Air Purification

Make sure your family is breathing clean, healthy air. We install and maintain humidifiers, HRV’s, filtration systems, HEPA, UV filters, and all parts of your home’s clean air system.

We also provide diagnostics and recommendations for indoor air quality concerns to help you find the best system for your family.

We repair and service all makes and models including: Vanee, Venmar, Lifebreathe, General Aire, Aprilaire, and CleanEffects.

Types of installations

1
Whole Home Air Filtration: An air filter is just one part of your home’s indoor air quality.  It removes airborne particles like dust, pollen, and toxins from your home’s air.  We offer a full range from whole home media filters, HEPA filters, and electronic air cleaners.
2
Air Purification Systems (UV): A UV air purification system destroys bio-chemical contaminants, purifies the air, removes odors, and destroys VOC’s.  These systems are easily added to any new installation or existing system.
3
HRV/ERV Systems: An HRV system stands for Heat Recovery Ventilation. ERV stands for Energy-Recovery Ventilator. These systems provide fresh outdoor air while removing stale indoor air, while recovering the heat and moisture from your home keeping your indoor air fresh and comfortable.
4
Humidifiers: Humidifiers help maintain humidity levels in your home while reducing static electricity, and preserve furniture and valuables.  They help with dry winter air to improve the quality of your family’s indoor air.
 
What Does HEPA Stand For?

HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. A standard filter will trap hair and large particles which is sufficient if you don’t suffer from allergies, but will let particles through such as allergens and pet dander.

A HEPA filter is designed to trap 99.97% of particles 0.03 microns or larger. Essentially, this type of filter is much finer, and will trap smaller particles like pollen spores and even some bacteria.

Try a HEPA filter if you struggle with allergies to pollen or dust, or hay fever.

What is a UV Filter?

A UV sterilizer uses UVA and UVB rays to kill microorganisms like moulds, bacteria and even some viruses.  

Most advanced purification systems will:

  • Protect from airborne germs
  • Reduce common household odors
  • Help to alleviate allergies and flu symptoms
  • Help control asthma
  • Help you sleep better
  • Destroy VOCs
What Does MERV Stand For?

Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) is a standard that rates the overall effectiveness of air filters. Higher value MERV rating equates to finer filtration, meaning fewer dust particles and other airborne contaminants can pass through the filter.  Media filters typically provide cleaner air than standard 1” filters, while HEPA filters have the highest MERV rating.
