According to the EPA, poor indoor air quality is one of the top 5 environmental threats to public health.
This may come as a surprise. After all, we typically worry more about pollution and smog outside than we do the air within our own homes. However, many of today's buildings suffer from poor indoor air quality as a result of a number of factors: offgasing from toxic building materials, mold and mildew, radon gas, carbon monoxide gas from combustion appliances, and other culprits including dust and pet dander.
Our whole house air filtration solutions offer you peace of mind by tackling the air quality throughout your whole house at once. While individual air purifiers clean the air in one room at a time, whole-house home air filters are designed to improve the air quality throughout your house with a minimum of inconvenience and a maximum of effectiveness, reducing health risks including asthma, allergies and other respiratory problems.
In our climate zone, the best way to have fresh filtered air is a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV). It pulls air out of bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms and puts fresh filtered air in bedrooms, and living rooms. These run 24/7 ensuring you have total house air changes and constant fresh filtered air in the rooms that you want them. We install them so they work separately from the HVAC system.
Below are a few diagrams of how they work.
