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.
High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters trap contaminants to stop them from being circulated through a building’s air. To be certified as HEPA, a filter must remove 99.7% of all particles greater than 0.3 microns from the air. These filters are often used in medical settings and laboratories, where stopping the spread of microorganisms and contaminants is crucial. They are also highly effective at filtering mold spores, dust, pollen, dust mite feces, and other unwanted particles from the 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. They have been proven to be so effective that they are used in hospitals and medical centers across the US. You can have this level of protection in your own home or place of business with a simple upgrade to your existing HVAC system by one of our expert technicians.
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. This technology mimics the naturally occurring phenomenon of lightning, waterfalls, and more, leaving your home with clean air without the use of harmful chemicals. iWave air purifiers need little to no ongoing maintenance, making them a worthwhile investment for your home.
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. High humidity leads to damp, stuffy conditions, and low humidity causes dry air and itchy skin. The team at Aux Home Services can help you achieve ideal humidity levels in your home or business for optimum comfort. We install whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers to help you manage this critical aspect of indoor air quality.
Your ductwork carries heated and cooled air to every room in your house or commercial building, so the cleanliness of your ducts greatly impacts your indoor air quality. Over time, dirt, debris, dust, allergens, and other contaminants can build up in your ducts. A professional duct cleaning from Aux Home Services will clean and disinfect your ducts so that clean air can flow freely throughout your home or business.

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.
