With our highly trained technicians on your side, your family will be breathing easier in no time.
The Importance of Good Air Quality for Old Homes
Older homes have unique indoor air quality challenges. For instance, they lack the same level of sealing for windows, doors, and attics that newer homes have. And the gaps in these areas often allow irritants to make their way inside, where they can overwhelm an HVAC system’s filtering capabilities. Common issues that affect air quality in older homes include:
- Poorly insulated attics
- Old or no ductwork
- Poor airflow
- Outdated thermostats
- Lack of zoning
Our air quality services at American Vintage Home ensure your home’s air quality is as healthy and free from irritating pollutants as it can be.
Our Indoor Air Quality Services
Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers
Advanced technologies make it easier than ever to maintain the perfect balance of humidity in your older home. Whole-home humidifiers or dehumidifiers let you take control of your home’s humidity levels once and for all! With a system installed by our team, you no longer have to worry about damp air leading to mold growth or dry air leaving you with a raspy cough.
The typical home loses about 20% of the air that moves through its ductwork to leaks. Our duct cleaning and sealing services ensure you aren’t paying more to be less comfortable! American Vintage Home uses Aeroseal® technology to seal your home’s air ducts and help you save money and energy.
A more energy-efficient home is great for your wallet, but it’s not always great for your home’s IAQ. Once a home is sealed, allergens and pollutants can build up in your air and damage furniture, put a strain on HVAC equipment, and increase symptoms in people with allergies. An air filtration system from American Vintage Home improves indoor air and helps you save on energy costs.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Odorless, tasteless, and colorless, carbon monoxide is also deadly, causing hundreds of deaths every year. Reliable and accurate carbon monoxide detectors alert you to danger immediately and protect everyone inside the home from danger.
An air purification system is a great addition to any home as it can neutralize contaminants and pollutants in your air. At American Vintage Home, we proudly offer the Reme Halo Air Purifier. The Reme Halo utilizes UV light and other technologies to rid your air of bacteria, viruses, odors, mold spores, and more. It also works with SpacePak and Unico systems, making it an ideal air quality solution for older homes.
