Now more than ever, keeping your home’s indoor air can be a matter of life and death, and technology is moving swiftly for innovations that meet air purification demands to combat new viruses. The professionals at BelRed Energy Solutions are constantly in pursuit of the best interventions, from maintenance such as duct cleaning and sanitization, to devices that keep customers breathing easily.

Superior air purification: the new Aerus air scrubber
The first air purifier scientifically proven to reduce COVID-19 on surfaces, the Aerus system uses a proprietary ActivePure® Technology and has been tested in independent labs and proven effective on bacteria, viruses, mold and fungi on surfaces and in the air. Units with ActivePure Technology pull free oxygen and water molecules in the air through ActivePure’s patented honeycomb matrix. The technology creates powerful oxidizers known as ActivePure Molecules that are then released back into the room, where they seek and destroy DNA and RNA viruses including SARS-CoV-2 (novel coronavirus), Swine Flu (H1N1), Avian Bird Flu (H5N8), Hepatitis A (HAV) and MS2 bacteriophage, regardless of their size, on surfaces and in the air. Aerus testing in an FDA-certified lab showed its Hydroxyl Blaster with ActivePure technology kills 99.98% of SARS-CoV-2 Virus on surfaces within seven hours. BelRed is proud to offer this innovation as part of its many air-cleaning solutions.

HEPA filtration and COVID-19
Air purifiers with HEPA filtration efficiently capture particles the size of (and much smaller than) the virus that causes COVID-19. The New York Times’ “Wirecutter” team recently explored the virtues of HEPA filtration in defending against the virus that causes COVID-19; the microbe is approximately 0.125 micron (125 nanometers) in diameter. It falls easily within the particle-size range that HEPA filters capture with extraordinary efficiency: 0.01 micron (10 nanometers) and up. A HEPA filter can significantly diminish the presence of viruses — somewhere in the high ninetieth percentile (99.94 to 99.97%). Good home filtration along with CDC-recommended practices of social distancing, wearing a face covering outdoors, washing your hands frequently, and disinfecting frequently-touched surfaces can give you the best possible outcome to stay healthy. BelRed can walk you through the many home filtration options for the best fit for your home.

Ultraviolet Treatments
UV treatment systems have been proven effective in reducing molds and certain airborne contaminants in your comfort system and in the air your family breathes. BelRed offers ultraviolet coil lamps  that keep damp indoor AC coils clean, make your air healthier to breathe and help maintain the efficiency of your cooling system. It also offers ultraviolet catalytic air purifiers, which convert odors, fumes and toxic chemicals into harmless water and carbon dioxide by-products with no ozone generation.

Air duct cleaning
Ducts in your heating and cooling systems can accumulate dirt and allergens; make them clean once more. At BelRed Energy Solutions, we offer precision duct cleaning services. This service not only removes the dirt unseen by the naked eye, but also other indoor air pollutants. In addition to a basic duct cleaning, BelRed offers duct sanitization with a product called EnviroCON that eliminates odor-causing microorganisms as well as those associated with mold, mildew and bacterial growth. This product has no perfumes or masking agents, and during application there is no evacuation required, no harmful chemical residue, no required rinsing or respirator needed.

From now through the Nov. 30, 2020, BelRed members can save 20% off of air duct cleaning. A duct cleaning will give you a healthier living environment. The dirt, dust, pet dander and other allergens in the duct work is being re-circulated through your home. Dust and dirt will reduce your HVAC systems airflow, causing your system to work harder to cool or heat your home.
