Why You Need Professional Indoor Air Quality Services
As mentioned above, there are a lot of common factors that decrease your indoor air quality. For example, millions upon millions of airborne contaminants are commonly found in a home’s air. Dust, pollen, dander, viruses, bacteria, and mold spores are frequently inhaled while you’re inside. Breathing in these contaminants over time tends to make allergy attacks, the flu, and other unpleasant conditions more common. You can even develop asthma if the air quality is poor enough.
Humidity is another issue that you need to watch out for in terms of indoor air quality. Humidity levels that are too high or too low can make your body more prone to infection, promote mold growth, or make it more difficult for you to cool off. These are all good reasons to make sure that you have good air quality system in place.
Chicago Indoor Air Quality Services
Elm Heating & Cooling, Inc. provides a wide range of indoor air quality systems and services, including:
Air Duct Cleaning:
Airborne contaminants tend to build up in ductwork, as it isn’t typically cleaned. Then, when a forced air system like a heater or air conditioner is turned on, a massive dose of contaminants is circulated around the house at once. Duct cleaning solves this problem by getting rid of the contaminants.
Air Filtration Systems:
An air filtration system used fiber mesh to strain contaminants out of the air that passes through it. The more closely woven the mesh is, the more contaminants it can catch. The filter needs to be cleaned every few months to get rid of the contaminants it’s already collected.
Air purifiers use a variety of different methods to remove airborne contaminants from the air. Some of these methods include ionization, ultraviolet light, and activated carbon. Talk to a professional about which air purifier would serve you best.
Duct leaks contribute to a massive loss of output for forced air systems. This makes your home more expensive to operate, and less comfortable. Duct insulation helps keep your climate control systems energy efficient, which benefits your home in a number of ways.
Duct Repair and Replacement:
Ducts can last quite a long time, but they can’t last forever. When your ducts are so worn out that they start to fall apart, you should take advantage of our duct repair and replacement services.
A big part of duct services is sealing ducts, which can’t be done until the leaks are located. In order to do that, duct testing has to be done. We offer a full range of duct testing services.
Humidifiers correct chronically low humidity in your home by releasing moisture into the air. This helps keep your home comfortable and prevents the negative effects of low humidity.
Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators:
Heat and energy recovery ventilators are devices that introduce fresh air into the home, without compromising the indoor climate like opening a window would.
