How Does Poor Humidity Control Affect My Comfort?

The EPA estimates that the most comfortable humidity range for indoor spaces is between 30–55%. Levels of humidity above or below this will cause discomfort. Why is the right humidity level important? When humidity is too high, it makes everything feel sticky. This is because humidity holds heat. During the winter, you need humidity to help keep your indoors feeling warm, but during the summer, you want to feel cool and dry. Instead, excess humidity, combined with air conditioning will make you feel cool and clammy.

The opposite is true during the winter months: without enough humidity in the air, your heat won’t feel warm. At best, it will be fleeting, and may push you to increase the temperature on your thermostat, which will cost you money.

How Does Excess Dust Get into My Home?

There are a number of ways excess dust gets into and accumulates in your home: the people in your home create it with shedding skin, pets create it with dander and fur, and dirty ductwork can blow it directly into your living spaces with every cycle. The good news is that with the right services and products, you can significantly reduce the level of dust in your home. Air filters and purifiers can help rid your home of dust and dirt particles, as well as allergens like pet dander and dust mites. Professional duct cleaning removes the layer of dust and dirt that can build in your ductwork over time. Not sure which services and/or products you need? Our experts are here to help – just give us a call!

Do IAQ Products Become Part of My HVAC System?

Many people wonder how indoor air quality products integrate with their existing HVAC system and the answer is simple: seamlessly. These products are made to work in conjunction with your HVAC system so that operation is automatic and part of the overall system. This is why it’s so important to hire specialists for installation and service. Using someone or a company that is inept will not only deprive you of the benefits of your IAQ device, that person may also create problems with your system. Our experts have been helping customers improve their air quality for years, so you can rest assured that all of our work is done correctly the first time around.

Air Duct Cleaning

Your air ducts provide a direct delivery route to your indoor living spaces, but if your ducts are covered in a layer of dirt and dust, these contaminants will also be delivered directly into your home. Our professionals provide expert cleaning of your air ducts, ensuring that only air is delivered to your home.

Air Filtration Systems

Allergy sufferers can find tremendous relief from an air filtration system, so if you’ve been looking for help with allergens, give us a call. We install and replace filtration systems and repair and maintain existing ones for optimal use.

Air Purifier

Electronic air purifiers are highly effective for removing allergens and many types of biological contaminants. Want to know more about what an air purifier can do for your home, or have one that needs service? Give us a call today!

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide is a dangerous, odorless, sightless, tasteless gas. To help you protect your family from this serious vapor, call us for the installation or service of a carbon monoxide detector. We can also test your home for carbon monoxide if you have concerns it may be present in your home’s indoor air.


Excess humidity can lead to issues with mold and mildew development, increased allergic reactions and agitation for those with chronic lung disorders like asthma. Let us help you remove any excess moisture with a whole home dehumidifier.

Duct Sealing

Faulty ductwork can account for up to 30% of your home’s total air loss. One of the best ways to combat this kind of air loss is by scheduling a professional duct sealing appointment. Our experts are trained to deal with all kinds of ductwork issues, and we’ll make sure your duct sealing help you regain comfort and energy efficiency.

Duct Testing

Ductwork can become unbalanced fairly easily. Damage, corrosion, holes and cracks all contribute to poor performance. The best way to assess how your ducts are doing is with professional duct testing. Our DCSEU–certified energy experts will test your ducts and provide you with detailed results about the state of your home’s ductwork.

Energy Recovery Ventilators

If you’ve been looking for a way to provide your home with better ventilation during the months when your windows are closed, consider an energy recovery ventilator (ERV). This device not only improves ventilation, it uses the energy from your stale air to improve energy efficiency.

Heat Recovery Ventilators

Like an ERV, a HRV (heat recovery ventilator) uses the thermal energy from your used, heated air during the winter to pre–treat the incoming fresh air for your home. Our experts can help you install a new HRV to your heating system, or service your existing one for maximum effectiveness.


Is your home excessively dry? Then you’ll want to consider the installation of a whole home dehumidifier. Lack of needed moisture can damage your home’s wood products, including furniture and flooring. Let our experts help keep your indoor air balanced with our expert humidifier services!


Without the right levels of insulation throughout your home, you will be challenged with keeping your home both comfortable and energy efficient. Whether you are building a brand new home or need to insulate your 100 year–old home, we are the experts to call.

UV Air Purifier

Are you concerned about biological contaminants like viruses and bacteria? Have you had a problem with mold growth on your HVAC’s coils or in your ductwork? An ultraviolet (UV) air purifier can eradicate these organisms. Our experts can help install your UV lighting or replace UV lighting that has expired. Cal us today!
