AIR QUALITY SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR HOME

Make Sure Your family Is Breathing The Highest Quality Air Possible

The EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top 5 health risks and 97% of homes have indoor air quality issues. Indoor air quality has a greater impact on our health than outdoor air quality, as we spend almost 90% of our time indoors.

We Can Resolve Your Air quality Issues

Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Indoor air quality problems can have a major impact on occupant health and comfort. When indoor air quality issues arise, it is important to make sure that only highly-qualified individuals are called upon to investigate, mitigate and confirm that a problem has been properly resolved.

Humidifiers

Since the air in your home is always trying to reach its saturation point, it will absorb water wherever it’s found. That means it is stealing moisture from the bodies of you and your children, your pets, your furniture and even your house plants. By giving up moisture to the air, your skin, throat and nasal passages dry out and crack, leading to various physical discomforts. That’s why many doctors recommend humidifiers for allergy and asthma sufferers. Research has shown that 30% — 60% relative humidity is ideal. Outside this range, bacteria, fungi, viruses and mites thrive and multiply. As these creatures increase in number, so does your risk of being adversely affected.

If too dry of an environment is your problem, consider a humidifier.

Air Cleaners

The effectiveness of an air cleaner depends on how well it collects pollutants from indoor air (expressed as a percentage efficiency rate) and how much air it draws through the cleaning or filtering element (expressed in cubic feet per minute). A very efficient collector with a low air-circulation rate will not be effective, nor will a cleaner with a high air-circulation rate but a less efficient collector. The long-term performance of any air cleaner depends on maintaining it according to the manufacturer’s directions.

HEPA air cleaners are another great solution. Households with pets, tobacco/cooking odors or mustiness will find a dramatic difference in air quality.

AIR QUALITY SOLUTIONS

UV Light

Installing an Ultra-Violet Air Purifier accessory on your furnace or air handler helps eliminate odor-causing mold and fungus that can develop in an evaporator coil or drain pan. The Split UV-C/UV-B bulb neutralizes bacteria, mold & viruses in the air stream, and reduces chemical and biological odors.
