Indoor Air Quality & Duct Replacement or Enhancement
You may wonder why anyone in Wichita would need Duct Replacement service. The fact is that when ductwork gets old, it can greatly reduce the indoor air quality inside the home. Old ducts can also affect the energy efficiency of the heating and air conditioning equipment.
Sometimes a duct system just needs to be sealed and reinsulated. It's not uncommon for shifting to take place from the house settling to where the duct connections loosen. Sometimes it's a problem with rodents chewing their way in, or improper installation that you never know about until years down the line.
Duct replacement, repair, or replacement can solve many indoor air quality problems. Here's some information on how you can improve your indoor air quality in Wichita.
What You Need to Know About Indoor Air Quality
While it may be hard to believe, the average person spends up to 90% of their time inside. While it was once thought that indoor air is cleaner than the polluted air outside, we now know this is not true. The air you are exposed to inside a building can be anywhere from two to 100 times as polluted as the air outside.
Among the top five listed environmental dangers is indoor air pollution, and this is data retrieved from the Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA. This has become more apparent as the rise in the percentage of children dealing with allergies and asthma continues. You may think your home is a safe haven for healthy air but you could be dangerously mistaken.
Ways To Improve Indoor Air Quality
The good news is that you do have choices available in order to improve your indoor air quality. At Ball Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. alone we offer three very popular methods to use in order to counteract this concern:
- 1. Duct Replacement & Enhancement
- 2. Automatic Humidification Systems
- 3. Air Cleaners
Did you know that the air you breathe in your home travels and recirculates 5-7 times each day through the HVAC system? An air cleaner, as the name implies, is used to eradicate detrimental pollutants from the air. This can include bacteria, fungi, and allergens.
An automatic humidification system is installed directly into your HVAC system to automatically balance the moisture in the air. The humidity balance can be thrown off when the furnace dries the air too much or humidity seeps in from outdoors.
