Indoor Air Quality Products Make It Easier to Breathe in Your Racine Home
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air quality has been identified as one of the top five environmental risks to public health. In fact, research shows that indoor air may be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. At Foreman-Slaasted Heating & Air Conditioning, we take your Racine, Kenosha, or Oak Creek home’s well-being seriously. That’s why we have a full line of indoor air quality products to help your family breathe easier.
- Whole-House Air Purification Systems: As part of your heating and cooling systems, these systems are designed to capture and kill airborne contaminants down to one micron in size, as well as reduce allergies and illness in your home. They are 40 times more effective than a standard furnace filter.
- Humidifiers: The ideal range of humidity is between 30 and 60 percent. Keep your home’s humidity levels in check and improve the comfort of your home. Humidifiers add moisture to the air, making your house feel warmer, eliminate statics, reduce dry skin and nosebleeds, and prevent warping wood.
- Dehumidifiers: Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from your indoor air. This removal of moisture has many benefits that could affect the health and comfort of your house. A dehumidifier enables you to feel cool and comfortable in your home, even with your thermostat set at a higher temperature.
- Ultraviolet (UV) Lights: UV lights are proven to help kill the growth of bacteria and mold on your air conditioner coil, as well as prevent their circulation throughout your home. Additionally, this system can enhance indoor airflow and keep units running efficiently.
- High- Efficient Filters and Filter Systems: At Foreman Heating, we can guide you through the replacement system for each kind of filter. If you have a 1-inch filter, we recommend a monthly replacement. However, if you have a 4-inch or high-efficiency filter, replace it once every six to 12 months. If you have pets, allergies, or smoke indoors, then we recommend replacing it sooner.
- Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs): An Energy Recovery Ventilator can balance the extremes in outdoor temperature and humidity, operating as both an exhaust fan and a fresh air supply fan. The result is ideal humidity and ventilation to protect your home and windows all year long.
- Zone Control: Adjust the temperature in various parts of your home with a zoning system. Each area of the house will have its own thermostat, enabling you to set the temperature for that area and reduce hot or cold spots. It helps you be more comfortable throughout your house while you save money on energy bills.
