Today, consumers are very concerned about the indoor air quality of their homes. Viruses, bacteria, pet dander, mold spores and volatile organic compounds can easily circulate throughout the home on a continual basis with an operating HVAC system. These pollutants can cause upper respiratory problems, allergies and even worsen existing health conditions. Fortunately, there are air quality products on the market to keep your indoor air healthy.
Air Quality Solutions
- Air Cleaners: Today’s air cleaners don’t just filter the air, they trap and kill airborne pathogens like mold, viruses and bacteria. These air cleaners can function for the whole home and re-purify air up to eight times an hour.
- Humidifiers: Humidifiers help keep moisture levels comfortable with smart controls. They are ideal for preventing the growth of mold. There are even humidifiers that work in conjunction with a furnace.
- UV Lamps: UV Lamps can enhance indoor air quality. These germicidal devices zap mold and bacteria in the home and on the components of your HVAC system like the indoor coils. Advanced UV lamps can also measure and detect CO levels in the home.
- Ventilators: Energy recovery ventilators are designed to keep the fresh air flowing without losing cooling or heating power. These units expel polluted air and refresh the indoor air with fresh outdoor air. At the same time, they pre-temper the air flowing into the home and recover energy.
