Breathe in, Breathe out…And Feel Better Doing It!
You can have perfect indoor temperatures all day and night, and all year long, but still feel pretty lousy in your own skin.
If that’s the case, then chances are you have one or more indoor air quality problems. First, some facts about home indoor air quality:
- According to the EPA, indoor air is twice as polluted outdoor air.
- Common indoor air pollutants include dust, pollen brought in on shoes or through windows, chemical byproducts, smoke byproducts, mold and mildew, and many more
- Poor indoor air quality can cause or worsen allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments
- The EPA has ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers.
As you can see, indoor air quality problems are not the kind to be ignored, but dealt with head on by the specialists here at Service Pros.
Here are just a few of the indoor air quality solutions we provide:
Electrostatic Air Cleaner. This is a step above your standard furnace or central AC disposable filter, and about 10 times more effective at trapping and removing dust and other pollutants from the air. They can be washed and cleaned, and never need to be replaced.
Electronic Air Cleaners. This is a more potent alternative to electrostatic air cleaners. Mounted to your furnace or central AC system, an electronic air cleaner uses a multi-step process that filters all the air passing through your air ducts. They are extremely effective at removing airborne contaminants as small as 0.01 micron (at that size, it would take 100,000 particles to cover the head of a pin). An electronic air cleaner also can rid your home of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that stem from carpets, glues, paints, solvents, and personal care products.
Whole-House Humidifier. Once again, here’s a system that’s mounted to your furnace and works with it to provide a combination of warm, but not overly dry air. In fact, you can change the relative humidity setting to whatever level you deem most comfortable. With added moisture in the air during the winter, you’ll feel just as warm at lower temperature settings, and that will save you money on utility costs. You’ll also be less prone to static electricity, dry skin, sneezing, watery eyes, and more.
Whole-House Dehumidifier. Working in conjunction with your central AC systems, a whole-house dehumidifier removes excess levels of humidity during the cooling season. In addition to helping reduce your energy costs, your dehumidifier will help prevent mold and mildew from forming and other allergens that thrive in damp environments.
