It is a common misconception among homeowners to believe that pollution is really only a problem to worry about outdoors. This is, in fact, quite wrong. The level of pollutants floating around in the air within your very own home could really surprise you. So too could the number of different ways in which your Indoor Air Quality in North Seattle may suffer. There are good surprises to be had too, though, such as the fact that every Indoor Air Quality problem has an appropriate and effective solution. The skilled IAQ technicians on our staff are here to determine what you need to breathe better air indoors. Contact G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. today to learn more.
Dirt, dust, and other debris can infiltrate any home with relative ease. When these pollutants go airborne, they can aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms, as well as settle down and make your home appear rather dingy. In many instances, using an air filter of the appropriate efficiency level, as denoted by its MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value), is enough to resolve the problem. In other cases, electronic air cleaners, such as electronic precipitators, may be necessary.
Other problems require more specialized solutions. Viruses, mold, bacteria, and other biological pollutants cannot really be effectively filtered out of or removed from the air. Even if they are, they can continue to reproduce in their trapped state. By using small, safe amounts of ultraviolet radiation, UV germicidal lights and other UV air purifiers can destroy such pollutants. They can also render them incapable of reproduction, eliminating the threats that they pose.
