Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is something we talk a lot about in the world of HVAC. While we are here to keep the temperatures great all year long, we also are concerned with the quality of the air in your home.
Chapman offers a variety of products that can boost your homes indoor air quality! These products are add-on features that generally work with the existing heating and air conditioning systems. Some of these products may be familiar to you (like air filters – those pesky things you have to remember to change) and some might not be so familiar.
There are many types, sizes, and qualities of air filters. The added benefits of the appropriate air filtration system for your family can include removing allergens and air particles from your home. Some air filters can even remove household odors and chemical vapors as well. Depending on your air filter, it may need changed every 1, 3, 6, or even last as long as 12 months! Staying on top of filter changes is also one of the many great benefits of the Chapman Family Comfort Club! Factors that lead to the frequency of filter change include the size and quality of your filter, number and kind of pets in the home, construction in the area, AND the homeowner’s propensity for allergies (gesundheit!).
If you want to take it one step farther, ultra violet lights could really benefit you! Ultra violet (or UV) lights are installed directly in your ductwork to help kill mold, bacteria, yeast, and even viruses that exist in your home’s air. The constant recirculation of air in our homes is what keeps us comfortable, but can also lead to dirty air. Installing a UV light, and changing it out yearly, can help ensure that the air in your home is as clean as can be.
If you have any questions about filters, UV lights, or other ways to make sure your indoor air quality is as high as your comfort levels, check out this page, or give us a call!
