It’s unhealthy to breathe air filled with contaminants, but that’s precisely what most people in Northwest Florida do every day. Thanks in part to modern building practices, today’s tightly sealed homes are often more polluted than the air outside. Throwing open the windows to let fresh air inside helps reduce your exposure to pollutants. When you live in a humid subtropical climate, however, that’s not always an option. Learn how your trusted HVAC professionals can help improve your indoor air quality.

Ventilation Solutions

The exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathrooms help vent pollutants outside when you’re cooking and cleaning. Whole-house ventilation systems, on the other hand, circulate pre-filtered fresh air throughout your entire home. Some of the most efficient indoor air quality products available are energy recovery ventilators (ERVs). These modern feats of engineering use energy captured from outgoing air to bring in fresh air. They expel stale, unhealthy air in the process, allowing everyone in your household to breathe easier.

Duct Cleaning Services

Most homes in the Panhandle have central air systems that rely on ductwork to deliver conditioned air. Because the air distribution system operates under pressure, allergens, dust and grime are often drawn into ductwork. Leaky ducts allow pollutants to collect in the ducts too. Periodic professional cleaning is the only effective way to keep ductwork free of contaminants. At Lunsford Air Conditioning & Heating, our experienced duct cleaning specialists use industrial-grade equipment to rid ductwork of pollutants.
