Proven Solutions for Your Portland or Bend Home
There are many simple and effective air quality solutions available on the market today. Depending on our findings, we may recommend either one or a combination of the air quality systems we offer.
Here are some of the systems we use to improve indoor air quality:
- Air Filters – Media filters trap potential airborne contaminants as small as .3 microns before they circulate through your home.
- Air Purifier – Air Purifiers use a combination of electrostatic technology and traditional air ﬁlter to remove up to 99% of airborne particles* as small as 0.1 micron.
- UV Lights – Ultraviolet light exposure inhibits the growth of contaminants at their source, minimizing dust and dirt accumulation on coils, reducing airborne particles, and improving system efficiency.
- Fresh Air Ventilation System – Designed to minimize energy loss while bringing fresh air into your home and exiting stale air year-round without overworking your system.
- Humidifiers – Distribute moisture throughout your home to help with irritated sinuses, itchy skin, static electricity, and even cracked woodwork, wallpaper, or paint. The humidifier will help you save money on your energy bills since humidified air feels warmer than dry air—so your thermostat can be set at a lower temperature.
- Dehumidifiers – Because too much humidity in the home can also cause significant health, furniture, and foundation issues, we offer quality dehumidifiers to help take out some of the moisture from your indoor air. These systems are can also help with your comfort and energy costs, especially in the summer, as lower humidity means cooler air.
We also offer air balancing testing to further improve your home comfort. This process allows you to determine the amount of airflow from your heating and air conditioning, making sure you have enough to have even temperatures throughout your home.
If you and your family are always experiencing hot and cold spots, our air balancing test can help us pinpoint problem areas and adjust your HVAC system accordingly.
What are Signs of Bad Indoor Air Quality?
Bad indoor air quality can have a range of adverse effects on your health and well-being.
Some common signs and symptoms of poor indoor air quality include:
- Frequent coughing, sneezing, or a stuffy or runny nose.
- Exacerbation of asthma symptoms.
- Increased incidence of respiratory infections.
- Worsening of allergy symptoms, such as itchy eyes, throat, or skin.
- Increased sensitivity to allergens like pollen or pet dander.
Headaches and Fatigue: Frequent headaches or feelings of fatigue without an apparent cause.
Eye, Throat, and Skin Irritation:
- Red, itchy, or watery eyes.
- Sore or dry throat.
- Skin rashes or irritation.
Odors: Unpleasant or musty odors in your home.
Mold Growth: Visible mold growth on walls, ceilings, or other surfaces.
- High humidity levels leading to a damp feeling in the air.
- Condensation on windows or walls.
Stale Air: A persistent feeling of stuffiness or a lack of fresh air.
Excessive Dust: More dust accumulation than usual, indicating poor air filtration.
Carbon Monoxide (CO) Symptoms: Symptoms like dizziness, nausea, or confusion may indicate a carbon monoxide leak. Install CO detectors to alert you to this danger.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): Symptoms like headaches, nausea, or eye and throat irritation can result from exposure to VOCs found in some cleaning products, paints, and furniture.
Radon Exposure: Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that can seep into homes from the ground. It's a leading cause of lung cancer. Testing for radon is crucial in areas with a known radon problem.
Poor Ventilation: A lack of adequate airflow, which can result in a buildup of indoor pollutants.
If you experience several of these symptoms or notice signs like mold growth or strange odors, it's essential to take action to improve your indoor air quality.
This may involve improving ventilation, using air purifiers, reducing the use of VOC-containing products, and addressing any potential sources of pollution, such as leaks, humidity, or carbon monoxide.
In some cases, consulting with a professional indoor air quality specialist may be necessary to identify and rectify the issue.
Why Should You Use Carbon Monoxide Alarms?
As part of our mission to improve indoor air quality and keep customers safe, we also offer carbon monoxide alarms.
These alarms use sophisticated electronics and unmatched sensor technology to detect and record the levels of CO circulating in your indoor air. 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.
