Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality: is it really needed?
You have probably heard about indoor air quality and about air being polluted in homes — but not your home right? Well, you might need to think about that. Your home is like a big container, built to be energy efficient to save on energy costs. This efficient construction traps contaminants inside, only to be recycled into every room of your home via your heating and air conditioning system.

What types of contaminants could really matter in your home though? Quite a few actually. Mold, the flu virus, chemicals from cleaners, paint and wood treatment, bacteria, allergens, pet dander...and more. The good news is that indoor air quality (IAQ) products can transform the air quality in your home by filtering, protecting and refreshing indoor air.
An Important Fact To Remember:
IAQ products are not mutually exclusive. A UV lamp serves a distinct purpose, and cannot perform the job of a ventilator. You don't have to implement them all to reap benefits, but talk to your HVAC dealer so they can recommend the best options. Read more about each product below to learn a little more about their role in making a healthier home.

Read the brief product descriptions below to start learning about how these products work, and the purpose each serves. Together they offer a complete solution that will make your home a healthier and more comfortable place to live.
Indoor Air Quality
Whole House Humidifier

1) Whole House Humidifier

Ever wish you could have moisture restored to your indoor air to help with itchy skin and other discomforts that are associated with dry air, especially in the winter season? A whole house humidifier is the answer. They integrate into your HVAC system, and replenish needed moisture into your home that not only increases comfort, but helps protect wood, furniture, and instruments.
UV Lamp

2) UV Lamp

Many do not understand the purpose of a UV lamp for an air conditioning system. A UV lamp has one job to do — kill mold in the indoor coil. The indoor coil (also called an evaporator) contains tubes of frigid refrigerant that warm air from the home is forced through. When this happens, moisture condensates on the pipes, creating a breeding ground for mold in the coil. Mold can get into the air, and decrease efficiency.
ERV Ventilator

3) Ventilator

A ventilator is a piece of art. It is like having the ability to open the window to let fresh air in without a huge hit on your energy bill. A ventilator exchanges stale indoor air for fresh air outside, while recovering energy used to heat or cool the air during the exchange. An Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) is for the cooling season while a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) is for the heating season.
Electronic Air Cleaner

4) Electronic Air Cleaner

The Carrier® Infinity air purifier, or advanced air filter has an efficiency rating of MERV 15 which measures the ability of an air filter to remove particles from 3 to 10 microns in size. What does that mean in english? It means these can filter out even viruses and bacteria from your air. The air cleaner sits before the furnace intake, and filters all air coming from the home.
