Why Indoor Air Quality Services Are Necessary
The drop in indoor air quality in the U.S. is a result of improved energy efficiency on homes and commercial buildings. To reduce the stress on air conditioners and heaters, buildings have strong insulation and other heat seals on them that keeps heat trapped during cold weather and keeps heat our during hot weather. But only small amounts of fresh air can get into buildings because of this heavy seal, and so the air inside continues to circulate, picking up more and more dust and contamination. Opening windows and doors to let in outdoor air isn’t a good solution, since it will cause a leap in heating and cooling bills—especially cooling bills in a place as hot as Las Vegas.
The best way to deal with the dilemma of "low indoor air quality vs. energy efficiency" is to call for professionals to find ways to clean out the air in your home using air filters, air purifiers, and ducts services.
Your Choices for Air Quality Systems
There is no universal way to provide a home with improved indoor air quality. This is because different types of contaminants can affect a home, and come from different sources. To find out what sort of air quality system or service your home requires, you must consult with specialists. They can find out what is wrong with the air then come up with the approach or installation that will eliminate the problem. Below are a number of the air quality services we provide that we suggest doing for your home:
One of the basic ways to improve indoor air quality is to install special filters into the HVAC system. Forced–air heaters and air conditioners come with an air filter, but this filter is designed to prevent damage to the interior of the cabinet, not to clean out particles from the air. Special air filtration systems, properly matched so it does not restrict airflow from the heater and air conditioner, will remove dust, pollen, dander, lint, dust mites, and many other pollutants from the air circulating through a home.
Air purifiers are different from mechanical air filters in that instead of filtering the air, they ionize it using electricity. The ionization process allows the purifier to draw extremely small contaminating particles out of the air and trap them. Air purifiers work well at counteracting smoke, chemicals, gas and odor molecules, and other minute particles that might slip through a mechanical filter.
If your home suffers from trouble with molds, viruses, and bacteria, the solution may be a UV air purifier. These devices use ultraviolet lights inside the HVAC system to kill off contaminating cells without putting any harmful chemicals into the air.
One way that excess dust and other pollutants can enter your home’s air is through leaks in the air ducts. Such leaks will also have a negative impact on your HVAC system’s effectiveness and may even shorten its service life. Call on our ductwork experts to seal up the interfering leaks in your ventilation system.
If you think that your ductwork in general is suffering from air leaks, call on our team to provide thorough duct testing. This will determine the integrity of your ducts and locate the leaks that need sealing and repair. Even if your ducts seem like they are in decent shape, it is a good idea to schedule duct testing every few years to catch problems with efficiency before they can worsen.
