Most people spend more time indoors then out, and unfortunately, there are potential sources of air pollution in every room of your home.  Space heaters, ranges, ovens, stoves, furnaces, fireplaces and even hot water heaters add gases and particles to the air.  High humidity contributes to mold, mildew and dust mites, while low humidity leads to sore throats and itchy eyes.  Cleaning products, pest control, pet dander, hygiene products and electronic devices all add to the mix, jeopardizing your health.  The concerns of indoor air quality are only just beginning to be realized, but the HVAC industry has answered the challenge with a broad spectrum of air quality solutions.

State-of-the-art purifier systems trap and kill bacteria, viruses, mold spores, allergens and other pollutants, eliminating them from the air you breathe.  Unforgiving when it comes to pathogens, air purifiers clean indoor air multiple times an hour to remove contaminants that are up to 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin.  Whole-home air purifiers treat 100% of the air passing through your system before it circulates, offering unsurpassed germicidal capability, and helping your HVAC system run more effectively and efficiently.

Mold and bacteria thrive on indoor coils of heating and cooling systems.  UV lamps kill these organisms, improving air quality, and increasing your system’s performance.  When mold builds up on interior coils, airflow can be degraded by nearly ten percent.  With the addition of a germicidal UV lamp, coil cleaning can be a thing of the past, and by staying cleaner, your system will operate more efficiently, costing you less money.

Your home needs to stay properly hydrated in order satisfy comfort and maintain the health of those living in it.  Air that is exceptionally dry can act like a sponge, soaking moisture from everything it touches in your home.  Woodwork, wood floors and furnishings can be damaged.  Symptoms of dry skin, chapped lips, and dry nasal passages are triggered by overly dry air.  You’ll also experience static electricity.  Humidifiers can help introduce moisture into your home, achieving appropriate humidity levels, increasing comfort and decreasing heat bills.  Since humidified air feels warmer, you’ll be able to lower the thermostat in winter without sacrificing comfort levels.

Many pollutants are water-soluble.  Removing moisture from the air removes these pollutants.  By keeping humidity at the ideal level, you’ll reduce dust mite allergens and feel more comfortable in your home.  When the air is hot and sticky, you lack energy and have trouble sleeping.  When moisture levels are kept under control, you feel better, sleep better and enjoy your time at home.  Dehumidifiers also lower energy costs, improving comfort while lessening the strain on your air conditioner.  You’ll be able to set your temperature a little higher in the summer, so your air conditioners runs less while still keeping you feeling cool.

To save energy, we’ve made our houses tighter and decreased potential ventilation.  With less air coming in, there’s less chance for bad gases to escape.  That means you’re conditioning and circulating the same stale, trapped air.  With the introduction of ventilators, purifiers or air treatment systems, you’ll feel better, save money on utility bills, and enjoy a cleaner, healthier indoor environment.

The wide range of quality products to combat indoor air quality can be a bit overwhelming.  Call Riley Heating & Cooling to speak to a knowledgeable and helpful representative of our specialized team.  We would be happy to discuss options and make recommendations.  Our job is to make you and your family completely comfortable.
