INDOOR AIR QUALITY

Indoor Air Quality

The quality of air indoors is a concern for many homeowners in Ontario. COMFORT GURUS has the right solutions that will circulate clean and fresh air throughout your home. With most people spending up to 90% of their time inside, the quality of the air is a priority. The increase in the manufacture of energy efficient homes means that not much air from the outdoors can get in. This causes a reduction in the quality of the air if proper air cleaning systems are not installed. According to the EPA, the air indoors is at least 5 times more polluted than the air outside. We can assist you with improving your indoor air quality.


HERE ARE SOME INDOOR AIR QUALITY FACTS WE NEED TO DEAL WITH


  • People spend approximately 90% of their time indoors
  • Airborne contamination exposure is significant
  • More than 50%+ of all office buildings/complexes have a contaminated HVAC air delivery system. This includes, ventilation, heating and air conditioning
  • Humans inhale more than 3,500 gallons of air every day
  • Fact: Kids inhale more particles than teens and/or adults
  • Poor IAQ makes up more than 94% of all respiratory problems
  • According to Statistics Canada, 8.5% of the population (aged 12 and over) have been
    diagnosed as having asthma (2010)

  • This rate is even higher when you look at youth and children in Canada: 11.7% aged 12-19 years
    reported that they had been diagnosed as having asthma and 15.6% aged 4 – 11 years

  • One ounce of dust contains 40k dust mites. Yikes!
  • 10-15% of Canadians are allergic to their cat or dogs dander
  • Alarming: Humans shed a disgusting about of skin flakes every day – 700,000/day


Indoor air can actually become a health hazard. Over-exposure to microbes and other biological pollutants may even lead to grave illness or even death in some cases. We are the GURUS for all of your indoor air quality and Comfort needs. 









           Opening a window can make your air feel less stuffy, but this isn’t practical during the hotter and colder months of the year, plus it              invites pollen and other allergens into your home. A heat-recovery ventilator (HRV) helps keep your air fresh without creating a                    potentially uncomfortable situation.

           While stale air from your house is moved outside, air circulated inside your home is kept comfortable, and no energy is wasted. 

        Benefits:

  • ​Reduced Energy Consumption
  • Improved Indoor Environment
  • Reduced Environmental Impact

           When you go to your home improvement store for a new air filter, it might be tempting to just find the cheapest type that fits your              Air system and go with it. But there’s more to purchasing an air filter than cost. Like furnaces and air conditioners themselves, the              key to finding the right air filter is in balancing cost and efficiency.
           Most heating and cooling systems still use a basic air filter. These filters were originally designed to protect the equipment and not              the people served by the equipment. The average air filter is only capable of removing 3–5% of the particles that pass through it.                Today, however, there are several types of permanent air filters available in various efficiencies that can help you filter the air in                  your home. If you suffer from allergies, asthma, hay fever or other breathing difficulties, there is an air filter that can help you. We              can even provide you with the same type of air filter used in hospital operating rooms.

         Types of Filteration systems COMFORT GURUS offer: 

  • High-Efficiency Media Cleaners (MERV 8 - 16)
  • Complete Air Purification systems
  • High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filtration System

           A whole house humidifier can provide the humidity your home needs during the winter months. Although your furnace provides                much needed warmth, it can dry out the interior of your home which causes many different health conditions. Excessive dry air can            result in itchy skin, cracked lips, sore throat, coughs, bloody noses, and other conditions. We offer whole house humidifiers to keep            the air inside of your home healthy.
