Indoor Air Quality
Is the quality of your home's indoor air a priority to you?
What you CAN'T see, CAN hurt you.
Study after study shows that as homes become more energy efficient, more contaminants become trapped inside. The air we breathe in our home is loaded with pollutants like pollen, dust, pet hair, dander, dust mites, tobacco smoke, spores, and disease-causing bacteria. Ron's Refrigeration offers products and services to keep your home breathing clean.
Aprilaire Air Cleaners
Today's new homes are incredibly energy efficient. One of the ways they achieve that efficiency is by creating "tighter" homes that trap air inside. And chances are, the trapped air contains millions of microscopic particles that can be annoying, irritating, and downright harmful to you and your family's health.
The best way to rid your tight home of contaminated air is with a whole-house air cleaner.
If you have central forced air heating or cooling, you can get a whole-house air cleaner to fit into the return duct, allowing the air that circulates throughout your entire house to be cleaned. There are several types of whole-house air cleaners. Let us help you find the one that best fits your comfort needs.
Your home should be the place of ultimate comfort for you and your family. But if you aren't adding moisture to your air during the heating season, chances are it's one of the driest places on earth! When you heat your home, the indoor air's relative humidity can plummet to only a fraction of what is recommended. It's this "desert dryness" that makes you feel uncomfortable, can cause physical aggravations and static shocks, takes moisture from your home and its furnishings, and decreases the energy efficiency of your home.
The Aprilaire Automatic Humidifier Ends Indoor Dryness
Eliminate parched, dry air throughout your entire home with the Aprilaire Automatic Humidifier. As the world's first computer-equipped, completely automatic humidifier, it features exclusive automatic "no-touch" computer operation that eliminates the need for constant manual adjustments. As a matter of fact, tests show that the Aprilaire Automatic Humidifier is three times more accurate and four times more reliable than other humidifiers.
Aprilaire Air Exchangers Help Your Home Breathe Easy
Here's a startling fact: According to the EPA, concentrations of toxic pollutants can be up to ten times greater inside a home than outside, even in our smoggiest cities. And today's homes, while more energy efficient, can trap contaminants like formaldehyde, radon, and household chemicals inside.
The Aprilaire Fresh Air Exchanger is a way to effectively exchange fresh outside air for stale inside air. The exclusive EnergyMax Transfer Core uses the heat of indoor air to warm up the incoming cold fresh air, recovering about 77% of the energy. In summer, warm fresh air passes near outgoing conditioned air, cooling it down. The beauty of the EnergyMax Transfer Core is its use of enthalpy technology. This technology enables the transfer of moisture as well as heat. Aprilaire Installation The popularity of the enthalpy-type air exchanger has increased all over the country because of its superior ability to control humidity levels in both winter and summer.
The result is greater indoor comfort at the lowest possible cost. Noise is also reduced, since you can enjoy fresh air without leaving windows open. Plus, a cleaner, safer home is a home with greater value. While the ideal time to install Aprilaire is during construction, the fresh air exchanger can be added to any existing heating/cooling system.
