"Complete home comfort is about more than just temperature--it's also about maintaining a healthy home with indoor air quality.
Dusty, dirty homes at any temperature can mean discomfort. The air in today's tightly-sealed, well-insulated homes can become stale as the same indoor air is circulated and re-circulated. In fact, indoor air quality is among the Environmental Protection Agency's top 3 health concerns. The agency reports that with dust, pollen, pet dander, mold, skin flakes, chemical fumes, cigarette smoke, Radon gas and more, the air inside your home can be 2-5 times dirtier than the air outside.
Although we usually can't see them, air pollutants are all around us, already inside our homes, and waiting to come in from outside. From our yards to our kitchens, dangerous air pollutants threaten our home health and air quality. Plus, each season brings its own dangers, from mold in the fall and winter to pollens and high humidity in the spring and summer.
Fortunately, Carrier's wide range of air quality solutions, including humidifiers, ventilators, UV lamps and air cleaners, can together eliminate many of the pollutants threatening your home's health and improve indoor air quality."-- Carrier Website
Have you ever considered whether or not you need a whole house humidifier? A humidifier might be a great addition to your whole home comfort system if you:
You may notice that these issues become worse in the winter. Your heating system adds to these humidity-related problems because the process of heating the air removes moisture. A whole house humidifier can be installed on your heating system to add moisture to the warm air and deliver it through the duct system to your entire home, making you and your family more comfortable.
Even better, a whole house humidifier can actually save you money. A home with higher humidity will feel warmer, allowing you to be more comfortable at lower temperatures
An Electronic Air Cleaner is a device which removes contaminates from the air. These devices are commonly marketed as being beneficial to allergy sufferers and asthmatics, and at reducing or eliminating second-hand smoke.
When these unites are attached to a heating system, it is capable of cleaning the air throughout your entire house.
Just as homeowners wash before eating, UV lights offer another line of defense that helps "wash" the air before breathing. UV irradiation has been used by hospitals and restaurants for years to help disinfect and prevent the spread of germs.
Mold and bacteria can thrive in a variety of conditions and can be easily spread throughout a home by the heating and cooling system.
