Indoor Air Quality

UVC Germicidal Lights

From today’s Corona Virus Pandemic to the everyday airborne microorganisms like bacteria, mildew, and mold, Healthy Climate UV Germicidal Lights can help. The powerful ultraviolet light these components produce help dramatically reduce and eliminate the biological contaminants from the air flowing through your HVAC system. With these Healthy Climate UVC Germicidal Lights having NO Ozone Emissions which are a known lung irritants, this is one of best options along with a good filter in keeping your home a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment.

Filtration

Filtration is the removal of particulates from air flowing through heating and air conditioning equipment. There are inline systems, bypass type and stand-alone systems that can remove airborne particles of varying size. The 1″ filter supplied with standard equipment provides the minimal filtration needed to protect the internal parts and operation of the equipment. Upgrading to high efficiency media filters is a great way to improve indoor air quality.

Adding HEPA systems provide even further particulate removal by sampling the air from your home and putting it through a three-stage filtration system. UVC systems use ultra-violet light inside the ductwork to neutralize airborne contaminates, such as legionella, mold, bacteria and viruses. In addition, the units assist in alleviating symptoms associated with asthma, Sick Building Syndrome and some allergies. We use only proven, industry-approved products that deliver as promised. Our company can design a tried and true filtration system to suit your needs and budget.

We also provide installation, maintenance and repair of your home’s air filtration system.

Humidity

Controlling humidity is essential to achieving a healthy indoor environment. Humidity is important for respiratory comfort, furniture and artwork preservation, and even for preventing cracks in your home’s millwork. In Kentucky, this means adding humidity during the heating months and removing humidity during the summer. Bypass humidifiers are clean, low-maintenance and effective at replacing humidity lost from heating systems. Homes with large air volume, antique furniture and valuable artwork often benefit from steam humidity. Steam humidifiers add ample humidity and can deliver humidity independently of the heat by running the blower as needed.

In the summer, many homes suffer from too much humidity, which can lead to damp, musty homes and even mold problems. A central dehumidifier can be utilized in several ways to provide dry, fresh air throughout your home. Central dehumidifiers can also be used to bring fresh air into your home to alleviate stale, stagnant air that results from tightly sealed homes.

A R&D Indoor Comfort HVAC contractor can assess your home’s humidity needs and design a year-round solution.

Infiltration

This concerns the air that leaks into your house in an uncontrolled manner, which can be due to windows and doors, roof/floor penetrations, attic stairs, can lights, and more. Beyond sealing any penetrations, R&D Indoor Comfort can pressurize your home with conditioned outdoor air to insure that any air coming in the house is controlled and air leakage is from the inside/out. Air can also be ventilated from the house without affecting your heating and cooling system. Ventilation involves removing indoor air while simultaneously introducing fresh, filtered, tempered air in exchange. This is a good solution for tightly sealed homes or basements that suffer from stale air. There are a variety of products and ways to apply them to address infiltration.

An indoor air quality solution should address all three of these areas. Recent EPA studies have shown that indoor air is often more harmful then outdoor air. Our company believes in designing systems that not only meet the heating and cooling requirements of a space but also consider the indoor air quality in totality. Plus, we offer installation, maintenance and repair services for your air filtration system at any time.
