Indoor air quality is a topic that’s been on the minds of a lot of Americans. With the recent wildfires in Canada bringing ash, soot, and smoke to much of the northern and eastern US, indoor air quality services are something that are in high demand as more and more people are feeling the effects of poor air quality in their homes.
Many people will purchase a single air purifier and think that’s good enough. However, they have many shortcomings. To truly tackle the problems caused by poor air quality, you need whole house solutions. Let’s go over your options for improving your home’s IAQ and why those big-box store air filters just won’t cut it.
Portable Air Filters
Although portable air filters have their benefits, in order to use these to clean the air throughout your entire home, you’d need one in just about every room. Although they can be inexpensive to purchase, the filters are usually costly and need to be replaced frequently. When you add up the expense of how much they cost to run along with the purchase of filters, they don’t make sense economically.
Portable air filters are also not effective at filtering a large number of pollutants. According to Healthline, portable air purifiers also may not be beneficial against mold, nicotine and other gaseous pollutants, animal dander, especially from involuntary rodent infestations, cockroach allergens, some types of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), dust mites, and pollen.
Whole House Solutions
A whole house air purification system is just what it sounds like: it purifies the air throughout your entire home. They are relatively easy to install for a professional HVAC contractor (especially a team such as ours with NATE- and EPA-certified technicians). Once installed, maintenance is fairly straightforward and the system is inexpensive to maintain.
We provide several indoor air quality services and systems that can give you cleaner and healthier air:
- Air Filtration Systems: For many homes, basic air filter installations into the ventilation system will manage the pollutants circulating around the home. Filters trap particles with fiber mesh or other media, and are simple to maintain.
- Air Purifiers: When air filtration won’t thoroughly do the job necessary for a home, electronic air purifiers can eliminate the smaller contaminants. UV air purifiers can even get rid of microorganisms like viruses and bacteria.
- Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers: With our dry winters and sometimes humid summers, using special whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers can make an enormous difference in comfort and energy use throughout the year.
- Energy and Heat Recovery Ventilators: If you want fresh air circulation in your house but don’t want those outside temperatures getting in, these ventilation devices are the answer. They pre-heat and pre-cool the fresh air brought into your home.
We are proud to offer air quality systems from the best manufacturers using the most advanced technology. We wouldn’t install any indoor air quality device in your home that we didn’t think could do exactly what you needed from it.
