Which Air Quality Product is Right For You?
Ventilation is the intentional introduction of outdoor air into a space and is mainly used to control indoor air quality by diluting and displacing indoor pollutants; it can also be used for purposes of thermal comfort or dehumidification. The intentional introduction of outdoor air can be categorized as either mechanical ventilation, or natural ventilation. Mechanical ventilation uses fans to drive the flow of outdoor air into a building. Many mechanically ventilated buildings use a combination of both, with the ventilation being integrated into the air conditioning system. The choice of Healthy Climate ventilators available through AC Sales can assist you with the thermal comfort you need.
Natural ventilation is the intentional passive flow of outdoor air into a building through planned openings (such as louvers, doors, and windows). Natural ventilation does not require mechanical systems to move outdoor air. Mixed mode ventilation systems use both mechanical and natural processes. The mechanical and natural components may be used in conjunction with each other or separately at different times of day or season of the year.
Dehumidified air feels cooler, so you can set your thermostat at a higher temperature and still feel comfortable. In fact, for every two degrees you raise the temperature during the summer, you can save between 5% and 7% on your cooling bill. That’s energy savings you can feel good about. When your air is properly dehumidified, your home just feels better, floor to ceiling. A home dehumidifier from AC Sales can give you that feeling every day. It can also help make your air healthier by reducing the number of indoor allergens and pollutants, and can help you save energy throughout the summer by keeping your air comfortable at slightly warmer temperatures.
An air purifier or air cleaner is a device which removes contaminants from the air in a room to improve indoor air quality. Healthy Climate® air purification and filtration systems from AC Sales are designed to work with your central heating and cooling system. They improve the air throughout your entire home—not just in individual rooms—without producing ozone, a known lung irritant. The air purification systems available through AC Sales are the only indoor air quality systems to combat all three classes of contaminants: allergy-aggravating particles such as dust, pollen and pet dander; mold and germs that grow and reproduce in damp places, such as basements, attics, and crawlspaces; and odors and chemical vapors from paints, cleaning supplies and additives used in carpeting and furniture.
