Indoor Air Quality

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the average person spends 90% of their time indoors and the quality of air indoors is typically two to five times higher than outdoors. The air quality in your home and office play a role in your health.

What Causes Indoor Air Problems?

  • Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air, like cooking, cleaning products, paint, and more.
  • Inadequate ventilation or circulating pollutants throughout the building caused by clogged ducts and vents can increase indoor pollutant levels.
  • High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Air Quality and Home Performance Testing

A home performance test will also alert you of potential problems before they become expensive repairs. An efficiency test on your HVAC and air quality equipment provides you with a comprehensive diagnostic of your entire system.

Cook Home Services’ Home Performance Testing gives you a detailed look at the efficiency and performance of your heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems. The test checks to see if your system is running as efficiently as it can, where it may be inefficient, and ways to fix the problem.

Our team of trained HVAC professionals are knowledgeable in energy efficiency and sustainable energy systems. We know just what to look for and how to execute plans to keep your HVAC system operating at peak efficiency.

Air Filtration and Purification

Air filtration and purification can help improve indoor air quality. Filters help decrease the amount of dust and pollutants in a building, while air purifiers destroy bacteria, molds, and fungus.

Your HVAC system passes air through a filter before circulating it through your home. High-quality filters trap large particles as well as tiny allergens, leaving the air in your home cleaner, healthier, and better for breathing.

Filters have different ratings, known as a MERV rating (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values). The MERV report a filter’s ability to capture larger particles. The higher the MERV rating the better the filter is at trapping specific types of particles.

Cook Home Services provides the proper MERV rated filter for your HVAC system and home, and uses filters that need changed every six months. It’s most important to find a filter that has a good balance between protecting the system and not restricting the air flow.

All filters need periodic cleaning and replacement to function properly, and your purifier should be checked to ensure it’s in proper working order. To keep your filters and air purifiers in tiptop shape, contact us about our maintenance plans.

Humidity Testing

Humidity control plays an important role in indoor air quality. Water vapor is a key agent in climate and has a number of effects on health. A healthy indoor climate consists of a perfect balance of humidity.

A low humidity climate exacerbates respiratory issues, can lead to dry skin and a scratchy throat, and make you more susceptible to sinus infections. A climate that is too humid creates an environment perfect for mold, mildew, bacteria, and other pathogens. High humidity may also cause condensation which can lead to water stains and odors.

Cook Home Services offers effective humidity control methods and we work with the best manufactures of humidity control equipment. We have experience with humidifiers, dehumidifiers, whole home humidity control systems, and built-in HVAC humidity control.

Humidifiers

A humidifier is a device that simply introduces water vapor into the air. Most humidifiers have a mechanism that gauges moisture and releases water vapor when moisture levels get too low. There are small humidifiers for individual rooms, as well as large ones for an entire building.

Dehumidifiers

A dehumidifier is a device that removes excess moisture from the air. They work by drawing warm air currents into its coils via a fan. The warm air contracts as it’s fed through the refrigerated coils of the machine, and condensation is left inside the dehumidifier.

Did you know? Extremely cold temperatures decrease the humidity drastically while hotter temperatures can result in higher humidity.
