Air Purifying Systems

The average person spends 90% of their time indoors, most of it inside their own home. We like to think that the air within our home is clean and pollutant-free, but surprisingly enough, this is rarely the case. It doesn’t matter how often you change the filter on your home heating and cooling systems, biological and chemical contaminants such as mold, bacteria, viruses, allergens, and odours are able to pass through even the highest-efficiency filters like water through a strainer. Protect your family with proven filtration methods – invest in a state-of-the-art air purifying system from Arctic Heating & Cooling.

Understanding the Risks

Allergens reduced by air purification systemsEnvironmental Protection Agency studies of human exposures to air pollutants have found that indoor levels of pollutants may be up to 100 times higher than outdoor levels. This is because today’s homes are so well insulated that they actually trap humidity and pollutants within their walls. According to specialists, central ventilation and filtration systems can effectively eliminate airborne pollutants and excess humidity from your home, thereby protecting your family’s health and extending the life of your property.

Purification Options

Arctic Heating & Cooling currently offers two types of air purification systems: air exchangers and ultraviolet purification systems.

Air Exchangers

Arctic Heating & Cooling carries the full line of Venmar Air Exchangers (click link to view manufacturer’s website). Venmar Air Exchangers are designed to expel polluted and humid air from the home, replacing it with fresh, filtered air several times a day. As a result, your home is continually purified, creating an atmosphere that’s safer and cleaner for your family. Venmar Air Exchangers help eliminate odours and allergens, as well as remove condensation and excess humidity. Many models are equipped with HEPA filters, and some include heat recovery devices for enhanced comfort.

Electronic Air Cleaners

Electronic air cleaners are an advanced and easy to use whole-house solution that captures up to 99.98% of airborne particles from the air passing through the filter. When air is returned to the furnace or air handler, it passes through a screen. A positive electrical charge is then sent through fine wires stretched across the air stream immediately behind the screen. As a result of this, the dust particles pick up a positive charge; the particles then pass through plates or grids that are negatively charged. As we all know, opposites attract, and the dust particles collect on the plates. The air that flows through the filter is clean and odour-free.

Ultraviolet Purification Systems

The sun’s rays play a vital role in purifying the air that we breathe. Ultraviolet light from the sun is constantly irradiating the Earth’s atmosphere, destroying biological and chemical irritants. The Sanuvox Ultraviolet Air Purification Systems (click on link to visit manufacturer’s website) offered by Arctic Heating & Cooling replicate this natural process in order to drastically improve indoor air quality. Sanuvox Ultraviolet Air Purification Systems are designed to neutralize biological and chemical contaminants including mold, bacteria, spores, viruses, allergens, ciarette smoke, cooking and pet odours, garbage and sewer odours, VOCs, diesel fumes, and thousands of other air borne contaminants.

Arctic Heating & Cooling carries residential, commercial and industrial grade air purification systems.
