Why It's Important to Have Good Indoor Air Quality

You may be asking yourself, why is it so important to have good indoor air quality. Here are some reasons:

Improved Health

Did you know that your indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than the outdoor air? And when you have a forced–air system, the contaminants in your air, including allergens and dirt, will swirl and swirl with each cycle. Using the right indoor air quality products can greatly improve your home's air quality, making it much healthier for you and your family.

Better Comfort

Indoor air quality can be affected by contaminants, imbalanced humidity and poor ventilation. If you are experiencing these kinds of problems in your home, and have the problems addressed with the installation of an indoor air quality product, you will see your comfort improve along with your air quality.

It's Good for Your HVAC System, Too

Your HVAC system battles poor indoor air quality just as much as you do. How? The system has to compensate for poor conditions, and will typically do so using more energy. For example, if there is excessive humidity in your home, your air conditioner will have to work harder to make your home feel cool and comfortable. Excess dust will coat the components and air ducts, compromising airflow and operation. In essence, adding an indoor air quality product to your HVAC system helps take some of the extra work load off it, and this helps lower the level of wear and tear and energy usage.

Air Duct Cleaning

The benefits of air duct cleaning are clear. Removing trapped contaminants from your home's air duct not only helps alleviate allergy sufferers from allergens recylced throughout the house, but it can also help relieve stress placed on your HVAC system caused by restricted airflow.

Air Filtration Systems

Do you suffer from allergies, or have someone in your home with a chronic respiratory condition like asthma? Upgrading your HVAC system with a quality air filter can significantly reduce the effects of these ailments while also increasing your home's indoor air quality.

Air Purifier

If you have concerns about biological contamination in your home, you will want to consider the installation of an air purifier. Air filters can help remove some biological contaminants, but not all of them. With an air purifier, you can eradicate biological contaminants from your home.

Dehumidifier

Excess humidity can lead to a number of indoor problems, including mold and mildew growth and the destruction of your personal property. A whole home dehumidifier removes the excess moisture from your home, avoiding these problems and leaving your home cool and comfortable.

Duct Sealing

Did you know that faulty ductwork can account for up to 30% of your home's total air loss? Professional duct sealing helps to reduce and even eliminate this tremendous air loss and improve your home's indoor air quality. Call us today for details!

Heat Recovery Ventilators

If you've been looking for a way to maximize the heating in your home, look no further than a heat recovery ventilator (HRV). These devices integrate seamlessly with your existing heating unit and make excellent use of your latent thermal heat energy while also improving your indoor ventilation.

Humidifier

Do you find that your skin dries excessively during the winter? Is your throat scratchy and dry? Then you'll want to consider the installation of a whole house humidifier. Our winters are harsh, and indoor heat only exacerbates the dry conditions of the winter months - but no when you have the right amount of moisture.

Radon Testing

Radon is a commonly–found gas, but at high levels it can be very dangerous. With our professional radon testing services, you will know the exact levels of radon in your home, and if needed, given recommendation on mitigating it.

UV Air Purifier

Biological contaminants are hard to get rid of for a few reasons, one of which is the small size of the particles – but not with an UV air purifier. The UV-C rays of an ultraviolet air purifier destroy biological organisms, eradicating them completely.
