Enjoy Better Sleep

Come Inside for a Breath of Fresh Air.

How many times have you heard, or even used, the phrase “go outside for a breath of fresh air?” At T.F. O’Brien, we believe that the air inside your home should be fresh, clean and healthy, and we’re committed to making that a reality for our customers.

What You Should Know About Your Home’s Air Quality.

The air inside your home is often up to five times more polluted than the air outside your home.*

Today’s homes are built to keep in heated and cooled air and improve energy efficiency. But that also means that more contaminants like mold spores, bacteria, viruses, dust and allergens are trapped inside as well.

One cubic foot of air can contain more than 30 million pollutants.*

These pollutants can cause health problems and aggravate conditions like asthma and allergies.

Most standard HVAC system filters do not adequately remove harmful contaminants.†

Standard filters trap only the largest particles, allowing millions of microscopic contaminants to continue travelling throughout your home. Basically, with a standard filter, you’re recycling and recirculating the same polluted air, over and over again.

On average, we spend more than 60% of our lives indoors, at home.*

Without an effective air quality solution, you may spend the majority of your life breathing contaminated air, which can reduce your comfort and potentially lead to health issues. This is especially true during our cold Long Island winters, when we spend even more time inside.

The T.F. O’Brien Approach to Air Quality

While the process we use and the equipment we recommend depends on your heating and cooling system and can vary from one home to another, generally we take a three-step approach.

We filter the air by installing a highly efficient air cleaner. This is a much more effective solution than standard filters.

We install a photocatalytic oxidizing air purifier to chemically treat the air to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are the byproducts of common household materials like paint, carpet, vinyl flooring, air fresheners, cleaning products, and more, as well as other pollutants.

We install ultraviolet germicidal lights that kill up to 99% of airborne contaminants like mold, bacteria and viruses.

We may also recommend equipment to regulate your humidity levels.
