The Difference Between UV and Ionization

Monday, June 13th, 2022

When it comes to air purifiers in Monroeville, IN, there are several different kinds you can invest in.

When it comes to whole-house air purifiers, two types of systems tend to do the trick. They’re very different from each other and we want homeowners to be aware of how these systems work and why you might invest in one or the other.

Keep in mind that our team can point you in the right direction. If you have any questions, make sure you call us!

UV Air Purifiers Keep Your Home Clean

Monday, August 14th, 2017

UV-air-purifierSummers in Indiana are defined by high temperatures and soaring humidity. That makes our environment a breeding ground for bacteria and germs of all varieties, and they can easily infiltrate your home to cause all manner of mischief.
