Indoor Air Quality Services
Indoor air quality affects everyone, but children and people who have asthma or allergies are more susceptible. According to a frequently cited EPA study, people spend 90 percent of their time indoors where pollutants concentrate. Even tightly sealed homes have trouble with a buildup of chemicals sometimes. There’s no way to avoid these invisible pollutants, but you can control them with indoor air quality products.
Customized Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Today, HVAC brands manufacture some effective systems that address general and specific air quality problems. If you’re worried about the purity of your indoor air, our experts can assess your home, discuss your concerns and recommend products that will conquer contaminants.
- Airborne Particles: Whole-house air purifiers trap common irritants of all sizes, including pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, and smog. These filtration cabinets do a far better job than the standard filters that are used for the main return duct. Plus, they can disable particles and viruses. Air cleaners remove up to 99 percent of particles and wipe out 96 percent of germs during their first 24 hours of operation.
- Chemicals and VOCs: Volatile organic compounds, such as formaldehyde, benzene, and toluene, are common indoor pollutants. These chemicals come from building materials, furnishings, adhesives, cleaning products and cosmetics. Filtration systems can’t capture off-gassed VOCs, but mechanical ventilators can reduce their concentrations by exchanging indoor and outdoor air.
- Microbes: Bacteria and particulates thrive in dark, damp areas, including bathrooms, crawlspaces, and your AC unit. In humid climates, homeowners experience problems with odor-causing bacteria that are responsible for dirty sock syndrome. We control this problem by installing a UV lamp in the evaporator coil. We also use electrostatic air cleaners that zap germs and viruses.
- Humidity: Regulating the amount of airborne moisture is an important job. In the summer, air conditioners remove excess humidity while they run, which makes your home feel cooler and more comfortable. In the winter, air humidifiers add several gallons of water vapor to your home daily, which relieves dry skin and irritated airways.
