What’s in your air?
We care about the air quality of your home or business. Air quality is connected to your health. Airborne contaminants, pollutants can have an adverse affect your health & well-being ultimately making you very sick.
We can help control the indoor air environment in your house by upgrading your existing furnace into a decontamination chamber by adding a few air purification products and make a few quick and easy modifications to your home air duct system. These modifications can ensure you will have the Best Indoor Air Quality possible.
Air treatment technologies & services you may consider to improve the air quality in your house are:
- Electronic Air Purification
- Ultraviolet Light Purification
- Residential HEPA Air Filtration
- Carbon Monoxide Monitoring
- Video inspection & Air Duct Cleaning
- Indoor Air Humidification
- Indoor Air De-Humidification
98% of all indoor air particles are less than one micron in size
A micron is a metric measurement used to analyze very small particles. One micron is equal to 1/25,400 of an inch or one millionth of a meter. Why is this important? By knowing the size of the particles that we are trying to capture, we can determine which products offer the best solution to capturing those tiny unwanted airborne particles. The chart on the right provides a visual representation of the spectrum of common air contaminants and their measured sizes in microns.
When discussing indoor air quality solutions it is important to determine how effective a product is at capturing/controlling contaminants 2.5 microns or less in size. Any particles less than 2.5 microns are classified as a Respirable Suspended Particle (RSP) and the health hazards with these small particles is great. RSP’s are particles that are small enough to evade mucosal capture by the protective cilia and mucosa of the human upper respiratory system and invade the deeper reaches of the lungs with serious health consequences. In fact, any particles of five microns or less are considered a definite inhalation hazard because of the inability of the human body to filter effectively these particles from the lungs.
Allergenic particles, infectious agents and toxic gases can cause allergic reactions, headaches, sickness and many other illnesses. Since 98% of airborne contaminants are less than one (1) micron in size, knowing the effectiveness of any product at controlling sub-micron particles is very important when making a decision on an air purification system for your home.
