As leaders in indoor comfort, Harmony Heating can add air quality accessories to your existing or new heating and cooling system that can improve the humidity and air quality in your home. These accessories help reduce allergens, bacteria, and improve the overall comfort level in your home.
Are typically installed near the air conditioning coil to prevent microbial and mold. The coil can remain wet even after a typical cooling call, and the dark location creates an ideal environment for bacterial or mold growth. The light given off from UV bulbs has proven to be effective in reducing or eliminating such growth. Concerns about viruses have led to rapid development of new technologies including UV, sometimes combining multiple IAQ strategies to find the best solution for each home.
One of the healthiest contributions you can add to your home, fresh air! ERV’s are self-contained units that draw fresh outside air into them, filter the air and simultaneously exhaust an equal amount of air while transferring a large percentage of the heat and humidity content to the opposite air stream. In the summer, as the cool conditioned air is exhausted from the house, the incoming air recovers some of the spent energy within the air leaving the space. In the winter the opposite occurs, allowing you to introduce adequate fresh air for healthy living without wasting electricity and fuel to re-heat or re-cool this air. These units can be ducted stand-alone or bypassed into your existing HVAC system.
Eliminate the temperature differences throughout your home with an electronic zone control system. Designed to deliver conditioned air to the rooms that need it. Although zoning cannot always be added to every system, some single zone homes can be converted to multiple zones without adding additional equipment.
Aprilaire media air cleaners remove unwanted dust, pollen, mold and other allergens. They also do a great job protecting your heating and cooling equipment and can help prevent unwanted service repairs. These highly efficient filters are available in a variety of sizes, MERV ratings, and additional features. A good air cleaner is typically the most important component of any IAQ system.
Control indoor humidity during our more humid months with an Aprilaire dehumidifier. Did you know that although central air conditioners remove humidity as part of the cooling process, they typically do not run long enough to achieve optimal humidity in your home. An Aprilaire dehumidifier can operate either alongside your heating and cooling system, or they can operate independently as standalone systems for a basement or crawlspace. Many people fail to realize that humidity can have a greater effect on comfort than temperature, and finding that balance can vastly improve the overall feeling of the air in your home.
Aprilaire humidifiers add moisture to dry indoor environments during the winter heating season. The common belief is forced air heating systems create drier air, this is false, it is the cold winter air that is unable to hold as much humidity as the warmer months. Having a warm air furnace means that you can easily add a permanent humidifier to your system to add that missing humidity to your home. Humidifiers help reduce static electricity, relieve allergy symptoms and protect your furniture and woodworking.
