Our Indoor Air Quality Services
There are a variety of indoor air quality systems that we offer on our team. We offer such a variety because we understand that every home is different and everyone’s needs are different. Here are a few systems and services we provide:
Air Filters and Air Purifiers
Air filters and air purifiers are two of the best systems to eliminate indoor air quality issues. We work with ionization-based air purifiers and UV light air purifiers because we understand that different homes need different things. Air purifiers use ionization to charge particles in the air. Once they’re charged, they become attracted to the surface of the air purifier that’s the opposite charge. Then it’s able to be disposed of and removed from your home.
UV lights use ultraviolet lights to sterilize bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants on contact.
Air filters are great because they use high-efficiency media filters to filter out contaminants. You should consult a professional when you’re picking out an air filter because it is possible to have too much of a good thing with an air filter. Some air filters are meant for hospitals and commercial spaces. Those might be too much for your home.
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
The humidity balance of your home should be between 30% and 60%. If it dips below 30%, you’re going to notice static electricity and your home feeling cooler in lower temperatures. This is when you should consider a humidifier. Humidifiers put water vapor in the air to help balance your indoor air.
If your home’s humidity raises above 60%, then it’s time to consider a dehumidifier. With excess humidity you might notice mold and mildew growth, a feeling of intense heat when it’s already warm, and trouble getting your home comfortable. We’ll help you have the best humidifier around.
