Indoor Air Quality Experts in Laurel, MD
According to the EPA, your home’s indoor air quality can be quite bad—up to four to five times more polluted than the air outside. This is because contaminants such as viruses, mold spores, bacteria, and allergens can be floating in your air and multiplying at a very fast rate. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has been linked to more and more respiratory diseases and infections, especially in children and the elderly. At ARS of Laurel in Laurel, MD, we want to protect our clients from worrying about these concerns, so we offer the latest technology for improving the air in your home, along with our HVAC maintenance, repair, and installation services.
Home Air Purifiers
Every day, contaminants such as mold, dust, viruses, bacteria, and mites can circulate through your air after passing through your HVAC system. In addition, harmful gases from gas stoves, vehicle exhaust, paints, varnishes, cleaning products, and pesticides can also be dispersed. All of these particles irritate your respiratory tract, aggravate allergies, can worsen asthma, and overall be detrimental to your health and well-being. A whole home air purifier can remove a high percentage of these toxins from your air, drastically increasing your home’s air quality.
Whole House Humidifiers
To maintain a comfortable environment, homes need an adequate amount of moisture. Low humidification levels can result in dry skin and hair, as well as cracked hardwood floors and furniture. A whole house humidifier can measure your home’s humidity levels and add water vapor through your HVAC system when needed. To maintain its efficacy, make sure you keep up with your HVAC maintenance schedule.
Proper dehumidification will reduce your moisture level, increase your comfort, and help improve your indoor air quality by minimizing the possibility of mold and mildew growth. A dehumidifier will also reduce the chances of your flooring and furniture becoming warped or musty due to excess moisture. Your HVAC maintenance appointments will likely go more smoothly as well, since there will be fewer moisture-related concerns.
Germicidal UV Lamps
Germicidal UV lamps destroy virtually any harmful microorganisms – such as germs, viruses, and bacteria – by breaking up their DNA structure. As a result, the microorganisms are destroyed and your indoor air quality will be better. This is particularly helpful for those with sensitive respiratory tracts, lung conditions, and weakened immune systems, such as children and seniors.
