How IAQ Technology Can Improve Home Comfort

Your house should be a place where you can escape the sneezing, coughing, itchy eyes, and endless irritation that allergens cause. If you’ve found that your symptoms increase at home, indoor air quality (IAQ) products can help. Ventilators, advanced air purifiers, and other IAQ technology have become an integral part of HVAC systems in the 21st century. These products can alleviate common air quality problems.

Our Air Quality Solutions

At Preferred Air Conditioning & Mechanical, we install systems that remove allergens, destroy contaminants, and neutralize mold spores and bacteria. Here’s how some of these systems work.

  • Air cleaners and purifiers use specially designed filters to capture pollutants, particles, and germs. They can reduce allergy symptoms and asthma attacks by removing smoke, pet dander, dust, and pollen.
  • Energy-recovery ventilators reduce or eliminate indoor pollution by exchanging stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air. They also cool that outdoor air before it enters your home preventing excess energy consumption. These products also reduce levels of formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds that are found in particleboard, air fresheners, and cleaning products. These compounds can cause headaches, nausea, and eye irritation.
  • Ultraviolet lamps can disable a number of serious air quality threats, including mold spores, and bacteria that cause respiratory illnesses. Lamps are installed in damp areas near the evaporator coils and condensate pan where pathogens can multiply.
  • Dehumidification equipment can keep your home more comfortable. A dehumidifier can get rid of dust mites, mold, and pathogens that require moisture. In Port St. Lucie, the average humidity fluctuates between 75 and 92 percent throughout the year. Even with your air conditioner running constantly, your home may still feel sticky. Dehumidification solutions can control pathogens and make your home feel cooler and more comfortable.
