Indoor Air Quality

Looking To Improve Your Indoor Air Quality?

air_qualityThe desire for human comfort relies heavily on a heating and cooling system. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning system is designed to provide comfort and improved air quality throughout the year, Primarily in summer and winter. Poor HVAC design often leads to moisture and issue with the air quality, such as discomfort and warmth in areas of the building. The HVAC system can also create pressure imbalance in the building. This can increase air leakage, which may draw additional moisture in the building. Moisture and air leaks often bring about air quality problems from attics, outside and crawl spaces.

Typical air quality problems include:

  • Humidity(higher than normal)
  • Mold
  • Radon from crawl space and under-slab areas
  • Pollen and other allergens
  • Particles and Dust

Air Quality Improvement Products:

Air Filters – Whether the air filter should be changed on a regular basis depends on the application and the use of the equipment. These are several types of the air filter on the market today. How do you know which one to choose? Air Filters are rated by merv. The higher the merv number, the more airborne pollutants it will capture. These filters are also pleated air filters. click for more info

Insulation – Insulation creates a more efficient central air system and plays a significant role in reducing energy costs. Some families try to reduce energy cost by simply cutting back on heating or cooling, but often come to rely heavily on them. Proper insulation can help to lower those energy costs. click for more info

Air Cleaners – An air cleaner pulls the air in through an ionization chamber, in which the pollutants are given an electric charge, then the pollutants get trapped on oppositely charge collector plates.

ERV – The ERV is an air to air heat exchanger that has separate duct systems that draw in outside air for ventilation and distributes fresh air throughout the house. It does this by exchanging cooler indoor air to warmer humid outside by capturing cooling energy, without mixing stale exhaust  and supply air. click to watch video

REME Lights – REME or Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy utilizes an electro magnetic energy cell to create Ionized-Hydro-Peroxides™, a friendly oxidizer plasma made from oxygen and humidity. This air purifying plasma is propelled into the HVAC duct or plenum by a silent plasma propulsion module that has no moving parts, yet propels the plasma at 2 cfm. click to watch videos

UV Lights – RGF’s AUV Stick Light+(PCO) will provide you with years of safe, dependable, economical UV light disinfection and protection of your AC coil surfaces from bacteria, virus, mold growth and odors resulting in a cleaner, more efficient energy-saving system. click for more info

Duct Sealing -In HVAC systems conditioned air is distributed through a house via ducts. Often times, approximately 20 to 30 percent of the air passing through these ducts are lost due poorly connected ducts, leak and holes. This causes the system to work harder,  resulting in higher overall energy cost. click for more info

The thermostat is the number 1 indoor air quality  product in air condition system. This not only tells the unit when to come on or off, it also controls air temperature and humidity. At higher relative humidity levels we may fell uncomfortable, especially at temperature above 78 degrees Fahrenheit. click for more info
