Indoor Air Quality
Ultra fine particles such as dirt, dust, tobacco smoke and fireplace soot can remain airborne for a long time unlike larger particles that tend to settle on surfaces. Now more than ever there are products that can help you achieve the goal of cleaner air. Is it time to look for ways to improve the indoor air quality of your home?
- Does anyone living in your home suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems?
- If so, are their symptoms worse at night or in the morning?
- Does anyone have immune system problems?
- Are there infants or elderly family living in your home?
- Is there a smoker in the house?
- Are there any pets?
- Do you notice a stale or musty odor when the furnace or air conditioner runs?
- Do you notice dust on furniture shortly after cleaning?
- Is your home brand new or more than 10 years old?
- Does dirt or dust accumulate on your supply or return air grilles?
If you answered yes to two or more of the questions above, you may want to make some time to speak with one of our equipment specialists to find a personalized solution that will get your air its cleanest for your family.
There are two basic types of air purifiers – Room Air Purifiers and Whole House Purifiers.
Room Air Purifiers
If your home that doesn’t have forced-air heating or cooling, then a Room Air Purifier is what you need. This small unit is fairly mobile and can be moved from room to room. They come in a variety of models including those using HEPA filters, those with electronic precipitators and those using ionizer technology.
Whole House Purifiers
A Whole House Air Purifier System is built into the ductwork of a forced-air heating or cooling system and as such, filters the air in the entire house. There are several different types of Whole House Systems which we will discuss below.
A Pleated Media Cleaner is a solid choice if your home has forced-air heating. This built-in unit must be professionally installed in the ductwork of your heating system.
An Electrostatic Air Cleaner is wired into your home’s electrical system. This system does an excellent job of removing dust and smoke particles from the air.
With a high-efficiency particulate air or HEPA System, air filters trap small contaminant particles. HEPA filters offer some of the best filtration possible capturing 99.7% or more of floating particles.
In an ultraviolet air purifier or UV System, microbial particles are killed without any actual filtration. Instead, rays of ultraviolet light incinerate the particles as they pass through them.
