Western Heating & Cooling How Can We Make Your Day More Comfortable?

Indoor Air Quality Services in Portland

Helping Washington County Families Breathe Easier

Here in Portland, homeowners and businesses alike rightfully concentrate on keeping their space warm in the winter and cool in the summer. But there’s more to the equation than just temperature control. Humidity can be stifling in the summer, while dry air in the winter can lead to cracked lips and increased colds. Pollen and dust in the air present a risk to anyone with sensitive lungs, and heat build-up in your attic and other spots can wreak havoc on your household comfort levels.

But there’s good news. A quality indoor air product installed and maintained by the pros at Western Heating & Cooling can do wonders for addressing these issues. Depending upon your needs, they can lower (or raise) the humidity, eliminate germs in your home, and even reduce the levels of dust and other contaminants in your system. Not only will that improve your overall quality of life, but it can help ease the strain on your heater and air conditioner: lowering bills and extending the overall life of your HVAC system. Our friendly team of technicians is standing by to answer all your questions. Pick up the phone and call us today!

What Kinds of Indoor Air Quality Products Are There?

The term "indoor air quality" actually encompasses a number of different fields, from relative humidity levels to dust and pollen counts. Every home is different, both in terms of its physical parameters and in terms of the people who live there. You need a professional service that can cater to your unique needs instead of just offering a one-size-fits-all solution.

Different systems have different needs, and we can work with you to determine which filter or purifier is right for your home. For example, we often recommend that customers with ducted systems opt for the Air Scrubber. This offers air quality control in multiple ways, reducing contaminants with filtration systems as well as purifying the air with UV light. Those with a Mitsubishi ductless system, on the other hand, would be better served by a mini Air Scrubber, which accounts for the decreased amount of air it needs to move and offers greater efficiency in the space.

At Western Heating & Cooling, we’ll go through all your options with you, then help you select the right indoor air quality system for your needs. We’ll install it so that it fits perfectly with your existing heating and air conditioning system, and if you ever need repairs or maintenance, our trained crew can be there in a flash. Below is a quick breakdown of the various types of indoor air quality system available to you.

Air Filters

Air filters encompass a wide variety of products, from simple filters you can replace after a month or two to full–bore purification systems designed to rid your air of all manner of particles in your air. Which one you need depends on the specifics of your home, but all of them work at removing dust and other contaminants from the environment.

Air Purifiers

Traditional air filters do a decent job, but no matter how tight they are, they still leave tiny openings for dust to get through. An electronic air purifier, however, does the job even more thoroughly. As dust passes through an ionization chamber, it becomes charged and sticks to the sides of a collection plate, no exceptions.

Attic & Bath Fans

Attic and bath fans both work to keep your home more cool and comfortable. Attic fans help circulate the heated air that rises from your home, while bath fans work to reduce the amount of mold and bacteria growth in your bathroom (which often lacks other forms of proper ventilation).

Duct Sealing

Duct breaches can create big problems for your HVAC system, pulling conditioned air out or pulling unconditioned air in. They can be tough to track too since they exist in your crawlspaces or attic most of the time and don’t show overt signs of problems. A trained technician can perform duct sealing for you.

Exhaust Fans

Exhaust fans are normally found in your kitchen, where it can help disperse smoke or bad smells from cooking. They also appear in the bathroom and can be used anywhere in the home that’s prone to contaminants and unwanted smells. The pros at Western Heating & Cooling can provide sound advice on exhaust fans, as well as performing installation and repairs.

UV Air Purifier

A UV air purifier is designed specifically to remove germs, viruses, and bacteria from your home. The UV light stretches across the apex to your heating and cooling ducts, and as the system runs, all of the air in your home gradually passes through it. Germs and bacteria are instantly killed, leaving your home cleaner and healthier than before.

Air Scrubbers

An air scrubber is a portable air filtration system that removes particles, gases, and chemicals from the air. Air scrubbers draw in impurities from the surrounding air and pass them through a series of filters to remove the contaminants.
