Olympia, WA Air Filters & Air Purifier Systems

Types of Indoor Air Contaminants
There are many different types of indoor air contaminants that can build up in your air supply:
- Pet dander
- Fumes from paint, car exhaust, gas range
The types of contaminants in your air will depend on several factors. For example, if you have pets then you’re going to have more pet dander and hair in your home’s air supply. And if someone in your family smokes, you may have more tobacco and smoke particulates. Fortunately, our team is skilled in assessing your indoor air quality to make product and service recommendations based on your unique needs.
Air Filter and Air Purifier Installation
If your home is suffering from poor indoor air quality, one of the best ways to improve it is to have a new air filtration system or air purifier installed. An air filtration system uses a mesh air filter to trap and lock larger indoor air contaminants like dust, dirt, and debris. The air filter is installed directly into your ductwork in order to trap contaminants as air passes through the system.
An air purifier is great for eliminating smaller, or even organic, contaminants from your indoor air. UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill biological contaminants like germs and mold spores in the air. This helps to prevent members of your household from getting sick, which is definitely a plus during cold and flu season!
Count On Us to Take Care of Your Air Filter or Air Purifier
Like any other piece of equipment, your air filter or air purifier will eventually break down and need to be fixed. Here are a few of the signs that you should watch for that could indicate that your system needs repair:
- Reduced efficiency: If you start to notice that your energy bills are increasing without an increase in usage it could mean that your air filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.
- Reduced comfort: If your home isn’t getting cool or warm enough it could be that your air filter is restricting the flow of air through your ductwork. This will result in less air getting into your home.
- Noises in your ductwork: Your air filter is most likely installed out of sight in your ducts. This can make it difficult to tell if something has gone wrong. But if you hear noises coming from your ductwork, it could mean that there is something wrong with your ducts.
