Getting back to the basics is a good place to start in indoor air pollution control. The ducts in your home are the most active compents of your indoor air envelope. The ducting in your heating and cooling system is a primary contributor to poor indoor air quality. Loose and leaky ducting, connections and sheet metal joints can add dirt, dust, debris, rodent droppings, insulation and pollens to your indoor air. Most studies have shown that the ducting in a home heating and air conditioning system wastes about 35% of every lost btu through leakage. If you haven’t checked the ducts, you haven’t checked indoor air quality. If it’s in your ducts, it’s in your lungs. Here at Empire Heating and Air Conditioning we have the equipment, duct testing equipment and thermal imaging equipment, to capture and put under control those areas of ducting that are causing your indoor air challenges. All you have to do is give us a call.
Noise is an irritant that can lead to mental confusion and physical anguish. A furnace or air handling system that makes too much noise or an air conditioner that makes too much noise will cause a homeowner to shut them off only to use them under the most dire circumstances. This leads directly to poor indoor air quality as a home purification system or air filtration system that isn’t on and running isn’t cleaning the air. An ideal indoor air cleaning system should run 24 hours a day, using only about 40 watts of electricity, and should be virtually silent. We install these types of system everyday here at Empire and we’ve got one that work perfectly just for you. A phone call is your first step to indoor comfort perfection
Indoor air pollution includes biological agents such as molds, dust mites, dust mite fecal matter, pollens, animal dander, dead human skin and more. Mold and dust mites flourish when humidity increases and this irritates asthma and allergy conditions. This can lead to eye irritation, headaches, fatigue, cough and lung diseases.
Keeping the indoor humidity at about 35% is ideal comfort and cleanliness for most people. Higher humidity causes mold and mildew growth as well as providing a Garden of Eden for dust mites. Lower humidity causes dry and itchy skin that flakes off into the air currents in your home. We provide humidity control in the summer with a properly sized air conditioning system and properly programmed comfort controls. Humidity control in the fall and winter is by adding moisture vapor to the air by a humidifier placed in the ducting of your forced air heating system. There are several types of humidifiers that are currently available. Give us a call and we can match one up to your indoor comfort needs.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that escape into the air as gases from paints, plastics, cleaning products, pesticides, hair care products and building materials. Formaldehyde gas emitted by furniture, woods and insulation can irritate eyes and the respiratory tract. Carbon Monoxide, a product of burning, can kill in high concentrations and in lower concentration can cause flu like symptoms.
Normally overlooked by air conditioning and heating companies the lights in your home can have detrimental effect on your health or a positive effect on your health. The proper color lighting, 5600K is very close to sunlight, and can literally put you in a better mood. Candles add particulate pollution to the air you breathe. Dingy hallways and improperly illuminated kitchens can help lead to depression aggravating other symptoms of poor indoor air. Call out one of our electricians here at Empire and start lighting your way to healthier indoor environment.
A single cubic foot of air can suspend more than 400 million particles of smoke, dust and pollen. Dust particles can carry pesticides, products of combustion and heavy metals – some of which are cancer risks. Visible dust – and the motes floating in a sunbeam – is lint, broken fibers from carpets or clothing or tiny pieces of hair and small flakes of dead human skin
The temperature of your home impacts you air quality. When it’s cold outside you stay inside and keep the home locked up. When it starts to warm up outside, you open the doors and windows to let fresh air inside. That fresh air is full of pollens, dust and debris. A properly sized and filtered heating and air conditioning system will allow you to bring in fresh air and keep your indoor air clean. Heat recovery ventilators tied into the heating and air conditioning system can add and filter outdoor air to keep your home fresh and clean. Give us a call and we will sit down and go over all the aspects of your home comfort system and we will let you know where the challenges are and what the corrections should be.
All you have to do is give us a call. It's a free estimate. It's a choice. It's a lifestyle. It's your comfort. Don't you deserve to enjoy your home?
