of whole-home air purification. Indoor air pollutants can worsen asthma and allergy symptoms, cause respiratory irritation in healthy people, and make your environment more prone to bacteria and viruses. A whole home air purifier can help you breathe easier, sleep easier, and feel better on a more consistent basis.
Benefits of a Whole Home Air Purifier
Frequent headaches, chronic fatigue, sleeping problems, skin irritation, and respiratory inflammation are all potential side effects of indoor air pollution, and a whole home air purifier can eliminate them. Be mindful that without some form of mechanical air purification, it is impossible to enjoy indoor air that is cleaner than the air outside your home. Even the cars that pass your home exhaust harmful particulates that are drawn inside and present a real risk to the health of your family.

More Methods for Improving Indoor Air Quality
Optimizing indoor air quality requires a multifaceted solution that is unique to your home. Start by eliminating potential pollution sources, such as some household cleaners, candles, deodorizers, and overwatered houseplants. Dust often. Dust rooms top to bottom, and then, vacuum using a HEPA filter bag. You should also schedule Christian for periodic duct cleaning and a seasonal tune-up of your HVAC system. Consider investing in a whole home air purifier and also other indoor air quality equipment, such as an air scrubber, dehumidifier, and humidifier.
Air scrubbers were originally designed for use on the International Space Station. These units use germicidal UV light to eliminate dust, pollen, mold, VOCs, odor-causing bacteria, and much more. They are able to eliminate a wide range of pollutants and contaminants that hurt air quality.
The ideal approach is to inspect your filters each month and replace them when there are visual signs of dirt. Clogged air filters can cause your HVAC system to work harder in addition to causing indoor air quality issues. Neglecting your air filters will end up costing you more money down the road from your system not working efficiently.
The winter weather brings dry air and your home’s indoor air can get even drier as a byproduct of heating it. A humidifier actively moisturizes the air, which improves comfort and your overall respiratory health.
The summer weather brings higher humidity, and your AC may struggle to keep up. With a whole-home dehumidifier, your home will be more comfortable, and your AC will not have to work as hard. In return, your whole system will work more efficiently.
