How often do you think about the air quality in your Livonia, MI home? If you have asthma and allergies, this concern might be on your mind quite a bit. But even if you aren’t prone to respiratory problems, indoor air quality is still important. Tightly sealed homes are riddled with chemicals, toxins, mold, and other pollutants that could cause both short- and long-term health problems. Fortunately, with indoor air quality products from Carrier, Ehlers Heating & Air Conditioning can help you keep the air in your home cleaner and your family healthier. We can provide indoor air quality testing services to determine the air quality in your home and recommend the best products for your home.

The primary function of an HVAC air filter is to trap dust particles that could settle on and damage your HVAC equipment. By choosing an air filter with a higher Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV), it can also trap airborne pollutants that circulate through the ductwork, including pet dander, textile fibers, dust, pollen, mold spores, and even bacteria and viruses in some instances. We’ll help you select a cost-effective air filter with a MERV rating that suits your indoor air quality needs.
The Carrier Infinity air purifier works with your central HVAC system to trap up to 95% of airborne pollutants down to 0.3 microns. The electrostatic air purifier removes larger particles such as pollen and pet dander as well as microscopic bacteria, viruses, fungus, and smoke particles. Patented Captures and Kills™ technology means any living pathogens that become trapped in the tightly woven filter are inactivated. This purifies the air throughout your entire home so your family can breathe easier.
Cold winter air is naturally drier than summer air. Add a little moisture by installing a whole-house humidifier from Carrier. This device works in line with your furnace to deliver moistened air to every room. Benefits include increased comfort, better air quality, reduced static shock, lower energy bills, and protection for wood furnishings.
Carrier’s Comfort Series high-efficiency fan coil circulates the air in your home with variable-speed power. Not only does this provide humidity control in the summer for improved indoor air quality, but it increases the SEER rating on your air conditioner by up to 2 points for noticeable energy savings.
When your home is sealed up tightly for the winter, the air inside can become stale and stagnant. But opening the window isn’t an option when it’s freezing outside! The solution is to install a Carrier Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV). This device exhausts stale air outside and introduces fresh air to the interior. The heat recovery capability means the air is preheated as it enters your home, preventing your energy bills from going up.
Ultraviolet (UV) light is deadly to microorganisms. You can use this to your advantage by installing UV germicidal lights in your ductwork. Any mold, bacteria, viruses, or fungi in the air are deactivated and unable to reproduce, leaving the air in your home cleaner and your family less likely to catch a contagious illness.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas that may be found in your home if a combustion appliance malfunctions. If you have a natural gas or oil-fired furnace, water heater, or clothes dryer, you should install CO alarms on every floor of your home, especially outside the sleeping areas. Keeping this dangerous chemical out of your home is vital to ensure your family’s health and safety since high enough concentrations can be deadly.
