We’re experts at keeping our customers comfortable, but our work doesn’t stop there. A comfortable home should also be a healthy home. The push for modern construction to be sealed for efficiency is great for protecting the budget, but it also can increase indoor air pollution that results from many household items.
A variety of things make their way into indoor air. A big offender is called volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. These come from household cleaners, air fresheners, carpets, paints and even that new bed. Make no mistake, heavy hitting manufacturers of cleaners and room freshening products that you purchase at any major store could be polluting your home.
Other causes of indoor air pollution come from mold spores, bacteria, viruses, allergens, dander…you get the idea. Indoor air quality products for the most part are not mutually exclusive. We offer many options from different manufacturers that will drastically change the health of your indoor air.
When your windows and doors are shut tightly during a cold winter or hot summer, indoor air can become both stale and polluted. Opening the windows might help the problem, but that will cause discomfort and high utilities. What’s the answer? A ventilator. They can exchange stale air for fresh air, and transfer heat energy in the process!
Ultraviolet air treatment is used for indoor coils and ducts. The indoor coil is used when air conditioning, and it can become covered with mold and other grime which hurts air quality and efficiency. A UV lamp kills mold, bacteria and other airborne pollutants in the coil and in your duct system.
Winter air is dry, and that isn’t good for your body. We all know what dry, itchy winter skin feels like. And we know the ZAPS that happen when touching anything metal! A whole house humidifier will do away with the discomfort of dry winter air. Plus, humidified air feels warmer, so you’ll save on gas bills too!
This advanced filtration device replaces the normal, thin air filter that comes with most air handlers or furnaces. The Lennox PureAIR is able to filter microscopic particles from indoor air such as bacteria, mold spores and more. Plus, the Lennox PureAIR purifier is one of the only ones that doesn’t produce ozone.
