Effective Solutions For Indoor Air Pollution And Low Humidity
Indoor air quality problems can take a toll on your family's comfort and health. Dust, particulates, household chemicals and allergens can accumulate. This makes the air in your home dirtier than the air in a large, crowded city, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Some homes also have problems with insufficient humidity. During the winter, dry indoor air makes people more susceptible to winter colds and the flu, and causes damage to your home's wood floors, frames and furnishings. Dry air also makes our bodies feel cooler - causing you to raise the thermostat, and therefore use more energy. By maintaining the proper level of humidity indoors, you can have a healthier, safer and more comfortable home...while lowering your energy bills!
North Shore Fuel has answers. We can test your air quality, and if there is a problem we can install a whole-house filtration system that works with your heating and/or cooling system to remove nearly all airborne pollutants. Many systems employ the same technology used by hospitals and high-tech factories to purify their air. Filter systems can be supplemented with UV lights that kill airborne mold and bacteria.
We also install whole-house humidifiers that add moisture to the air as it is distributed by a warm-air heating system. Whole-house humidification can balance your air to improve comfort and health and prevent damage to wood.
