Breathe Easy Jacksonville with our Indoor Air Quality Services – Learn More Now
Are you concerned about indoor air quality? Studies show that air quality is a serious issue, but most Americans aren’t worried about the harmful substances they breathe. It’s well-known that indoor air is significantly more polluted than outside air. Additionally, the average person spends about 90 percent of each day indoors. Headaches, fatigue, and respiratory irritation are all symptoms of poor air quality. These issues are exacerbated for individuals with allergies, asthma or chemical sensitivities. Whether you suffer from allergies or simply want cleaner air, Mike Merritt Heating & Air Conditioning can help you achieve your goals.
Air Quality Tests
To improve your indoor air quality, we start by performing a complete assessment. We’ll measure carbon dioxide levels, check the humidity, and determine where indoor air pollution is coming from and how to remove it. We’ll also inspect your ducts and HVAC equipment for signs of damage and issues that compromise performance by letting irritants enter your home. In addition to blocking leaks and sealing ductwork, we can improve the air quality in your home by installing these products.
- Air cleaners and purifiers
- Whole-house air humidifiers
- Energy recovery ventilators
- Carbon monoxide alarms
- Germicidal UV sanitizers
Sources of Indoor Air Pollution
Humidity, air movement, and environmental factors all influence the quality of the air you breathe. Excess humidity encourages irritating mold and mildew growth. Adequate air movement or air flow dilute contaminants by pulling in fresh air. If you live near downtown Jacksonville, Florida, smog and pollutants from the city enter your home and stay there. Depending on your needs and current air quality issues, our NATE-certified experts will recommend one or more air cleaning systems.
Air cleaners quietly and effectively remove dust, pollen, pet dander, and airborne pollutants. Germicidal UV lamps that are placed inside your heating and cooling system are exceptionally effective at destroying germs and pathogens at the source. If your air change rate is low, ventilators can release stale air and bring in fresh air while using recovered energy to maintain a comfortable temperature. These systems are ideal for northern Florida and the Jacksonville area, where homes are tightly sealed for most of the year. If your home is too dry in the winter, whole-house air humidifiers can soothe your irritated airways.
