Keeping your home comfortable throughout the year can feel like a battle. It may be a fight that you are only seeing half of, though.
Keeping your house comfortable is about more than just temperature control. It is also about your indoor air quality.
The quality of the air in your home can be dependent on factors such as dirt and dust concentration, humidity levels, and even how much fresh air is able to enter the house.
As you can guess, achieving good indoor air quality isn’t always easy. Thankfully, we can help.
Air Filtration System
Don’t mistake this for your average air filter. An air filtration system is installed within your ductwork where it helps to remove a variety of debris from the air in your home.
These systems contain semi-permeable filters that are meant specifically to capture and remove debris from the air that is entering your home.
Using an air filtration system that is within your ducts will help to reduce the concentration of airborne debris in the house, rather than just filtering the air in one room.
This may help reduce allergy or respiratory issues, keep things cleaner, and improve your overall comfort.
Air Purification System
If an air filtration system doesn’t offer quite as much protection as you’d like, then it is a good idea to consider an air purifier in Kelowna, BC. These systems are also installed within your ducts, allowing them to clean all of the air that enters your home. They can do this in one of two ways:
- Electricity: An electric purifier charges airborne particles, allowing them to be captured on a magnetic plate where they are held. This successfully prevents these particles from recirculating throughout the home and irritating you.
- UV Light: These types of purifiers use ultraviolet light to combat airborne contaminants. The difference here is that they destroy the particles or alter their genetic code so that they can’t reproduce. This makes them helpful against mold spores, viruses, and bacteria.
Air purification systems can be great for anyone that needs added assistance with fighting illness, allergies, or respirtatory problems.
Whole-House Humidity System
Last but certainly not least, you may want to consider the use of a humidifier or dehumidifier. These systems can help with addressing humidity levels that are no longer comfortable.
Whole-house humidifiers add enough moisture to the air to combat dry air that makes thing cold and uncomfortable. Whole-house dehumidifiers can get rid of excess moisture in the air, preventing your house from feeling muggy and hot during the summer.
And, of course, since these systems are in your ductwork too, they help with all of the air in the house.
These are three options that we’d advise considering for your home if you are hoping to bring your comfort level up. The thing to remember is that you need a professional to install these systems.
