Indoor Air Quality
Have you ever thought about the air quality in your home? Having a comfortable home goes beyond just the temperature settings. Tiny particles like mold, bacteria and moisture can cause serious respiratory problems, while pet dander, dust and pollen can be irritating. Health experts estimate that 35 million Americans suffer from upper respiratory tract symptoms triggered by these airborne allergens.
Fortunately, here at Dama Plumbing & Heating, Inc., we have a wide variety of products to combat these issues in your home so you can live a more comfortable life. These indoor air quality products help to improve air circulation and balance humidity levels in your home, while also eliminating germs and bacteria.
The first step in improving the air in your home would be to install a filter cabinet box on your furnace. Lennox makes three different filtration options that will enhance your home’s comfort and air quality. All of which are compatible with any HVAC system and do not require an additional power source. Having a bigger filter on your furnace can eliminate up to 99% of mold spores, pollen, dust and pet dander. It also removes up to 95% of fine particles that can be absorbed by the lungs, including infectious airborne bacteria and smoke.
Humidity is also important in your home. By controlling the humidity you can reduce respiratory infections and symptoms related to asthma and allergies. Having the right humidity level in your home will also preserve the natural beauty of wood floors, cabinets, furnishings and anything else in your home that is susceptible to warping or cracking due to dry air. Here at Dama Plumbing and Heating, Inc. we offer a selection of humidifiers and dehumidifiers made by Aprilaire that will fit with any HVAC system.
And lastly, we recommend installing a Honeywell UV light on your HVAC system. Ultraviolet light kills germs and bacteria throughout your house as well as eliminating unpleasant odors. Studies have proven that UV light systems are highly effective in reducing microorganisms as they pass through the ultraviolet rays, reducing these microorganisms means less transferred illnesses within your home and reduced sneezing, wheezing and other allergy symptoms.
