Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work. Our process eliminates those contaminants.
UV Lamps zap the mold and bacteria that can sometimes grow in the moist environment of your air conditioning or indoor coils.
Central air filtration systems offer a number of advantages. They are out of sight (integrated into your home heating system, usually by the furnace), very convenient (you’ll never trip over one), and they are quiet during operation.
A central air filtration system filters the air as it cycles through the air ducts into the furnace. Over time, all the air in the house will pass through the system, and it will be cleaned and filtered each time it passes.
A true HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter is also known as an absolute air filter because of its high efficiency: true HEPA filters operate with a minimum efficiency of 99.97 percent.
MERV filters offer you hostpital quality air filtration. MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) is a number from 1 to 16 that is relative to an air filter’s efficiency. The higher the MERV, the more efficient the air filter is at removing particles.
At the lower end of the efficiency spectrum, a fiberglass panel filter may have a MERV of 2 or 3. At the higher end, a MERV 14 filter is typically the filter of choice for hospital care units to prevent the transfer of bacteria and infectious diseases. That’s because high end MERV filters can remove even extremely small contaminants (particles as small as 1/300 the diameter of a human hair).
Too much humidity is a bad thing, right? After all, it creates and promotes an environment where bacteria, mold, various fungi and dust mites not only grow, but flourish!
On the other hand, dry air causes its own fair share of problems. In fact, excessively dry indoor air can make you more vulnerable to harmful viruses and respiratory ailments.
So what’s the answer? A whole-house, combined humidification and dehumidification system where you can control and maintain the proper levels of relative humidity and promote an atmosphere of cleaner indoor air.
