Indoor Air Quality – Improve Home Air Quality | GasCo Services

Improve the Indoor Air Quality of your Ottawa Home

Experts agree that as our homes are made to be more energy efficient, the quality of our indoor air worsens.

Tightly built homes certainly may save on heating and cooling costs, but they also have direct negative consequences – they prevent the infiltration of fresh air and the evacuation of contaminated air. This results in negative health consequences for the people living or working inside. GasCo Residential Services offers many solutions for improving the air quality in your home.

1. Sanuvox UV light Systems

Ultra Violet (UV) light, whether produced from the sun or from mechanical means, has been proven to destroy airborne contaminants. Problems arise inside our homes when we inadvertently allow contaminant levels to build. Because the sun cannot effectively deal with the pollution inside our homes, it is wise to add mechanical air purification.

Contamination comes from many sources. Dangerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) off-gas from new carpets, furniture, paint, and other chemicals. Viruses and Bacteria are introduced by people and pets. Odors linger from bathrooms, cooking, or smoking. These airborne contaminants are often regularly distributed through your home by your heating or cooling system.

GasCo Residential Services is a registered Factory Authorized Dealer with Sanuvox Ultraviolet Air Treatment Systems. Sanuvox is an industry leader in Air purification systems and offers effective solutions for any home.

2. Humidifiers

Humidifiers play an important role in a home, particularly in the winter. Air in the winter tends to be more dry than in summer and this effect is often noticeable to a building’s occupants. Have you ever wondered why 70 degrees (F) ambient temperature in the home in winter may not feel warm enough? And conversely, why 70 degrees (F) ambient temperature in the home during the summer months may feel excessively warm? The answer is humidity. Humid air holds more heat than dry air. Adding a humidification system to your furnace will allow you to feel warmer at a given temperature, resulting in lower heating costs. As added benefits, proper humidification can protect furniture, musical instruments, and wood flooring from drying out/cracking as well as improving many respiratory conditions. Using suppliers such as Honeywell, and White Rogers, ask us how we can make your home more comfortable.

3. Heat Recovery Ventilators & Energy Recovery Ventilators

Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) and Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) replace stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air while offering humidity and heat loss control. Because houses today tend to be sealed up more tightly than in years past, these mechanical air exchange systems are becoming more and more necessary and have a significant impact on maintaining the good health of a building’s occupants.
