Indoor Air Quality
In addition to your indoor comfort, Griffith Energy Services cares about the quality of air that you breathe inside your home. Air-tight homes often don’t provide enough fresh air exchange to reduce or eliminate indoor air pollution. The air inside your home can be more polluted than the air outside, causing a host of health complications that include headache, fatigue, respiratory issues, and more.
The most common cause of poor indoor air quality is due to particulate matter. These particles are a mix of dust, dander, pollen, viruses, bacteria, and various other volatile organic compounds. By cleaning and disinfecting the air in your home or workplace, you 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 air conditioning and heating 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.
An Air Knight purification system removes airborne pollutants like virus particles, dust, bacteria, fungi, pollen, and pet dander. IAQ 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 2 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 the building or home 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 smart phone or tablet. Smart thermostats save energy, often from 10% to 20%, depending on your settings. Plus, they can alert you to change the filter when it’s needed, or that it’s time to schedule 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 to your heating system.
