Indoor Air Quality
Home indoor air quality (IAQ) has been a hot topic in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry for the past few years. With the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issuing statistics on the damaging health risks involved with poor indoor air quality, everyone here in Texas is knowledgeable and working to change or prevent it.
At KCA SERVICES, we offer the following effective systems and recommendations to increase your home’s indoor air quality:
Utilize media air cleaners.
These air cleaners are whole-home air cleaners that work in conjunction with your home’s heating and cooling system. The media air cleaner filters are usually four to five inches thick, in contrast to the normal one inch filters, removing particles from your home’s airflow circulating everywhere in your home. We integrate the media filter firmly inside your HVAC system, forcing all air to pass through it. You need to change this filter every three months. The media air cleaner blocks more pollutants, dust, allergens, mold spores, and debris than standard filters and brings fresher and cleaner air to your home, thereby improving your indoor air quality.
Utilize UV lights.
The UVPhotoMAX™ photocatalytic air purifier is the highest-quality UV-light air purifier for your home, offering another level of home air cleaning. We can install it in any HVAC system for whole-house effectiveness. It offers 100 percent silent operation without fans or motors, so you will never hear it while it’s purifying the air you breathe. It kills airborne bacteria, viruses, allergens, and mold, as well as decomposes volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as they flow through your home’s ductwork.
Clean and check your home’s air ducts.
Scheduling our air duct professionals to clean your home’s air ducts goes a long way in improving your indoor air quality. With your ducts running everywhere in your home—through your home’s walls, ceilings, and floors—they can collect an assortment of dirt, dust, particles, bacteria, mites, pet hair, and mold spores that are carried along with your air. This collection stays trapped in your ducts and then travels along with the airflow, straight to your lungs. Poor indoor air quality can cause a host of health issues such as allergies, chronic illnesses, and even cancer and heart issues. Having our air duct experts clean your Boerne or San Antonio, Texas, home’s air ducts increases the level of your indoor air quality, protecting you and your home.
