Everything You Need to Know About Indoor Air Quality
At Cross Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd., we’re proud to offer whole-home solutions to fit your needs and the needs of your family. One of the most important things you can do for your home is to keep the indoor air quality free of contaminants — but not all homeowners are aware of the importance of indoor air quality.
Why is indoor air quality important?
The quality of the air inside your home has a direct impact on your health. Poor indoor air quality can cause illness, nosebleeds and dry skin. The air inside your home typically contains contaminants like dust, mold, mildew, pet dander, chemicals and more, which can all negatively affect the health of your family.
How can Cross Heating help?
It’s important to understand that there’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution for indoor air quality. Before we fit you with a whole-home solution to address your indoor air quality needs, we’ll do an assessment of your home. During this assessment, we’ll discuss any health concerns you may have and determine any issues regarding the air quality in your home.
We typically investigate what solutions, if any, you may have in your home already — then we’ll address your best solutions to combat your particular issues. We’ll work with your budget and provide you with the solution that fits your economic and lifestyle needs.
Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Indoor air quality solutions are wide-ranging and vary depending on your specific requirements and what we can install in your home.
Have you noticed condensation forming on the inside of your windows? If your windows are relatively new and there’s nothing wrong with the windows themselves, heat recovery ventilators and energy recovery ventilators are two great solutions for window condensation.
Having a filtration system in your home isn’t all you need to improve your indoor air quality: you need the right filtration system. HEPA filtration and PCO filtration are two of the best filtration systems that we recommend. These systems break down organic compounds and help to prevent sickness in the home better than other filtration systems.
There are solutions you can incorporate into your current home comfort systems that can make a big difference in your indoor air quality. Media filters are a step up from the standard filters in your HVAC system. Media filters are thicker and more effective than a standard filter, but they do require professional installation.
Many homes dry out, especially in the winter, and the dry air can negatively impact your health, as well as your belongings. Wood furniture, instruments and wood floors all have certain humidification requirements, which may be specific to certain rooms in the home. We can install single-room or whole-home humidifiers, depending on your home’s needs.
