There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.

Stay Healthy with an Air Filtration and Purification System

March 12th, 2020

Keeping your home air safe has never been as important as it is now. In light of global health concerns, we found it important to talk about what a UV air purifier and, to a lesser extent, what a HEPA filter can do to support the indoor air quality and cleanliness of your home.

The Fantech HEPA Air Filter

With a Fantech HEPA Air Filtration System, you can filter the air that comes into your home from the outside. HEPA filters are well known for being able to filter 99.9% of all air that goes through your HVAC system, meaning you’ll be breathing air that’s free of dust, debris, pet dander, and other contaminants.

The Honeywell 24V Ultraviolet Air Purifier

However, if you’re looking to stop microbial contaminants from causing harm to you and your family, then a HEPA filter won’t be able to do the job. An ultraviolet (UV) air purifier is the system for you.

The Honeywell 24V Ultraviolet Air Purifier runs in your ductwork, using ultraviolet rays and carbon cells to capture odor-causing airborne particles and transform them into harmless water vapor. The germicidal light will destroy germs and mold in your home while reducing volatile organic compounds as well.

Know the Difference

It’s important to know the difference between an air filtration system and an air purification system. Our Fantech HEPA Air Filter will filter out particles above a certain size category, but won’t do anything about microbial germs and mold spores. The Honeywell 24V Ultraviolet Air Purifier will eliminate said germs and mold spores. An ultraviolet air purifier has a unique advantage when trying to protect your home from microbial organisms that could make you sick.

While we often mention springtime as being perfect for air conditioning maintenance, it’s also a great time for heater maintenance in Bozeman as well. It’s not just because temperatures are starting to warm up so you don’t have to worry about going an hour or two without heat, but technicians tend to be more easily available during milder seasons like spring and fall.

No, our team isn’t free because nobody wants to call us, but every HVAC contractor tends to get a higher volume of calls and service requests during the hottest or coldest months of the year. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to have routine maintenance performed on your heater and you notice the ice melting on a warming spring day, then give our team a call.

Once you call us, then we can begin to explore the unique benefits that come from a service like this.

How to Safely Utilize a Gas Furnace

February 24th, 2020

We’re not going to give you a detailed description of how to take your gas furnace apart safely since that’s a job reserved for a professional technician. Instead, what we would like to talk about is the way that a homeowner can safely operate their system in the meantime when you don’t need the help of a professional.

Some homeowners get instantly turned off by the idea of having a gas burner in their home to provide heat, particularly because they don’t actually know how to utilize them as safely as they’re advertised. While true, gas is being burned in your furnace and that is essentially combustion and producing fire and gases, a furnace is set up precisely to mitigate the flames and gas in order to only provide your home with warm fresh air.

Still unconvinced? Good. We’re going to go into detail about the safety of your gas furnace in Bozeman and let you in on some operating tips to keep yourself safe and happy!
