Improve Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality with Advanced Solutions from Legacy Heating

The quality of the air inside your Calgary or Edmonton home has a direct impact on your family’s health, comfort, and well-being. With people spending more time indoors than ever before, focusing on improving indoor air quality (IAQ) is becoming increasingly important.\

Dust, allergens, bacteria, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be present in your indoor air, causing respiratory issues, aggravated allergies, and diminished comfort. As a responsible homeowner, it’s essential to invest in advanced IAQ solutions to ensure a healthy and comfortable living environment.

In this guide, we will discuss some of the most effective solutions for improving your home’s indoor air quality, including air purifiers, ultraviolet (UV) lights, and energy recovery ventilators (ERVs). With years of experience and a genuine passion for safeguarding our clients’ health and comfort, our team at Legacy Heating & Cooling is dedicated to helping you find the perfect IAQ solutions for your Calgary or Edmonton home.

Air Purifiers: Comprehensive Filtration for a Cleaner Environment

Air purifiers are designed to capture airborne particles and pollutants, significantly improving the air quality inside your home. These devices typically incorporate HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters, which can trap up to 99.97% of particles, including dust, pollen, mold spores, and pet dander. Air purifiers can be installed separately from your home’s HVAC system or integrated directly into the system to maximize their effectiveness.

When selecting an air purifier, consider factors such as CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate), which measures the device’s ability to filter various particle sizes effectively. Also, consider the room size or overall area you want the purifier to cover, as different models are designed for various room sizes.

Ultraviolet (UV) Lights: Disinfect Your Air and Protect Your Health

Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a technology that utilizes short-wavelength UV-C light to inactivate airborne microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and mold spores. When integrated with your HVAC system, UV lights effectively disinfect the air passing through the ductwork, making your home’s indoor air cleaner and safer to breathe.

It’s important to choose a UV light system that is both efficient and properly installed for maximum performance. Partnering with an experienced HVAC professional ensures your UV light system is installed correctly, providing you with added peace of mind.

Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs): Efficient Fresh Air Exchange

Energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) are advanced ventilation systems that replace stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air while simultaneously transferring heat and maintaining your home’s desired temperature. ERVs are especially beneficial during winter months when there is limited natural ventilation in homes, ensuring a constant supply of fresh air without significantly impacting your heating bills.

ERVs can be retrofit into existing HVAC systems or installed during new HVAC installations, depending on your needs and your home’s structure. An expert HVAC professional can help you determine the best ERV option for your home.

Proper HVAC Maintenance: An Integral Part of Indoor Air Quality

A well-maintained HVAC system is essential for optimum indoor air quality. Regularly changing air filters and scheduling routine HVAC maintenance helps to keep your system functioning efficiently, ensuring cleaner air throughout your home. Additionally, this regular TLC helps prolong the life of your system and minimize costly repairs.

Choosing the Right Technologies for Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality Needs

When determining the best IAQ solutions for your home, consider the following:

1. Assess your needs: Evaluate your family’s health, allergy symptoms, and comfort, as well as any persistent odors or signs of mold to gauge your home’s current air quality.

2. Consult with professionals: Partner with an experienced HVAC service provider to discuss your concerns and learn about the most suitable IAQ technologies for your home.

3. Monitor your indoor air quality: Equip your home with indoor air quality monitors that measure factors such as humidity, temperature, and contaminant levels, helping you stay informed and make necessary adjustments as needed.
