indoor air quality

The quality of the air inside your home is a crucial component of your family’s comfort. Clean indoor air that’s free from harmful contaminants is important for making your home’s air more breathable for everyone. Many common allergens and irritants that create indoor breathability issues can be controlled by using IAQ solutions. If you are experiencing issues with any of the following contaminants in your home, we offer a selection of indoor air quality products that can help address the problem:

  • Pollen
  • Dust and dust mites
  • Animal dander
  • Smoke and other particulates
  • Bacteria, viruses & other microbes
  • Spores and other organisms
  • Chemicals from cleaners & cosmetics
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

All of the above airborne substances can compromise the breathability of your indoor air. Based on your specific situation, our IAQ experts can help you determine the best indoor air quality technology for clearing the air inside your home.

Air Cleaners & Filters

Today’s high-tech air cleaners and filters are carefully designed to remove the vast majority of the airborne particles and biological pollutants that pass through them. They are rated based on the size of the particles they capture and can be highly effective for removing these irritating substances from the air you breathe.

Air Purifiers & Sanitizers

Air purifiers and air sanitizers such as UV lamps capture and kill biological contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, spores and other microbes and living organisms. These technologies zap the contaminant, deactivating it, as well as removing it from the breathing zone. Some technologies are capable of deactivating the common cold and influenza virus, making them a valuable part of your wintertime illness-avoidance arsenal.

Air Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers

Humidifiers add scarce moisture to the air during the winter months when forced-air heating can lead to excessively dry indoor air. Dehumidifiers can be helpful in summer or in areas of your home that are excessively humid, such as bathrooms or finished basements. This technology can help prevent breathing issues and the buildup of air particles.

Heat Recovery & Energy Recovery Ventilators

The purpose of ventilators is to remove stale air from inside your home and replace it with fresh, conditioned air from outside. Two variations of this technology are available to address different needs. The heat-recovery variety is designed to humidify and warm the air it draws from outside before delivering it to your living space. It’s intended for wintertime use.

The energy-recovery type, on the other hand, dehumidifies and cools the air it draws from the outdoors before releasing it inside your home. This technology is designed for summertime use.
