Did you know that most Americans breathe in more air pollutants inside their homes than when they are outdoors? At Balanced Air, the indoor air quality (IAQ) products we carry and install help rid your home of the harmful contaminants that are all too often trapped indoors. We’re here to help home and business owners with air quality issues throughout Port Richey, Wesley Chapel, Clearwater, Palm Harbor, FL, and the surrounding areas.
Sources of Indoor Air Pollution
Dust mites, chemical vapors, pathogens, organic growth — how do so many pollutants wind up inside your home? Allergens like pollen, soot, and animal dander hitch a ride indoors on your clothing and hair. Other contaminants are generated by everyday household activities, such as cooking, vacuuming, and dusting.
From cleansers and air fresheners to personal care products, many ordinary items emit chemicals into the air every time you use them. Airborne pollutants are particularly harmful to people with allergies and asthma; long-term exposure can impact the health of everyone in your family.
Ventilation System Solutions
Introducing fresh air into your indoor environment is one of the most effective ways to address poor indoor air quality. Unfortunately, keeping the windows and doors of your home open is rarely a practical option. Energy recovery ventilators offer a cost-efficient alternative.
These innovative systems capture energy from the outgoing air to pre-filter the fresh air they bring indoors. Since biological contaminants thrive in humid conditions, adding a whole-home dehumidifier can make the ventilator even more effective at clearing the air.
Air Purification Systems
One of the most affordable indoor air quality options, whole-house filters help stop pollutants in their tracks. Also known as box filters for their shape, these high-efficiency filters get installed within your ductwork, capturing up to 99 percent of airborne contaminants. Also designed to work in tandem with central-air HVAC systems, air cleaners, and air purifiers offer additional options. Call Balanced Air to schedule a consultation, and we’ll help you select the product that best meets your needs and fits your budget.
At Balanced Air, our certified service technicians are skilled in aspects of HVAC technology. We understand there’s more to indoor climate control than maintaining a comfortable environment. Keeping the air that you breathe free of contaminants is equally important. For more information about our indoor air quality solutions, call us today.
