At Resicon, we regularly install, repair, and maintain heating and cooling systems as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. And while they highly contribute to good indoor air quality, especially air conditioners, they can't reduce the amount of pollutants and allergens circulating inside your home or building on their own.
It is common to question the necessity of an air purifier. Many people don't have one in their home or business due to not understanding the full benefits a unit can offer. The advantages of having an air purifier in your Tacoma, WA, area home or business are tremendous. It helps you and everyone in the vicinity breathe easier.
Why Are HVAC Filters Not Enough?
Air filters are a popular choice for capturing indoor air pollutants, but they have their drawbacks. The more pollutants the filter can trap, the less efficient it is to run in your system.
That is why we prefer to treat residential and commercial properties with air purifiers instead. You will be hard pressed to find a contractor with as many licenses and certifications as we hold. We have served many government contracts through the State of Washington, meaning that our licensing requires an unmatched level of expertise.
Why Have an Air Purifier?
Heating and air conditioning systems, as well as newer homes and buildings, are designed as airtight, thereby reducing energy consumption. Unfortunately, the home or building traps pollutants in the air and does not allow them to escape.
It's been said the air quality inside is two to five times worse than the air outside, and in the worst-case scenarios, 100 times worse. Our indoor air quality experts offer complete air purifier installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance services to ensure you experience the best air quality possible.
Building materials, cooking fumes, carpets, heating oil, pet dander and hair, pressed wood furniture, machinery, pesticides, and tobacco smoke all contribute to indoor air pollution, as well as dust, mold, bacteria, and pollen. Installing an air purification system aids in eradicating these pollutants affecting your air quality.
We Only Recommend the Best
We only offer the highest quality as well as the most effective and efficient systems to achieve excellent indoor air quality. Our air quality professionals are well trained on installing, repairing, and maintaining many different types of systems to help improve your indoor air quality, whether for your home or business.
Air purifiers attach to your existing heating system, requiring installation by a professional like one of our highly trained installation specialists. Filters vary in material and type, depending on your particular needs. The filters stop pollutant particles from passing through your ventilation system and into your home's or business's air for you to breathe.
How Does Air Purifier Installation Work?
Depending on whether your needs are residential or commercial will naturally impact your installation process. In general, an air purifier attaches to your existing forced-air and heating system. It requires installation by an installation specialist, who positions it between your furnace and the air return duct. This filters and purifies all of the air flowing into the furnace. Filters vary in material and type depending on your specific needs.
What About the Filter?
All the air flowing through your air purifier runs through a filter, so it can stop the pollutant particles from passing through your ventilation system and into the air you breathe.
Again, depending on whether your need for an air filter is residential or commercial, there are different types of filters for air purifiers. Customarily, the different types of air purifier filters range from HEPA (high energy particulate air) filters to carbon filters to pre-filters to gas filters.
Each has a different filtering purpose and traps specific sizes and types of particles. Be sure to speak with one of our experts about what type of air filter your air purifier takes, or will take, so you can do your part to keep the unit clean and operating optimally. You want to stay up to date with your unit's routine maintenance to keep your purifier operating efficiently and to prevent unexpected repairs.
What About Air Purifier Repairs and Maintenance?
For homes and businesses with existing air purifiers, we offer trusted air purifier service and repair solutions. Our indoor air quality professionals will test your air quality to ensure the system is operating at its peak.
We perform diagnostic testing to locate any areas within the air purifier that could be overused or not properly operating. Fast and reliable repairs are made in these situations to return the desired prime air quality.
If your air purification system is outdated, we may recommend a complete replacement. With the advancements in the HVAC industry, we can offer suggestions on air purifier models to better meet your needs. From quiet technology to large-space operation, the air purifiers available are diverse and so are the benefits.
To ensure an air purification system lasts as long as possible, our experts provide air purifier maintenance services. We recommend a complete air purifier maintenance service is performed at least every six months, or more depending on our residential or commercial needs, when the air purifier is utilized regularly.
Changing the purifier's filter at regular intervals is a must. Our knowledgeable experts can explain the process to you or set up return services for these cleaning needs.
