Is Your Home Making You Sick?
When it comes to indoor climate, most people focus on air conditioning and heating. Those things are important, but they are not the only factors that you should be considering with regard to your home’s air. There are a wide range of different issues that can change your indoor air quality, and some of them can make it quite a bit worse if you’re not careful.
Indoor Air Quality is one of the top health concerns of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and their findings have been supported by the American Lung Association, The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and other organizations concerned about our health and indoor air environment.1
Since the early 70s, homes have been built tighter to conserve energy by keeping cold air out in the winter and hot air out in the summer. While this does conserve energy, it also contributes to "Tight Home Syndrome". Tight Home Syndrome locks in dirty, sick and stale air and contributes to indoor air pollution.

Indoor Air Quality Cleaning System Installation
One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning Indoor Air Quality experts can convert your heating and cooling system into a whole house Air Treatment Center. To control these pollutants that are injurious to your health, advanced air cleaning systems like MicroPower Guard® filters are designed to remove the smallest particles from the air; while the OxyQuantum® UV sterilization systems will help control germs and organic odors.2 Most store-bought filters cannot remove these smallest of allergens and have no capability of having any effect on germs and gases.
Our technicians can share with you whole-house Air Treatment Center options to clean, disinfect and deodorize the air in your home 24 hours a day, naturally and without chemicals. Then you can decide which best fits your concerns and needs.
Duct Work Cleaning
The EPA recommends that you have your air ducts, heating and cooling systems inspected first by a professional heating and cooling contractor. If your technician discovers that your air ducts have substantial visible mold, dust, dirt, and other contaminants or a musty odor, they may recommend duct cleaning. This is especially important if someone in your household suffers from asthma, allergies, or other symptoms that may be related to indoor air pollution.
Air Filters and Purifiers
Air filtration and purification systems are designed to remove airborne contaminants from the home’s air supply. They use a variety of methods to do this, from simple mesh filters to the ionization of pollutants. Ask the professionals at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning about which air quality system is best for your home.
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers are used to keep your home’s humidity levels in check, either by adding or removing moisture from the air. If your air is chronically dry or moist, it’s a good idea to look into installing a humidifier or dehumidifier.
Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators
These systems allow fresh air to flow into your home, without compromising climate control. This helps to prevent the buildup of airborne contaminants, among other benefits.
