Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality in Your Minnesota Home
Maintaining a good indoor air quality in your home can have a significant impact on your overall health. Pollutants can easily become trapped inside the walls of your home and cause flare ups of allergies, asthma, or even contagious diseases if left unchecked. Fortunately, there are plenty of excellent options for improving the indoor air quality in your home with purification systems.
At AirTech, we offer a wide variety of filtration devices that will keep your indoor air quality in check.
Whole-House Air Cleaners
These specialized adaptations are built into the returning air ductwork of your HVAC system. This placement allows them to trap particles in the air as they pass through the ducts.
Electronic filters remove particles from the air in a unique and effective way. As particles in the air pass through the ductwork, the electronic filter uses a high-voltage current to place an electrical charge on them. When they reach the opposite end of the unit, a collector plate with an opposite charge is waiting for them. The plate works like a magnet and particles get caught there instead of floating back into your house.
Since we crank up our heaters so often in Minnesota, that also means we deal with lots of dry air. This can irritate your skin and respiratory system, or just simply make your home uncomfortable. With a quality humidification system, you can restore your air to the proper moisture levels and to better comfort.
Whole-House Ventilation Systems
With the addition of a whole-house ventilation system, you can improve your control over the exchange of indoor air and outdoor air. Using additional fans and/or duct systems, a whole-house ventilation system will exchange the stale indoor air with fresh air from the outdoors at a faster pace.
Ultraviolet Treatment Systems
Using the power of ultraviolet lights, these filtration devices eliminate germs from the air. The radiation destroys pollutants like allergens, bacteria, viruses, and mold that are flowing through your ducts or growing on the surfaces of your HVAC. By pairing UV treatment with a filtration system, you can effectively sterilize your air and your HVAC unit.
