Poor air quality could lead to health concerns for your family. When out in the world, some exposure to harmful air cannot be prevented, but your home should be different. In the comfort of your own home, your air should be ideal for the health of your family. Serving Peachtree City and the surrounding cities, Ferguson Heating and Air offers products specifically designed to improve your air quality and counteract negative air effects in your home.
How can air filters and cleaners protect my family?
Your indoor air quality can become polluted by pollen, dust, and fumes. With more limited circulation present inside of a house, these pollutants can be easily inhaled. Once inhaled, your family could be exposed to a range of sicknesses. According to The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, approximately 50% of illnesses are either caused or aggravated by poor indoor air quality. Negative indoor air quality can be prevented for your family’s wellbeing by utilizing air filters and cleaners. Although there are different levels of protection available, all of the air filters essentially accomplish the same task–removing micron particles. Depending on their size, micron particles can cause significant problems once impacting the lungs or blood stream of a person. Based upon your family’s needs and budget, our technicians can recommend the ideal air filtration system for your home.
How do air purifiers improve my home’s air quality?
Even though you may have an air filter to guard against micron particles, there are two other concerning air contaminants: bio-aerosols and odors/chemical vapors. Bio-aerosols grow into fungi, viruses, mold, and bacteria in humid climates within your home. Vapors are usually added to your environment by your family’s lifestyle, including pet odors, cooking smells, perfumes, tobacco smoke, chlorine, cleaning supplies, and paints. Patented by Lennox Industries, the Ferguson preferred Air Purifier can protect your family from the ill effects of these contaminants, lower humidity, and provide greater comfort. Combining an air purifier with an air filter in your home could significantly improve the overall wellness of your family.
How could a dehumidifier better my air quality?
Although many families employ simple plug-in dehumidifiers, whole house dehumidifiers have proved through testing to be more effective at moisture removal by 50%. Since moisture in your home could lead to mold and mildew, taking the humidity of your home seriously is of the utmost importance. To some extent, all humans are at least mildly allergic to mold and mildew, so dehumidifying is important regardless of diagnosed allergies. Not only could this protect your family, a dehumidifier could have an impact on the preservation of your possessions as well. Humidity can be detrimental to your family and your valuables.
Besides being more healthy, a dehumidifier also affects the comfort of your home. If the air within your home is too high in moisture content, it will feel uncomfortable and humid within your home. Dehumidifiers can balance out the present moisture to allow ideal air for your family.
What other products could potentially be beneficial for my family’s health?
Ferguson recognizes that every family and home has different needs as far as air quality go. In addition to the aforementioned products, we also offer humidifiers, fresh air ventilation systems, and germicidal lamps. Humidifiers may be necessary for your home, if your air quality is too cold and dry. Also a humidifier could be cost saving on heating costs as well. Fresh Air ventilation systems are necessary for homes which need assistance to find a balance of air circulation. If mold or mildew is the greatest concern, germicidal lamps could help fight the effects of these pollutants inside your HVAC system. This purification could improve air quality and help maintain the cleanliness of your system.
How can I make my home more comfortable for my family?
Programmable thermostats allow for families on the go to have comfort whenever they are home. If your family always leaves at 7 am and returns at 5 pm, why would you cool the house for the entire day? Not only can programmable thermostats save money and energy, also they can ensure your family’s comfort. Your system can be programmed to turn on with enough advance notice to cool your home to the desired temperature before you arrive home.
Electronic zone systems can provide comfort for climate diverse families. If one family member is warm-natured, they can have their room cool without freezing the other family members. Typically, zone systems can accommodate four different zones within the house. With zone systems, each family member’s comfort can be considered and maintained.
How could my family’s safety be prioritized?
Ferguson offers two different smoke detectors which also detect carbon monoxide. We offer these devices at a very low cost because we believe these life-saving devices should be in every home.
In addition to the traditional wall mounted detectors, we also have detectors which can be mounted in your ducts. The ones placed in your ducts work alongside your HVAC system to preserve your life and property in the event of smoke by shutting the fan off, so further smoke spread will be minimized.
The wall mounted devices also detect carbon monoxide because it is the leading poison related death in our country. Protecting your family from the poisonous gas which can be emitted from faulty appliances is crucial.
Clean and ideal air quality can further the health and well-being of your family. Whether your family has allergy or health issues or not, good air quality could prevent damage from inhaling pollutants. Ferguson Heating and Air is prepared to formulate the best plan for your home in Peachtree City or the surrounding area. Our skilled technicians will discuss your family’s needs with you and offer options to improve your family’s air quality.
