Breathe Deep: Care for Your Air with Bryant Products
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental risks to public health. Research has shown that indoor air may be up to 100 times more polluted than outside air. We have a full line of indoor air quality products that can help your entire family breathe easier and experience greater respiratory health.
Poor air quality has been linked to a wide variety of health issues such as dry eyes and nasal passages, headaches, nausea, fatigue, asthma, and allergies.
Whole-House Air Purification Systems
These systems are installed as an integral part of your heating and cooling system, designed to capture and kill airborne contaminants down to one micron in size. They are 40 times more effective than a standard furnace filter.
Energy Recovery Ventilators
If your windows have pooling water, or the wood is icy or damp, high humidity is causing excess moisture in your home. An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) can balance the extremes in outdoor temperature and humidity, operating as both an exhaust fan and a fresh air supply fan. The result is ideal humidity and ventilation to protect your home and windows all year long.
Ultraviolet (UV) light is designed to kill bacteria and mold that live inside your air conditioner. These tiny microorganisms thrive in the dark and moist environment around your indoor coil. By installing UV lights there, these tiny particles—as well as others that pass through your air conditioner—are killed before they can circulate throughout your home.
Too much humidity in your home can cause many problems such as triggering allergies, causing musty odors, and making you feel muggy and uncomfortable. Dehumidifiers are the perfect solution—they suck excess moisture out of the air to create a comfortable environment while reducing mold, mildew, and other contaminants that love the heavy air.
At the same time, you don’t want indoor air that’s too dry. When moisture levels drop low in the wintertime, humidifiers balance it out (ideally, your humidity should sit between 30 and 60 percent). That added humidity helps soothe dry and itchy skin, nose bleeds, and frequent colds. You’ll also feel warmer with these systems without turning up the thermostat—they’ll even help prevent your wooden furniture from cracking.
