With the July heat mounting, you may find yourself spending more time inside. Groundbreaking advances in building science have lead to improvements in the energy efficiency of your central air conditioner; however, these advances have also lead to tight homes that trap unwanted contaminants in the living area. These contaminants cause poor indoor air quality (IAQ) and can lead to respiratory ailments. Detecting and correcting significant indoor air quality issues can be difficult. At Lee’s TemperaturePro, our team of professional technicians are trained and experienced in improving your indoor air quality through the use of air purifiers, ventilators, and air humidifiers.
Air purifiers play a critical role in making sure that your home is free of contaminants. The wrong filters trap harmful particles in the HVAC system, which leads to poor air quality. At Lee’s TemperaturePro, we recommend purifiers based on the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. Calculating size and the quality of contaminants trapped in the filter, air purifiers with a value of at least 7 are recommended by our HVAC contractors.
As devices designed to deliver the exact amount of fresh air required to keep the indoor environment healthy and safe, mechanical ventilators are important in ensuring a healthy IAQ. Mechanical ventilation helps to introduce fresh air into the home while pushing the stale air back outside.
When humidity levels in the home rise, the moisture that builds up can cause mold to grow in your home. As mold grows, the spores become an aggravator for allergies and asthma issues. Healthcare professionals recommend keeping indoor humidity between 40% and 50%. For homes whose humidity level exceeds 50%, our HVAC contractors recommend installing central dehumidifiers. Dehumidifiers work with your HVAC unit to ensure that the living area in your home stays comfortably at the right humidity level.
