The air inside your home could be more harmful to your family than the air outside. In fact, indoor air pollution was recently named by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as one of the top five risks to public health. That’s because it’s filled with mold spores, pet dander, dust mites, and even pollen.
Often these contaminants are brought in from the outside because outside air is infiltrating the home through leaks. The leaks can be detected and in most cases the problems can be eliminated by doing an Inflitrometer Blower Test on the home and then having those areas sealed to prevent contaminants from reentering. The by-product is a tighter, more energy efficient home. Wilson offers both the test and the home tightening work associated with the findings of the test.
As an industry leader in the installation and service of indoor air quality products, you can trust Wilson to keep the air in your home clean and healthy.
If someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, you already know the negative impact that polluted air can have. No matter how clean you keep your home, it’s likely full of harmful particles that can exacerbate allergies and asthma.
Once your home is properly sealed there are additional products that can help to further maintain clean air inside your home. Here are some of the products we offer that can help you breathe easier.
High-efficiency particulate arresting (HEPA) filters are super-efficient filters that remove up to 99.97% of the particles passing through them. A whole-house HEPA filter will rid your home’s air of particulate contaminants that measure 0.3 microns or larger.
Even if you install one of the most advanced air cleaners on the market, disease-causing organisms such as germs and bacteria may still compromise the quality of your home’s air. An ultraviolet (UV) light air-treatment system is an effective solution. UV light is deadly to mold, bacteria and other organisms.
While today’s energy-efficient homes do a great job of keeping heated or cooled air in, they can also trap stale, contaminated air inside.
A ventilating system, also sometimes called a ventilator, can be an effective solution. Ventilators remove dangerous gases from your home by exchanging fresh, clean outdoor air for the “dirty” air inside. What’s more, they can do this with no loss of heated or cooled air so there is no waste of precious energy.
Eliminate hot and cold spots in your home! Improve the efficiency and performance of your existing comfort system. One control gives you the ability to fine-tune the temperature throughout your home.
