Indoor Air Quality Services in Littleton, CO
We’re in the business of comfort, and that extends beyond the temperature in your home. Comfort also has a lot to do with the quality of the air in your home—and yet, few people pay attention to this when initially outfitting a home with the comfort systems it needs. If your home is without any basic protection for your indoor air quality, we think it’s time to change this.
Contact Southwest Heating and Cooling to get a new indoor air quality system in Littleton, CO. Our systems work to improve the air quality of the entire home, unlike portable systems that only work in one area. Your new air filtration system, ventilator, or humidifier will stay out of the way and ensure that the air is as fresh and clean as it is climate-controlled.
Air Filtration Systems and Air Purifiers
Think an air filter is all you need to keep the air in your home clean? Think again. An air filter protects your AC and heating systems, and it can remove many allergens from the air, but an additional filtration system or air purifier is necessary if you really want to keep your home’s air clean.
We can install an air filtration system with a pleated filter and higher efficiency rating to ensure most of the irritants that make you feel ill will be removed from the air. Moreover, our air purifiers can actually kill germs and sterilize the air to prevent illness and the spread of bacteria and viruses.
Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators
A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) or energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is a great way to deal with that all–too–common complaint: "It’s stuffy in here!" When you run your air conditioner, and especially when you use the heater, air is recirculated—and so are all of the airborne particulates, germs, and odors. But if you crack open a window, heating and AC efficiency suffers.
HRVs and ERVs, which are similar in operation, allow for fresh air to enter the home from the outside. A blower fan brings in air, while a heat exchanger ensures the air gains heat upon entering the home (or loses heat, in the summer).
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
On a dry winter day, when you’re stuck in bed with a cold or flu, a humidifier is one way to help you get through. Dried–out sinuses make illnesses worse, and may allow some viruses to thrive. In addition, the dry air makes you feel cooler, and chaps lips and dries skin.
A dehumidifier is more common in the summer, when high humidity levels can make you feel as if the air is much warmer than it is, leaving you hot and sticky. High relative humidity can also contribute to mold development and mildew.
