It’s important for your home to have good ventilation.  According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution and stale air are responsible for health problems such as allergies, headaches, rashes, asthma, and sinusitis.  The introduction of fresh air, even when windows are closed, improves Indoor Air Quality by getting rid of pollutants and taking care of moisture that can lead to mold issues.  An efficient ventilation system recovers up to seventy percent of energy from conditioned air leaving the home, and by circulating air through ducts and fans, helps you maintain proper airflow.

A UV light, installed directly in your central air system, can prove extremely beneficial.  UV light penetrates and interrupts the DNA of contaminants, sterilizing airborne bacteria, allergens and odors, and rendering them harmless.  These systems kill mold that thrives in the cool, damp interior of your air conditioner, robbing the system of efficiency and requiring professional cleaning.  The addition of a germicidal UV lamp increases the value of your air conditioner by eliminating contaminants from the air handler, preventing slime build up in the drain pain, and prolonging blower life.  You’ll enjoy healthier air to breathe, more efficient operation, and extended service life from your cooling system.

Your home may suffer from insufficient humidity.  Itchy eyes, sore throat, bloody noses, dry mouth, cracked and itchy skin, and static shock are all symptoms of overly dry air.  The careful control of humidity is one of the most important aspects of home comfort, and yet it is often ignored.  When properly maintained, humidity offers many proven benefits to health and comfort.  According to the American Society of Otolaryngology, inadequate humidity can make people more vulnerable to infection.  Low humidity is also responsible for higher energy costs.  Dry air makes you feel cold, leading to higher thermostat settings and more costly utility bills.  The addition of a whole-home humidifier allows for the perfect amount of moisture in your home.  These units work silently and efficiently, and save you money by helping you to feel comfortable at lower temperatures.  According to the EPA, every degree you lower your thermostat can trim four percent from your heating bill.

If excessive humidity is a problem, you may be dealing moistures issues, such as mold, mildew, dust mites, and insect infestation.  Overly high humidity makes you feel tired, sticky, and uncomfortable, requiring your cooling system to work much harder.  Through whole-home dehumidification, you’ll feel more comfortable at higher temperatures, allowing you to raise thermostat settings and save money on energy bills.  Properly maintained humidity protects your health, home furnishings, and boosts productivity.

In the battle against allergens like dust, pollen, dander, and mold, it’s best to be proactive.  In 1990, the US Environmental Protection Agency listed indoor air pollutants as a high priority public health risk.
