Indoor Air Quality Monitoring and Testing
Because most airborne pollutants are invisible to the naked eye, IAQ problems frequently go unnoticed until people begin getting sick. That's why we encourage all homeowners to have their air quality tested. Our IAQ specialists can accurately detect and assess a broad range of pollutants, including particulates, microorganisms, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). We can also recommend indoor air quality monitors to track changes or intermittent contamination problems. Armed with this detailed data, we can:
- Evaluate any air quality issues and their potential risks
- Identify and mitigate likely sources of airborne pollutants
- Recommend appropriate solutions for you and your budget
Air Filtration and Active Air Purification
All HVAC systems incorporate air filters, but not all air filters are the same. Filters with higher MERV ratings catch more contaminants, but they can also restrict airflow and compromise performance. Airmech Heating and Air Conditioning technicians can help you find the ideal filter for your system, improving air quality without impeding comfort or efficiency.
However, while conventional air filters help cut down on particulates, achieving truly clean air often requires more proactive measures. Using special high-efficiency filters, whole-home air cleaners effectively trap the vast majority of airborne particles. Products like the Active Air Purification System go even further, combining multiple advanced technologies to actively track down and neutralize harmful pollutants.
Whole-Home Ventilation and Humidity Control
While filtration and purification systems are certainly powerful solutions, they aren't the only tools for resolving IAQ problems. Many air pollution issues are actually caused or exacerbated by inadequate ventilation. A continuous exchange of air between the indoor and outdoor environments is critical to flushing out odors and contaminants. That's precisely what a whole-house ventilator provides, keeping your home fresh without wasting energy.
Humidity control is another crucial variable that can't be overlooked. Too much humidity can foster organic growth and lead to higher concentrations of airborne particulates. Conversely, too little humidity can irritate the skin and respiratory tract and worsen asthma and allergy symptoms. Whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers automatically correct these imbalances, keeping your home squarely within the recommended range of 30% to 50% humidity.
