Indoor Air Quality Solutions in West Los Angeles
Healthy Air Filtration and Air Purification are Essential to Improving Indoor Air Quality.
We've partnered with Carrier to provide our customers in the West Los Angeles area with top-of-the-line products. Below are some of the options we can provide for purer, healthier air.
Carrier Air Filtration Products
Air Filtration is the removal of particulate matter from the airstream. This is accomplished by the installation of a filter at the air intake portion of the furnace. Standard filters furnished with your furnace are typically about 8% to 10% efficient and are designed only to help keep large airborne particles from clogging your air conditioning cooling coil. They do a poor job of this at best.
Carrier High-Efficiency Air Cleaners
High-efficiency air cleaners have been available for many years (rated at efficiencies of 60% to 95%). Besides providing a superior level of protection for your equipment, they also protect your health and your home.
These filters are specifically designed to remove pollen, mold, spores, and fine dust from the air you breathe. The most common type of high-efficiency air cleaners are the media-type, the electronic air cleaner, and an advanced hybrid-type perfect-air cleaner:
- The Media-Type Air Cleaner: this type obtains its High-Efficiency rating by having a densely woven fabric, and an extremely large surface area (between 60 and 90 square feet of surface area, compared to 4 square feet in a standard filter) to catch airborne contaminants. When the media becomes dirty or full, it is simply replaced, typically only once a year
- The Electronic Air Cleaner: this works by having pre-screen filters trap the larger size particles, and then the remaining smaller airborne particles are given an electric charge and caught on Collector Plates. As the filter loads-up, these Screens and Collector Plates are then removed and washed about three times a year.
Air Purification is the process of eliminating bacteria, viruses, mold, and other organic compounds from the conditioned air supply. The device that has the longest and most proven track record in eliminating these contaminants is the UVC light emitter:
- The UVC light emitter is a simple device consisting of UVC lights that are installed inside of your system. They are located where they can emit safely on the internal surface of the cooling coil and drain pan. This stops the formation and growth of mold and other living organisms that are common inside your system. The UVC emitter also radiates light on anything carried in the airstream during the normal operation of the system. This allows any airborne Virus or Bacteria to be killed before it is delivered into your home as conditioned air.
- The Perfect Air-Media Air Cleaner is the ultimate in filtration. It not only has extremely efficient media in it but also has trap and kill technology, to kill and eliminate the contaminants it removes from the airstream. The same technology trusted to protect secure government facilities & hospital patients. It is the best of both worlds and it is easy to service and maintain. Any one of these filters may be installed on your system, but a trained technician will be best able to choose the right filter for you.
Asthma, Allergies & Respiratory Problems
For men, women, and children who suffer from asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems, as well as those who are simply concerned about the air they breathe, there are now ways to create a clean and healthy indoor environment. Many people currently use portable air cleaning devices that may help in one room, but the entire home needs to be free of indoor air pollutants for the better, healthy air solution.
