According to the EPA, indoor air can be up to 7x dirtier than outdoor pollution. That poor indoor air quality is more common than many of us realize. The quality of air in your home is serious to your comfort and health – especially if you or a family member suffers from asthma or allergies. Toxic molds, fumes from cleaning solutions, and other contaminants pose a serious risk for everyone in your house. This is why Zimmerman offers products and services that will protect your health and improve your comfort.
Avoid breathing problems and more by investing in:
- Air Purifiers – to help remove allergens and other particulates—this will also improve system health
- Humidity Control – whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers
- Electronic Air Cleaners
- Carbon Monoxide Detectors
- Ultraviolet Air Purifiers – these uv lights, which kill bacteria, viruses and mold are installed directly into your ductwork, which also eliminate gases and odors (pictured)
- Duct Cleaning – removes dirt and debris from the duct work, keeps the system clean
Equipment to Keep the Air Clean
Our home air filtration services include the installation of devices that monitor or actively filter contaminants out of your indoor air. Many people think of their furnace filter as the only air filter they need, but this component is used to protect your HVAC system, not your health. A whole home filtration device often has a heavy-duty filter capable of trapping viruses, bacteria and dangerous particles from cleaning products and aerosol sprays.
Air purifiers are a related but different type of equipment capable of eradicating contaminants, and can also improve the smell of your home. These devices are installed in ductwork, where they can operate sight-unseen, and use UV lights to destroy everything from harmful molds, smoke, and gasses to off-putting odors.
Surprisingly, even simply adjusting the humidity in your home will go a long way to create a healthier, more comfortable living environment. High rates of moisture lead to fungal growth which aggravates breathing problems and causes property damage. Whole home dehumidifier installation is especially helpful in properties with damp basements or humid attics, as it clears away the problems permanently and prevents the growth of toxic mold.
Whole home humidifier installation can also a worthy investment, as they prevent the irritation to skin, hair, eyes and lungs that cold weather often introduces. Today’s HVAC systems may offer humidity add-ons, though a stand-alone device may be necessary.
