But for people with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions, spring can mean sniffling, sneezing, and discomfort.

While there isn’t much we can do about pollen and other allergens outside, fortunately, there are ways we can improve the quality of the air inside our homes. In this article, we’ll discuss two products that can help you and your family enjoy improved indoor air quality (IAQ) this spring, and how T.F. O’Brien can help. Keep reading to learn more!

What products can help me get better indoor air quality?

There are many different types of IAQ products available that can help people get better air quality in their homes. Air cleaners, air purifiers, and advanced filtration are all types of IAQ products that help eliminate particulates and pathogens from your home’s air. Two products that offer incredible air cleaning benefits include the Air Scrubber by Aerus® and the REME HALO®.

Air Scrubber by Aerus

The Air Scrubber by Aerus provides both air and surface purification. It attaches directly to your HVAC system’s ductwork and effectively reduces allergens, viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants in both the ambient air and on surfaces when the HVAC fan is running. The Air Scrubber has been proven to reduce up to 99.9% of many common airborne and surface contaminants.

The REME HALO purifies the air in your home using ultraviolet light and other proprietary technologies to improve your home’s indoor air quality. It is able to produce low levels of hydrogen peroxide in the air that circulates through your HVAC system, which allows it to effectively reduce bacteria, viruses, mold spores, odors, and other contaminants both in the air and on surfaces.

How can T.F. O’Brien help improve my indoor air quality?

At T.F. O’Brien, we take a proactive, three-step approach to helping our customers enjoy the best indoor air quality possible.

  1. We filter the air by installing a highly efficient air cleaner. This is a much more effective solution than standard filters.
  2. 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.
  3. We install ultraviolet germicidal lights that kill up to 99% of airborne contaminants like mold, bacteria and viruses.

Depending on your home’s needs, we may also recommend equipment to regulate your humidity levels. No two homes are the same, and we’ll be happy to send one of our Home Comfort Advisors to meet with you at your convenience to evaluate your unique situation and make recommendations.
