Indoor Air Quality HVAC Systems
Temperature control is only one aspect of your home or business HVAC system. Air quality is something often overlooked.
"Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors,1 where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations." ~ Environmental Protection Agency
Controlling and reducing common pollutants can reduce the risk of health concerns and contribute to the comfort of residents, employees, and customers. Air purifiers remove pollutants and contaminates from the air by filtration or ionization. Ultra-violet air purifiers use UV light to destroy micro-organisms in the air without chemicals, odors, or filters. Shafer's Heating and Air Conditioning is your source for air purifiers and ultra-violet lamps from Aprilaire, Carrier, Honeywell, and Premier One.
Humidity and Your Home
Excess moisture poses a serious health risk to those who live in your home, causing mold, mildew, fungi, spores, bacteria, and other biological toxins where household furniture, bedding, and more have absorbed moisture. It is also the primary cause of harmful dust mites that live in bedding, rugs, draperies, and the air in your home, making allergy and asthma sufferers feel worse.
Air that is TOO dry can also cause health risks. Dry air can irritate your eyes, throat, and lungs, and cause dry skin. In addition, the wood in your home can dry out, creating gaps in your floorboards, windows, and furniture joints.
Having proper moisture levels in your home is essential to reducing these health and household concerns. Shafer's offers dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture and can install humidifiers right into your central heating system to help you maintain optimum indoor air quality.
