Breathe easier with MACC Mechanical on your side.

Most people are unaware that the air quality inside their home can be a lot worse than the air quality outside it. Allergens such as pollen, mold spores, pet dander and dust mite feces can trigger asthma attacks, while airborne viruses, bacteria and other invisible particulates can cause colds or even death.

Because of these threats, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health. And these threats aren’t isolated to one type of building, either. Because newer and remodeled homes are better insulated and more energy efficient than older homes, air pollutants can become trapped and increase dramatically over time.

If you feel your health is being adversely affected by the air quality in your home, MACC Mechanical can help. Not only will our air quality experts clean all your ductwork to ensure source removal, we also specialize in the installation of home air purifiers of all types. While we offer solutions from some of the best purification manufacturers in the business, including Honeywell and Aprilaire, we can install any system you like.

Here are some systems to consider:

  • UV Air Purifiers. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation cleaners (also known as UV purifiers) represent a type of purification system designed to kill certain microscopic pollutants such as vegetative bacteria, viruses and mildew. These types of purifiers typically are installed in the ducts, near the cold air supply.
  • Home Air Filtration Systems. Air filter systems can collect particulates as small as 3 microns in diameter, which means they can remove a large majority (up to 95 percent) of the air pollutants in your home. These systems typically work in conjunction with existing home heating and cooling systems.
  • Whole House Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers. Controlling the humidity in your home can go a long way toward not only making your life more comfortable, but also eliminating some of the worst airborne pathogens and pollutants. Mold, mildew and dust mites thrive in high humidity, while low humidity can aggravate allergy symptoms and allow viruses to flourish.
