We’ve been serving Nassau County, Queens and Western Suffolk County for decades, and over those years we have grown to understand the needs of our customers when it comes to comfort equipment such as for indoor air quality. Our experts will thoroughly discuss your concerns such as humidity (or lack thereof), dust, germs, pet dander and odor control.

We’ll take that information and come up with an indoor air quality solution customized to your home and your needs. Here are some of the solutions we offer:
Air cleaning and purifying
There are multiple ways to help clean the air inside your home. Which you choose depends on your needs and your budget.
HEPA air cleaners. High-efficiency particulate air cleaning systems are great for a lot of common air quality issues. They can remove more than 99% of particulates from the air, including small particles and bacteria, as well as nearly all pollutants that aggravate allergies. Indoor pollutants HEPA air cleaning systems can remove include dust, mold and viruses. They’re also great for getting rid of bad smells like tobacco smoke and cooking odors.
Because HEPA air cleaning systems are sealed, those trapped particulates cannot bypass the filter and recirculate back into your home.
Ultraviolet (UV) air cleaners. These air cleaners use ultraviolet light to incinerate microbial particles, removing them from your home’s air. UV air cleaning systems are a great choice if someone in your home has breathing issues, asthma, allergies or other respiratory illnesses.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers
Humid air outside can lead to humid air inside. When the air is humid inside your home, it can make your indoor air uncomfortable and smell musty. It can also lead to the creation of unhealthy mold and mildew.
If your home is too dry, on the other hand, it can create other kinds of problems. Too-dry indoor air can make you more susceptible to allergies and colds. It can also damage items in your home such as wood floors and trim, electronics, art and furniture.
A whole-house humidifier, or dehumidifier, offers outstanding comfort. Using a whole-house humidity system is much more effective and efficient than portable units. They also do not require the daily cleaning and disinfecting that portable units need. Portable units also have a reservoir of standing water where microbial organisms can breed, adding pollutants to your home’s air.
Often, the air in your home is drier during the winter. This is especially true if you use a furnace. By using a whole-house humidifier, the air in your home will feel warmer and more comfortable, so you can set your thermostat to a lower temperature. You’ll stay comfortable while cutting your heating costs! That moister air also helps reduce dry skin.
