Families in Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Staunton, Waynesboro, or the surrounding areas deserve clean, healthy air in their homes. At Valley Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, our experts install products that balance humidity levels, capture particulates, and get rid of volatile organic compounds.
Common Indoor Air Quality Challenges
The air inside the average home is filled with particles and chemicals including VOCs, pollen, and dust. On average, concentrations of these pollutants are two to five times higher compared to the air outside.
Many of these contaminants aggravate allergy symptoms, cause respiratory irritation, and impact your overall comfort. If you’re looking for a way to maintain clean indoor air, our experts can recommend air filters and other products that are tough on pollutants and easy on your health.
Air Cleaners and Purifiers
Airborne particulates are some of the most common indoor pollutants. Fortunately, they’re also relatively easy to control. Whole-house air purifiers use powerful multistage filters to capture contaminants along with static electricity to disable microscopic germs that cause seasonal illnesses. Some advanced air cleaners can filter the air eight times in an hour and trap up to 99% of particles as small as a tenth of a micron, including:
- Carpet fibers
- Pet dander
Air Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
For optimal air quality, experts recommend maintaining relative humidity levels around 50%. Ambient moisture naturally increases in the summer and declines in the winter. Air humidifiers and dehumidifiers can be used to balance moisture levels as they shift throughout the year. These devices are recommended for a variety of applications, such as:
- Controlling dust mites, other organic growth, and allergens
- Relieving airway irritation and respiratory discomfort
- Protecting furniture, instruments, and collectibles
Ventilators are ideal for exhausting contaminants that can cause headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Tightly sealed homes allow pollutants to build up indoors, some of which can’t be filtered out but can be exhausted. Many of the products we install use heat exchangers to capture energy as they expel pollutants and bring in fresh air. Ventilation systems are helpful for controlling pollutants like:
- Carbon dioxide from candles and fireplaces
- Chemical pollutants, including air fresheners
- Volatile organic compounds, such as formaldehyde
