Breathe Easier With an Indoor Air Quality System
Should you scrub, purify, or filter your way to clean indoor air?
Would your Pennsylvania or New Jersey home benefit from more ventilation, increased humidity, or less humidity?
Can an ultraviolet (UV) light zap away bacteria and viruses circulating through your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system?
There are myriad ways to improve your indoor air quality (IAQ). If you aren’t sure which is best for your home, All Seasons Comfort Control can steer you in the right direction.
For the past 20 years, our family-owned business has helped folks here in the Bucks County area achieve the utmost comfort in their homes. We repair, replace, install, and maintain HVAC systems, indoor air quality (IAQ) accessories, gas fireplaces, and plumbing.
Is My Indoor Air Polluted?
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often two to five times higher than typical outdoor levels.
Indoor air pollution can wreak all sorts of havoc on your health. Allergens, such as dust mites and pollen, can trigger asthma attacks. Mold spores can cause shortness of breath, wheezing, cough, and respiratory problems.
Short-term exposure to volatile organic compounds VOCs may result in headaches, nausea, dizziness, and asthma symptoms. Chronic exposure may lead to kidney and liver damage.
Removing the source of pollution inside your home helps to keep the air clean. Cleaning your house by dusting and vacuuming can reduce dust mites, dirt, and pet dander.
You can inhibit mold growth in damp areas, such as a bathroom, by increasing ventilation. Always try to buy household products that don’t contain VOCs.
Take an Additional Step
Anything you can do to mitigate the causes of poor indoor air quality in your Bucks County area home is a plus for your health. All Seasons Comfort Control can help you take air cleaning, humidity control, and ventilation to the next level with an indoor air quality improvement strategy designed for your unique needs.
We offer products that work in conjunction with your HVAC system to remove harmful contaminants. Here is a brief look at the variety of indoor air quality accessories available:
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
These whole-house devices control humidity throughout your home. A dehumidifier removes excess moisture, and a humidifier adds moisture. Too much humidity provides the perfect environment for mold growth and insects. Too little humidity dries out wood furniture, your skin, and it increases static electricity.
Energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) and heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) bring fresh air into your home. The outside air is filtered and heated or cooled before it enters your home. ERVs also help control humidity.
Electronic Air Cleaners
This equipment sits near the return air duct in your HVAC system. Air goes through mesh metal pre-filters and then through the device’s electronic cells and over ionizing wires. Any remaining particles in the air are charged electrically and drawn to collector plates that have an opposite charge.
These devices use high-efficiency filters to trap particles. Carrier’s Infinity® Air Purifier captures and “kills” particles, germs, and viruses in a three-stage process. The purifier creates ions that attach to the contaminants. The ionized particles are trapped in a high-efficiency filter and then zapped in an electric field.
Dirty air passes through the device, where the contaminants turn into oxidizers. Air containing the oxidizers travels out of your ductwork and into your home environment. The oxidizers disperse, destroying airborne and surface bacteria and viruses in their path.
Ultraviolet (UV) Light
All Seasons Comfort Control offers germicidal ultraviolet lights from Carrier that kill bacteria and mold on and around the coil and drain pan inside your HVAC system. It stops microbes from becoming airborne.
