All of our technicians are very familiar with a wide range of indoor air quality technology, including air filters, humidifiers and UV germicidal lights. So no matter what types of indoor air contaminants you are having a problem with, we have the products and services you are looking for.
Air Filtration Services in Westlake, OH and the Surrounding Area
Depending on the types of indoor air pollutants you are dealing with, we can install a variety of air filtration devices to trap and eliminate them. Our selection of air filters includes great products from Honeywell, AprilAire and Trane; each of which is better depending on the situation.
Some systems are better at removing smaller particles like the ones that make up smoke and cooking fumes, and others more effectively remove things like pet dander and pollen. No matter what we find in your indoor air, though, we will put together the best indoor air quality system to get it out.
The Importance of Proper Humidity Control
The level of humidity in your home plays a big part in you overall comfort level and in the quality of your indoor air. Humidity levels that are too high or too low make it harder for your indoor air quality system to remove pollutants and can actually add to their concentrations in some situations.
Things like dust mites cannot survive when humidity levels are below 50%, so simply controlling your humidity properly can actually directly reduce the number of this type of indoor air pollutant. And mold grows much better in humid conditions, so the more humid it is in your home, the more mold spores there will likely be in your indoor air.
When the humidity is too low, on the other hand, many particulate contaminants settle out of your air before they can be removed by your air filter. Under these conditions, even having a top of the line air filtration system in place will not keep your indoor air quality high. Proper humidity control is also beneficial to anyone in your household who has asthma, allergies or other breathing difficulties. Westland Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing offers service to humidifiers and dehumidifiers in Westlake, OH and the surrounding area.
Benefits of Adding UV Germicidal Lights to your Westlake Indoor Air Quality System
While air filtration systems can catch all types of particulate contaminants in your indoor air, they are not particularly effective at eliminating living contaminants like viruses and bacteria. For that, you need the special treatment provided by UV germicidal lights. These devices are usually installed just past your air filter, and they kill the living contaminants in your indoor air by exposing them to a lethal dose of UV rays.
Westland Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing knows how important it is for you to maintain excellent indoor air quality all year long.
