Indoor Air Quality
Chicago & Northwest Indiana’s Indoor Air Quality Solutions
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air inside the average home can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside. Yet the average person spends up to 90% of the day indoors. Of course we don’t have much control over the outdoor pollution we encounter, but we certainly can do something about the indoor pollution. Learn more about how you can improve the indoor air quality (IAQ) around you with some of the great products we carry and service.
Air-purification systems attached to the furnace or air handler can remove and destroy small particles and bio-aerosols/Micro-organisms that are air borne contaminants before they are recirculated into the home like perfumes, cleaning supplies, paints, pet odors, cooking fumes, etc.
Air filtration systems combat indoor pollution by capturing even the smallest air borne particles and keeping them from recirculating back into the home’s air- combating indoor allergies by reducing pollen, dirt, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, viruses and even mold spores.
Dehumidifiers and humidifiers work with the home’s heating and cooling system to keep moisture levels balanced in every room providing the home owner with a stable and comfortable living.
Too Much Moisture can make the air feel stuffy and warmer than the actual temperature. High humidity levels can also promote the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria and viruses within the home.
Too Little Moisture can cause dry skin, sore throats and respiratory health problems. Low Humidity also causes annoying static electricity.
Ventilation systems replace stale, contaminated indoor air with outdoor air providing the fresh-air feel of an open window, with virtually no heat/energy loss or safety risk.
Ultraviolet Air Cleaning – Elimination
Germicidal ultraviolet lights dramatically reduce concentrations of potentially harmful micro-organisms like Pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, mold and other contaminants that can collect on the air-conditioning coil, reducing system efficiency and circulating through the home.
