Make indoor air quality a priority. Healthy air shouldn’t be optional. It is essential for everyone in your family from your children to your pets, and it encourages good sleep, overall health and comfort. Indoor air has a tremendous effect on your quality of life. At Sullivan Oil & Propane, we have an arsenal of products and practical solutions for managing air quality in your home.
What’s in the Air You Breathe?
Pollutants are found in every part of your home. Smog and environmental pollutants enter from the street and mingle with viruses, bacteria, pet dander and pathogens that accumulate indoors. Then, there are dust mites, mold and mildew that thrive in humid conditions. These irritants can be removed by air cleaners and controlled by monitoring and correcting humidity levels. Servicing your HVAC equipment is a simple and effective way to ensure that your air conditioner is functioning properly and removing humidity. At Sullivan Oil & Propane, our indoor air quality experts use a multi-faceted approach to identify and correct sources of pollution.
1. First, we’ll assess the quality of the air in your home.
2. Then, we will inspect your air ducts, examine your HVAC equipment and identify the primary sources of indoor pollution. Source control, such as duct cleaning, is crucial for improving air quality.
3. After we have identified and addressed the primary sources of pollution, we’ll recommend improvements to manage air quality and maintain a healthy environment in the future.
Ventilators and Air Purifiers
Ventilation equipment and air purifiers improve air flow and reduce the concentration of pollutants. All homes are built with features that facilitate passive ventilation, but this isn’t always enough to maintain healthy air. Modern ventilators exhaust stale air and use recovered energy to heat or cool fresh air that’s pulled in from the great outdoors.
If you suffer from allergies, asthma or breathing problems, whole-house air cleaners can alleviate many of your symptoms. These filtration systems physically remove particles as the air in your home circulates through the HVAC unit. The state-of-the-art systems that we offer today can remove viruses and the smallest pathogens. Filters are long lasting, and maintenance is easy.
High humidity creates many air quality concerns, but some homes struggle with low humidity, particularly if you enjoy using a fireplace or woodstove for heat or ambiance. In that case, whole-home air humidifiers are an excellent option. They release atomized vapors into your air ducts. Moisture levels can be controlled with precision directly from your thermostat. If you suffer from dry, irritated airways in the winter, air humidifiers can help.
