When it comes to your wellbeing, home is the last place you expect to encounter risks to your health. Your Pittsburg, PA home’s indoor air, however, is often more polluted than the air outside. Indoor pollution is particularly harmful to people with medical conditions like allergies and asthma. Long-term exposure poses health hazards for every member of your family. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to clear the air.

Source Control

Good housekeeping goes a long way towards keeping pollutants out of your home. Dust is a sticky substance that attracts allergens from pet dander to mold and mildew. A vacuum with a HEPA filter picks up the tiny particulates. Household maintenance matters too. Poorly maintained appliances like fuel-burning furnaces can emit dangerous gases, including deadly carbon monoxide. Our preventive maintenance plans keep your HVAC systems operating safely.

Air Purification Systems

Research shows that filtration systems like air cleaners can help improve indoor air quality. As a Trane Comfort Specialist, we install a wide variety of air purifiers. One of the best is Trane’s CleanEffects air cleaner. The whole-house system works with your HVAC equipment to remove up to 99.98 percent of airborne pollutants. It’s up to 100 times more effective than the filters in standard residential HVAC systems.

Ventilation Solutions

Ventilators that bring fresh air indoors and exhaust stale air also improve indoor air quality. Systems known as energy recovery ventilators work efficiently without sending your utility bills sky-high. For example, Trane’s FreshEffects ventilator captures energy from the outgoing air to pre-filter incoming air. It does a great job of decreasing chemical vapors emitted from everyday items like cleaners and personal care products.
