Indoor Air Quality in Reno
Indoor comfort control is more than just temperature control - it means creating a healthy home environment by purifying your indoor air. Did you know that the EPA considers indoor air quality a major health concern? Modern homes are sealed tight which means that air is trapped inside and not only becomes stale, but polluted with mold spores, pet dander, bacteria and toxins from cleaning and personal care products.
The good news is that Reno Heating & Air Conditioning provides products that integrate into your HVAC system and work together to clean, purify and humidify your indoor air!
activeTek Environmental air and water purification products are some of the finest in the industry using technology to purify indoor air based on the principles found in nature. activeTek products include stand alone purification products along with whole home products designed to integrate into your ductwork and/or HVAC system.
Air cleaners offer an effective way to remove tiny particles - dust, pollens, pet dander, mold spores, fungi, bacteria, tobacco smoke, etc. - from the air that passes through the home. An air cleaner is given a MERV rating to rate the effectiveness of the unit. MERV ratings go from 1-16 with 16 as the highest rating possible.
When your home's humidity level is too low, you can experience things like dry skin and chapped lips, or hardwood floors separating at the seams. Even the piano can go out of tune. In the wintertime, relative humidity inside the average home hovers around 15%, while even the Sahara Desert has an average humidity of 25%. Simply turning up your thermostat in the winter can really dry out your home and make things uncomfortable. A Humidification System can ensure that your home and family are getting the right amount of moisture.
You can protect your home and your family from allergy-causing mold with UV air purifiers / UV Lamps.
These ultraviolet air treatment systems kill mold that would grow in the cool, damp interiors of your air conditioning system. They use the same technology that's long been used by water treatment facilities and is now adapted for safe and efficient home air purification.
Ventilators are part of indoor air quality solutions and replace a portion of stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, reducing energy loss in the process. Air exchangers for instance, let users manually or automatically adjust the fresh air flow. The units retain energy used to heat or cool, saving money on utility bills.
