Indoor Air Quality
Regulating your home’s temperature is the only thing that matters to maximizing indoor comfort for your loved ones. You also need to focus on cleaning and ventilating the air inside your house. Griffith Energy Services cares about the quality of the air you breathe while at home. Air-tight properties often don’t provide enough fresh air exchange to reduce or eliminate indoor air pollution. The air inside your house can be more polluted than the air outside, causing health effects like headaches, fatigue, respiratory issues and more.
The most common cause of poor indoor air quality is particulate matter. These particles are a mix of dust, dander, pollen, viruses, bacteria and volatile organic compounds. By cleaning and disinfecting the air in your home or workplace, you’ll create a healthier environment for you, your family and your employees. Our indoor air quality products will provide you with the cleanest air possible.
Air Purifiers and Air Scrubbers
With weather-tight homes, indoor air can actually be as much as 5 to 10 times more polluted than what’s outside. Smoke, pet dander and pollen are just the start of the problem. Bacteria and viruses also become trapped. An electronic air purifier that filters the air every time your HVAC system cycles provides relief for allergy sufferers and protects everyone from harmful contaminants.
Air Knight Purification System
The latest in air purification is the Air Knight® IPG Air Purification system. This system uses bi-polar ionization (both positive and negative ion technology) that encourages particulates in the air to stick together. These larger particles make it easier for your air filter system to be more effective. It also uses UV light and air scrubbers to purify the air. The Air Knight purification system is a cutting-edge choice that can help you create a healthier home. Griffith Energy Services is happy to carry and install this IAQ solution for our customers.
An Air Knight purification system removes airborne pollutants like virus particles, dust, bacteria, microbes, pollen and pet dander. Indoor air quality products like the Air Knight system trap, remove or eradicate:
- Up to 80% of airborne viruses and other virus-sized particles.
- 99% airborne molds, spores, pollens and other pollen-sized particles.
- 98% of airborne bacteria and other bacteria-sized particles.
- 94% of asthma-inducing respiratory dust.
- 80% of airborne tobacco smoke and particles the size of tobacco smoke.
The Air Knight IPG Air Purification system is the highest level of air purification for your home or business.
Another type of air purifier is known as an “air scrubber.” These devices are also installed directly into your HVAC system. They aren’t designed just to treat air quality issues — they’re engineered to eradicate particles, gasses and chemicals completely. The following are the two most effective IAQ products we typically recommend to homeowners:
activTek Induct 2000 – Ozone Free
This high-quality air scrubber is notable for its ActivePure® tech, which minimizes smoke and odors and helps to remove surface contamination. These systems include a UV bulb monitoring indicator and they cover up to 2000-square-foot spaces.
Aprilaire Model 5000 Air Purifier
According to Aprilaire, this model is the “only air purifier that captures more than 98 percent of dirty indoor air.” Among its many features, it can target particles up to a single micron in size and it requires very little cleaning or maintenance. Independent lab studies also show that Aprilaire Model 5000 is among the top air scrubbers when in terms of IAQ performance.
Maintaining a comfortable temperature while home and raising the temperature while away can be a challenge. Sometimes we forget to set the thermostat before everyone leaves and that drives up energy costs unnecessarily by heating or cooling an empty space. Smart thermostats are the answer. With their easy-to-read color screen, programming a smart thermostat is a breeze. If your schedule changes, or you’re out of town and forgot to re-set the thermostat, changes are easily made using a smartphone or tablet. Smart thermostats save energy and money. Plus, they can alert you to change the filter when needed or to schedule HVAC maintenance.
Dry heat during the winter can cause discomfort for both commercial and residential environments. Respiratory and allergy issues are often exacerbated by dry air. Static shocks from dry air can also impact sensitive computers or electronic devices. Using a humidifier installed with your heating system can relieve these symptoms and issues while providing balanced indoor humidity. Humidifiers also save on energy costs because moist air is able to hold the heat better. Contact us for additional information about adding a humidifier.
Duct Cleaning Services
Dirty ducts can have a profound and often overlooked impact on indoor air quality. Over time, dust, allergens and even microbial growth can accumulate within HVAC ducts, circulating harmful particles throughout your home or workplace. Breathing in this contaminated air can lead to respiratory issues, allergies and worsened overall health. Regularly scheduled duct cleaning services are essential to mitigate these risks. By removing the buildup of pollutants, clean ducts ensure the air you breathe is fresh and free from harmful particles. This not only promotes a healthier living environment but also enhances the efficiency of your HVAC system, reducing energy costs. Prioritizing duct cleaning is an investment in both your well-being and the longevity of your property’s infrastructure. Griffith Energy Services to happy to offer residential and commercial duct cleaning services in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Dryer Vent Cleaning Services
Dirty dryer vents can significantly impact indoor air quality and pose fire hazards. Lint and debris accumulate in dryer vents over time, restricting airflow and causing the appliance to work harder, leading to increased energy consumption. More critically, these clogged vents can release harmful particles and allergens into the indoor environment. Inadequate ventilation also raises the risk of fires due to lint buildup, posing a serious safety hazard. Scheduling regular dryer vent cleaning services is crucial to maintain healthy indoor air quality, reduce energy costs and mitigate fire risks. It’s a simple yet vital step to ensure both safety and comfort in your home or business. Griffith Energy Services performs comprehensive dryer vent cleanings in Mid-Atlantic homes.
