You invest in premium HVAC equipment to keep the temperature of your home’s indoor air at an optimal level. But that air may also be the home to microscopic indoor air pollutants that can adversely affect the health and comfort of you and your family.
Indoor air pollution is brought upon by the accumulation of dust, dirt, mold and even pests in your home’s HVAC ductwork and circulated air. When you start up your HVAC system, those accumulated particles become dispersed into the air you and your family breathe. Breathing in these pollutants can exacerbate allergies, cause respiratory irritation and even lead to serious infections, especially in the young and elderly. F.C. Haab can purify your home’s indoor air quality with a selection of state-of-the-art equipment such as humidifiers, air filters and more.
Humidity levels can have a significant impact on your home’s comfort. Too much humidity can stimulate the growth of mold and mildew, while dry air can cause skin and respiratory irritation, as well as warping in your wooden furniture and moldings. Insufficiently humidified air is a common problem during the winter, when the air is generally drier due to weather and heavy use of your heating system. If you are experiencing uncomfortable humidity levels in your home, contact F.C. Haab and we’ll install the humidification system that’s right for your home.
Air filtration systems present an effective solution for ridding indoor air of harmful contaminants. F.C. Haab offers many different kinds of air filtration systems, including:
Electro-Static air filters: Electro-static air filters rely on air stream and alternate layers of washable materials to create a static charge that helps particles to stick to the filter. These filters are highly affordable but can reduce the air flow significantly from central air conditioning systems.
Media filters: Media filters feature disposable 4”-to-5” pleats to catch spores and bacteria before they exit your home’s central air ductwork. Over time, the filters become dirty from use and must be replaced with fresh filters.
Electronic filters: Electronic filters are highly thorough and effective, removing the smallest of particles, including airborne allergens such as cracked pollen. Many electronic filters are Wi-Fi compatible and can be controlled via smartphone or tablet for maximum energy efficiency.
UV purification systems: UV light is deadly to mold, bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. A UV purification system purges circulated air as it passes through the HVAC system. UV filters are especially helpful in households where family members have respiratory allergies or asthma.
