Air Purification – Air Cleaner – UV Lights – Humidifiers
At Hely Heating and Air Conditioning we offer a number of solutions to keep the air in your St. Louis home clean.
Your St. Louis home’s heating and cooling system is doing more than maintaining a comfortable indoor climate for you and your family. It is continually re-circulating air in a virtually closed environment, which could potentially be transferring dust, bacteria, and other micro-organisms that are harmful to breathe in. Thankfully, we have a number of solutions that will help to guarantee that every breath your family takes is a healthy one.
The Downside of an Energy Efficient Home
For years now, home owners have been going to great lengths to ensure that their home is energy efficient. In an attempt to cut energy costs, all leaks and possible entry points to outside air have been sealed. While this is a good strategy for keeping your conditioned air inside your home, it does create an environment of stale air as well. Filters on the HVAC system are not enough to prevent bacteria and other micro-organisms from making their way into your breathable air, your home needs specific HVAC equipment to accomplish this.
Whole House Air Purifiers
One method of air purification for your St. Louis home is a whole house air purifier. These are installed as a part of your entire HVAC system, but do not interfere with its function. The air coming from the air conditioner or furnace is first passed through the air purifier, which removes all irritants and harmful contaminants before allowing the air to pass through to the rest of your home.
We will help you choose from two different types of whole house air purifiers if you determine that this is an important addition to your HVAC system:
Whole House Media Air Cleaner – This type of air purifier relies on fabric filters to capture particles as they are suspended in the air. Up to 97% of pollen, dust, and other larger particles can be captured before making their way into your breathing air depending on the make and model you choose.
Whole House Electronic Air Cleaner – More advanced, the electronic air purifier system uses an electric charge inside of the unit to capture bacteria, pet dander, viruses, and other contaminants, somewhat like a magnet. Depending on the make and model, this system can be effective for removing up to 99% of contaminants and has the added benefit of not interfering with the flow of air into your home.
HVAC UV Light Systems
Another method of cleaning the air inside of your St. Louis home is with the installation of UV lights spanning the supply ducts that feed into the house. At Hely Heating & Air we have extensive knowledge of this technology and can help you determine if it is the right option for cleaning the air inside of your St. Louis home. UV lights are known to be effective in killing bacteria, viruses, and even molds, and can actually help reduce the risk of allergies, colds, and other illnesses for you and the members of your family.
Whole House Humidifiers for Your St Louis Home
The humidity inside of your house is important to the health of your family. Too much moisture promotes the growth of mold and fungi, while dry air is irritating to the lungs and is a trigger for asthmatic attacks. Our expert installers can easily add a whole house humidifier to your existing heating and cooling system to help you maintain the right indoor climate all year round.
Not only does a whole house humidifier keep the moisture levels in your air at a healthy level, they help curb your energy costs. When indoor air is at the ideal humidity level, it feels warmer, allowing you to keep the thermostat set a little lower in the winter. Our team can even enable you have full control over the whole house humidifier by connecting it to your programmable thermostat. This lets you raise or lower the indoor humidity level automatically if you are feeling uncomfortable.
