Indoor Air Quality from Andy's Statewide
Indoor Air Quality in Orion, MI
Plenty of studies have been conducted on indoor air quality in the past couple of decades. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air in our homes, offices, schools and stores is anywhere from two to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. A significant percentage of respiratory illnesses are brought on by unclean indoor air due to pollen build-up, bacteria, viruses, dust, dust mites, mold, spores, pet dander, and other allergens.
For these reasons, improving the indoor air quality in your home should be an important component of designing your ideal HVAC system. Technological advances in indoor air quality have been extremely beneficial for people that have allergies or other respiratory ailments. Improvements in indoor air quality are also crucial for homes with children and indoor pets.
Air Duct Cleaning Services
As a responsible homeowner, you do everything you can to keep your home in good condition. But when’s the last time you thought about your ductwork? If it’s been a while, you’re not alone. In fact, air duct systems are commonly overlooked for years at a time. You might not think that air duct cleaning in your Detroit, Ann Arbor or Troy, MI home isn’t that much of an issue, but guess again.
Whole Home Air Cleaners
Fortunately, there’s a way to clear the air and reduce indoor pollution with a whole home air cleaner. But what exactly is a whole home air cleaner? Essentially, it’s a state-of-the-art filtering system that’s attached to your home’s heating and air conditioning system. The air that goes into your home first passes through this filter, removing harmful contaminants in the process. The result is a home with significantly reduced indoor pollution levels.
We can offer you our own brand of electronic air cleaner, built by Dynamic. We can also install and maintain the Honeywell and Trion whole home air cleaners. So call us today and let us help you clear the air.
Ultraviolet Air Cleaner
One way to do this is with an ultraviolet (UV) air cleaner. Long used to sterilize hospitals and research facilities, UV lighting technology is now available for the home as well.
Installed directly into your home’s ductwork, a UV air cleaner uses an ultraviolet lamp to kill microorganisms filtering in from your AC or heater. This means they are destroyed before they even get into your home’s ventilation system. And when used properly with a system of vents and air filters, an UV cleaner can practically eliminate germs from your ventilation system.
Whole Home Humidifiers
During the winter months, the air in your home is typically dryer than at any other time of the year. As a result, you and your family could develop dry noses, throats, lips and skin that may result in health issues. But you can combat the effects of dry winter air with a whole house humidifier. Installed directly onto your existing HVAC system, a furnace humidifier injects humidity in the form of water vapor into your home’s air and distributes it through your ducts and vents.
Unlike portable humidifiers, the whole house version monitors the relative humidity in your home and produces exactly the right levels of moisture. Another advantage is that the filter only needs replacement about once a year, versus the daily cleaning and disinfecting that portable units often require.
Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation
Fireplaces, heaters, hot water heaters, gas stoves and ovens, grills, and even the car in your garage can all create CO where you live. While nearly all appliances and systems in your home are designed to produce a minimal amount of carbon monoxide, if these systems malfunction, the result can be hazardous. And because you can’t see, smell or taste CO, it’s hard to detect without specialized equipment.
You can protect your family by having a carbon monoxide detector installed in Detroit. It’s one of those HVAC products you rarely think about. Working much like a smoke detector, a CO detector senses when an unsafe level of the gas is in the air and sounds an alarm. And also like a smoke alarm, you’d be wise to hard wire your detector into your home’s electrical wiring, have multiple units throughout your home, and test them all monthly.
