Indoor Air Quality


According to the EPA, indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. It would definitely surprise you if you were aware of how many contaminants you breath in every day. Mold spores, bacteria, dirt, viruses and allergens float in your air and multiply with very high speed. Smoke, carpeting, furniture, cleaning chemicals, animal dander, dust particles and mildew are always present. So it’s important to clean your air to keep it fresh and free of contaminates so you can breathe pure and healthy air.

Some of the most minor effects of poor indoor air quality are allergies and asthma. Allergens such as dust, pollen, mold, pet dander and cigarette smoke can build up in the air and cause heightened allergic reactions, increasing the illness with time. Colds, allergies, sinus infections and bronchitis are just a few respiratory illnesses that can be caused by or aggravated by breathing impure air. A simple air quality check, some cleaning and minor improvement to your heating and air conditioning system can make you and your family much healthier.

There are several options that can improve air quality in your house:

Duct Cleaning
It’s vital to clean the ducts to remove all the bacteria and dust, as they tend to accumulate over time in a duct system. We recommend having such cleaning on a regular basis.

Humidity Level Control
Low humidity levels can result not only in dry noses, lips, skin and hair, but also in cracked hardwood floors, paint and furniture. Installing a whole-house humidifier directly onto your existing HVAC system can solve this problem. Humidity is injected in the form of water vapor right into your home’s air and is distributed through the ducts and vents.
Your home’s air may be too humid if there is mold or mildew, musty odors, sweaty floors or condensation on your water pipes. Densely humid air can also cause severe breathing problems. In this case you need to install a whole-house dehumidifier in order to minimize the possibility of mold and mildew growth. A dehumidifier pulls water vapor out of the air before the air is recycled back into your conditioned living space.

Filters are made to trap airborne particles and prevent the contaminates from reentering your living area. By installing the right filtration system directly into your heating & cooling system, dust, mites and harmful contaminants can be stopped from traveling freely through your home.

UV Germicidal Lamps
A germicidal lamp, installed inside your heating & cooling system, uses an ultraviolet (UV) bulb to kill germs and harmful contaminants trapped in your home. No matter how much you clean and disinfect, bacteria, mold & germs still blow through the air in your heating & cooling system. Ultraviolet light acts as an additional line of defense to help protect your family. The rays of the UV lamp break up the cellular structure and destroy organic contaminants.

There are many options you can select from when it comes to improving the air quality inside your house or office. Alpine Air Heating & Cooling will gladly help you choose the model that fits your home best. After that we will install and adjust your new system for high performance.
