Indoor Air Quality
Greater Phoenix Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Services
Most homeowners worry more about outdoor pollution than airborne contaminants inside their homes, but since Americans spend around 90 percent of our time indoors, building air quality is critical to health. According to the EPA, some indoor pollutant levels are two to five times higher than those outdoors. Homes built to be airtight for energy efficiency are at an even higher risk for poor air quality.
At Larson, we care as much about your air quality as we do your comfort. The air circulating in your home contains allergens, molds, chemicals, bacteria, dust mites and other contaminants. Over time, these pollutants may cause sinus inflammation, aggravated asthma symptoms, headaches and more. To help you breathe easy, we install and service air purifiers, home ventilation systems and air filtration systems from industry-leading manufacturers.
Indoor Air Quality Expertise
You may need air quality equipment if you notice symptoms like these while spending time indoors:
- Respiratory problems
- Asthma & allergy symptoms
- Headaches or migraines
- Flu-like symptoms
Larson is proud to provide Scottsdale & Phoenix customers with the following IAQ products and services:
Air Purification & Air Filtration
Whole-house IAQ equipment works with your home’s HVAC system to filter and destroy contaminants before they make their way into the air you breathe. Air filtration systems use media and electronic filters to capture pollutants. Air purifiers target and remove smaller particles that escape the filter.
During your home performance checkup, Larson’s air quality specialists will evaluate indoor air quality and ventilation systems. In some cases, we may recommend air purifiers or air filtration systems to protect your health and enhance indoor comfort.
Carbon Monoxide Detection
Called a “silent killer,” carbon monoxide is sneaky. It’s an odorless, colorless gas that may not be detected until someone in your home is sick. Newer, high-efficiency sealed homes are at higher risk for CO buildup because the tight joints trap gases and pollutants inside. Larson provides carbon monoxide testing that lowers your family’s risk of CO exposure.
Heat & Energy Recovery Ventilators
Airtight, energy-efficient homes keep contaminants from escaping and lack the ventilation required for optimal air quality. Larson’s air quality professionals install and service heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) and energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) that improve indoor ventilation. HRV systems transfer heat from stale exhaust air to incoming fresh air to enhance winter comfort and air quality. ERV systems are ideal for warmer climates since they transfer heat and humidity from incoming air to outgoing air.
Larson-installed ventilator benefits include:
- Minimized energy waste
- Elimination of stale, stuffy or contaminated air
- Fresher air without production of ozone
- Balanced ambient humidity levels (40 to 60 percent)
Similar to energy recovery ventilators, exhaust fans help your home rid itself of humidity, contaminants
