Signs You Need an Indoor Air Quality Upgrade

Indoor air quality issues can affect your health. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air in your home can be up to five times as polluted as outdoor air. Here are some signs that you may need to take steps to improve the quality of your indoor air:

  • Increased symptoms of asthma, such as difficulty breathing
  • Unpleasant odors and vapors caused by volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Concerns of airborne diseases
  • Discomfort at night
  • Signs of allergies while inside your home

You don’t need to wait for one of these signs to reach out. Ask a trusted HVAC technician to inspect your building and see which air purification system may be best for your situation. Whether it’s a humidifier, air scrubber or combination of technologies, it’s important to find a solution that keeps you and your loved ones safe.

How Air Scrubbers Work

One option is to work with a qualified HVAC team to install air scrubbers in your home. These state-of-the-art components have been tested and certified by the FDA to eliminate more than 99.999% of the following airborne contaminants:

  • Fungi
  • Mold
  • Germs
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses

These devices use high-intensity UVC light waves to destroy contaminants. Many units can cover 3,000 square feet or more and can be combined with multiple air scrubbers to cover a larger home or commercial property. Air scrubbers can be used in both commercial and residential applications. The size of the system may vary, but the technology remains the same. Be sure to work with a professional technician to correctly size and install your new air purification system.

Benefits of Air Purifiers

An air and surface purifier is similar to an air scrubber. Here are a few common types of air purification systems an HVAC team can install in your home or professional building:

  • Activated charcoal
  • HEPA filtration
  • Ultraviolet light
  • Ozone generator
  • Electrostatic precipitator

The benefits of an air purifier range from improved sleep and reduced airborne contaminants to reduced radon levels and neutralized odors. These systems vary in size, scope and price, so discuss your air purification goals with our team at Day & Night Mechanical Solutions to determine the best option for your situation.

How HEPA Filters Can Improve Your Air Quality

You can reduce indoor air contaminants with a newly installed air scrubber or purifier, but you can also swap out your standard HVAC system filter with a HEPA filter. Ask our team about your current heating and air system and how a HEPA filter can help.

You can also pair a new filter with a full ductwork cleaning and maintenance service. By removing dust trapped in your ducts and installing a state-of-the-art filter in your blower, you’ll greatly reduce the amount of dust and debris blown around when your heater or air conditioner turns on.

Advantages of Humidifiers

All of these systems reduce the levels of airborne contaminants, but low levels of moisture can also affect your indoor air quality. Ask our team if an air humidifier may be right for you. Because of the dry winters in Denver and the surrounding area, you should consider a humidifier to keep the moisture level of your building at 35 percent. This will protect your furniture, hardwood floors, reduce the risk of dry skin, and save you money on your energy bills.
