Indoor air quality testing in Grand Rapids, MI for your home can alert you to possible pollutants and contamination in the air you are breathing throughout the day. It may surprise you to learn that the air inside your home can often be more polluted than that outside. Modern homes are relatively airtight, so unless you open your windows frequently, there is little air circulation to disperse pollutants and improve air quality. Bel-Aire Heating & Cooling is here to help you monitor and improve your home’s indoor air quality, so read on to learn more about working with us.

    Indoor Air Quality Specialists

    Bel-Aire Heating & Cooling offers a whole home indoor air quality approach not only increases the quality of the air within your home, but it also makes a substantial reduction in your homes energy use, which in turn saves you money on your energy bills. Having a high-end filter is not enough. The primary purpose of a furnace / central air filter is to protect the HVAC equipment, not to improve indoor air quality, as many homeowners have been led to believe. Some of these expensive furnace / HVAC filters even restrict air flow across the heat exchanger or evaporator, reducing the unit’s efficiency, raising your home utility bills and possibly causing furnace damage due to overheating or causing the AC unit to ice up and not cool properly.

    Ventilators

    New homes and some older homes can be tightly built to save energy, but this can often times have a negative impact on homes without proper ventilation. An airtight home provides no way to refresh the indoor environment. An ideal solution for tightly sealed homes is a Health Climate Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV). The ERV system exchanges stale air from inside with fresher outdoor air. To ensure absolute comfort, the system captures heat from contaminated air before it is moved outdoors.
