5 Solutions for Poor Indoor Air Quality
 
Air Cleaners- The basic filter in your heating and cooling system is designed to protect your equipment and not you or your family. Air cleaners, however, are up to 40 times more efficient than basic filters at removing pollen, bacteria, viruses, dust, dander and spores from your home.

Duct Cleaning- Having the ductwork in your home professionally cleaned is a great way to improve your indoor air quality.  A duct cleaning ensures that your system does not circulate dust particles, bacteria, allergens and odors back into your home. You can even have your ductwork deodorized for more efficient odor control.

Whole-House dehumidifiers- Whole-house dehumidification systems can increase your indoor air comfort as they manage the moisture in your home’s air.  Along with greater comfort, a whole-house dehumidifier can reduce the opportunity for mold and mildew to grow.

UV Germicidal Lights- UV Germicidal lights kill bacteria and mold at the source, your system’s indoor coil, and prevent you from circulating it in your air. Installing a light in your system will work to improve the quality of your air while removing any musty and stale odors from your home.

Zoning- Zoning is an often-overlooked option for improving indoor air quality.  Zoning will afford you the chance to adjust the levels of heating and cooling or humidity of different rooms in your home. If you’ve ever wanted to be a micro-master of your domain, zoning is a good option for you.
