Keeping yourself warm in the midst of extremely cold weather can be as easy as running your furnace. However, maintaining indoor air quality is a little bit more challenging. Since natural ventilation is not an option during this time of year, you will need other ways to keep the air in your home healthy.

Marsh Heating Air Conditioning offers air purification systems that effectively eliminate airborne contaminants, allowing you to breathe in nothing but clean, safe, and healthy indoor air. We are your total HVAC company in Eden Prairie MN.

Overview

The cold weather brings several unpleasant health concerns, such as dry, cracked skin, influenza, pneumonia, asthma attacks, and many others. One of the main causes of these problems is dry air coming from the outside, which finds its way into your home. Even if you have a perfectly “tight” home, it can still allow cold outside air in through your doors, windows, and other openings.

To combat the effects of dry, unhealthy indoor air this winter, you might want to take a look at these indoor air quality systems.

Healthy Climate® Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV)

If you live in a region with extreme weather, a Healthy Climate® Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) can help channel heat from inside your home and transfer it to incoming fresh air from outside. This system allows your home to have greater comfort and helps control condensation during winter. It moves stale air from your house and keeping your indoor air comfortable at the same time. This process makes sure no energy is wasted.

Lennox PureAir™ S Air Purification System

The PureAir S is Lennox’s most advanced air purification system that monitors the life of the filter and purifier with UVA light and communicates directly with the iComfort S30 Ultra-Smart Thermostat. It notifies you and the service professional when it is time to replace the filter and UVA light, at the exact times or before when replacement is due.

It is an effective solution for preserving the quality of the air in your home as it provides highly effective air filtration without using much electricity.

PureAir™ S is an air purification system that cleans the air in every room throughout the home. Many air-cleaning systems filter out particles. Some destroy germs, and some attack odors. The PureAir™ S Air Purification System is a smart whole-home solution that combats all three major types of indoor air contaminants. It removes 99.9 percent of mold spores, pollen, dust, and pet dander. It eliminates more than 95 percent of fine particles absorbed by the lungs down to 0.3 microns. (One micron equals approximately 1/25,000 of an inch.)

Healthy Climate Whole-Home Power Humidifier

Maintaining the right moisture levels at home is quite challenging during this time of year. Therefore, having a whole-home humidifier is essential. The Healthy Climate Whole-Home Power Humidifier creates a healthier home and lessens skin irritations, sore throats, and respiratory problems. It protects your home and furnishings by reducing the risk of wood warping and cracking. Also, it provides an easier-to-use and less intrusive option to portable units, with no need to continually fill and clean units. Its built-in fan allows the humidifier to circulate humidified air, even when your heating system is idle. According to national studies, this process helps keep relative humidity levels between 30% and 60%—the perfect range for optimal comfort and health.

Healthy Climate High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filtration System

A Healthy Climate® HEPA system removes nearly all allergy-aggravating contaminants, including some of the smallest particles and bacteria. This is the same HEPA technology used in medical laboratories and hospitals.

Its three-step filtration process includes:

  • Pre-filter that captures large dirt and dust particles
  • A HEPA filter that captures nearly all remaining particles and germs
  • A charcoal/carbon filter that removes odors and chemical vapors. An optional carbon canister is available for enhanced absorption.
