Indoor Air Quality Services & Products for Conyers & the Greater Atlanta Area
Indoor Air Quality is something you’ve probably heard about as an Atlanta area homeowner. What is it exactly? Just a buzz word used to extract more money out of the wallets of innocent people? Actually, as a trusted Atlanta air conditioning contractor, we’re here to tell you that indoor air quality (IAQ) products are worth a look. They can actually work miracles for the health and comfort of your home.
Modern homes are built to be energy efficient, but this in turn traps pollutants like a big container. What pollutants are we talking about? Toxins from paint, household cleaners, finishing products, pet dander, viruses and mold. There are more, but you get the idea. Whenever your air conditioning or heating system is running, all of the airborne toxins are “recycled” into each room of your home.
IAQ products are not mutually exclusive. A UV lamp has a distinct purpose for your indoor coil, and cannot perform the job of a humidifier, or a ventilator. If you have questions, we have the answers. Zack Hammonds A/C Heating Refrigeration, Inc is a trusted Atlanta air conditioning contractor, and you can call us for immediate assistance today at (770) 691-3162.
An air cleaner sits in front of the furnace, after the return air duct and the Trane® CleanEffects™ can remove up to 99.98% of airborne particles – dust, pollen, pet dander, plant spores, fungi, bacteria, tobacco smoke, etc. We even provide models that can trap and kill the flu virus!
Whole Home Humidifier
A whole house humidifier replenishes much needed moisture to your indoor air. In the winter when the furnace is running, air can become too dry, affecting comfort and requiring more heat to feel warm. A whole house humidifier is the answer to this problem.
A steam humidifier will work with any heating system and operate independently of a heat call. This means the most comfortable and efficient operation, because with a variable speed fan, you can constantly replenish the air inside your home.
A ventilator exchanges stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, but you could do that with opening a window, right? The beauty of a ventilator is that it performs this exchange with very little loss of energy. It is able to transfer energy from the indoor air to the incoming fresh air.
A UV lamp has one specific purpose: to protect the indoor coil from mold. When your air conditioning is running, the A/C sends chilled refrigerant to the indoor coil. The damp, dark interior of this coil is a breeding ground for mold that will hurt efficiency and introduce mold spores into your home’s indoor air.
Don’t take your indoor air for granted. Make sure your indoor air is clean and healthy for everyone living in your Lawrenceville, Snellville, Loganville, Covington, or Buford, GA, home.
