Indoor Air Quality Products We Recommend to Our Customers:
Indoor air quality products are important for every home. As we spend more and more time indoors the quality of our air has become an area of greater focus. With the rise of allergens and asthma, providing a clean air quality in our homes is vitally important to the health of those we love most!
Humidistat /Hygrometer (Humidity Monitor)
We recommend every home have a humidistat! Monitoring your home's humidity is vitally important to preventing mold and one of the most recommended items of indoor air quality products. Please note that many humidistats do not have alarms to notify you when your humidity is out of range. These recommended humidistats include visual and audible alarms to notify you. We recommend placing a humidistat on every level of your home.
Dehumidifier with Drain Hose
We recommend the use of dehumidifiers in areas of your home subject to elevated humidity, such as the basement. We recommend only dehumidifiers with a drain hose, as this is vitally important for maintaining consistent humidity reduction. Home humidifiers are to be used for everyday humidity regulation, making it a vital selection of your indoor air quality products. They do not have the capacity to remove moisture quickly enough in the event of water damage that is greater than 10 square feet. Professional grade dehumidifiers and monitoring are needed to ensure all contents are adequately dried before mold starts to form.
Humidity controllers are used for areas of your home that change humidity levels intermittently. Humidity controllers are to be used in conjunction with humidifiers or dehumidifiers to maintain optimal humidity levels.
HEPA Air Purifier
There are many air purifiers on the market to choose from. HEPA air purifiers are a necessity due to their high capacity to filter out allergens. We recommend HEPA air purifiers that filter up to 0.3 Microns for optimal air quality. Air purifiers should be purchased based on the square feet of area needed to be purified. We recommend air purifiers on each level of your home or a whole house air purifier installed with your HVAC system.
Whole House Humidifier
We recommend the installation of a whole house humidifier for residents of the Kansas City metro area. Due to our winters being very dry, many nasal and respiratory problems occur when the air is too dry in our homes. Maintaining the proper humidity level in your home is vital to the health of your family. During the spring and summer months, we recommend that you monitor your home's humidity level closely when using a whole house humidifier.
