Indoor Air Quality Components
The EPA has reported indoor air quality as a high level concern for modern American homes. New construction seals improve heating and cooling efficiency, but also trap in pollutants like toxins, bacteria and mold to name a few. The answer is to incorporate indoor air quality products into your HVAC system. These work together to a complete indoor comfort solution.
Ventilation systems replace a portion of stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, reducing energy loss in the process. Air exchangers for instance, let users manually or automatically adjust the fresh air flow. The units retain energy used to heat or cool, saving money on utility bills.
Ultraviolet air treatment systems or UV Lamps are designed to prevent mold spore growth on air conditioning coils. This technology, used for decades in water treatment, helps reduce allergic reactions to mold while enhancing overall air quality. These sit inside your system next to the coils themselves.
Air Cleaners (advanced filtration)
Air cleaners offer an effective way to remove up to 94 percent of the particles - dust, pollens, pet dander, plant spores, fungi, bacteria, tobacco smoke, etc. - from the air that passes through the home. This helps avoid duct cleaning, access dust in the home and units with high MERV ratings catch microscopic organisms.
Whole House Humidifiers
Whole-house humidifiers replenish moisture to indoor air. This is important because dry air absorbs moisture from everything around it, affecting comfort, health and even household items like furniture/woodwork.
