Air Quality Tips
👉 Insulate hot pipes. This prevents overheating.
👉 Make sure all your HVAC equipment is setup properly and integrated correctly. Poor equipment setup and integration actually causes what is a called a “sick home”. This is a syndrome when various equipment works against each other, and the home itself has extremely poor air quality and is unhealthy to live in.
👉 Repair equipment and components as they fail. Equipment that does not work properly is costly to operate and plays havoc with your indoor air quality.
👉 Replace old and obsolete equipment and components. When HVAC equipment gets too old, it no longer can perform to current health standards.
👉 keep your HVAC equipment clean. Dirty equipment does not work properly and can cause damage, and the contamination gets into the air you breathe. This may include plugged coils, rusty vents, dirty boilers and heat exchangers, dirty furnaces, plugged air conditioners.
👉 Smoky outdoor air. When the outside air is smoky, various HVAC equipment brings that air indoors. To improve your indoor air quality, turn off your makeup air and ventilation systems. When the outdoor air is no longer poor, turn the systems back on.
👉 Install an in-duct ultra violet (UV) system. UV lamps inside your duct work kills viruses and cleans your air. Click here for details.
👉 Replace those filters often. Dirty or plugged air and humidifier filters are the number 1 leading cause of poor indoor air quality. When air or humidifier filters get plugged, the air or water cannot pass through them effectively, and equipment does not work properly. The air or water that does get through the dirty or plugged filter is full of dust, dust mites, dirt, and all sorts of contamination. This contaminated air or water vapour gets circulated within your home, and this is what you end up breathing.
Not all filters are created equal. Some filters can only remove main dust or particles from the air. Other filters can remove fine contaminants.
Need new filters? We supply premium filters that remove both the dust and dirt, as well as the fine contaminates. Charcoal air filters are also available to rid odours.
