There are many HVAC products that can improve how an air conditioning system performs. Some products enhance a system’s overall efficiency, and others effectively prevent situations that can lead to a breakdown. If you want to improve the air quality in your Woodbridge, VA, home, there are solutions for this as well.
How an HVAC System Distributes Air Through a Home
The cooling cycle begins when a surge of electricity is produced within an air conditioning system’s power supply. This power pushes refrigerant through coolant lines that run from the outside unit to the indoor equipment.
During this process, all the warm air in a home is extracted into the ducts by a fan. When the refrigerant moves from the compressor coil to the evaporator coil, it changes the temperature of the air by removing the heat.
At this point, all the cool air from the AC unit is channeled through various vents connected to ducts. As the currents move around interior spaces, they gradually lower the temperature in a home.
Energy-Efficient HVAC System Health Concerns
Although the latest air conditioning systems save energy by recirculating air, there are a few concerns that every homeowner should consider. In order to recirculate air safely, the air that’s already moving around a home has to be clean. If the air has contaminates or pollutants, the air quality will never improve while the HVAC system is running.
The Most Common Air Pollutants in a Home
The air quality in an average home varies based on the pollutants in the environment. Most pollutants that trigger allergies are invisible, so you’ll need advanced products to extract them. We offer a variety of air quality solutions that can get rid of the most common air pollutants, such as:
- Biological contaminants.
- Carbon monoxide.
Our Air Purifiers
Our air purifiers have a fan and a filter. When air travels through the mesh on a filter, many particles and pollutants are trapped on the material. As this happens, fresh clean air flows out into the environment.
If you need an air purifier that can capture bacteria, pet dander, pollen and more, our Infinity Air Purifier is a great choice. This system cleanses the air by emitting a strong electrical charge that breaks down pathogens.
The Comfort EZ Flex Cabinet Air Filter can improve the air quality in an entire home. If pollutants fly into this air purifier, its deep pleats can capture particles as large as 1.0 microns.
A humidifier for a home is installed in the ductwork. In order to operate, the system needs a connection to the main water supply.
We offer a 34-gallon steam electrode-powered humidifier by Performance. It runs quietly as it improves the air quality in a home, and it has unique technology that can tolerate the most common water conditions during basic operations.
If you’d like a unit that has a smaller water capacity, the Performance Large Bypass Humidifier is worth considering, as it holds 17 gallons of water. This product is fairly quiet because it’s powered by a furnace.
The Performance Fan-Powered Humidifier is one of our quietest units. It’s a great product for a home that has a traditional or vintage layout since its design is flexible. We can incorporate this humidifier with a fan coil or furnace in a variety of configurations.
Other Air Quality Products
We also provide ventilators and UV lamps. If you want to breathe easier in your home, we recommend our Comfort Energy Recovery Ventilator or Performance Energy Recovery Ventilator. Carrier is the brand that we offer during UV light installation jobs; we stock the Performance Ultraviolet UVLCC1LP and the UVLCC1LP Germicidal UV Light.
