Lake Forest Residents Breathe Easier with Our Indoor Air Quality Products & Services

At Ireland Heating & Air Conditioning, we work to make sure all of our systems are quiet and energy-efficient, but did you know that sometimes there’s too much of a good thing? As home construction has improved over recent years to keep the sound and temperature of the outside world out, the quality of the air inside homes has decreased. Every time you cook, clean, or even just breathe, carbon dioxide and other harmful chemicals are released into the air.

Previously, these pollutants would have been taken care of naturally as fresh air came in through the edges of windows and under exterior doors. Newer homes are sealed so well that there is no longer natural circulation and extra help is needed to keep inside air healthy. Ireland Heating & Air Conditioning is here to lend a hand. As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, we carry a wide selection of indoor air quality systems to meet your needs.

Indoor Air Quality Systems

Air Cleaners and Air Purifiers

Air cleaners and air purifiers work to remove various types of pollutants from your home’s air. They work similarly to your air conditioner’s filter, but often have a higher level of filtration, and they also run at all times instead of just when you need heating and cooling. In addition to particle filtration, cleaners and purifiers that absorb gases and use UV light to destroy bacteria, viruses, and mold are also available.

Air Humidifiers

Humidity is almost as important as temperature in terms of comfort. Dry winter air feels cooler and is generally uncomfortable. In the summer, high humidity can make the inside temperature feel warmer and also creates a risk of mold and mildew. Your air conditioner dehumidifies the air as it cools, but if you don’t run it frequently, you may want to consider both a humidifier and dehumidifier for year-round comfort.

Ventilators

Ventilators help provide circulation in homes that are too tightly sealed to have natural ventilation. They draw in and filter outside air while pumping out indoor air and the pollutants that collected in it. To keep from increasing your heating and cooling costs, heat exchanger models are available that minimize the temperature difference between the indoor and outdoor air by passing them by each other so that heat transfers to the cooler air and both the inflow and outflow are roughly the same temperatures.
