While it may be surprising, poor indoor air quality is actually considered one of the top environmental health risks. Depending on the type of pollutant and how well your home is insulated, these airborne particles can cause a variety of adverse health effects. Oftentimes, the source of poor air quality can be appliances, such as your stove, but are most commonly things like dust mites and mold. To get an idea of the types of pollutants or particles that could be affecting your home, view the table below:

As you can see, whether it be the result of painting a room in your home or just your average dust accumulation, the air inside your Michigan home can easily become polluted with unwanted particles, which could ultimately lead to health effects. For instance, mold is known to cause respiratory illnesses as the cooling system in your home can spread the mold spores throughout. Fortunately, an air purifier can help eliminate the aforementioned particles and pollutants.Ensuring Cleaner Air: Applegate's Ultraviolet Air Purifier

How the UV Air Purifier Works
- AC Unit
- Humid Climate (key for Michigan homeowners)
- Pets, Appliances, and other sources of odors
Because mold spores are a common occurrence in regards to poor air quality, the UV air purifier is designed to eliminate mold spores on the air conditioning coil, which helps improve airflow. The AirBRIGHT™ system, on the other hand, utilizes ultraviolet rays and carbon cells to capture odor-causing particles and transforms them into harmless water vapor. With little to no maintenance required, the UV air filter allows you to carry on with daily life as it works to keep the air within the home clean and free of harmful particles.Call Us For Cleaner Air Today
