AIR QUALITY SOLUTIONS
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Did you know that, according to the EPA, the air in your home could be more polluted than the air outside in a smoggy city? Because most of us spend a great deal of our time indoors, it’s important to make sure the air we breathe isn’t a risk to our health.
WHY AIR QUALITY MATTERS
Indoor air pollutants can include byproducts of combustion (such as from burning gas, coal, wood, oil, etc.), chemicals used in construction or furnishings, and even household cleaning products. Other pollutants can become trapped inside as well, like pollen, pesticides, and dust.
If stale, polluted air continues to circulate, it can lead to health problems like allergies, colds, asthma, and eye, nose, and throat irritation. At Northern Heating and Cooling, Inc. we are committed to bringing you services and products that improve indoor air quality and help you thrive in your home.
SOLUTIONS FOR CLEANER AIR
An air cleaner collects dust, pollen, and other particles to keep them out of the air you breathe.
UV Air Purifiers
Ultra-violet (UV) lights can deactivate pathogens like viruses, bacteria, and mold, removing some causes of illness from your home’s air.
The right humidity can help reduce irritation and promote more comfortable breathing.
An Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) or Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) brings in fresh air, cleans it, circulates it, and expels stale air from the building. ERV systems are typically used in warm climates, while HRV systems work best for cold, northern climates.
In addition to improving energy savings, thermostats can help regulate air quality through temperature and humidity.
ERV/HRV Wall Controls
Some ERV/HRV wall controls can measure humidity and pollutant levels.
A carbon monoxide sensor can alert residents when CO is building up toward a dangerous level. In a stage one alarm, residents may have time to correct the problem before harmful CO levels are reached. In a stage two alarm, residents must evacuate immediately to be out of danger.
