Many homeowners don’t think about the quality of air inside their home. Their homes are clean, neat and orderly, so why the concern? Indoor air pollution has many forms that can affect the cleanest of homes. In fact, sometimes the cleaner your home the worse the pollution.
Many household products release toxic VOCs into the air. Things such as beds, carpets, paints, wood finishing products and household cleaners are on the list. Do you use air fresheners like Febreze? Toxic. When your home is shut tightly during a hot Houston summer or cold winter season, VOCs really have nowhere to go.
In addition to VOCs, allergens, mold spores, bacteria and viruses can all make their way into the air inside your home. As your HVAC system runs, it simply distributes them to every room. So what should you do? Talk to JMT Mechanical about an indoor air quality solution that will refresh, protect and purify your indoor air.
Whole house air cleaners replace the thin filters that come with a furnace or air handler. These advanced air cleaners can capture microscopic particles including allergens, VOCs, bacteria and more!
Ultraviolet air purifiers kill airborne and surface mold and bacteria. They are effective mounted in ducting near your HVAC system, as well as the indoor coil to kill the mold that loves to grow during the cooling season.
Proper humidity does a lot for your indoor comfort. Dry air in the winter feels cold and is uncomfortable. Humid air in the summer feels muggy and hot. Both scenarios cost you money because you end up running the heating and air more. Whole house humidification control will transform your comfort and lower utility bills.
Opening the windows in your home to let in the fresh breeze would be nice to do year round right? But that’s simply not practical with weather extremes. However, a ventilator can exchange fresh air from outside for stale indoor air, and transfer heat energy during the process!
