The average person breathes 3,400 gallons of air each day. Unfortunately, air isn’t always all you’re inhaling. Mold spores, pollen, bacteria, dust and other particles exist in virtually all indoor air quality. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside a home can be 2-5 times more polluted than air outside. In addition, to conserve energy, homes are built increasingly airtight. This traps pollutants that can be harmful to you and your family and can make your home less comfortable. That is why it is critical to have an air cleaning, UV light, and/or humidification system for your home. This is why it’s so important to maintain your indoor air quality in Poughkeepsie, NY.Book Online Book Online

Humidifiers work in tandem with your heating system to deliver desired humidity levels throughout your home. Maintaining proper humidity levels in your home is essential to maintaining indoor comfort during the winter months. Moderate humidity levels make you feel warmer at lower temperatures, which means you can set your thermostat lower without sacrificing comfort.
Depending on the size of your home, we offer a variety of humidifiers to deliver the right amount of moisture into the air. Sizing of humidifiers is measured in Gallons Per Day (GPD), and we offer models from 12 GPD to 18 GPD.
Ultra Violet Lights
Ultraviolet light kills bacteria and mold growing on your indoor coil before they are circulated throughout your home. UV lamps are installed near your existing indoor coil and work diligently to rid your home of the bacteria, viruses, mold and germs that impact your home’s health. We install 1 or 2 lights per indoor coil, depending on the size of the coil.
Too much humidity harms your immediate environment. Estimates suggest that the average family can produce over 11 liters of excess moisture every single day. While this affects the house in obvious ways, like mold, damp patches and spoiled surfaces, it also affects people’s health in more important ways, aggravating conditions like asthma, arthritis and rheumatism.
Dehumidifiers work in tandem with your heating and cooling system to maintain desired humidity levels throughout your home. Maintaining proper humidity levels in your home is essential to maintaining indoor comfort during the summer months. Lower humidity levels make you feel cooler at warmer temperatures, which means you can set your thermostat higher without sacrificing comfort.
Depending on the size of your home, we offer a variety of dehumidifiers to remove the right amount of moisture from the air.
Zoning can provide optimum comfort with increased energy savings in your home by dividing a home into areas with similar heating and cooling needs and independently controlling the temperature in each area. Much like multiple light switches that independently control lighting in different rooms, with zoning, multiple zone thermostats or sensors control temperature in different areas of the home. Contact us for an in-home evaluation and estimate.
Thermostats are used to turn on heating or cooling systems to bring the home to a set temperature. In addition to basic temperature control, programmable thermostats can be used to manage the indoor environment of your home at different times of the day or week. This type of control can have a dramatic impact on the overall energy use of your home. We carry a complete line of thermostats. Let us help you choose the one that best matches your lifestyle.
Air cleaners effectively remove bacteria, pollen, animal dander and other pollutants as small as 0.01 microns. That’s 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin. The higher the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV), the more efficiently the cleaner removes particles. We offer air cleaners that range from MERV 10 to MERV 15 to meet your needs. For those families that have severe allergies, we also offer Whole House High Efficiency Particulate Arresting (HEPA) filtration systems.
Air Duct Sealing
In homes with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.
A duct system that is well-designed and properly sealed can make your home more comfortable, energy efficient, and safer. Contact us for a quote to seal the ducts in your home and improve the performance of your heating and cooling systems.
