Our Indoor Air Quality Solutions in Birmingham

At Aux Home Services, we make improving your indoor air quality easy with expert advice and solutions. A simple upgrade to your existing heating or cooling system can yield large improvements in your home or business’s indoor air quality. Our trained professionals will evaluate your HVAC system and work with you to determine the best solutions for your building’s layout and needs. The most common air quality solutions we can install, repair & maintain are:

  • HEPA Filters: High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters trap contaminants to stop them from being circulated through a building’s air.
  • Germicidal UV Lamps: Using filters to clean your air can remove pollutants, dust, and pet dander, but many microorganisms, including viruses, are so small that they can pass through the filters. Germicidal UV lamps use UV light to kill harmful airborne particles.
  • Air Purifiers: Contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, and mold can lurk throughout your home’s air. For added peace of mind and cleaner indoor air, the team at Aux Home Services can add an air purifier, such as iWave, to your air conditioning system.  iWave air purifiers work by creating ions that target the pathogens, odor-causing particles, and other contaminants in your air.
  • Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers: Controlling the level of humidity in your home or business not only prevents mold, mildew, and bacteria growth, it also makes your building comfortable and eases the burden on your HVAC system.
  • Duct Cleaning: Your ductwork carries heated and cooled air to every room in your house or commercial building, so duct cleanings can greatly impact your indoor air quality. Over time, dirt, debris, dust, allergens, and other contaminants can build up in your ducts.

Indoor Air Quality FAQs

Why should I be concerned about indoor air quality?

Most of us are concerned about outdoor air quality, especially if we live near big cities or in areas prone to wildfires. However, EPA studies have found that pollutant levels inside can be two to five times higher than those outside. Most homes are relatively airtight and will circulate dust, pollutants, and contaminants continuously through the air.

How can I improve the indoor air quality in my home?

Controlling moisture and keeping humidity below 50% (and ideally between 30-50%) helps improve the indoor air quality in your home by reducing the chance of mold and mildew. Changing your air conditioner and heater’s air filters regularly also helps keep your air clean and your HVAC equipment running smoothly. Finally, adding special filters and UV lamps to your HVAC system adds an extra level of protection to boost your indoor air quality.

What is a MERV rating for air filters?

Minimum efficiency reporting value, or MERV, is a measure of a filter’s ability to capture larger particles between 0.3 and 10 microns. The higher the MERV rating, the better the filter is at trapping specific types of particles.

How often should I change my HEPA filter?

HEPA filters are dense, heavy-duty air filters, so they last longer than the regular filters on your furnace or AC unit. Typically, they only need to be replaced once or twice a year. Some types can last up to two years, but you should check the manufacturer’s recommendations to be sure.
