Improving Your Indoor Air Quality
One of the most often overlooked issues faced by homeowners is indoor air quality. Did you know that the air you breathe inside your home can be more polluted than the air outside your home? The good news is we can help you improve your indoor air quality through services such as installation and maintenance of air cleaners, purifiers, humidifiers and dehumidifiers, and UV germicidal lights. Your family members with any signs or symptoms of asthma and allergies will thank you!
In Northern Kentucky and in Cincinnati, indoor air quality issues can take many forms. The most common are not very dangerous – things like pet dander, pollen, and dust. However, even these common irritants, when built up to a high enough level, can trigger allergy and asthma attacks.
When these pollutants are allowed to exist in such high concentrations, other pollutants soon follow, including mold spores, bacteria, and viruses, which can be detrimental to your health.
Improve the Quality of Your Air & Lessen the Allergens Your Family is Being Exposed To
The first line of defense against poor indoor air quality is a filter. Your air handler already has a standard filter installed that removes many of the large particles, like dust and pollen. However, an upgraded filter will greatly increase the efficiency of that system. High–grade air cleaners and purifiers installed at your air handler can remove particles as small as 0.3 microns. Even a mid–grade filter is a major upgrade over the stock one that comes with your system.
Another major issue affecting many Northern Kentucky homes is humidity. Extreme high or low humidity can damage furniture, worsen existing illnesses and contribute to the growth of microbial contaminants like mold, dust mites and bacteria. A good humidity control system will provide a necessary defense against these problems.
Finally, you should consider installing a UV germicidal light to kill bacteria and viruses that circulate through your ductwork. A UV light system will kill them before they can reach your lungs and keep your air clear of any potentially illness inducing germs.
