Indoor Air Quality

With the push for energy efficient homes and construction, the need for indoor air quality products is more important than ever. The reason is because the more efficient your home is, the more airborne contaminants can become trapped inside. Things like volatile organic compounds from paints and household cleaners, to molds, bacteria, allergens...and more.

In addition to pollutants, indoor air can become stale when your house is shut tightly during a typical hot Brevard summer, or frigid winter season. Stale, dry and polluted air will affect the health of your home. The good news is that we offer indoor air quality solutions that will turn this around.

The important thing to remember about indoor air quality equipment is that it is not mutually exclusive. A UV lamp has a specific purpose, and it cannot be replaced with an electronic air cleaner. Read more to learn more, or call us at 828.883.4997 and we will be happy to assist you!

Electronic Air Cleaner

Electronic Air Cleaner

Typical furnace filters are not really able to do much more than catch large dust particles in the air. Things like mold spores, allergens, VOCs and other pollutants pass right through them. An electronic air cleaner uses a 3-stage process to trap and destroy air pollutants. Some can even trap and kill the flu virus! These also keep your HVAC system clean, which aids in better overall efficiency.
Brevard Whole House Humidifier

Whole House Humidifier

Humidification is an important part of not just indoor air quality, but heating and air conditioning as well. Why? Because a properly humidified house is more comfortable, and costs less. For example, during our dry winter months, you will spend more on heating your home without a humidifier, because dry air feels colder. Proper humidification is also helpful for maintaining skin and eye health.
ERV Ventilator

HRV & ERV Ventilators

Above we talked about air becoming stale during cold or hot months. A ventilator addresses this concern by exchanging stale indoor air with air from outside, without destroying your utility bills! A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) can transfer heat energy during the air exchange. An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) transfers heat energy and humidity. This applies to the cooling and heating seasons!
UV Lamp

UV Lamp

When your air conditioner turns on during a hot Brevard summer day, it pumps chilled refrigerant to the indoor coil. Warm air from the home is forced through the coil. As the air is cooled, water condensates on the coil. This dark, damp area is a prime breeding ground for mold. Mold spores can be released into your air and mold will affect cooling efficiency. A UV lamp kills mold on the indoor coil.
Dehumidifier

Whole House Dehumidifier

Proper humidity is important for more than just comfort. It affects home health and utility bills as well. Adding humidity to dry winter air is important, but in our humid Appalachian summer seasons, removing humidity can be just as important. A York® Affinity™ Series fan powered whole house dehumidifier can save you money because dry air feels cooler, thus decreasing the need to run your A/C!
Steam Humidifier

Steam Humidifier

A whole house steam humidifier can be more efficient, providing humidity when you need it. The York Steam Humidifier operates on a call for humidity. Controlling humidity is no longer dependent upon a call for heat from the thermostat. They are easy and economical to maintain canister/electrode technology. Simply replace the canister, usually on an annual basis.
As you can see, modern indoor comfort control encompasses much more than just the temperature in your home. Call us today at 828.883.4997 to learn more about how we can make your home a more comfortable and healthier place to live!
