INDOOR AIR QUALITY  

On a central air conditioning and heating system, do you know the differences between an air filter and a high efficiency whole home air cleaner?

What about the benefits an air purification system or proper humidification?

 If you have an attached garage or any type of fossil fuel appliance, can you be certain that there is not any level of carbon monoxide in the home?

 air cleaners

  

Why is this important??? 

It is well documented that many people have unhealthy levels of indoor air pollution in their home which can cause or contribute to the development of respiratory problems, infections, and chronic lung diseases such as asthma. In addition, it can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea, and fatigue.

 AND

The Environmental Protection Agency lists indoor air pollution as one of the top five environmental threats to public health.  

The Solutions…

 

The first item that is beneficial to your indoor air quality is the installation of a high efficiency whole home air cleaner. B&B offers a wide variety of professionally installed air cleaners.                                                                   

BECAUSE

 A standard 1” fiberglass furnace filter is there for equipment protection. Its purpose is to keep the large particles of dust and dirt out of the HVAC equipment. This type of filter is not capable of capturing the very small particulate matter such as pollen, bacteria, mold spores, and other harmful contaminants that can trigger health problems. The one inch wide pleated type air filters are usually not recommended due to the problems they cause. They “load up” very quickly due to the small surface area and they create an excessive static pressure drop (or airflow restriction) which causes the heating and cooling system to not only work harder, but causes reduced efficiency and capacity.

What about an air purification system???

 

 

 

The difference between a whole home air cleaner and an air purification system is that an air cleaner traps particulate matter and an air purification system kills germs, viruses, and bacteria. Many people do not realize that some of today’s air purifiers using the radiant catalytic ionization technology have been proven to destroy 99.9% of all surface bacteria, viruses, and germs. This technology has been tested by various universities, agencies, and labs. These products also have a more tangible benefit of being very effective on eliminating odors.

 

Several of the air purifiers offered come with a 30 day money back guarantee. We feel so strongly about the effectiveness and your satisfaction, that if you are not satisfied within 30 days of the paid installation, B&B will return, remove the product and refund your money.

 

                                                                      

 

 

How does a humidifier help???

 

 

 

Proper humidification levels have numerous benefits. During the winter, an average heated home on a 20°F day will have a relative humidity indoors of about 10% without a humidifier. Proper indoor humidity in the winter makes you feel warmer. Remember, dry air will try to absorb moisture from anywhere that it can, including your body. The dry air will rapidly dry moisture from your skin causing you to feel colder. Dry air will also dry out the mucous membranes protecting your sinuses, which increases the risk for respiratory infections. Other negative effects of dry air are: static electricity, dry and itchy skin, chapped lips, throat dryness and irritation, wood floors, trim and furnishings shrink, dry out and crack.

 

This chart below shows the health benefits of maintaining a humidity level ranging from between 35% and 50% RH.

 

                                             

 

Let B&B Air Conditioning & Heating Service Company determine which type of humidifier would best fit your application and humidification requirements. If you already have a humidifier, please remember, humidifiers are not effective unless they are cleaned and serviced on a regular basis.

 

 

 

Should we be concerned with carbon monoxide???

 

 

 

Our advice is please don’t take a chance with your health and safety by possible exposure to unsafe high or low levels of carbon monoxide. It is such a concern that it is now being implemented as a code requirement in many jurisdictions when pulling a permit for any reason, on any new or existing home. This code requirement applies to any home that has a fuel fired appliance or an attached garage. B&B Air Conditioning & Heating Company is pleased to offer the CO-Experts model 2014 low level CO Monitor because it exceeds the standards of a typical CO detector. The Environmental Protection Agency states that the maximum allowable CO exposure is not to exceed 9PPM for 8 hours. Most fire Departments require their firefighters to put on their breathing apparatus if they encounter CO levels of 35 ppm or greater. A typical CO detector purchased at a warehouse store will not alarm at 70 PPM in the first hour and can be delayed up to 4 hours.

B & B Now Offers Energy Efficient Automatic Standby Generator Systems For Your Home

 

Everyone residing in Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia Areas are no stranger to the agony of power outages. No matter what season we are in, the loss of air conditioning, heating, refrigerators and lights are enough to make anyone's day miserable. Aside from the general discomfort of not having power, an outage can also cost homeowners a lot of money by wasting food due to refrigerators/freezers not working. During the winter time having no power could cause water pipes to freeze and break causing expensive water damage and plumbing repairs.

A standby backup generator can restore power back to your home automatically in seconds during a power outage.

Here's how it works:

  • The generator transfer switch monitors utility voltage from the power company line.
  • When a power outage occurs, the transfer switch signals the generator to activate.
  • Within seconds the generator provides power to the home.
  • When the utility power has returned, power transfers back to the utility source and the generator automatically turns off.

BB Installed Generator

 

Since each home is unique, different in size and energy consumption, an audit of the home and appliances you would like active in a power outage is essential for a properly sized generator. While some generators will only target essential circuits, others can cover the entire home. Whichever the homeowner chooses to install, installation of a home generator will save homeowners and their families the frustration of being in the dark when a power outage occurs. 

B & B Air Conditioning and Heating offers installation, service, and repair of whole house Generators.  We also offer coverage under our Maintenance-Service Agreements for home generators which include an inspection and labor for any breakdowns.  A home Generator system provides permanent backup protection from power outages for your home, your family and gives you a peace of mind.

 If you are interested in having a home generator installed or having your existing home generator serviced click to schedule service and/or an estimate for a new home generator. Also feel free to contact the B & B office in your service area to speak with one of our service managers.
