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. Sometimes a good air filter is all you need, but if you have allergies or children in school, it might be worth it to purchase an air purifier to keep the sick days at bay.
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 your ductwork, including:
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.
Air purifiers help keep your family safe by removing many of the allergens, viruses, and more from the air. Breathe easier at home; contact us today to have an air purifier installed in your Livonia home!
Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers
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.
But when summer rolls around, we know humidity can be high in Michigan. You don’t want your home to feel damp and uncomfortable! A whole-home dehumidifier from Carrier reduces moisture in the air, helping to prevent mold, mildew, dust mites, and more.
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.
Carrier offers a variety of high-efficiency fan coil unit. A fan coil unit circulates the air in your home with variable-speed power. This helps provide humidity control in the summer for improved indoor air quality.
It also increases the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio rating on your air conditioner by up to 2 points for noticeable energy savings.
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.
