whole house air filtration systemIf you’d like to improve your home’s indoor air quality in Ankeny, IA, Metro Heating & Cooling is the company to trust. We have HVAC technicians who install and service all whole-house air filtration solutions.

    Our team can test your air quality. We can then help you develop a multifaceted approach that’s right for your home and makes sense for your budget.

    Whole-House Air Filtration Systems

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends scheduling IAQ testing every other year. Our team can test for radon, mold, bacteria, and much more.

    We can also assess your ventilation system. Ventilation is key. If your home doesn’t get enough of it, pollutants can more easily rise to dangerous levels.

    If there are ventilation issues, you have a number of options. Air balancing is one. For this service, our technicians ensure that the HVAC system evenly distributes conditioned air throughout the home. You may want to install a whole-house fan if you only have passive ventilation. It will provide the fresh air you need without introducing more pollutants and contaminants.

    Many of our customers opt to have us install HVAC UV lights in their ducts. UV-C is a germicidal light that neutralizes bacteria, viruses, mold spores, dust mite eggs, and more. UV lamps are particularly well-suited to your ductwork. The air moves slower, so the exposure time is longer.

    An air scrubber is an option as well. There are compact units that combine UV filtration with activated carbon filtration and photocatalytic disinfection. There are also larger air scrubbers that allow you to add high-efficiency particular air (HEPA) filtration to your HVAC system.

    Maintaining an optimal relative humidity (RH) is often a crucial component of good IAQ. If you experience high RH in summer, a whole-house dehumidifier may be the solution.

    A whole-house humidifier is an option if RH is too low in winter. Another IAQ solution is an energy recovery ventilator (ERV). An ERV is a whole-house fan that also reclaims heat energy and moisture.

    Whole-house air purification can trap:
    • Dust
    • Pollen
    • Pet dander
    • Mold and fungal spores
    • Volatile organic compounds
