You don’t have to live with poor indoor air quality. Whether the air always feels stuffy or the moisture levels never seem to be right, you can improve the air you breathe with techniques and devices. Here are six HVAC devices to enhance the quality of the air in your home.
Air cleaners take the clean air process to the next level. They work with your central HVAC system to trap much more dirt and dust than a standard air filter alone captures during a cycle. Air cleaners can trap pollen, pet dander, smoke, and bacteria. Most can even trap airborne pathogens down to a size of one or one-third micron, which means potentially harmful pathogens such as the common cold virus.
Prevent the spread of bacteria as well as mold issues in your home with UV lamps. Some environmental conditions can cause your heating and cooling system’s coil to become a breeding ground for mold spores and bacteria. UV lamps can help stop the problem at the source. Ultraviolet (UV) lamps reside near the indoor coil and drain pan, killing the harmful bacteria before they have a chance to enter the air supply.
A ventilator might be the answer to your problems if your home continually feels stuffy, and it’s difficult to draw in the fresh air regularly. These appliances pull in fresh air while expelling stale air with each cycle. As an added bonus, many ventilators also help reduce energy consumption by using the energy of outgoing air to condition incoming air.
Add moisture to dry, winter air with a whole-house humidifier. The humidifier adds air either via steam or water vapor. Since these appliances address the air throughout your home, you can rest assured that healthy humidified air pipes to every room in the house.
Whole-home dehumidifiers work with your heat and air unit to extract moisture from the air with each cycle. Portable models also work well for localized areas such as basements.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Carbon monoxide is one of the most dangerous airborne contaminants, and the most difficult to detect. This gas is invisible, odorless, and tasteless. It can cause illness before you even realize it’s present.
A carbon monoxide alarm can safely detect this dangerous gas and alert you to its presence before it causes ill effects or even death.
