Get Fresh, Clean Air With Air Cleaners and Exchangers
To help increase energy efficiency, modern homes are built more airtightly than ever. That’s great for maintaining temperatures—but not good when it means dust, dirt, and other contaminants are trapped inside your house. Thankfully, RJ Heating and Air Conditioning has solutions that can help, such as air cleaners and exchangers.
How Do Air Cleaners and Exchangers Work?
Did you know your indoor air could be several times more polluted than outdoor air? That’s because excess humidity, dust, and other contaminants circulate within your home—something changing your air filter or opening windows and doors can’t get rid of on their own.
Enter air cleaners and exchangers. Using a fan and vent system within your existing ductwork, these units swap stale indoor air for a fresh outdoor supply. In winter, heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) can also heat that fresh air to ensure a steady stream of warm air. Energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) account for both heat and moisture, making them perfect for year-round usage.
These units also use high-quality HEPA filters, which capture more than 99 percent of allergens and other particles that affect air quality.
How Do These Systems Impact Air Quality?
Air cleaners and exchangers help remove harmful particles from your indoor air, including germs, allergens, and dust particles. Overall, these units help:
- Reduce asthma attacks and allergies
- Remove pet odor, allergens, and other air-circulating particles
- Eliminate tobacco smoke and other smells
- Control humidity
