San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
With Mountain Cedar allergy season officially finished, the doors are about to open to welcome in Oak allergy season. Champion AC, San Antonio’s most trusted air conditioning company, will highlight Indoor Air Quality to encourage San Antonians to be aware and rid their homes of allergens, contaminants and other airborne bacteria and viruses.
According to Sylvana Research, last year’s oak pollen count raised as high as 16,000 pollen grains per cubic meter. The three allergy seasons saw some of the highest numbers it had in ten years. This year, Mountain Cedar season, which Dr. Paul Ratner described as “intense, but shorter than average,” wrapped up in early February. Typically, the season runs through the month’s end. The city saw its highest cedar count of the season, which runs from December through February, on Jan. 13 at 32,000.
Due to the intense levels of pollen and allergens, Champion AC is especially focused on the importance of clean air in the home and encouraging San Antonio residents to use various resources and tools to enhance Indoor Air Quality.
“With the intensity of the allergy seasons, Indoor Air Quality is a direct solution,” said Champion AC co-owner Ben Hubbert. “We are introducing residents across the city to IAQ systems that use UV lights to sterilize mold, germs, allergens and viruses that are captured in a matrix and transformed into harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide.”
One such system that Champion AC will recommend, especially to take care of the allergens, is the APCO Fresh Aire UV system. The system is installed in the ductwork of the central air system and is designed to help reduce odors, toxic chemical vapors, germs and mold in the home. APCO scientific studies show that UV light can kill 90 percent of microbes within ten minutes, and after 24 hours, 99.9 percent are killed.
Champion AC also points to energy savings, reduced maintenance costs and microbial disinfection as other benefits of using the APCO system and other UV light systems for IAQ purposes.
