Indoor Air Quality

How does an indoor quality system work?

At Gerard Plumbing and Heating, we approach air quality on two levels; duct cleaning and mechanical. Our mechanical options use a filtration system and air purifiers such as the Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaner and iWave-R Air Purifier to automatically prevent pollutants from entering the atmosphere. Your furnace filter also acts as a line of defense against dust, dirt, and other unwanted pollutants. The duct cleaning process is a great step to clean out any substances that have already been built inside the ductwork. Even with the filters and purifiers, it's a good idea to periodically get your ductwork cleaned.

What does indoor air quailty mean?

Indoor air quality refers to the quality of the air inside and around a property. It primarily relates to the health and comfort of the interior atmosphere. Removing indoor pollutants can help decrease your risk of health concerns. Health problems caused by indoor air pollutants may show up quickly or take a long time to manifest. Indoor air quality is often the most overlooked aspect of your home's comfort system.

Fighting Airborne Illness With the APCO Whole-House Air Purifier

With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, Gerard Plumbing and Heating wants you to know that your safety is of the utmost importance to us. In addition to odors and volatile organic compounds, many viruses are airborne and can pollute your air quality. APCO Whole-House Air Purifier can help reduce and/or eliminate odors, chemical contaminants (Volatile Organic Compounds or VOC), and biological contaminants.

According to the Fresh-Aire UV website, "Fresh-Aire UV systems are tested and validated against bacteria, viruses, mold & fungus. Fresh-Aire UV systems have been tested and achieve up to a *99.999996% reduction on microorganisms." While Fresh-Aire UV states they have not tested against COVID-19, they have tested other microorganisms similar to coronavirus and the results demonstrated effectiveness. The APCO Whole-House Air Purifier uses a UV-C light which captures and neutralizes airborne contaminants.
