Residential Indoor Air Quality


Make yourself Comfortable

Your home is your haven. But sometimes it might not feel like one. One part of the house might be uncomfortably hot and stuffy. Another can seem chilly and drafty.

Why can't every room feel "just right" all the time?
Today's home control technologies are designed to give you and your family a greater, more consistent sense of comfort, while saving you money at the same time.

Air Cleaners

Breathe easier with...

Nothing cleans your indoor air like the CleanEffects Whole Home Air Filtration System. It removes up to an unprecedented 99.98% of unwanted particles and allergens from the filtered air in your home. Standard 1" throwaway filters and ionic-type room appliances can't even begin to match that.

The health benefits to clean air are obvious, but how can up to 99.98% allergen-free air make you more comfortable?

  • Removes allergens: CleanEffects filters airborne allergens like mold, dust mites, pollen, even pet hair and animal dander, before they can land on your rugs, floors and upholstery.
  • Prevents odors: The majority of irritating particles like cooking grease, even smoke from burnt food, can be removed from the air.

You don't have to have a family member who suffers from asthma or allergies to appreciate the health benefits of home Air Cleaners. In some ways they're the most important elements of home comfort.

AccuClean Trane That's why we now offer Trane CleanEffects™—the most advanced way to filter and clean the air throughout your entire home. CleanEffects™ removes up to an unprecedented 99.98% of unwanted particles and allergens from the filtered air in your home and over 99% of the common flu, or influenza A virus.

Fill your whole house with clean, consistent comfort.
CleanEffects is a whole house air cleaner, meaning it works in conjunction with your heating and cooling system to clean up to 99.98% of airborne allergens from filtered air in every room of your home. Compare this to plug-in air cleaners that operate in a single room. To match the effect of a whole house system, you'd have to buy several plug-in cleaners at a cost of $300 to $500 each. Even then, plug-ins are only effective within a certain radius, potentially leaving much of the air in the room unfiltered. CleanEffects delivers unbeatable clean air comfort
  • Removes up to 99.98% of allergens from filtered air.
  • Catches particles down to .3 microns in size.
  • 8 times more effective than the best HEPA room appliance.
  • 100 times more effective than a standard 1" throwaway filter or ionic-type room appliance.
  • Delivers cleaner air, and more of it.
  • Reusable filter is easy to vacuum or wash.
We can help you evaluate your air filtration needs, and show you the best air filtration setup for your home. Call us to find out more about the Trane CleanEffects air filtration system.

*Ratings of cubic feet per minute of clean air delivered for a typical 3-ton heating and cooling system: the higher the value, the more effective the air cleaner. Clean air delivery rate (efficiency times airflow rate) is recognized by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a fair and objective measure of various air cleaner technologies.

Thermostats

Save money on your energy bill.

The average household spends more than $2,000 a year on energy bills — nearly half of which goes to heating and cooling. Homeowners can save about $180** a year by properly setting their programmable thermostats and maintaining those settings.

**The $180 savings assumes a typical, single–family home with a 10 hour daytime setback of 8° F in winter and setup of 7° F in summer, and an 8 hour nighttime setback of 8° F in winter and a setup of 4° F in summer.

A professional thermostat installation ensures proper heating and cooling system operation and takes installation risk out of your hands.

VisonPro8000 Honeywell A programmable thermostat can save you money on your utility bill - up to 33%*, if used as directed. You set it up to adjust the temperature when you are away from home or asleep - when you don't necessarily need optimum comfort - and your HVAC equipment runs less.

Plus, your heating or cooling comes back to a comfort level automatically when you come home or wake up. All Honeywell Programmable Thermostats carry the EPA's EnergyStar® rating and are designed to be very easy to use.

Humidifiers

In winter...

the simple act of turning up your thermostat dries out your house. That's because warm, dry air acts like a giant sponge that soaks up moisture from everything it touches.

The Unpleasant results: You may experience dry skin and chapped lips. Hardwood floors separate at the seams. Woodwork and furniture shrink, warp and crack. The piano goes out of tune. Wallpaper peels at the edges.

Fact is that wintertime relative humidity inside the average home hovers around a bone-dry 15%.

By contrast, the average humidity in the Sahara Desert is 25%!

HE365 Honeywell Air in your home that is too dry can be uncomfortable to breathe, and can damage wood products like flooring, pianos, picture frames and cabinetry. In the winter, it's especially important to add moisture to the air, since dry winter air can drive down the relative humidity level in your home to as low as 15%, which is drier than the air in most deserts. A Honeywell Humidifier can help keep the humidity in your home at the proper level.


"True" Humidification — TrueSTEAM Humidifier

TrueSTEAM Honeywell's breakthrough TrueSTEAM Humidification System can ensure that your home and family are getting the right amount of moisture.

Your home is a lot like your body. It needs to stay properly hydrated in order to maintain the health and comfort of those living in it.

Air that is too dry can act like a giant sponge, soaking moisture up from everything that it touches in your home - your woodwork, wood floors and furnishings - not to mention symptoms of dry skin, chapped lips, dry nasal passages and static electricity.

No doubt about it, dry air can take a toll on your family and your comfort.

Key Features:
  • Moisture on Demand - TrueSTEAM works by producing its own steam independent of equipment operation, so your home gets moisture when you need it most.
  • Eco-Friendly - TrueSTEAM is the most eco-friendly way to humidify your home, because it uses up to 70 percent less water while delivering more moisture than traditional whole-house humidifiers.
  • "True Steam" - While other humidifiers rely on moisture-filled pads that can be susceptible to bacteria growth in the water and the airstream, TrueSTEAM delivers "true steam" - the cleanest form of humidification.
  • Reduced Heating Bills - In addition to keeping your home and family comfortable, TrueSTEAM can help reduce heating bills. Because humidified air feels warmer, you'll be able to turn your thermostat down for energy savings.
  • Out of Sight, Out of Mind - TrueSTEAM is installed out-of-sight by your heating and cooling professional into your home's central heating and cooling system. You can forget about having to fill clunky, portable units, because TrueSTEAM automatically fills itself.
  • Minimal Maintenance - Simply clean once a year with soap and water and the rest of the time it cleans itself automatically.

An air exchanger removes your home's stale indoor air and replaces it with an equal amount of fresh outdoor air. Plus, it recovers heat and moisture from the exchanged air in the winter, and pre-cools and dehumidifies incoming air in the summer. The result: a more comfortable, healthy, energy-efficient home for you and your family.

For fresher, healthier air in your home.

Energy Recovery Ventilator Trane A fresh new way to enhance your comfort. When you want to increase your comfort by breathing fresher indoor air — instead of common indoor contaminants like odors, chemical vapors from cleaners and the CO2 we exhale — The Trane Fresh Effects™ Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) replaces stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, and it transfers heat and moisture from the exchanged air.

UV Light Honeywell Honeywell's Ultraviolet (UV) Air Treatment Systems zap mold spores and certain live, airborne bacteria passing by the lamp to prevent them from being re-circulated into your home's air. The shortwave lights, similar to those used in hospitals, laboratories and commercial kitchens, are easy to add to your existing heating and cooling system. Plus, the long-life lamps are easy to replace when needed.

The Honeywell UV Air Treatment System can kill up to 87% of certain airborne bacteria* in the air passing through your heating/cooling system, reducing the presence of these harmful agents in the air your family breathes.

*Test performed shows a single-pass kill rate of serratia marcescens bacteria in a clean metal 12"x25" duct at an airflow of 2000 cfm using new lamps.

Guardian Air

The Main Advantage:

Guardian Air does not need the pollutants to travel to the air handler for UV treatment or filtration. Guardian Air is proactive and sends ionized aggressive advanced oxidizers into the room to destroy the pollutants at the source, in the air and on surfaces, before they can reach your family, clients or employees.

Innovative Environmental Technology

RGF Guardian Air PHI Cell RGF The Guardian Air by RGF® is designed to eliminate sick building syndrome risks by reducing odors, air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors), smoke, mold bacteria and viruses.

The HVAC-PHI Cells are easily mounted into air conditioning and heating systems air ducts where most sick building problems start. When the HVAC system is in operation the HVAC-PHI Cell creates an Advanced Oxidation Process consisting of: Hydro-peroxides, super oxide ions and hydroxide ions. All are friendly oxidizers. By friendly oxidizers we mean oxidizers that revert back to oxygen and hydrogen after the oxidation of the pollutant.

The Guardian Air is proven to inactivate 99+% of the H1N1 (Swine Flu) virus. Based on a study conducted by Kansas State University.
