Our Indoor Air Quality Services

Air Purification Systems

These systems utilize filters and sometimes additional technologies such as UV-C light or ionization to remove contaminants like dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air, providing cleaner and fresher indoor air. Whole-house air purifiers are integrated into HVAC systems to treat the entire home’s air supply.

Humidity Control Devices

Humidity control devices help maintain optimal levels of humidity in the home. They can include humidifiers to add moisture to dry air or dehumidifiers to reduce excess moisture, both of which contribute to better indoor air quality and overall comfort.

Ventilation Solutions

Proper ventilation is essential for removing stale indoor air and introducing fresh outdoor air. Ensure proper ventilation throughout your home to reduce indoor air pollutants and promote better air circulation.

Electronic Air Cleaners

Electronic air cleaners use electrostatic precipitation or ionization to attract and capture airborne particles, including dust, pollen, smoke, and pet dander. These systems can complement traditional filters or operate independently to improve indoor air quality.

UV Germicidal Lights

UV germicidal lights use ultraviolet (UV) radiation to kill or deactivate bacteria, viruses, mold, and other microorganisms present in the air or on surfaces within HVAC systems. By disinfecting the air as it passes through the system, UV lights help maintain a cleaner and healthier indoor environment.

HEPA Filtration Systems

High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are capable of capturing microscopic particles as small as 0.3 microns with high efficiency. HEPA filtration systems can be standalone units or integrated into HVAC systems to remove airborne pollutants and allergens, promoting cleaner indoor air.

Each of these indoor air quality options offers unique benefits and can be tailored to address specific concerns and requirements, ensuring a healthier and more comfortable indoor environment for you and your family.

Questions About Our Service?

1. How often should I replace my furnace air filter?
The frequency of replacing your furnace air filter depends on various factors such as the type of filter, the level of household contaminants, and whether or not you have pets. However, as a general rule of thumb, it’s recommended to replace standard 1-3 inch filters every 1-3 months.
2. Should I buy an induct air cleaner?
Whether or not you should buy an induct air cleaner depends on several factors including your specific air quality needs, existing HVAC system, & budget. If you’re concerned about indoor air quality and willing to invest in a long-term solution that integrates with your HVAC system, an in-duct air cleaner could be worth considering.
3. How often should I replace my humidifier pad?
Our recommendation is to replace the humidifier pad every 1-2 months during the heating season when the humidifier is in regular use. The frequency of replacing your humidifier pad depends on several factors including the type of humidifier, the quality of water used, and how often the humidifier is used.
4. How do I set my manual humidifier and when do I change it?
Most manual humidifiers have a humidistat attached near the humidifier and has a knob or dial that allows you to adjust the humidity level. Turn the knob to your desired humidity setting. It’s recommended to maintain indoor humidity levels between 30% and 50% for comfort and health.
5. Is a whole home dehumidifier better than a portable one?
  • Whether a whole-home dehumidifier is better than a portable one depends on your specific needs and circumstances. Here are some factors to consider when making this decision:
    • Coverage Area: Whole-home dehumidifiers are integrated into your HVAC system and can regulate the humidity levels throughout your entire home. Portable dehumidifiers, on the other hand, are designed to dehumidify specific rooms or areas. If you need to dehumidify your entire home, a whole-home system may be more convenient and effective.
    • Maintenance: Whole-home dehumidifiers typically require less maintenance than portable units since they are integrated into your HVAC system and often have features such as self-draining capabilities. Portable dehumidifiers need to be emptied regularly and may require more frequent cleaning of filters and coils.
    • Energy Efficiency: Whole-home dehumidifiers can be more energy-efficient than portable units, especially if you have a large home or need to dehumidify multiple rooms. Since they are integrated into your HVAC system, they can work in conjunction with your heating and cooling system to remove excess moisture more efficiently.
    • Cost: Whole-home dehumidifiers generally have a higher upfront cost than portable units, especially when factoring in installation expenses. However, they may offer better long-term value, especially if you need to dehumidify your entire home consistently.
    • Noise: Portable dehumidifiers can be noisy, especially if you need to place them in living spaces such as bedrooms or living rooms. Whole-home dehumidifiers are typically quieter since they are installed as part of your HVAC system and operate more discreetly.
    • Control: Whole-home dehumidifiers may offer more precise control over humidity levels throughout your home, allowing you to set and maintain your desired humidity level with greater accuracy. Portable units may have limited control options and may not be as effective at regulating humidity levels in larger spaces.
  • If you need to dehumidify your entire home and value convenience, energy efficiency, and long-term performance, a whole-home dehumidifier may be the better option.
