Air Quality Services

We want you to have the most comfortable life in your home as possible. For us, that means more than taking care of controlling the heating and cooling indoors. It means also helping with ventilation and indoor air quality. The air quality for numerous homes is lower than it should be—in fact, it might be two to five times worse than the air outdoors. That might sound backwards, but according to EPA studies, it’s the truth. Choosing the type of IAQ device to install for your house is something you can trust to us. We’ll see you have the right strength of filters, the correct type of air purifier, or whatever indoor air quality installation will provide the healthiest air for your house. Big Red Services installs and services a number of different air quality systems. You may find that your home will benefit greatly from one or more of the products we offer. But what are your options?

Air Filtration Systems:
The simplest way to explain an air filtration system is that it’s a fiber mesh stretched across a frame and installed in the ductwork of your home to prevent the passing of contaminants. This is different and separate from the air filter that comes standard with your HVAC system—this air filter is designed to protect the inside components of your system and not the quality of your indoor air. Contact us, at Big Red Services, today to learn more!

Air Purifiers: The most common type of air purifier seen in homes is the ionic air cleaner, which ionizes the air to create a negative or positive charge in larger particles moving through your ductwork. The charged particles are drawn down to a set of metal plates, where they are trapped. This is not the only option, though. The UV air purifier, also referred to as UV lights, effectively eliminates biological contaminants from within your ductwork.

Dehumidifiers and Humidifiers:
You may be surprised by just how much humidity levels can impact the comfort and health of your family. If there’s too much ambient moisture in the air, your home may start developing mold and mildew, which is unhealthy and damaging to your property. Too little humidity, however, is just as detrimental. Because your home is a semi-sealed confined space, your indoor air quality can be significantly worse than you might expect. All kinds of chemicals are released into the air from your furniture, carpeting, clothing, and just about everything else you own. In addition, cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, personal care products, and a variety of other products add scents and additional chemicals into the air.

If you, or a member of your family suffers from allergies, or other respiratory issues, your indoor air may be making the problem worse. An indoor air quality test performed by a qualified HVAC company like Big Red Services is the first step in overcoming the problem. If contaminants are found in your air, we’ll recommend a course of action to improve your indoor air quality.
