Ultravation-Solaris-Whole-House-Air-PurifierThe air circulating in your home can help or hinder both your comfort and your health. There are different things you can do, and systems that you can use, to help boost IAQ to the level that you want.

Using an ultraviolet light air filter is one of the ways that you can improve the quality of the air in your home. These filters use ultraviolet light to purify the air that enters your home through your ductwork.

Our Ultravation Solaris Whole House Air Purifier is a great addition to any home HVAC system. Installed within you ductwork, it helps to purify the air that cycles through your comfort systems and heads off viruses and bacteria at the pass.

When you pair a whole house purifier with consistent healthy hygiene practices such as washing your hands, you can enjoy and happier and healthier home all year long.
