What Are You Breathing In?
As our offices and homes become more efficient and “airtight,” we are saving money but also trapping airborne contaminants indoors with us and reducing our indoor air quality. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has said that the air in our homes can be up to 100 times more polluted than the air outside.
Common indoor air pollutants include:
Chemicals & Noxious Fumes
Mold & Fungus Spores
Dust & Pet Dander
Viruses & Bacteria
Unhealthy Levels of Humidity
Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can cause asthma and upper respiratory problems, headaches, fatigue, bacterial and viral infections, and flu-like symptoms. For these reasons, the EPA has ranked indoor air pollution within the top five environmental dangers.
How Custom Air Can Help
We can diagnose the specific needs of your home or office—from humidity balancing to UV light air purification—we can figure out what will be most effective for you. Maintaining an airtight space is ideal for keeping a healthy energy bill, but taking care of your IAQ is ideal for keeping people healthy. Some of our products and services for this include:
Whole House Ventilation Systems
We use Clean Air Defense products for their high quality standards. Products include:
AirRanger – An air purification system which includes polarized-media electronic air cleaners and utilizing low air velocity for effective air cleaning.
BioForce Defender – A whole house system installed directly into the central HVAC system to disinfect the air of bacteria, viruses and mold. It combines the use of filters and germicidal UVC light.
Active BioForce Defender – Another whole house system, this one has increased UVC output, with a special coating to focus the light in one direction. It also has a UV lamp, providing activated oxygen to the airstream.
