Indoor Air Quality
For a complete approach to HVAC, Griffith Energy Services offers a wide range of products that help our customers “go green” and improve indoor air quality while saving money.
Most people don’t know that without an air purifier, indoor air quality in a weather-tight home can be a problem. 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.
Indoor Air Quality Products
Otherwise known as “air scrubbers,” these devices are 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 3 most effective IAQ products we typically recommend to homeowners.
Air Knight Purification Systems
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.
Along with the IPG feature is PX5 technology that uses UV light along with a 5-metal, quint-metallic core that purifies the air using pro-active air scrubbers.
The technologies used in the Air Knight reduces air pollutants, odors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), smoke, mold, bacteria, and viruses. The Air Knight IPG Air Purification system is the highest level of air purification for your home or business.
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 can be made by a smart phone or tablet wherever Internet service is available. Smart thermostats take care of saving energy and unnecessary wear and tear on your HVAC equipment.
Dry heat during the winter can cause discomfort for both commercial and residential environments. Respiratory and allergy issues are exacerbated by dry air. Static shocks from dry air can also impact sensitive computers or electronic devices. Using a humidifier inline with your heating system can relieve these symptoms and issues while providing balanced indoor humidity. Humidifiers can 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.
