Indoor Air Quality
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures. Controlling and understanding the common indoor pollutants can help reduce your risk of health concerns.
There are many indoor pollution sources that can release gases or particles into the air, these are the primary cause of indoor air quality issues. Poor indoor ventilation can increase pollutant levels because there is not enough outdoor air to minimize or lower the emissions from those indoor sources. Fresh outdoor air is needed to carry indoor air pollutants out of the home or structure. Some of those pollution sources are:
- Fuel combustion appliances
- Excessive moisture
- Tobacco products
- Building materials
- Household cleaning and maintenance
- Outdoor sources
- Outdoor air pollution

Air Purifiers are the best defense when your doors and windows invite in particle allergens. By trapping pollen, bacteria, viruses, fine dust and hair and dander from your pets, they are then deactivated, or "killed" using patented, state-of-the-art technology.
Respicaire Ion Plasma System is used as a natural method for controlling airborne contaminants. This device features active ion plasma, that can make a particle cluster and increases the size, making air filtration more efficient.
MoldeMiser MAX is a duct mounted installation that uses UVC Ultra Violet light to penetrate and kill molds, mildew, virus, bacteria and other exposed microbial pathogens.
ERV or Energy Recovery Ventilators bring fresh air into your home and get rid of the stale air year round. They are best used in climates where the summer is hot and humid.
UV Lights are designed to kill the mold and bacteria that can grow on and around your indoor coil. They also minimize the microbial build-up on the coil and drain pan and prevent it from becoming airborne.
Humidifiers make your home feel more comfortable by "moisturizing" dry, heated and winter air; alleviating itchy skin, a dry nose and static shocks. A comfortably humidified home can help save energy as well as saving you money on your heating cost.
Dehumidifiers help remove moisture from the indoor air. This allows you to feel more comfortable without over cooling, meaning you can turn up the thermostat a few degrees, saving you on energy costs.
