Indoor Air Quality Providing Comfort Year-Round

Expert Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Improving Indoor Air Quality in Seattle

The air quality inside your home is just as important as heating or cooling it. Poor indoor air quality can open your home to serious health risks. At Fox Plumbing & Heating, we offer our customers air quality solutions that can help you breathe easy.

We have several products to improve your home’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), including:

  • Electronic air cleaners
  • Media air filters
  • Ultraviolet (UV) light systems
  • Complete air purifying system installations

Air Cleaning Solutions

Electronic air cleaners and media air filters (aka furnace filters) work by trapping particles that flow through the furnace or air handler fan before the air moves into your home. Media filters are composed of paper, and they must be changed out every 4-6 months depending on your furnace’s specifications. These filters are recyclable.

Electronic air cleaners use an electrostatic charge to adhere dirt and dust particles to a plate. That plate is easily removed and washed off. Advanced models, such as the Coleman hybrid electronic air cleaner, can remove allergens, viruses, mold, and smoke at a level equivalent to a top-quality media filter.

Air Purifying Solutions

Products that purify the air do more than trap particles that come their way. They proactively kill viruses, mold, and other organic compounds. The most popular of these air purifiers is the safe and hospital-tested UV light. Ultraviolet light, the light from the sun, is naturally purifying. When installed in your furnace or handler alongside your air cleaning filter. It creates a strong system for indoor air quality control.

Why Is Indoor Air Quality a Concern?

According to numerous national organization studies, including the EPA, Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the American Lung Association, the air we breathe in our homes can be more of a health concern than outdoor air pollution. In fact, the air inside our homes can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air outside.

There are many sources of indoor air pollution, including:

  • Cleaning supplies, household chemicals, asbestos, lead, paint fumes
  • Viruses, mold spores, bacteria, pollen, dust mites, pet dander
  • Tobacco smoke, incense
  • Radon gas, carbon monoxide
  • Building materials
  • Pest droppings

All of these items can create dangerous VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Once these contaminates are in our homes, it’s difficult to get them out. When home ventilation is insufficient, these particles build up and cause asthma, lung disease, allergies, infections, and other health concerns.

The current trend towards sealing homes tightly to reduce energy costs comes at a price. Today’s homes have thick side walls packed full of insulation, insulated glass windows, and tightly sealed doors. This is very efficient at keeping cool air out, which reduces our utility bills and increases home comfort, but all the pollutants we create cannot escape.
