Improve air quality

Pollen, dust, pet dander and of course viruses are all part of your indoor air quality. Are these circulating inside your home? Are they noticeably affecting your and your family? What are some of the ways you can improve your indoor air quality?

Going outside for some fresh air could be a better idea than you might think. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, scientific evidence tells us that air in homes can be more seriously polluted than outdoor air. Considering that most Americans spend up to 90 percent of each day indoors-more than half of that time at home-you may be experiencing indoor air pollution without even knowing it.

Fortunately, many heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) manufacturers recognize the health risks posed by mold, pollen, bacteria and other pollutants and offer a variety of products designed to minimize these risks and improve indoor air quality (IAQ.) Here’s a closer look:

Indoor Air Quality Innovations

Rx technology represents one of the most innovative advances in IAQ products. Rx technology equips all air handlers with a unique coating that helps the coils inside the units resist standing water and microbes. This coating also helps to prevent the gym locker smell or “Dirty Sock Syndrome” that seems to afflict some heat pumps that operate in hot, humid conditions.

The AirScrubber by Aerus uses the same technology that’s used in space to filter and “zap” (see below) that’s an affordable option for those in Anne Arundel County. It can easily be installed by Fixed HVAC Service in short time too.


The AirScrubber by Aerus® attaches directly to the HVAC system ductwork to reduce viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants in the ambient air and on surfaces while the HVAC fan is running.

Patented ActivePure is an advanced surface and air purification technology. It has been proven to reduce up to 99.9% of many common airborne and surface contaminants.

  • Reduces allergens and other contaminants
  • Installs directly into existing ductwork
  • Protects your heating and cooling system from potential buildup
  • Warranty: Limited 5 year warranty

Bring Fresh Air In

Both the heat recovery ventilator and the energy recovery ventilator allow homeowners to manually or automatically adjust fresh airflow, as they replace a portion of stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air. The units also retain energy used to heat or cool the home, saving homeowners money on utility bills.

Let There Be Light

Ultraviolet (UV) air treatment systems cast UV energy on cooling system components to prevent the growth of mold spores. Reducing allergic reactions. Additionally, electronic and media air cleaners remove up to 94 percent of the dust, pollen, pet dander, plant spores, fungi, bacteria, tobacco smoke and other small particles. These also cause allergic reactions and affect IAQ.

Control Humidity

Finally, whole-house humidifiers let homeowners control indoor humidity levels. Restoring humidity in the home returns moisture to furniture and woodwork, makes it easier to breathe the air and helps ensure maximum comfort to occupants.
