The problems with indoor air quality are more recognized
everyday. We are all affected by the quality of our air. If you
suffer from allergies, headaches, fatigue, or any number of other
symptoms, the quality of your homes air might be to blame.
Some common pollutants that could be hampering the quality of
your life are mold, bacteria, dust mites, and pollens just to name
The air quality systems you'll find at Thornton's are top of the
line. We offer a variety of air filtration systems using HEPA,
media and electronic filters. We also offer systems that use
ultraviolet light to kill harmful pollutants.
Media filters are large filters that can be attached to your
forced air system. These thick filters prevent harmful materials
from being re-circulated through your home.
HEPA are efficient filtration devices that trap 99.97% of
particles that pass through (0.3 microns or larger) so they are not
allowed to be re-circulated. A powerful fan channels a variety of
particles through the HEPA air filter, including dust, pollen, mold
spores, and other allergens.
Electronic air purifiers charge the particles in the air and
then attract them back into the system. They are safe and can be
cleaned quickly and easily. Electronic filters also take away the
need to replace filters on a regular basis.
UV light changes the DNA makeup of the cells that are in your
air. This alteration disables organisms such as viruses, bacteria,
and mold, and prevents them from being able to reproduce. In
addition, these pollutants are pulled back in and disposed of.
Many filtration systems pull all particles out of the air,
including humidiy (water) that is in the air. Humidity is important
in keeping your body hydrated which prevents dry, scratchy throats
and dry skin. We can also install humidifiers that you can use in
conjunction with your air purification system to keep your home and
body at their maximum comfort level.
Thornton's high quality units are whole house solutions, unlike
less effective portable units. Those units are usually designed for
one room. Remember, with air quality you get what you pay for.
