We’ll help you breathe easierA shocking statistic you need to know about: in studies of homes across the country, they are finding indoor air to be as much as 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. The quality of your indoor air can have a huge impact on your family’s health and well being and can lead to troubling symptoms such as headaches, nausea, lethargy, allergies, asthma, sleeplessness, and other health issues. It can even contribute to depression and the lack of concentration. Small children, the elderly, or anyone with a compromised immune or respiratory system are at the greatest risk.
The three main contributing sources of indoor air pollution
- Airborne Particles such as dust and pollen
- Biological Contaminants including mold spores, dust mites, viruses, fungi, bacteria, and yeast
- Gases and Odors such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which come from materials in your home from carpeting and paint to adhesives and cleaning compounds
Tom’s Heating has indoor air solutions designed to help you breathe easier
Remove surface dust with frequent cleaning, including vacuuming and dusting. Professional duct cleaning will remove dust, mold, and other debris from your ductwork. Air purification systems with ultraviolet light can be added to your home’s heating and cooling equipment to help reduce and destroy contaminants by bathing your air in high intensity UV light. Too much humidity or too little can be equally problematic. Keeping humidity within optimal levels will inhibit growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi and help reduce respiratory infections and allergies. Depending on your needs, we can install humidifiers and dehumidifiers to create perfect humidity in any season.
Proper filtration is key to improving the quality of your indoor air. Air cleaners can be installed as an integral part of your home's heating and cooling system. Every time your system runs, dust, pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria, and viruses (and more) are being removed from your air - leaving you with air that is as clean as possible. The air cleaners available today from Tom’s Heating remove up to 97.5 percent of household dust and 99.9 percent of allergy-causing pollen and spores. There are models available that use ‘capture and kill’ technology that is lethal to airborne bacteria, mold, and viruses.
Poor ventilation in your house can make a polluted air situation worse. Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) are air re-balancing systems that bring in and filter fresh outdoor air while removing stale indoor air. These systems also capture energy and use it efficiently to heat or cool the incoming air for increased comfort and energy savings.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Carrier’s carbon monoxide alarms use sophisticated electronics and unmatched sensor technology to detect and record the levels of CO circulating in your indoor air. When dangerous levels are present, a loud alarm automatically alerts you and your family, so you can safely and immediately open doors and windows for fresh air.
UV lights from Carrier zap mold and bacteria that can sometimes grow in the moist environment of your heating and cooling system. Unhealthy pollutants are killed before they can circulate through your family’s home.
Carrier humidifiers are designed to keep your home at a comfortable humidity so you feel warmer in winter even if the temperature inside is lower. Whole house steam, fan-powered, or flow-through humidifiers also improve your air quality and decrease static electricity—what type we help you choose is largely based on the square footage of your home.
When it comes to indoor air quality, every home is unique. The indoor air quality experts at Tom’s Heating will work with you to help determine the best IAQ products and services to address your specific needs.
