Many Calgary-area homeowners depend on clean, breathable air that is light and free of toxins, especially those who may live with respiratory issues or illnesses that impact their breathing abilities. We at Distinct Heating & Cooling know the importance of keeping the air clean and refreshing, which is why our journeyman technicians focus on optimizing your indoor air quality when performing HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) services. To better help our valued customers appreciate the importance of clean indoor air, we’ve compiled a few key pieces of information that every homeowner should be aware of.

Health Hazard Prevention

Without adequate air filtration such as with an HVAC system or humidifier, we are far more susceptible to environmental health hazards. Radon gas pollutants that cause lung cancer, second-hand smoke, and combustion pollutants such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen monoxide are common in homes, particularly if they don’t have tight seals from outside air or internal air filtration. In fact, according to EPA analysis, levels for many pollutants can be anywhere between 2 and 5 times higher indoors than outdoors.

This is because construction quality has improved 10-fold over the years. Because we are so skilled at sealing our homes from the outdoor elements, we are also inadvertently decreasing the amount of natural air circulation between our homes and the outdoors. While general “leakage” used to “clean” our homes’ air of toxins from common household cleaning products, paint, flooring glue, and other air pollutants, we now rely on effective air filtration for this more than ever.

Air filtration systems for your Calgary home

Indoor Air filtration in Calgary — better for the environment, better for your family

Air ventilators and filtration systems from Distinct Heating & Cooling can help reduce concentrations of micro-organisms such as mildew, mold, bacteria, and viruses from your HVAC system in addition to cleaning the air and helping to control dust and odour levels in your home.

A Heat Recovery Ventilator works with your Calgary heating and cooling system to exchange stale indoor air for fresh outside air at regular intervals. Whereas an air filtration system cleans the air of particulates and keeps dust and dirt out of vital equipment. This ensures your heating and cooling system performs at peak efficiency, which can help reduce maintenance and energy costs.

Does your home need air ventilation or filtration? Consider this:

  • A single person inhales more than 3,500 gallons of air on a daily basis.
  • 94% of all respiratory problems are attributable to polluted air, whether from dust, smog, cigarette smoke etc.
  • There are more than 3 million diagnosed cases of asthma in Canada; about 1 in 10 are children under 18.
  • Approximately 10-15% of the population is allergic to cat or dog danger, another common household allergen.
  • Dust mites are a common household allergen. More than 40,000 dust mites live in a single ounce of dust.
  • Did you know household dust is partly composed of dead skin cells? A single person sheds up to 700,000 skin flakes daily.

Air ventilation benefits:

  • Quietly brings in fresh, clean air from the outside and removes stale inside air.
  • Puts dust, pollen, mould, bacteria, viruses, and other airborne pollutants where they belong — outside your home.
  • Your family enjoys better health.
  • People with pet allergies breathe a lot easier.
  • Asthma sufferers can enjoy a remarkable amount of relief.
