An effective, comprehensive way to improve your indoor air quality

We spend 90 percent of our time indoors. And the unfortunate fact is that indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air.

What does this mean for you and your family?

To begin, your indoor air quality has a direct impact on breathing ailments like asthma. This is most acute in older adults and children. These pollutants worsen allergies, dry out your skin and even accelerate damage to wood finishes and artwork.

The air filter on your furnace can catch some debris, dust, mold and other toxins — but not nearly all of it. That’s why, at Cubby Oil & Energy, we sell, install and service indoor air quality fixes. The most effective of these options is our whole-house air purifier. Here’s how it works.

How does an air purifier work?

We sell and install ultraviolet (UV) light air purifiers. These devices provide a small internal chamber through which the air in your home’s ventilation passes. This chamber contains intense UV light. It zaps airborne bacteria, viruses, debris, and other pollutants and eradicates them.

This prevents these toxic elements from recirculating through your heating and air conditioning ducts and lowers your indoor air quality.

What are the benefits of a whole-house air purifier?

Of course, the most important benefit you receive from installing an air purifier is an indoor environment that promotes better health for you and your loved ones. Whole-house UV air purifiers can lower instances of the common cold and also more significant illnesses like flu or tuberculosis. The Environmental Protection Agency suggests they can help reduce airborne transmission of COVID-19.
Other significant advantages of an air purifier include the following:

  • Less frequent cleaning. A UV air purifier will decrease the amount of dust and microorganisms accumulating in your home, reducing the amount of cleaning you need to do.
  • Fewer odors. Mold and other pollutants can create a musty, unpleasant smell in your living spaces. Air purifiers eradicate these particles.
  • Better heating and cooling system operation. Dust and other debris accumulate in your furnace, central A/C and ductwork. This leads to clogged mechanisms and inefficient operation. Installing a whole-house air purifier will reduce maintenance on your home’s comfort systems.
