Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air pollution can actually be worse for you than outdoor pollution! People spend the majority of their lives inside their homes and buildings, so clean indoor air with low levels of dust, particulates and contaminants and the right level of humidity is more important for day-to-day health and comfort.
Did You Know?
- The average home produces forty pounds of dust per year for every 1,500 square feet of living space.
- The same airborne particles which impact human respiratory health also may also damage home entertainment centers and computer equipment and can compromise air conditioning equipment by forcing it to work harder, thereby reducing its efficiency and possibly shortening its lifespan.
- Standard cardboard frame filters are only about 15% effective in removing dust and particles from the air. They have little or no effect on pollen, micro-organisms, smoke or other similar pollutants.
If you want cleaner, healthier indoor air, we can help supply and install the latest air filtration systems, air decontaminating UV lamps, dehumidifiers and humidifiers.
These do a slightly better job; they are 20% effective in removing dust and particles from the air, provided that they are rinsed off once a month. Because they can be cleaned and reused, they are more economical than disposable filters.
These filters are the top of the line throwaway type filter. They are very effective in removing indoor airborne pollutants with no electricity. They have up to a MERV 16 rating, and get replaced bi-annually.
Electronic Air Cleaners
These systems provide increased energy efficiency, prolonged AC equipment life and are 80% to 99.98% more effective in removing airborne pollutants than standard cardboard and electrostatic filters.
Whole House Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV)
In the summer, warm fresh air passes near outgoing conditioned air, cooling it down. At no time do the stale and fresh air streams mix, instead they pass each other separated by thin walls that allow only the air's energy to transfer, cutting your heating and cooling bills.
