- Air Filtration Systems and Air Purifiers: Among all indoor air quality (IAQ) solutions, air filtration systems are one of the most popular choices. There are a variety of makes and models available, and the use of a high quality air filter is a great way to reduce the flow of dust, dander, and other allergens throughout the ductwork. Air purifiers take this even further—ask about our UV air purifiers, which attack microorganisms right from your ductwork before they even enter your air.
- Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers: The ideal relative humidity level in homes throughout Tampa, FL is between 30–50%. We’re all very familiar with the high humidity and discomfort issues that arise during the summer, which is where a dehumidifier will benefit you. Excessive dry air causes problems too, during other parts of the year, which is where a whole–house humidifier comes in handy.
- Energy Recovery Ventilators: When summer comes and you find yourself running your air conditioner on a constant basis for months, it can be hard to get access to fresh outside air. You certainly don’t want to open your windows on a 90 degree day or hotter! The energy recovery ventilator provides an efficient and effective way to overcome this problem, by ventilating stale air out of the home and bringing in fresh air.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Need a Whole-Home Air Purifier in Tampa?
The answer to this is, "probably, yes." Many homeowners believe that the air filter that comes standard in their HVAC system is enough to address any indoor air quality problem they might have. This is a bit of a misconception--more on that below.
A whole-home air purifier attracts and eliminates contaminants and allergens on a far larger scale than your HVAC air filter does, plus it attacks different types of pollutants. So you can rid your home of dust, dirt, viruses, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), smoke, pet dander, household cleaning fumes, bacteria and microorganisms, and much more.
How Often Do I Need to Change My Air Filter?
If we’re talking about your HVAC air filter, this should be changed every 1-3 months, depending on the type of air filter you have in place and the level of contaminants in your home. For instance, if you have a basic fiberglass air filter in your HVAC system and you have excessive dust and pet dander in the home, you’ll definitely want to check it every month, while a pleated filter will last a little longer.
What happens when an air filter gets too clogged up is that it restricts airflow, which forces your HVAC systems to run longer to try to compensate and reach the desired temperature on your thermostat. This exacerbates wear and tear, increasing repair needs and perhaps even shortening the lifespan of your air conditioner or heater.
What Is an Energy Recovery Ventilator?
An energy recovery ventilator, or ERV, is a system that pre-conditions stale air that’s sitting in your home to bring in fresh air. This means that instead of opening windows to get fresh air while your air conditioner runs--which is wasteful--you can get fresh air and cooled air at the same time.
When your home lacks this proper ventilation, you and your family can suffer from comfort issues as well as health issues. But a professionally installed and serviced ERV system allows you the well-ventilated and comfortable home you deserve!
