Why You Need Indoor Air Quality Services
One of the reasons that indoor air quality is often so inferior in today’s homes is because they receive very little fresh air. To keep the HVAC systems in a house energy–efficient requires effective insulation to prevent heat from leaving or entering. But this traps the air as well, which circulates continuously, becoming stale, humid, and filled with pollutants picked up from around the rooms.
Solving indoor air quality problems first involves discovering the specifics. IAQ professionals will determine the source of the concern—dust mites, bacteria, chemicals, humidity, etc.—and then install an air quality system that will counteract it. Make sure that you hire only experienced technicians for this job, since selecting the wrong IAQ solution can backfire and make the situation worse.
We Offer Indoor Air Quality Systems
Our air quality specialists offer a variety of different services and installations that will clean your air and protect your ventilation system. Below are some of the different indoor air quality services that our team at Breathe Healthier Air provides:
The extensive ventilation system in a home will begin to collect dust, lint, and other debris over time. This is unavoidable. If nothing is done about this accumulation, it will lead to these unhealthy particles circulating through your home’s air. Professional duct cleaning, done every two to three years, will remove this major source of air contamination. It will also help keep your HVAC system from turning inefficient.
One of the basic but dependable ways to remove pollutants from a home is with special air filters fit into the HVAC system. Using a mesh of fibers to trap larger particles, an air filtration system can eliminate more than 99% of unwanted pollutants. Only professionals should install filters to make sure that an overly powerful filter doesn’t block airflow from the heater and/or air conditioner.
For counteracting minute pollutants, such as gas and odor molecules, an electronic air purifier is often the best solution. These installations do not use filters, but instead ionize a section of the air in the HVAC system to negatively and positively charge contaminating particles, then attracting them to a set of collector plates.
Humidity is one of the major causes of discomfort in Florida, and most homes can benefit from a dedicated dehumidifier installed in the HVAC system to help with the air conditioner. If you have a professional install your dehumidifier, you will enjoy lower AC bills and eliminate problems from water damage.
The vent that removes heat from your clothes dryer will become clogged with lint if it doesn’t receive routine cleaning from professionals. This is not only an inconvenience that will make the dryer work less effectively, it will become a fire hazard. Let us handle cleaning your dryer vent to keep your home safe.
Leaks in the ductwork in a home are a major contribution to energy waste. In fact, air leaks can account for losing up to 30% of the cooled/heated air coming from your HVAC system. Contact us to arrange for professional duct sealing that will take care of this common trouble.
What if you are unsure if your air ducts have leaks or not? Then schedule a duct testing session with us. We will close off your ventilation system and use advanced equipment to change the pressure inside the ductwork and monitor how much air is escaping. This will let us determine if you need sealing and where.
There are ways to bring fresh air into your home without also allowing in heat or allowing heat to escape. An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) draws fresh air into your HVAC system and pre–heats or pre–cools it with the indoor air. You’ll have fresh air without putting a strain on your AC or heater. ERVs also aid with balancing humidity.
Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) are similar to energy recovery ventilators in most ways. The difference is that they do not balance humidity, and they are more effective for homes that suffer from colder temperatures. Ask our IAQ experts about which type is best for your situation.
Inferior or damaged insulation can lead to an uncomfortable home and soaring energy costs, both during cold and hot weather. Let us use blow in insulation and spray foam to improve your home’s heat sealing.
If the problems with your indoor air come from bacteria, viruses, mold spores, or other organic pollutants, installing a UV air purifier is one of the best ways to deal with it. Contact us to find out more information about UV germicidal lights for your home.
