Home Air Quality Services
While it’s commonly known that HVAC professionals help homeowners keep the air in their homes comfortable by providing cooling in the summer and heating in the winter, our industry also offers homeowners the opportunity to keep the air in their homes healthier and cleaner. We have been offering indoor air quality products and services for decades. It’s important to us to make sure our customers are educated on how proper HVAC products/services can lead to better health.
Keeping your indoor air clean and healthy for your family is an important goal. Indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoors. Part of the problem is that homes are being built tighter and tighter to make them efficient, which unfortunately results in increased trapping of pollutants, bacteria, cleaning agents, and other things we drag in from outside.
If you or a family member has allergies to particles such as dust or pollen, there is a lot that we can do to help you manage the condition more effectively. With our duct cleaning and indoor home air quality services in Ohio, you can make a change to breathe more easily.
Why You Need An Indoor Air Quality Professional
Even people who do not have allergies may have symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Cincinnati, Columbus, or Dayton. Through our IAQ services, we can identify ways to help eliminate contaminants and allergens common to the area. Improving the ventilation in your home often makes it easier to control allergies or asthma, as well as the humidity.
A traditional HVAC air filter (the 1-inch pleated filter) is only taking care of up to one-third of indoor air pollution. Those filters are only designed to grab airborne particulates, including dust, fibers, hair, pollen, etc. – not microbes. There are additional efforts you can make to improve the cleanliness of your home's air, and we'd like to show you what options we can provide for your family.
We offer the following clean air services:
- Whole-House Humidifier Installation: Indoor air humidity levels are recommended to be anywhere between 40-50%; if you are experiencing dry air at home, consider having a house humidifier installed and hooked up directly to your existing heating and cooling system.
- Duct Cleaning: Ductwork that becomes very dusty or dirty can cause system airflow/performance issues and keeps indoor air quality levels low. A whole-home duct cleaning is recommended to alleviate these issues (recommended every 5 or so years).
- Installation of Indoor Air Quality Systems: For homeowners who need a higher level of filtration or purification, we feature a variety of indoor air quality systems that can even work with your existing heating and cooling equipment.
Whether you are suffering from dry air, allergies, or breathing difficulties, homeowners can rely on the indoor air quality expertise of our technicians. If you’ve tried other home air quality products in the past with little to no results, it may be time to contact a professional to provide a more effective solution.
Is UV-Light Technology New?
Well before the COVID-19 pandemic, UV-light technology was used to eliminate the genetic material in viruses, bacteria, and fungi, preventing them from reproducing. Today, more and more homeowners are harnessing the power of ultraviolet light (UV), which has been described as bringing the sun’s energy indoors. If members of your family suffer from serious allergies, an HVAC professional may recommend installing a UV light system to kill microbes as they pass through your system.
What Indoor Air Quality Products Do You Offer?
UV technology is designed to eliminate/kill microorganisms, VOCs, odors, and gases. The Fresh-Aire APCO-X, whole-house UV light treatment system eliminates up to 99% of SARS-COV-2 (the virus which causes COVID-19 virus), as well as bacteria and mold spores from the indoor air. The system is installed into a home’s HVAC airstream, cleaning all the air in the home while saving customers money by keeping the central air system clean. Read the breakthrough report here that details the scientific studies that have been performed on the APCO-X.
Logan Services also sells the Fresh-Aire Blue Tube UV, which is one of the most popular germicidal UV products in the world. Installed near the indoor AC evaporator coil, the UV light helps kill biological contaminants and promotes healthy indoor air quality. Bulbs last up to 24 months.
UV lights often are paired with electronic air cleaners, such as our Perfect Air Plus. The one-inch-thick air filter can be added to most newer heating systems and eliminates up to 99% of airborne allergens, including pollen, dust, dust mites, pet dander, and odors. Learn how our Perfect Air Plus electronic air filtration works to eliminate harmful particulates from the air.
How Commonly Utilized Are UV-Light Systems?
Fresher air leads to healthier living, and that’s something our team at Logan Services intends to help homeowners achieve. Although we specialize in residential, retro-fit HVAC installation, it’s worth noticing that many other businesses and commercial groups are also recognizing the benefits of UV light technology.
