What Does Indoor Air Quality Mean?
In the briefest terms, it means a feeling for freshness and comfort in your San Antonio, TX home. We have our share of temperature extremes to deal with, but colds and flus can spread through your air any time of the year, and you need to watch out for them too. Molds and bacteria flourish when the humidity is high, while low humidity can dry out sinuses and leave you vulnerable to colds. Dust can make your home much less enjoyable, as well as coating components in your heater and air conditioner and increase the chances of a breakdown. Every home is unique and these issues will vary based on yours. But Riteway Service Company handles all indoor air quality issues with a wide variety of products, including the following:
Air balancing is simply a means of ensuring that all aspects of your system – heater, air conditioner and vents – are working in harmony, and not at cross–purposes. It’s usually applied in commercial systems but can be used in residential settings as well: optimizing your system and ensuring that no energy is wasted.
Air Filtration Systems
Air filtration systems usually refer to the filters themselves. Every system has at least one, but you can upgrade it with additional filters or simply with a filter that strains through smaller and finer particles. In particular, look for filters with the HEPA label, which stands for "high efficiency particulate air."
Air filtration systems are essentially screens, but an air purifier goes one step further. It uses an ionization chamber to charge all dirt and dust particles that pass through it. They stick to the walls of a collection chamber, removing themselves from the flow of air. When placed at the apex of your heating and air conditioning system, they can "scrub" the air clean while your system runs.
Our summers get very muggy and when the relative humidity rises above 50%, it can make your home miserable. A whole–house dehumidifier pulls the excess moisture out of the air. Your home feels more comfortable, mold and sickness won’t spread, and it even helps your air conditioner function more effectively.
When your ducts suffer a breach – usually due to external damage or failing bolts connecting two or more parts of the ductwork – it can pull in dust and other contaminants, as well as compromising your heater and air conditioner’s ability to do their job. Duct sealing can correct that problem.
Insulation helps make your home more energy efficient, and because our winters are so mild in San Antonio, TX, most homes don’t have enough. But proper, professionally installed insulation helps your home stay cool in the summer as well as warm in the winter. It both keeps hot air out and keeps hot air in.
UV Air Purifier
UV light is harmless to us, but lethal to germs and similar creepy crawlies. A UV air purifier is simply a UV light placed at the apex of your ducts will "scrub" the air clean as you run your heater or air conditioner, killing germs and bacteria as they circulate through your home and improving the indoor air quality in the process.
