    Effective Indoor Air Quality Solutions

    There are many different types of whole-house air filtration in West Des Moines. Among the most popular is activated carbon or charcoal. This substance absorbs odors but also harmful gases and chemicals. Homeowners can choose an HVAC filter with activated charcoal. You can also add a dedicated filter on either the supply or the return side of the system.

    If you want to reduce the presence of viruses and bacteria in the home, HVAC UV lights are effective. UV-C is a germicidal light that neutralizes pathogens. We can install them in your ducts where airflow is subtle. This helps to ensure longer exposure to the germicidal light.

    An air scrubber is an alternative form of whole-house air purification. Some of these are compact units that house UV lamps with the added ability to charge molecules. Those molecules can then neutralize impurities elsewhere in your home both in the air and on surfaces. There are also larger air scrubbers that hold activated carbon and a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter.

    You may want to schedule air balancing. We’ll test the static air pressure of your system’s air handler. We can advise you about improving the minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) rating of your HVAC filter for better air quality. Our team can also determine any blockages or leakage. Potential solutions include duct cleaning, aerosol-based duct sealing, and new duct insulation.

    Through personalized air purification, we can help you trap several problem substances.
    • Fine particulate matter
    • Fungal and mold spores
    • Pollen and other allergens
    • Toxic chemicals and gases
    • Dust, dust mites, and dust mite eggs
