Cleaner, Safer Indoor Air

COVID-19

The Coronavirus Pandemic has homeowners looking for ways to make their home as safe as possible. COVID-19 is and airborne virus that can continue circulating in your home’s air for extended periods of time. If you home has ductwork for forced air heating and cooling, there are several solutions for killing viruses and bacteria.

PureAiRx UV Light

UVC Lights

The Hayter Group carries whole-house air purification solutions from PureAiRx. UVC lights install directly into your ductwork or plenum. The high intensity Dual-Radiant™ UVC “H” Lamp disinfects the air by neutralizing airborne pathogens including bacteria, viruses and mould. According to the EPA, using a UVC light along with air filtration is an effective way of preventing the distribution of airborne viruses indoors.

Using a PureAiRx UVC light will drastically reduce the following:

  • Allergens
  • Organisms including; mold spores, bacteria and viruses
  • Noxious odors created by pets, smoke, solvents, and carpets
PureAiRx Bypass HEPA Systems

HEPA Filter

High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) filters are used in hospitals. They are the best filters for your home’s indoor air quality. The PureAiRx Bypass HEPA filter is 99.97% effective removing particles that are  .3 microns. The system will remove particles as small as .01 microns.

Easy Maintenance:

  • HEPA filter should be replaced every two years.
  • Carbon and pre-filters should be replaced every six months.
PureAiRx Polarized Media Air Cleaner

Polarized Media Air Cleaner

The PureAiRx whole house polarized-media electronic air cleaner installs directly into the 1” filter rack in the existing heating and cooling system. Particles are electrically charged (polarized) and then collected in the high efficiency media. The filter is 97% efficient at .3 microns.

Easy Maintenance:

  • No washing of components required.
  • Media pads are generally changed every 3 to 4 months.

HRVs & ERVs

A Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) keeps your home supplied with a steady flow of fresh outdoor air. As stale, warm air is expelled, the heat recovery core warms the incoming fresh, colder air before it is distributed within your home. This constant supply of fresh air eliminates drafts and provides increased home comfort. By providing proper ventilation, an HRV controls excess humidity in your home. Improved ventilation will also improve indoor air quality.

Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) are suited to climates with hot humid summers, like we have in Southern Ontario. Similar to an HRV, the ERV recovers the heat in cold season, however, it also captures the energy trapped in moisture, which greatly improves the overall recovery efficiency. The ERV works as follows: In air conditioned homes, when it is more humid outside than inside, the ERV limits the amount of moisture coming into your home. In winter, when the humidity level is reversed, the ERV limits the amount of moisture expelled from your home.
