Residential Indoor Air Quality Systems
Indoor Air Quality Improvement:
Frequent cleaning, including vacuuming and dusting, will help remove surface dust. Professional Duct Cleaning will remove dust, mold, and debris from your ductwork. Air purification systems with ultraviolet light can be added to your home’s heating and cooling equipment to help reduce and destroy contaminants by bathing your air in high-intensity UV. Too much humidity or too little can be equally problematic. Keeping humidity within optimal levels will inhibit the growth of bacteria, viruses, fungi and help reduce respiratory infections and allergies. Depending on your needs we offer both humidifiers and dehumidifiers.
Poor ventilation in your home can increase indoor air pollution. Mechanical ventilation systems such as Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRV) or Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) are air balancing systems that bring in and filter the outdoor air while removing stale indoor air. These systems also capture the energy and use it to heat or cool the incoming air for increased energy-efficiency and comfort.
Proper filtration is key to improving your indoor air quality. Air Cleaners are installed as part of your home's central heating and cooling system. Every time your system runs dust, pollen, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria and viruses (and more) are being removed from your air - leaving you with air that is as clean as possible. The Air Cleaners available today remove up to 97.5% of household dust and 99.9% of allergy-causing pollen and spores. There are models available that use ‘capture and kill’ technology that is unforgiving when it comes to airborne pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and mold.
Whole House Temperature Zoning
You have individual light switches controlling each room of your house. The kitchen sink is operated separately from the sink in your bathroom. Your home was designed this way because it’s the most efficient way to use utilities. Why should your home temperature system be any different?
Southport Home Services can zone your HVAC system so you don’t waste energy heating or cooling your whole house when you just needed to change the temperature in one room. Whole house temperature zoning from Southport Home Services helps you save money, energy, and the environment.
