Indoor Air Quality from ARS/Rescue Rooter Laurel
Indoor Air Quality in Laurel, MD
According to the EPA, your home’s indoor air quality can be quite bad—up to four to five times more polluted than the air outside. This is because contaminants such as viruses, mold spores, bacteria, and allergens can be floating in your air and multiplying at a very fast rate. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has been linked to more and more respiratory diseases and infections, especially in children and the elderly. At ARS/Rescue Rooter Laurel in Laurel, MD, we want to protect our clients from worrying about these concerns, so we offer the latest technology for improving the air in your home, along with our HVAC maintenance, repair, and installation services.
The air in your home can be two to five times more toxic than the air outside? Things such as mold, dust, viruses, bacteria and dust mites can circulate through your air every day through your HVAC system. In addition, harmful gases may also come from gas stoves, vehicle exhaust, paints, varnishes, cleaning products, and pesticides.
These contaminants can be extremely dangerous for individuals with allergy and asthma conditions, but air purifiers can remove a high percentage of the toxins from your air. These particles can also cause nose, eye and throat irritation in individuals that don’t have respiratory issues. ARS/Rescue Rooter specializes in the installation of whole house HEPA air purifiers, which use a HEPA air filter to capture a majority of these particles before being dispersed into your air. Our indoor air professionals are experienced in air quality evaluation and are prepared to help you determine and assess your family’s IAQ needs.
UV Germicidal Lamps
The air in our homes can be 4-5 times more polluted than the air outdoors. As a result, indoor air quality has been linked to multiple respiratory illnesses recently found in children and the elderly. With the various products that are available now, however, a whole-house approach to cleaning the air in our homes is an obtainable solution.
One of the more popular technologies is a UV germicidal lamp. This lamp destroys virtually any harmful microorganism, such as germs, viruses and bacteria, that passes through by breaking up its DNA structure. As a result, the microorganisms are destroyed. UV light disinfection has been used for several generations in sterile environments such as hospitals, but just recently, has become a method in which we can sterilize our homes as well.
You may not realize how much a home humidifier adds to your family’s overall comfort until you have one installed. Whole house humidifiers not only provide the right amount of moisture for your home and comfort, but they can also prevent such things as mold, viruses and bacteria from multiplying and being dispersed into your air. When you add a whole home humidifier to your HVAC system, you can experience the following benefits:
- Less skin irritation and brittle hair
- Less damage to wood floors, musical instruments, and furniture
- Increased energy efficiency – with the right moisture levels, cold air feels warmer at lower temperatures, so you won’t have to keep your thermostat as high
Whole House Dehumidifiers
If you have damp areas in your home such as the basement or kitchen, you may have mold and mildew problems. Mold and mildew produce tiny spores that reproduce and float through your air. Unfortunately for some individuals, even small amounts of these spores can cause serious health concerns.
High humidity levels can also create large populations of dust mites, which are the most common trigger of allergy and asthma symptoms. Hundreds of thousands of dust mites can live in your pillows, curtains, bedding and the air in your home. The more humid the air, the faster they multiply.
