Contact Kresge Services to upgrade your air filter — for your family’s health.
Most heating and cooling systems still use a basic air filter. These filters were originally designed to protect the equipment and not the people served by the equipment. The average air filter is only capable of removing 3–5% of the particles that pass through it.
Today, there are several types of permanent air filters available in various efficiencies that can help you filter the air in your home. If you suffer from allergies, asthma, hay fever or other breathing difficulties, there is an air filter that can help you. We can even provide you with the same type of air filter used in hospital operating rooms.
The interior of your ductwork and air conditioning equipment provides an ideal environment for mold growth — especially in the air conditioning unit’s drain pan where it is dark, damp, and filled with nutrients. Kresge Services has found that the most successful way to handle HVAC system mold is through Ultraviolet (U.V.) germicidal lights.
Ultraviolet light has been used to kill microorganisms in hospitals, barber shops, laboratories, pharmaceutical plants, and at the nation's Center for Disease Control. Residential ultraviolet units have been independently tested and proven to be effective in the constantly moving air environments of heating and cooling systems, killing mold and bacteria quickly.
For most people, the original motivation for installing the lights is to abate mold and allergens. However, they are also pleased to learn that many hidden odors are also eliminated with U.V. technology.
