Why Your Home May Suffer from Poor Indoor Air Quality
People tend to think of air pollution as something that occurs outside. But the truth is that often the air inside a building is three to four times worse than what is outside. Once of the reasons for this increase in indoor air contaminants is that the heavy insulation and heat sealing on buildings to help keep their HVAC systems efficiency ends up giving no way for indoor particles to escape. The concentration of pollutants builds up over the months, leading to poor quality. And there are legions of sources inside a home that can lower the air quality: paint, paint thinner, cleaning products, pesticides, smoke, fuel combustion, hobby products, etc.
Ways to Solve Air Quality Issues
What is the best way to approach all of these indoor air quality troubles? There are numerous devices and services that will help, each targeting specific types of issues. Installation of air purifiers and air filtration systems are among the most immediately helpful. Homes that have problems with moisture extremes (too dry or too humid) can benefit from a professional installing a whole–house humidifier and dehumidifier.

Air Duct Cleaning
An enormous amount of contaminants, such as pet dander, dust mites, carpet fibers, pollen, and old–fashioned dust will accumulate inside the ductwork of a home over the years. Arranging for regular duct cleaning from professionals (and it must be from professionals) will not only remove this reservoir of airborne pollution, it will also increase the HVAC system’s energy performance.
Air Filtration Systems
An effective way to stop many of the larger airborne irritants moving through your home (particles down to 0.3 microns in size) is with mechanical air filters. These filtration systems trap unwanted pollutants in the air passing through the ventilation system within a mesh of fibers. Let our experts find the right type of filters for your house.
Where filters stop pollutants in a fiber weave, air purifiers use electrically–powered processes to draw the pollutants down out of the air. An air purifier, properly installed and serviced, is extremely effective against tiny particles (down to 0.1 microns). If your home suffers from problems with gas and odor molecules, an air purifier might be the best solution.
You may not think it’s useful to have fans up in the attic—after all, you don’t spend much time there—but fans ventilating this space will help you around the year. During summer, attic ventilation removes a major heat sink that raises the temperature of the rest of the house. In winter, attic ventilation takes away moisture that can build up and damage the roof. Call us for more information.

Energy Recovery Ventilators
You can have fresh air enter your house without placing extra stress on your heater or air conditioner.

Fresh air reaches your home at the temperature you desire.
