Air Quality Services

When you can’t be outdoors to enjoy fresh air, it’s important to maintain the quality of the air inside your home. Preventing contaminants and maintaining efficient air flow is paramount to the health of you and your family.

 

Reasons to invest in air quality services from Capital Heat:

Safety

Reducing airborne impurities such as mold, viruses, bacteria, and chemicals can prevent health issues or minimize the severity of existing symptoms.

Increased Comfort

Improving air quality results in humidity control, even heating throughout your house, accurate temperature maintenance, and a reduction of airborne allergens.

Peace of Mind

Cleaner air gives you the assurance that your family is living in a healthy environment.

Return on Investment

Because improved air quality leads to more accurate temperature maintenance, you will reap the rewards of lower energy bills by adjusting your thermostat and controls to run only when you need them.

Air Quality Services Offered by Capital Heat:

Bi-Polar Ionization

Bi-Polar Ionization releases positive and negative ions and sends them through the ductwork in your home. These ions neutralize particles from allergens such as smoke, dust, and pollen while also reducing odors, bacteria, and mold – resulting in significantly cleaner and healthier air.

Filters

The air inside your home is healthiest and most efficient when it is flowing freely. When your Air Conditioning coil or ductwork is clogged, airflow is diminished – resulting in system overuse and decreased efficiency. If you allow your filters to become clogged (or don’t have a filter at all), your A/C evaporator coil will freeze into a solid block of ice, resulting in costly repairs.

To prevent common issues, you should replace your furnace filter as recommended by our service technicians.

Electrostatic Filters

Electrostatic filters are extremely efficient, removing up to 95.3% of airborne particles. These filters use electrostatically charged polypropylene and polyurethane filtration medias to attract particles as small as .3 micron. (1 micron = 1/25,000 in.). A safe static charge is produced by forcing air across the filter. Simply put, this static charge attracts and traps airborne particles into the filter like a magnet.

Disposable Filters

Disposable filters are not as efficient as electrostatic filters, but they do acceptably filter dust and allergens. The most common disposable filter is the standard fiberglass media filter with a cardboard frame.
