HVAC and Your Health
Keep harmful contaminants out of your air
Do you have allergies? Asthma? Have you ever had dry skin or a respiratory infection? If you or a loved one could answer "yes" to any of these questions, you may have been affected by less than ideal home air quality.
Mold spores, pollen, dust and dirt can make indoor air much more unhealthy than the air you breathe outside—making it important to maintain clean, fresh air in your home, as part of a healthy lifestyle.
You can improve the air quality in your home by purchasing air quality accessories. Here are a few of your options:
Products that clean, purify and filter your air:
Pollen, animal dander, smoke, bacteria and other tiny air contaminants can be found in our homes. However, you can remove these pollutants and help to lessen the occurrence of allergy and asthma attacks with air cleaners, air purifiers and media filters.
Products that moisten the air and make dry skin disappear
Dry air in your home is usually a result of outside weather which occurs at different times of the year, depending on the climate where you live. When this happens, you may experience static electricity, dry skin, lung infections and other respiratory issues. These effects can be lessened with the help of a humidifier, which adds the appropriate amount of moisture back into the air.
Ventilators: Fresh air in, bad air out
If you have a central heating and cooling system, it is likely that increased levels of viruses, bacteria, pollen, smoke and odor can be found in your house. This is due to the air circulating in your home becoming stale over time. A ventilator can help bring in fresh air. Some energy recovery models can even help lower your energy costs at the same time.
Zap mold where it grows in your heating and cooling system
The evaporator coil in your heating and cooling system is an important part of making your home comfortable. Unfortunately, it is also a comfortable home for things that grow in a warm, damp climate, like mold. Adding a UV lamp in the evaporator coil will kill the mold, creating a healthier home for your family.
