- Air Filters
Most heating and cooling systems still use a basic air filters. These filters were originally designed to protect the equipment and not the people served by the equipment. The average air filter is only capable of removing 3-5% of the particles that pass through it. Today, however, there are several types of permanent air filters available in various efficiencies that can help you filter the air in your home. If you suffer from allergies, asthma, hay fever or other breathing difficulties, there is an air filter that can help you. We can even provide you with the same type of air filter used in hospital operating rooms. We offer direct shipping to your home for most filter types. The filter type we recommend is MicroPower Guard electronic filters. Please see why we chose this type below:
Professional installation required. This electronic 1" Polarized Media Air Cleaner has a multiple-pass efficiency of 97% at .3 microns. It will remove 40% of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and odors. Easy to maintain by changing the replaceable media within the metal frame four times per year. Excellent control of larger and submicronic particles and allergens. Because it is electro-statically charged, it increases in efficiency as it loads. Like your television set, it attracts the smallest particles because it is electrically charged. Excellent air flow because of its long strain fiber and porous carbon media. Included with each air cleaner is a 24-volt power supply with very low consumption. Used extensively in commercial air cleaning applications such as hospitals, labs, nursing homes, casinos, bars, river boats, dentist offices and office buildings. The MicroPower Guard Air Cleaner is a proven commercial technology brought to the residential market.
- UV Lights
Residential ultraviolet units have been independently tested and proved to be effective in the constantly moving air environments of heating and cooling systems, killing mold and bacteria quickly and effectively.
- Duct Cleaning
Allergens, bacteria, dirt, dust, bugs, mites, mold & more are living in your air ducts. This can cause health problems, lack of air flow & major problems for allergy sufferers. Experts recommend having your air ducts cleaned every 5-8 years. Homeowners with children, pets, respiratory issues or a compromised immune system, may want to consider having it done more often. No chemicals are used in this process & it usually only takes a couple hours. To further help, we also offer vent sealing, Envirocon (EPA regulated anti-microbial treatment), Aeroseal duct sealing for air leaks & camera inspections for air blockage & restrictions.
With the proper level of humidity in your home, you will feel more comfortable and breathe easier. You can eliminate that dry eye, nose and throat feeling you have when you wake up in the morning. Humidity also reduces or eliminates static electricity. It protects the investment in your home and your furniture because proper humidity prevents wood from cracking and peeling.
In order to make a room comfortable in hot & humid weather, an air conditioner must lower the indoor humidity level & the air temperature. If an air conditioner fails to lower the humidity adequately, the air will be cool, but will feel uncomfortably damp.
- Dryer Vent Cleaning
According to usfa.fema.gov, 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them. Dirty dryer vents can also cause excess energy consumption, additional drying time & increased wear and tear on your dryer. Experts recommend having your dryer vent professionally cleaned annually.
