Indoor Air Quality

Air cleaners are enhanced filtration systems that can be installed in your central heating and cooling system to remove greater quantities of dirt, dust and pollutants from the air circulating throughout your home. Some air cleaners are so efficient that they even remove gases, smoke, viruses and influenza.
Passive Media Air Cleaners – Passive media filters are enhanced filter surface area cleaners that remove small particles of dust, dirt and pollutants down to .3 microns in size and need to have a disposable filter cartridge replaced once every 12 months. These filters do an excellent job of removing excess dust and dirt and in keeping your air conditioner, coil and equipment clean for many years.
Electronic Air Cleaners – (or electrostatic precipitators) use a high voltage electrical field to charge the particles of dirt and dust, then collect the dirt and dust on an oppositely-charged metal collector cell or plate.While this air cleaner needs no replacement filter, it has to be washed and cleaned 3 to 4 times a year to remain effective.
HEPA and HEPA – type filters remove microscopic particles of dust and dirt down to .1 micron in size and can also stop smoke and viruses along with gases.HEPA is an abbreviation for High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance and is used to describe filters that are 99.7% effective in the removal of dirt and dust at .1 micron in size.
Bypass humidifiers use the heat of the furnace to evaporate water into moisture and they use the pressure differential of the supply and return to pull the moisture into your heating and cooling system and to all your conditioned rooms.
This type of humidifier has no pan of standing water, but rather when humidity is needed a water valve opens up and water isHumidifiers sent down a ceramic coated evaporative pad that dries out when the heat turns off.
This feature keeps mold and bacteria from growing in a pan of standing water.
The bypass humidifier is controlled by a humidistat that senses how dry your home is and automatically turns the device on when needed.
Steam generators contain a pan of water with an immersed heating element that boils the water and produces steam when humidity is needed.Humidifiers
The steam is injected into the ductwork of your HVAC system and the furnace blower distributes the moisture to all the conditioned rooms in your home.
The steam humidifier system has a cleaning mode that flushes out the standing water in the pan to stop mold growth. This same systems empties and dries the humidifier system in the summer to keep it clean and bacteria free when it is not in use.
The most popular of this types of steam humidifiers are manufactured by Honeywell and Aprilaire. They are also controlled by a humidistat, just like the bypass type.
Dehumidification systems can be integrated into heating and cooling systems through the use of special humidity sensing thermostats and variable speed furnaces.
Often, there is a need for a greater level of dehumidification in the winter (i.e. in moisture ridden basements) when the integrated system will not be running or when the moisture levels are very extreme, such a in the summer.
There are a number of large capacity dehumidification systems that can be added to your central heating and cooling units or installed freestanding with its own duct work.
These systems are controlled by a humidistat that senses high moisture levels. The dehumidification systems operate all year and can remove moisture even in the dry winter months if needed.
Excess humidity is a breeding ground for allergy triggers like mold, mildew and dust mites
