Your HVAC system filters your indoor air to remove particulate matter, but if you have family members or visitors who suffer from allergies, you should consider installing an air cleaner and/or humidifier to help keep your indoor air pollutant-free and comfortable.
Air cleaners are designed to remove particulate matter like dust, dirt, pollen, mold and mildew as well as other indoor air pollutants. Air purifiers are designed to remove unpleasant or pungent odors. We offer air cleaners and purifiers by Aprilaire and Apco.
Humidifiers add moisture to your air in order to protect your finishes and your health. Some of the finishes in your home require a certain percentage of humidity in order to function well and remain beautiful. Finishes and structures damaged by excessively dry air include hardwood floors, wooden furniture and hardwood moldings. When it comes to your health and comfort, properly humidified air can reduce static electricity and help you breathe better.
Our licensed HVAC technicians in Chicago can install standalone, fan-powered humidifiers, which are separate units that connect to your home's ductwork. Other options include ductless humidifiers or bypass humidifiers, which are directly connected to your HVAC system. We are proud to offer high-quality, durable Aprilaire humidifiers.
Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air in your home. Excess moisture in the home can lead to excess condensation that provides the perfect breeding ground for mold growth. A whole home dehumidifier is installed as part of a home's HVAC system and protects your health, the structural components of your home and your furniture by reducing moisture in the air.
Air cleaners, humidifiers and dehumidifiers are additional items that are part of your HVAC system. In order to keep your entire system running well, we recommend planning for future preventive maintenance and repairs before they happen.
