Aqua Pluming Heating & Cooling Services Cares About the Air Inside Your Home

Pristine Logo

Aqua Plumbing Heating & Cooling Services cares about your family’s health and the quality of the air inside your home. Allergies, illness, and long-term health can all be affected either in a positive or negative fashion depending on the quality of the air inside your home. According to the Environmental Protection Agency the air inside your home can be 2 to 10 times worse than the outside air. It is difficult for our immune system to keep up with the abundance of particles, germs and gases that are locked inside the tight, energy-efficient homes that are built with today’s construction methods.

Think about this: You know how when you see the sun’s rays streaming through a window and you can see all of the dust floating around in the sunbeam? There are millions of microscopic particles that float around in the air all the time. And those in the sunbeam are the ones that are actually big enough to see. Ninety eight percent of all airborne particles measure below 1 micron in size and are invisible.

Imagine breathing all of those in. Your body’s lungs are like a filter. They will filter out the larger particles, yet these smallest of particles that are potentially the most injurious to your health pass right through. Pristine Air “protects your air space” by clearing the air inside your home of harmful particles, biohazards such as viruses, and gases from chemicals.

What’s in Your Indoor Air?

Dangers of Indoor Air in the Chicagoland Area

As technical as indoor air quality and its related products can get, the solutions are rather simple. There are three phases of pollution in every home:







Description: dust, dust mite feces, dander, skin flakes, insect parts…

Can cause: runny nose, sore throats, congestion, sneezing, cough, wheezing, allergies and asthma attacks.

Optimum Solution: Pristine Air Polarized Media Air cleaner captures and holds even the smallest of airborne particles that pass through our lungs by magnetically attracting the particles to the fiber and carbon media, then plating those particles to the media not allowing them back into the air space.

Optimum Solution: Pristine Air Bypass HEPA system works in conjunction with the Polarized Media, for optimum results, or with other in-line filter products. For people with severe asthma or allergies the combination of the Bypass HEPA and Polarized Media Air Cleaner is the ultimate solution for faster particle control.

Description: viruses, bacteria, mold and other growth…

Can cause: respiratory infection, throat and ear infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis.

Optimum Solution:  Pristine Air UVC Germicidal units have 3.3 times more UVC power than standard UV lamps for both surface kill and airborne sterilization of germs and growth. We harness the power of the sun’s UVC rays to disinfect your air 24 hours a day naturally without using chemicals and sprays.

Description: odors, chemicals, pesticides, cleaning solvents, building material, formaldehyde, benzene, VOCs.

Can cause: headaches, nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, lethargy, memory lapse, lung problems.

Optimum Solution:  Pristine Air UVC/UVV Oxidizing system have the same powerful UVC lamp as the Pristine Air UVC Germicidal unit with an additional adjustable UVV lamp to control the gases and odors in your home. We harness the power of the sun’s UVC and UVV rays to disinfect and deodorize your air 24 hours a day naturally without using chemicals and sprays.

HEPA Filter

Adding the High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) doubles the speed of particle removal. HEPA filters are used in hospitals because they are considered the best filters on the market today. HEPA filters were originally developed by the Atomic Energy Commission during World War II to remove hazardous radioactive dust from manufacturing plant exhausts.

In order to receive a HEPA filter designation, a filter must collect 99.97% of a specific particulate that measures 0.3 microns in size, in tests established by the Institute of Environmental Sciences.  The Pristine Air Bypass HEPA system is 99.97% effective at .3 microns and removes particles as small as .01 microns.
