There is nothing more critical to creating a comfortable healthy living environment than good indoor air quality. A properly designed and installed HVAC system will not only keep your home at a desirable temperature, it will filter out pollutants and prevent the growth of illness-causing molds, while keeping your energy costs down.
With HVAC systems, bigger is not always better. A properly sized piece of equipment will work more efficiently and maintain a more even temperature throughout your house. It’s just as important to select the proper filter for your system to product cleaner, purer air. Ultraviolet Lighting also can be added to reduce the illness and disease- causing microbes living and multiplying in indoor air. In combination with a quality filter, it is the most effective way to reduce airborne contaminants and the health risks they represent.
In addition, a well-designed HVAC system should consider both temperature and moisture control. Air that lacks sufficient moisture can cause respiratory problems. If the air is too moist, mold can grow and cause your home’s millwork to crack, doors to stick or swell and cabinets to warp. To control moisture in the air, an auxiliary energy recovery ventilation (ERV) and dehumidification equipment can be incorporated into you HVAC system.
Properly designed and installed duct systems also are essential in maintaining uniform temperatures throughout the house, efficiently and quietly. Duct systems that leaks or are unbalanced may bring unconditioned air into your home, increasing heating and cooling costs and drawing humidity, dust and mold spores into the building from the attic, crawl space or garage.
