If you live in Atlanta you know how important a high quality, well maintained air conditioner is to your comfort. We may be the local Air Conditioning Experts to call for AC services, but our expertise extends a lot further than home cooling. So too do your home comfort needs. Sure, comfortable air temperatures are a necessary component of keeping your home comfortable, but we believe there is more to it than that. To experience true comfort in your Atlanta home you need to keep the indoor air quality as high as possible. Pollution is not only a problem outdoors, after all. A number of factors can reduce the quality of the air you breathe indoors, but we have a number of solutions to these problems.
Air Cleaners and Purifiers
One of the first options you should consider, especially if you are concerned about airborne pollutants in your home, is air cleaners and purifiers. There are a number of different options in this category. The most basic are simple mechanical air filters. These filters sit in your ductwork and, as air passes through them, they trap pollutants on a filter material.
Electronic air cleaners are another option. Many, such as electromagnetic precipitators, use electricity to charge pollutants in the air. These charged particles are then trapped on a collector plate. The collector plate can then be removed, cleaned and reused.
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
If a humidity imbalance is affecting the quality of the air in your home you may want to consider the installation of a whole house humidifier or dehumidifier. Too much humidity in your home can make the air stuffy and uncomfortable, cause wood rot and even promotes the growth of mold. Too little humidity can cause sore, dry throats and sinuses, chipping paint and splitting woodwork. A whole house humidifier or dehumidifier can help restore proper humidity levels throughout your entire home as they work in conjunction with your home heating and cooling system.
If your air ducts are not clean your home is at risk for polluted air. Once dirt and debris get into your ductwork, that ventilation system can disperse those pollutants throughout your entire home. With professional duct cleaning service you can be sure that your air ducts are circulating clean, pure air only. Schedule service today.
