Filters and Purifiers Can Help Your Home

dusty-surfaceHave you ever walked down the street and found yourself hit by a heavy wind full of leaves, dirt, and other debris? If you have, you know how unpleasant it can be to be enveloped in dirty air. While this is usually just a problem with the outdoor environment, there is also a chance that your home’s indoor environment can also create a problem that is similar to this. This means that you have poor indoor air quality.

While keeping your doors and windows closed against the invasion of any outdoor contaminants, this won’t do much to get rid of the particles that are in your home already. Thankfully, our team can help you out. With our help and the systems and solutions we provide, you can get a boost to your indoor air quality that improves your home comfort.

Factors That Impact Your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

We want to start here because it is fairly common that people throughout New York don’t realize that certain factors can mess with the air that they breathe in the home. Airborne contaminants that include dust, dirt, pollen, fur, bacteria, and even scent particles, can all leave an impact on your home’s air. As you have likely guessed, too much of these types of debris will drive your IAQ down.

Solutions to Improve Your IAQ

Let’s say you’ve noticed that you have too much dust in the home or your allergies are out of control while you are home. If these issues sound familiar, it is likely that you need help improving your IAQ. Thankfully, we have some solutions that can address these problems and give you a home with clean, comfortable air again.

Solution #1: An Air Filtration System

“Wait, doesn’t my HVAC system come with a filter?” Yes, it does, but that filter doesn’t work to improve your IAQ (though it doesn’t hurt it either). An air filtration system that is built to help your IAQ is going to be installed in your ductwork. Here, this system will filter airborne contaminants out of the air flowing through your ductwork and into your home. This ensures your home will enjoy cleaned and comfortable air.

Solution #2: An Air Purification System

Your indoor air quality will also benefit from the use of a whole-home air purifier in Staten Island, NY. Air purifiers will use electricity or UV light to clean the air that is in your home. Also placed in your ductwork, purifiers will either charge airborne particles to magnetize them and allow them to be collected on a metal plate or will use UV light to break down particles so that they are no more harmful than dust motes. This allows purifiers to offer the bonus perk of tackling issues like viruses, bacteria, and mold spores.

Our professional technicians can provide you with the systems and solutions you need to improve your IAQ.
