It also means that you and your loved ones will spend much more time indoors. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air is regularly three to five times more polluted than outdoor air, and in some circumstances, it’s 100 times more polluted!

At Cubby Oil & Energy, we are committed to ensuring the healthiest and most comfortable home environment for our customers. That’s why we offer a range of excellent indoor air quality (IAQ) solutions, including whole-house air purifiers.

What does an air purifier do?

Air purification systems prevent airborne toxins that your home’s air filters don’t catch from entering your living space through your vents. These systems are placed in your ductwork and use different technologies — including filters, ionization and ultraviolet (UV) light — to eradicate pollutants.
Cubby sells and installs UV light air purifiers with internal chambers that air passes through from your furnace or air conditioning system. The intense UV light is deadly for bacteria, viruses, debris and other pollutants.

How do you benefit from a whole-house air purifier?

A whole-house air purifier is a cost-effective and non-disruptive way to significantly improve your home’s IAQ. Here are four crucial benefits of installing one in your home:

  1. Air purifiers improve your family’s respiratory health. Are people in your home susceptible to intense allergies? Does a member of your family have asthma? Do you have infants or older adults living in your home? Air purifiers considerably reduce allergy and asthma triggers in your air and slow the spread of viral illnesses like the flu and COVID-19 (per the EPA). Everyone living with you will breathe easier!
  2. Air purifiers reduce household odors. Mold, dust, cigarette ash, and particulates from cooking can all lead to unpleasant smells in your home. Boosting your IAQ leads to a more pleasant-smelling household.
  3. Air purifiers reduce your dusting. When dust and debris from your vents enter your rooms, they settle all over electronics, bookshelves, windowsills and other places. An air purifier will tamp down this dust accumulation.
  4. Air purifiers boost HVAC system health. Air purification systems will also prevent many pollutants from settling in your heating and cooling equipment, slowing wear and tear, reducing breakdowns and extending its life expectancy.
