Air Cleaners, Humidifiers, and Ventilators

Purchasing an Electronic Air Cleaner

Air cleaners effectively remove bacteria, pollen, animal dander and other pollutants as small as 0.01 microns. That’s 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin. The higher the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV), the more efficiently the cleaner removes particles. We offer air cleaners that range from MERV 10 to MERV 15 to meet your needs.  For those families that have severe allergies, we also offer Whole House High Efficiency Particulate Arresting (HEPA) filtration systems.

Choosing a Humidifier for Your Home

Humidifiers work in tandem with your heating system to deliver desired humidity levels throughout your home. Maintaining proper humidity levels in your home is essential to maintaining indoor comfort during the winter months. Moderate humidity levels make you feel warmer at lower temperatures, which means you can set your thermostat lower without sacrificing comfort.

Depending on the size of your home, we offer a variety of humidifiers to deliver the right amount of moisture into the air. Sizing of humidifiers is measured in Gallons Per Day (GPD), and we offer models from 12 GPD to 18 GPD.

Installing a Ventilator in Your Home

Ventilators bring fresh air into your home without losing heating or cooling energy. Their unique energy exchange system transfers the heating or cooling energy from the stale air being exhausted from your home to the fresh air the ventilator brings into your home.

If your family suffers from allergies, ventilators are a much better alternative for introducing fresh air into your home versus opening your windows. They also do a great job of reducing cooking and pet odors, smoke and other pollutants out of your home.

Parts of a Ventilator and Ventilator Controller

  1. Internal air intake – draws in stale indoor air, directing it through the heat exchanger core.
  2. External air intake – draws outside air, venting it through the air filter.
  3. Internal air exhaust – vents indoor air outside from the heat exchanger core. Up to 84% of the indoor heat has been removed, helping minimize utility costs.
  4. Fresh air exhaust – vents conditioned, heated outdoor air into your living areas.
  5. High efficiency heat recovery core – extracts heat from stale indoor air and transfers it to fresh outdoor air for maximum comfort with little heat loss. This core also removes excess humidity from recirculated air – lower humidity levels help you stay comfortable at higher temperatures in the summer and lower temperatures in the winter.
  6. Ventilator motor – moves air through the system efficiently and quietly.
  7. Air filter – cleans outdoor air of small particles before they circulate through your home.
  8. Electronic circuit board – adjusts air circulation modes and motor speeds.
  9. Damper defrost – helps prevent frost from forming within the system, eliminating the need for a supplemental energy -consuming electric defroster. This defroster engages when temperatures drop below 23 degrees Fahrenheit.
  10. Briefcase-style exterior latches – allow easy filter changes with no tools required.
  11. Simple wall control – makes operating the HRV easy and convenient.
