Indoor Air Quality Greensburg, Latrobe, and Irwin, PA
Indoor Air Quality has a major impact on your family’s well being. You may rarely give it a thought, but your home is probably contains billions of unseen and unwanted guests. Contaminants such as dust mites, mold, mildew, pollen, pet dander, and skin flakes are a few of the contaminants found in the average home.
Trapped, Stale Air
With ever-increasing utility costs, consumers are searching for new and better ways to seal their homes against leaks and drafts. Unfortunately, as trapped air is circulated and re-circulated, this only worsens Indoor Air Quality. And since most Americans spend 90% of their time inside, Indoor Air Quality is a major concern.
Sources of Indoor Air Problems
In the technological age, we devote much of our time to computers, printers, copiers and video games, which generate heat. This heat causes circuitry, adhesives and the plastics found in most electronic devices to emit VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). And it’s not just electronics. VOC’s are directly related to everything from carpets, paint, furniture, cleaning products, pest control solutions, personal care products and your dog.
Poor IAQ is Unhealthy
You may only notice IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) when you’re uncomfortable. But poor IAQ has been proven to contribute to health problems such as headaches, eye irritation, nausea, allergies, fatigue and asthma. In order to breathe cleaner, fresher air, outdoor air ventilation is critical. Through ventilation, Donahue's Heating & Cooling can introduce air cleaners, dehumidifiers and UV treatment as air passes through the HVAC system.
Electronic air filters work with your HVAC equipment, cleaning pathogens and pollens from the air stream. Since less dust is circulating, you’ll enjoy a cleaner, healthier home. Proven to remove upwards of 80% of indoor virus-sized particles, Electronic air filters are a productive, easy and affordable way to clarify upwards of 80% of indoor bacterium-sized particles.
Our whole-house humidifier systems utilize the blower motor of your furnace to quietly humidify your home or business. Maintenance on our humidifier systems is a breeze, and only require an annual water panel change. If you use an Infinity® control, or Edge® thermostat, you can program alerts to remind you about water panel changes. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your whole-house humidifier system is working for your day and night!
Another wise investment is a UV Treatment System. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) eradicates potentially harmful microbes, bacteria, yeast, mold and even cooking odors. Installed within your HVAC duct systems, UV defends against spreading airborne viruses, reducing concentrations of airborne bio aerosols by 50% within 45 minutes. You’ll benefit from improved air throughout your entire home while boosting efficiency and lengthening the lifespan of your HVAC system.
