Many Williamsport, MD, area homeowners are surprised to learn that the air in their homes is more polluted than the outdoor air. Indoor air pollution comes from many sources. Here are five of the top indoor air quality products that could make your home’s air cleaner and healthier.
Indoor humidity levels higher than 50 percent contribute to mold growth. Mold spores are one of the top indoor air pollutants. In many people, the mold spores trigger allergy and asthma attacks. A whole-house dehumidifier works with your heating and cooling system to maintain consistent humidity levels that are low enough to discourage mold growth. We install ClimaDry whole-house dehumidifiers by ClimateMaster and Trane Envirowise whole-home dehumidifiers.
Pollen, dust, pet dander, bacteria and viruses also affect your indoor air quality. Air cleaners use filters, ozone generation or UV-C waves to inactivate these allergens and germs. We are proud to offer installation of different air cleaners, including the Trane CleanEffects Air Cleaner, which removes 99.98 percent of particles, and the ClimateMaster EarthPure Air Cleaner, which removes particles as small as 3 microns in size. The Environmental Protection Agency also suggests using a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. A HEPA filter removes particles as small as 0.3 microns in size. We can replace your air filter during a tune-up visit.
Another way to improve indoor air quality is with an upgraded ventilation system. We install products by Trane, ClimateMaster and Mitsubishi Electric and service all makes and models of ventilation systems. A whole-house fan brings in fresh outdoor air, reducing the indoor pollution level in your home. An attic fan is also a wise choice for increasing airflow in your home.
