Indoor Air Quality in Denver
Cleaner, Fresher, Healthier Air for Your Family
Indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air. At AAA Service Plumbing, Heating & Electric, we improve indoor air quality by installing and maintaining air purification systems for your heating and cooling systems. Our heating and AC team tests for allergens, mold, fungus, carbon monoxide, and other toxic airborne pollutants.
Based on this information, we can recommend the right air purification system for your home. We provide complete indoor air quality services in Denver, such as indoor air quality testing and system installation, repair, and maintenance.
If I don’t have allergies, why do I need an air cleaner?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that indoor air is, on average, 7-10 times worse than the outdoor air you breathe. Air can directly effect your health and well being. Besides allergies, poor air quality is linked to a number of problems: fatigue, asthma, respiratory ailments, the spread of flu and other disease.
What Are the Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality?
A home with poor indoor air quality can seriously impact both the safety and comfort of occupants. Poor air quality is often the result of chemicals, dust, pollen, pet dander, poor circulation, lack of fresh air, mold, smoke, and more. In order to keep your home clean and safe, it is important to be able to identify potential issues with your air quality.
Signs of poor indoor air quality include:
- Irritation and dryness of eyes, nose, throat, and skin
- Sinus congestion
- Shortness of breath
- Watery eyes
- Frequent nosebleeds
If you notice any of the above signs, reach out to AAA Service Plumbing, Heating & Electric right away. Our Denver indoor air quality experts will perform a thorough air quality test and work with you to determine the best solution for your home.
What Are the Most Common Indoor Pollutants?
When we think of polluted air, we think of factories pumping out plumes of smoke. Many people don’t realize that our indoor air quality is often up to 10 times worse than the air outside. The first step in making sure your home is healthy is to be aware of the most common culprits of poor IAQ.
The most common indoor air pollutants are:
- Carbon monoxide
- Nitrogen dioxide
- Secondhand smoke
- Lead particles
- Household cleaning products
- And more
How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?
As a homeowner, we know your top priority is ensuring your home is as safe and comfortable as possible. If you have poor indoor air quality, there are various things you can do to restore safety to your home such as using cooking vents, changing air filters, controlling indoor humidity, keeping your rugs and carpets clean, and installing indoor air quality systems.
Our team offers several types of indoor air quality systems, including:
- Whole-home air purification systems: These systems are connected to your existing heating, cooling, and ventilation systems to provide protection for your entire home. In addition to effectively purifying your indoor air, they help to keep your HVAC systems more efficient.
- Ultraviolet (UV) air purification systems: Using ultraviolet light, these systems are able to significantly reduce pathogens and microorganisms in the air. UV air purifiers come as stand-alone, freestanding, or whole-home systems installed in HVAC units.
- Carbon monoxide detector systems: Placed throughout all levels of your home, carbon monoxide detectors can sense an amount of 50 ppm or less of carbon monoxide in the air and alert your family, preventing possible poisoning.
- HEPA filters: Used commonly in air purifiers, high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters effectively remove 99.97% of particulates sized 0.3 microns or larger from indoor air. Particles of this size easily evade most other filters.
Which is Better: Electronic Air Cleaner vs. HEPA Filtration System
A whole house HEPA Filtration System is far better than a room-based electronic air cleaner. Also known as ionizers or electrostatic precipitators, electronic air cleaners capture particles on charged plates or grids. Of course, an ionizer’s efficiency will drop off precipitously as the collection plates get dirty. Even when the collection plates are cleaned regularly, they are far less efficient than a true HEPA filter.
Choosing the Right System
When selecting an air filtration system for your home, there are two main factors to consider:
1) Size of the area covered.
The most effective air-filtration options are professionally installed, whole-house systems. Unlike portable units that cover only a single room, these systems work with your central heating and cooling system to remove and destroy pollutants throughout your entire home.
2) Size and types of the pollutants removed.
One highly effective solution is the HEPA filtration system, which removes up to 99.97% of small particles—pollutants that standard disposable filters simply can’t stop. Another is a Media Air Cleaner, which provides high-efficiency air filtration of up to 90% of small particles.
Mildew, bacteria, mold spores, dust mites, fungi, pet dander and viruses are filtered out with a HEPA or media style of filter. Humidifiers can provide effective, whole-house comfort and regulate indoor moisture levels to enhance air quality. Plus they protect your home from dry, damaging air.
We will recommend and install the best air filtration products to make your Denver home's indoor air healthier and safer for your family.
