RESIDENTIAL AIR CLEANERS. Indoor air pollution can be a tremendous health risk to your family. The EPA has shown that the air in your home can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside and since the homeowner spends 90% of their time inside during cold weather, improved air quality is a must! Bacteria, viruses, mold, dust, pet dander, tobacco/cigar smoke and dust mites can be dispersed into your air every day through your home comfort system and can lead to irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. They can also be dangerous to those with asthma and allergic conditions. With a good quality air cleaner, it is possible to remove 99% of those contaminants. American Mechanical offers several types of residential air cleaners to improve the indoor air quality in your home. The first type is the electronic air cleaner. These use an electrical charge to remove unwanted particulates. The second type are the mechanical air cleaners that use HEPA and other filters to capture harmful particles before they are dispersed inside of your home. The third type are whole house purification systems that will rid your home of airborne particulates, mold, bacteria and viruses.

WHOLE HOUSE HUMIDIFIERS. Whole-house humidifiers will provide just the right amount of moisture to keep your home comfortable and can also help keep harmful contaminants and airborne particles from multiplying and circulating throughout your home. Some of the benefits of having a whole house humidifier as part of your home comfort system include decreased dryness in the air which can aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms and lead to dry skin irritation. Other benefits are decreased static electricity in your carpets, damage to furniture and flooring and increased energy efficiency.

AIR DUCT CLEANING IS A MUST! Indoor air quality is the major concern when homeowners decide to have air duct cleaning performed. Your heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system takes air in and breathes it back out. Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as pet dander, dust and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on an average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants inside the duct work. While dirty duct work does not mean unhealthy air inside your home, school or workplace, they may be contributing to larger health issues or harboring contaminants that could cause serious problems with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or some environmental allergies. According to the U. S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling a home are wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and will shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system get dirty through normal use. When an HVAC system is clean, it does not have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost effectiveness to operate the system.
