Indoor Air Quality

Improving the air quality in your home or office involves eliminating or reducing three types of indoor air pollutants - Particulates, Microbials and Gases. Therefore, in order to make an apples-to-apples comparison, we must compare what each type of indoor air quality product is attempting to do. 

Particulates

Particulates are tiny particles suspended in the air. Common particulates include residential pollen, dust mites, dust, smoke and dander (skin flakes). Particulate diameters are measured in microns and range from .001 to 1,000 microns. These dimensions represent the continuum from a few molecules up to the size where particles can no longer be airborne. 

Microbials

These are bacteria, germs, viruses, fungi, spores and mold. Although bacteria are small in size and usually microscopic, they have an amazing ability to do damage to all living organisms including humans. Many everyday illnesses are also caused by viruses like the common cold or the flu. Mold can be a dangerous allergen, cause infections, and destroy property requiring extensive repair and rebuilding. 

Gases

Indoor odors are caused by things like pets, cooking, garbage exist in every home and office. Gases, such as benzene, formaldehyde, chloroform, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, etc., are released from furniture, cabinets, carpets, cleaning chemicals, insulation, insect sprays, hair sprays, etc. Manufactures use chemicals to make these products and they off-gas, or evaporate, these chemicals into the air in your home. 

 

Each of these air pollutants requires a specific treatment process for proper removal. Acme offers air purification products and equipment that are proactive in their ability to kill germs and reduce odors in the conditioned space.

Cleaning Air

Many of the air purification units we offer don’t need the pollutants to travel through the duct work to be neutralized. Every time your fan blows air it carries the purifying power of natures “Friendly Oxidizers” out into the conditioned space where the “Friendly Oxidizers” begin to attack the Bacteria, Virus, Mold Spores at the source and reduce odors in your home.

Improve the air quality in your home or office by reducing:

  • Smoke odors
  • Cooking odors
  • Pet odors
  • Trash odors
  • “Musty” or Stale Air smells
  •  Formaldehyde
  • Paint odors
  • Chemical odors

Additionally, many of our air purification products have the ability to kill bacteria and virus on surfaces and in the air. These systems are used by some of America’s largest restaurant chains, hotel chains, theme parks, cruise lines, public schools and hospitals. 

Testing has shown a 99% reduction of H1N1 virus on Stainless steel surfaces, 98% reduction of MRSA, a 99% reduction of Norwalk Virus, a 97% reduction of Mold Spores, even a 99+% reduction of SARS and Avian Flu. 

Poor Indoor Air Quality Can Threaten Your Health 

Most people spend over 90% of their time indoors, not knowing that the air they are breathing may be more polluted than the air outside. The Environmental Protection Agency has reported that indoor air pollution levels can be 100 times higher than the air outdoors. 

Breathing contaminated air puts the health of you and your family at risk. In fact, the American College of Allergist says that 50% of illnesses are caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. So take control of your indoor air quality by reducing pollutants that can contribute to headache, lung irritation and fatigue as well as more long-term conditions such as asthma, allergies and infectious diseases. 

Indoor Air Quality Facts 

  • People spend 75-90% of their time indoors
  • Exposure to airborne contamination is considerable.
  • 50% of all major office buildings have contaminated heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC). If not properly maintained, they are a hotbed for growth of molds and bacteria.
  • Each person inhales over 3,500 gallons of air each day. Children inhale more particles for their size then adolescents or adults.
  • Polluted air causes 94% of all respiratory problems.
  • More than 31 million Americans have been diagnosed with asthma, about 1/3 are children under 18.
  • About 40,000 dust mites, a common household allergen, can live in one ounce of dust.
  • An estimated 10-15% of the entire population may be allergic to cat or dog dander.
  • A person sheds up to 700,000 skin flakes per day.

Cooling and Heating Efficiency

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER)

Today's air conditioning and cooling systems are much more efficient than those of just a few years ago. Using new technology to run as economically as possible and use less energy. Often, the energy savings of replacing an old ac system will pay for the cost of the system in just a few years.

Below is a chart that shows the energy savings of air conditioning units based on SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings, a measure of the efficiency of air conditioners as defined by the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute. 

The SEER rating of an air conditioning system is the cooling output measured in BTU (British thermal unit) during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input measured in watt-hours during the same period. A more-efficient system has a higher SEER rating, which translates into money savings.
