INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Indoor Air Quality
The U.S. EPA has estimated that indoor levels of pollutants may be 2 to 5 times - and occasionally more than 100 times - higher than outdoor pollutant levels. Indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health. The problems they cause can be subtle and do not always produce easily recognized or immediate impacts on health. (source U.S. E.P.A.)

Whole House Humidifiers
Using the heating system during the winter months can dry out the air in the home leading to static electricity, sore throats, colder temperatures. Whole home humidifiers add moisture to the air, keeping static, sore throats, and dry skin at bay. By increasing moisture, humidifier use can also help protect the wood surfaces in your home. And because humidified air feels warmer, you can enjoy comfort at cooler temperature settings, to help save energy and money over the winter. This maintenance free unit is professionally installed to your existing forced air furnace. A whole house humidifier is professionally installed into your existing furnace and refills automatically using your water supply system to give you maintenance free comfortable moist air all winter long.
Designed to easily integrate with your HVAC system, a whole house dehumidifier offers soothing relief from high humidity and cooling costs. By drawing excess moisture from indoor air, it lets you feel comfortable without over cooling your home while improving indoor air quality and helping to preserve wood furnishings. A whole house dehumidifier helps create healthier air by reducing dust mites and mold that thrive in humid environments. Installed into your air conditioning system this dehumidifier removes excess moisture from your air and drains automatically into your sewer system.
New homes and some older homes can be tightly built to save energy, but this can often times have a negative impact on the home without proper ventilation. An airtight home, provides no way to refresh the indoor environment. Bryant ventilators bring prefiltered outdoor air into your home, replacing the stale, polluted air that gets trapped in today's tightly-constructed homes. It's like opening a window without losing indoor comfort or wasting your energy dollars. Use it year round. Its special, enthalpic transfer media core will help transfer indoor heating or cooling energy to the incoming air so you can have fresh air even on extreme days. It's a far better fresh solution than opening a window and letting your energy dollars fly out.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Its very important to have a carbon monoxide detector in your home and your furnace inspected every year.
Dubbed the "silent killer," carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, toxic gas that is undetectable by humans. Carbon monoxide detectors monitor CO levels in your home and alert you when the gas reaches dangerous levels to protect you from this lethal threat. CO is a gas that can build up to dangerous concentrations indoors when fuel- burning devices such as fireplaces, furnaces and hot water heaters are not properly vented, operated, or maintained. It is estimated that unintentional CO exposure accounts for an estimated 500 deaths in the United States each year. Call us today to find out more
Duct Repair, Sealing and Insulating
Your air ducts are one of the most important systems in your home, and if the ducts are poorly sealed or not insulated they are likely contributing to higher energy bills. Your home's duct system is a branching network of tubes in the ceilings, floors, and walls; they carry the conditioned air from your home's furnace and central air conditioner to each room.
Ducts are made of sheet metal, fiberglass, and sometimes a hard cardboard material in older homes. Ducts that leak heated or cooled air into non living spaces can add hundreds or thousands of dollars a year to your heating and cooling bills. Insulating ducts in unconditioned spaces is usually very cost-effective. The sealing of your ducts to prevent leaks is even more important if the ducts are located in an unconditioned area such as an vented crawlspace or attic.
