When it comes to indoor air quality, every homeowner should be concerned. With the move toward more energy-efficient design, homes in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. have been built tighter, meaning houses are sealed more effectively. This has inadvertently led to more contaminated indoor air.
The increased popularity of double glass windows, emphasis on insulation, and pervasiveness of weather stripping has led to a decrease in indoor and outdoor air exchange. When fresh outdoor air can’t flow into the home, you save money on utility bills, but increase the likelihood of stagnant and polluted indoor air.
To counter the unintended side effects of energy-efficient home improvements, consider installing a whole house air purifier system to improve indoor air quality.
A whole house air purifier integrates into your existing HVAC system, taking the air that passed through your home’s ductwork and removing biological contaminants as air circulates through your central air system.
The air is drawn through your home’s intake vents and passes through one of four types of high-performance air purifying systems: flat, extended media, electronic and ultraviolet. Each method is used to improve indoor air quality and increase the comfort of your home.
Americans spend approximately 90% of our time indoors, so we should be concerned about the air quality in which we eat, sleep, and play! Almost any home — and its occupants — can benefit from whole house air purification in their HVAC system.
There are numerous reasons to consider installing a whole house air purification system, but your health is the most important. Neither old nor new homes are exempt from the harmful, invisible pollutants floating in your air.
These harmful particles can lead to many problems including:

John C. Flood offers installation of an Air Knight UV whole house air purifier. This specific model leverages germicidal UV lights that work with filtration by reducing biological contaminants 24/7 — even when your HVAC system isn’t running!
The Air Knight air purifier uses patented technology including high intensity UV light, the humidity in your home, and a quint metallic catalyst to create vaporized hydrogen peroxide and millions of positively and negatively charged ions that are then distributed through your HVAC system into your home. The vaporized hydrogen peroxide attacks harmful pollutants in the air, eliminating bacteria, viruses, and mold spores on contact wherever they exist in your home, in the air, and on surfaces like your countertops and doorknobs.
This whole house air purifier system is installed on the supply side, immediately after the A-Coil or on the return side prior to the fan coil unit, so it doesn’t cause any disruption in your home.
Even if you’re constantly cleaning your home, there’s no amount of dusting, vacuuming, or washing that can eliminate air pollutants as effectively as a whole house air purification system. Homeowners in the Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. region have trusted John C. Flood to maintain pure indoor air quality for over a century.
If you choose to install a whole house air purification system, you’ll see a reduction in allergies and other respiratory health issues. We care about your family’s comfort, which is why we’re currently offering $100 off an Air Knight UV Air Purifier installation.
