How We Use Cold Plasma to Blast Germs in Your Home

You may know that air conditioners work to purify the air in your home—it’s one of the most important features of a comfortable, air conditioned home! What you may not know is that, however frequently you change your air filters and scrub the counters and floors, germs and allergens run rampant in your home.

That’s why we recommend to our customers that they consider installing a Global Plasma Solutions Air Purification System in their home. If it sounds fancy, that’s because it is! It’s highly advanced technology that comes at a surprisingly affordable price point. Read on to learn exactly how these units use cold plasma to zap germs, allergens, odors, and bacteria in your home.

It’s all about ions.

Ions are found naturally in Earth’s atmosphere. The GPS patented technology produces the same levels of ions that are usually found around waterfalls, the beach, or high in the mountains and releases them in order to recreate those levels of odor and bacteria control in your home! So, basically, life’s a beach!

The result of this ion release is better control of allergens, incredible odor elimination, and the destruction of pathogens. When we say pathogens, we mean virus, bacteria, and mold! When the ions combine on the surface of a pathogen, they rob the pathogen of the hydrogen necessary for them to survive. The result is an inactive pathogen—meaning a pathogen that cannot latch on to you, your kids, or your visitors!

Yes, it’s affordable.

While there is a cost up-front, the GPS technology is much more affordable than its competitors, mainly because it does not require that you regularly replace parts or pay for frequent maintenance. Not to mention the medical bills and allergy prescriptions that you’ll be saving money on!

It was important to our team at BNG Heating & Cooling that we find a product that would have incredible benefits to our customers while maintaining a low price point. With the GPS Air Purification System, we’ve done just that! Go ahead and give us a call so that we can bring a crew in to find out if your home is a good fit for one of these systems.

Your Guide to Furnace Filters

The air filters that you walk past every day—in the wall or on the floor of your common areas—are easy to remember.

It’s pretty noticeable when air isn’t flowing as freely or when there’s a musty scent filling the room. We find that most of our customers aren’t as likely to remember the furnace filters that need changing.

When we discover that their home comfort issues lie in an unchanged furnace filter, their energy bills drop, the air quality in their home improves, and their furnace goes back to functioning normally.

Here are some of the basics about furnace filter maintenance that you may not already know:

They’re crucial to your furnace’s function.  

This is because most people don’t give much thought to their furnaces—as long as it’s keeping them cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  If you’re one of those people (it’s okay—that’s what we’re here for!), here’s exactly what a furnace does.

The furnace filter, specifically, protects the blower fan from the dust and other debris that the return duct is pulling in.

They should be changed regularly.

Likely way more regularly than you’re changing them right now.

It’s recommended that you change out or clean furnace filters every three months.

This will keep your furnace running at tip-top efficiency! We know this is a hassle and easily forgettable, and that’s why we include furnace maintenance in our maintenance packages. We send you reminders on the most important home comfort to-do’s!

If you’re taking care of your furnace filters, you’re taking care of your furnace.

Clean, operational furnace filters are completely essential to the smooth functioning of your furnace, which is essential to the smooth functioning of your entire home comfort system.

Letting yourself slide on furnace filter maintenance could have serious consequences to both your system and your wallet.

You don’t want to get stuck with premature replacement costs OR high energy bills.
