Indoor Air Quality Services and Products in Jacksonville and Surrounding Areas
Tight buildings save energy, but fresh air pathways are usually eliminated. As a result, pollutants accumulate inside the living area, which can create serious health issues for those with allergies, COPD, asthma and other respiratory conditions.
How We Approach Air Quality Problems
At Northeast Florida Heating & Air, we recognize how important it is to keep your home’s indoor environment healthy and safe. If you have a family member suffering from breathing difficulties, our indoor air quality experts can design a comprehensive strategy to eliminate unpleasant odors, airborne toxins and other contaminants.
Air Filtration Systems:
A central air filter is an essential component in an efficient IAQ system. Air filters are offered in a variety of different styles, including pleated, cabinet, fiberglass, electrostatic and electronic models. Filter effectiveness is determined by its MERV rating, which is a measurement of the quantity and size of the particulate matter trapped by the filter as the air passes through it. A higher MERV value is better, but it’s important to check with your HVAC contractor to ensure your system has sufficient static pressure for a high efficiency filter.
UV Lights: Ultra violet light is very effective at killing certain organisms. Installed near the evaporator coil or inside the ductwork, UV lights can help eliminate a number of airborne irritants that coat your air distribution system with sticky grime. A UV light will help improve system efficiency and extend the life of your equipment.
Air Duct Cleaning: Over time, airborne pollutants accumulate inside your ductwork. When the HVAC system turns on, these irritants circulate throughout your home and negatively impact those with allergies or asthma. We use mechanical brushes and a compressed air whip to dislodge stubborn dirt and grime inside your ductwork. An industrial-strength vacuum draws out the debris and deposits it in a sealed container, leaving your home clean and smelling fresh.
The Many Benefits of Healthy Indoor Air
You’ll enjoy many benefits when the air inside your home is clean and healthy.
Better Health: When the indoor air is free of pollutants, those with respiratory issues will breathe easier and experience a better quality of life.
Improved Equipment Performance: Polluted indoor air is full of nasty contaminants that build up on vital internal parts inside you HVAC equipment. Dirt and grime degrade efficiency, so the unit has to work longer to produce the same level of comfort.
Cleaner Home: Dust stays airborne for a while, but it eventually settles on floors, countertops and furniture. With an effective IAQ system, your home will stay cleaner, and the air inside will smell fresh and odor free.
Air Quality Inspections
Many of us spend most of our time indoors. However, the air that we breathe in our homes, offices or schools can pose a health problem risk. Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) that circulate in our air can be produced by cleaning chemicals, pets, plus off-gassing of carpets, paint and furniture. If family members seem to have more colds than normal or are suffering allergy symptoms while inside, you may have an indoor air issue. If you suspect an indoor air quality problem, we offer indoor air quality inspection services to confirm or eliminate your suspicions and IAQ products to resolve any problems found.
