Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality in Louisville & Lexington
On a fundamental level, we understand that breathing bad air is bad for our lungs and our overall health. We may actively avoid breathing smoke or gasoline fumes. But what we often fail to account for is the very air in our own homes.
Dust, pollen, bacteria, viruses, pet dander, mold spores, dust mites, and other allergens may be floating through your home. Pollen is particularly noticeable during the spring and summer, but all these air contaminants contribute to sneezing and coughing.
Dauenhauer has the expertise to ensure your home has safe, breathable air. We install air purification systems, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and clean ductwork in Louisville & Lexington, Kentucky.
Indoor Air Qualitive Preventative Measures & Maintenance
The first step to improving indoor air quality is changing to a quality anti-dander air filter, preventative maintenance, cleaning for your HVAC system, and ductwork cleaning.
An anti-dander air filter is a little more expensive than a standard $6 air filter, but its improved air filtering is worth the extra money. Additionally, these premium air filters last much longer than cheap ones.
It’s important to have a professional technician check your home’s HVAC system to ensure nothing is amiss and everything is working correctly. Duct cleaning will clean out your duct system so that bacteria and spores aren’t making homes within your ductwork and spreading throughout your house.
Allergy and Asthma Relief Solutions
Do you suffer from allergy symptoms? Well, you aren’t alone. Tens of millions of Americans suffer allergy and asthma symptoms throughout the United States. Our technicians can test your air quality and see how much particulate matter floats around your home.
Air Purification Filtration System
If pollen and other allergens are your main problems, we can do a home inspection and find where outside air may be leaking into your home and bringing in air pollutants. Once your home is reasonably sealed, we can install an air purification system. This system is installed with your air handler in your HVAC system and is a more advanced air filtration system.
It purifies the air of pollen, dust, and other allergens. An air purification system is especially effective if you have pets leaving dander through the house. Some air purification systems include Ultraviolet light (UV light) that can neutralize bacteria and viruses floating through your home.
Air Pollution Solutions
As we all know, summers can get hot and sticky in Jefferson County, Kentucky. High humidity levels create breeding grounds for nasty air-borne contaminants like mold, mildew, viruses, bacteria, and dust mites.
A UV air purification system is a big step in reducing these pathogens in your home, but a whole-home humidifier is the clencher to put a stop to them. Without the excess water they need for propagation, their colonies die out.
A whole-home dehumidifier brings humidity levels back down to reasonable levels and lets you breathe normally again. The extra comfort level gained may even let you set your AC a few degrees warmer and still feel comfortable.
Reducing Dry Skin & Static Electricity
As humidity drops over the winter, you may notice that your skin dries out. It feels stretched, and you may develop dander, cracked lips, or dry sinuses during the cold months. This is due to the low humidity in your home.
Low humidity can create static electricity that shocks you when you touch doorknobs and other metal objects. It can also be harmful to your property as wood shrinks, leather dries out, and indoor plants struggle. Pets are thirstier and need to be let outside more often. The low humidity is bad for their fur as well.
A whole-home humidifier brings humidity and life back into your home. It will keep your home’s humidity comfortable.
