VENTILATION & AIR QUALITY
Ventilation is vital to modern buildings to maintain the health of the occupants and the integrity of the building itself.
Introduce Fresh Air
By connecting a fresh air supply to your ductwork, your furnace or air handler will pull fresh air in from outside, slightly pressurizing your home or building and driving out stale air.
By installing a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) , you can balance the flow of incoming fresh air and exhausted stale air, and recover the energy in the outgoing air before it leaves. (Some building codes now require HRV's)
Respiratory problems, dry skin and lower heating system efficiency can all be caused by low winter humidity levels. With a properly installed and maintained humidifier you can keep your thermostat at a lower setting and still be comfortable.
A properly sized air conditioner will dehumidify most homes in our area. Unfortunately, most A/C systems are oversized. If you have moisture and humidity problems, a ducted dehumidifier may be the answer for you.
The standard 1" furnace filter is only intended to keep dust out of your furnace, not clean a building's air. Upgrade to a 5" thick media cartridge filter, or really cut the dust out with a ducted air cleaner.
Building automation and monitoring systems allow us to analyze and track multiple metrics for indoor air quality, and set programs to make real-time adjustments as needed.
