Did you know that improving your indoor air quality can help you improve your health? Frequently, the air quality inside your home or office is worse than the air quality outside. This is because buildings tend to have restricted airflow and are tightly sealed. Dust, allergens, and other contaminants can become trapped inside.
If you have a condition like asthma or other respiratory conditions, you may find that indoor air quality services, such as air filtration and duct cleaning, are beneficial.
At Homer Nine and Sons, Inc., our indoor air quality specialists in Cranberry Township can help you identify the products and services that are best for your situation. For your convenience, we also serve customers in Cranberry Township, Bridgewater, and the surrounding areas.
From Air Filters to UV Lights, We Have You Covered
When was the last time you thought about the air quality in your home? As air is circulated throughout your home, dust, bacteria, mold, and other contaminants can build up in your air ducts. This means that every time you turn on your heater or air conditioner, these contaminants are being pushed out into your home.
However, there is something you can do about this. Our air filtration and UV light sterilization experts can provide you with the information you need to take control of your indoor air quality.
We offer a full range of indoor air quality services in Cranberry Township, including:
- Air duct cleaning
- Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
- Air purifiers and high-efficiency filters
- UV light air sterilization services
One of the most significant innovations in indoor air quality technology is the use of UV lights to sterilize your home's air. Ultraviolet light is extremely efficient at killing mold, bacteria, and other microorganisms. A germicidal light that emits a UV light is installed in your home's HVAC system. This light then sterilizes your air.
If you are looking for a way to improve your health, call one of our UV light specialists to find out if this method is a good fit for your home or office.
The iWave Air Purifier
If you or other members of your household suffer from allergies or other respiratory problems, it’s important that you ensure you have a steady supply of clean and healthy air. One way to do this is to install an iWave air purifier.
Installed directly into your AC or HVAC unit, its technology works by generating the same ions nature creates in waterfalls, lightening, or ocean waves. However, it does this in such a way that it doesn’t release harmful ozone or byproducts.
When these ions are injected into the air stream, they break down passing pollutants and gasses into harmless compounds such as oxygen, water vapor, and carbon dioxide. These harmless compounds attach to allergens, smoke, pollen, airborne particles and more, clinging to each other until they’re heavy enough to be picked up by the air stream and caught by the air filter.
As the ions come into contact with viruses, bacteria, or mold, they remove the hydrogen atom from the pathogen. Without hydrogen, the pathogen no longer has a source of energy and thus it dies.
Some of the benefits of installing an iWave air purifier include:
- It requires no bulbs or replacement parts
- It effectively kills mold, mildew, bacteria, and viruses
- It reduces allergens, odors, smoke, static electricity, and dust particles in the air
- It reduces any airborne particles that can cause respiratory problems
There are two options of the iWave air purifier you can select from: the iWave-R, which self-cleans and doesn’t require any replacement parts, or the iWave-V, which does need periodic cleaning but doesn’t require replacement parts.

Why is Indoor Air Quality Important?
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is crucial for several reasons, and its importance is closely tied to the well-being and health of individuals.
Here are key reasons why indoor air quality is important:
- Health Impact: Poor indoor air quality can have significant health implications. Exposure to indoor pollutants such as particulate matter, allergens, mold, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) has been linked to various respiratory problems, allergies, and other health issues. Long-term exposure may contribute to chronic conditions and exacerbate existing health concerns.
- Occupational Productivity: In workplaces, schools, and other indoor environments, the quality of the air can directly affect the productivity and performance of individuals. Clean air supports better cognitive function, concentration, and overall well-being, leading to improved work or study environments.
- Respiratory Conditions: Individuals with pre-existing respiratory conditions, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), are particularly vulnerable to the effects of poor indoor air quality. Contaminants in the air can trigger or worsen respiratory symptoms, making it essential to maintain clean indoor air for those with respiratory issues.
- Comfort and Quality of Life: Clean indoor air contributes to overall comfort and quality of life. Unpleasant odors, high humidity, and the presence of pollutants can create discomfort and negatively impact daily living. Good IAQ ensures a more pleasant and livable indoor environment.
- Sleep Quality: The quality of indoor air can influence sleep patterns and overall sleep quality. Allergens and irritants in the air may disrupt sleep, leading to issues like insomnia or sleep disturbances.
- Long-Term Health Effects: Prolonged exposure to certain indoor pollutants has been associated with long-term health effects, including cardiovascular diseases, neurological issues, and even cancer. Reducing exposure to indoor pollutants is a preventive measure against these health risks.
- Vulnerable Populations: Certain groups, such as children, the elderly, and individuals with compromised immune systems, are more susceptible to the effects of poor indoor air quality. Protecting the air quality is especially important for these vulnerable populations.
- Sick Building Syndrome (SBS): Poor IAQ can contribute to sick building syndrome, where occupants experience a range of symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, and respiratory issues without a clear, identifiable cause. Improving indoor air quality can help alleviate symptoms associated with SBS.
- Regulatory Compliance: In some cases, adherence to indoor air quality standards and regulations is mandatory. Compliance with these standards is essential for public buildings, workplaces, and other establishments to ensure the health and safety of occupants.
Given these factors, maintaining good indoor air quality is not just a matter of comfort but a fundamental aspect of promoting a healthy and sustainable living and working environment. Regular monitoring, proper ventilation, and minimizing sources of indoor pollution are essential steps in ensuring good IAQ.
