This avenged air filtration system comes as stand-alone units and can also be added to your HVAC system to enhance the air quality in your home. Unlike traditional air filters where airflow passes through a single filter before being recycled, an air scrubber passes air through a series of filters which are enhanced with UV light to trap particles, gasses, and other air-born contaminants. The UV lighting in combination with the filter system has also been shown to kill some airborne viruses, like the common cold and flu.
This self-cleaning air filtration system can be added to your HVAC system in order to enhance air purification. It uses a system of ionized coils to trap and kill pollutants in your home air. As the air flows through these coils the negative and positive ions kill mold, bacteria, and even viruses. Additionally, the ionization process also reduces allergens, smoke, and static electricity, and can help control odors in the home.
QuietCool Whole House Fan
QuietCool whole house fans are an eco-friendly option for improving Indoor Air Quality, while also reducing your AC bill. When the QuietCool whole house fan is turned on, the fan pulls fresh outdoor air into your home, through your windows, across your living space, into the attic, and out the attic vents, replacing the hot stale air. In addition to removing pollutants and odors, this helps cool the home and attic by up to 30 degrees, and sometimes more, allowing the home and attic to stay much cooler the following day. QuietCool whole house fans and attic fans help consumers save up to 50-90% off A/C related electricity costs, enjoy better health, and cool their home.
The Facts About IAQ
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average U.S. home contains more airborne pollutants than the air outside. The main causes of IAQ problems are the tighter construction of homes since 1970 – and indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air. But there are many other factors that can negatively impact a home’s IAQ including pets, humidity, smoking and the air quality of the surrounding city. Poor ventilation also contributes to poor air quality, which is generally worse in the summer and winter when the windows remain shut.
When the pollutants and allergens (which exist in two forms: biological and chemical) get trapped for an extended period, their effect on the household can be extreme. But the EPA has outlined three basic strategies proven to reduce (and even eliminate) many common IAQ contaminants. Source Control, Improved Ventilation and Air Cleaners are all recommended solutions – our Air Quality Specialists can assist you with options encompassing all three.

Complete Central Air Services
In addition to a healthy IAQ, it is important for you to have a completely reliable and functional HVAC system within your home. During the winter, you and your family rely on your heater for warmth and security. During the summer, your air conditioner provides your family with cool comfort. It is essential that both systems be functioning at peak performance – for maximum efficiency and a healthy IAQ. At all times during the year, you can rely on our team of certified HVAC specialist to provide you with the highest quality central air services. We can also help with ductwork cleaning, IAQ solutions, and much more.
