Call Heartland for an Indoor Air Quality Assessment, and we can work together to find the best way to improve indoor air quality in your home.
Dehumidifiers & Humidifiers
The most often overlooked aspect of home climate comfort is the humidity level. Without a dehumidifier, the humidity inside your home can make it feel like you’re living in the jungle during the summer. During the winter super dry air can cause headaches, nosebleeds, and other not-so-fun conditions for your family. Humidity levels can affect the indoor air quality in your home. Certain molds and mildew love humid environments to grow in, while viruses and bacteria spread easier in the dry winter air. These indoor air pollutants can cause issues for you and your family members. If your home suffers from improper humidity levels we can help find the perfect equipment option for you.
Carrier® air purifiers are state-of-the-art systems that trap and kill bacteria, viruses, mold spores, allergens, and other pollutants in the conditioned air—and keep them out of the air your family breathes. Carrier's air purification technology is unforgiving when it comes to airborne pathogens, circulating and re-purifying the air in your home up to 8 times an hour.
RGF Environmental offers a full line of products designed to clean the air in your home. Their top product, the REME Halo, utilizes both an active and passive effect to reduce airborne particulates, destroy pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi/mold, and allergens, as well as reduce lingering odors. Install once and improve indoor air quality in your home, maintenance-free, for years to come.
A staple in any climate-controlled home, the air filter is your first line of defense against pollutants and excessive dust. Traditional filters act as a screen, catching particles as they pass through your ducts before they are released back into the air of your home. Electrostatic filters charge the unwanted particles in the air, so when they come close to the filter, which has an opposite charge, they are attracted like magnets. This provides your system with an even more effective means of trapping indoor air pollutants and preventing them from continuing to circulate throughout your home.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms
A modern danger in today’s homes is carbon monoxide (CO). Colorless, tasteless, and odorless, CO is pretty much undetectable by humans without purpose-built gear. We can provide that gear to help protect your family. Using a carbon monoxide alarm, you can monitor the current CO level in your home on a large, easy-to-read digital display. When dangerous levels of CO are present, a loud, audible alarm alerts you and your family automatically.
Modern homes are built much more efficiently than older ones. For the most part, this is a good thing – there is much less temperature loss, meaning lower energy bills. Sometimes the home can end up being too “tight” though. The best solution to getting fresh air into your house would be to open all of your windows, but that's not a very economical ideal in extreme temperatures. Having outdoor air coming indoors is what helps cycle out indoor air pollutants from your home.
Ventilators regulate the amount of outdoor air that comes into your home to improve air quality. A ventilator controls the amount of air coming into your home using a motorized “door” that only opens when your systems need it. This improves the air quality in your home by carrying indoor air pollutants out and cycling fresh air in.
Ultraviolet Germicidal Lamps
Traditional filters will capture most of the indoor pollutants in your air, but some dangers are too small for them to handle. Ultraviolet germicidal lamps actively destroy many indoor air pollutants that may find their way into your climate system. Eliminating these indoor pollutants does more than help improve your air quality, it increases your system performance as well.
Global Plasma Solution
The most recent addition to our indoor air quality products, Global Plasma Solutions’ GPS-2400 uses a plasma system to aid your filtration system in capturing dust, dander, and other particulates in the air. The GPS-2400’s bi-polar ionization causes fine particles in the air to cluster together, capturing airborne indoor air pollution particulates and contaminants while increasing the effectiveness of your current filtration system. With a simple installation and no replacement or maintenance parts required, it’s a highly effective long-term solution.
