Explore Your Indoor Air Quality Improvement Options

Improving your indoor air quality involves several effective solutions aimed at creating a healthier and more comfortable environment. At Exxel Mechanical Services, we offer a range of options to enhance your air quality:

  1. Ventilation Systems: Our ventilation solutions, such as Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs), ensure a continuous flow of fresh outdoor air while expelling stale indoor air. This constant circulation minimizes pollutants and keeps your indoor environment fresh.
  2. Humidifiers: Installing humidifiers can balance indoor humidity levels, especially during the winter season. Maintaining proper humidity levels contributes to improved respiratory health and overall comfort.
  3. Advanced Filtration: We provide high-quality air filtration systems that effectively capture dust, allergens, and other airborne particles, ensuring cleaner air for you and your family.
  4. Smart Thermostats: Opting for smart thermostats allows for precise control over your indoor climate. These innovative devices help manage temperature, humidity, and air quality, providing a more tailored and comfortable living space.

Read on to explore these air quality enhancement options, and you’ll be well on your way to creating a healthier and more pleasant indoor environment while optimizing energy efficiency and overall comfort in your home.

Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRV) For Fresher Indoor Air

An HRV is an advanced ventilation system designed to efficiently manage indoor air quality by continuously circulating fresh outdoor air and expelling stale indoor air. It’s equipped with a heat exchanger that facilitates the exchange of heat between the incoming and outgoing air streams. This process allows the unit to recover and conserve heat energy from the outgoing air, transferring it to the incoming fresh air. As a result, it effectively retains warmth during winter and cools incoming air during summer, ensuring a balanced indoor temperature year-round.

Why Consider an HRV?

  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: HRVs ensure a continuous flow of fresh air, reducing the buildup of indoor pollutants, allergens, and odors, and promoting healthier air quality.
  • Energy Efficiency: By recovering heat from the outgoing air, HRVs help conserve energy and maintain a consistent indoor temperature, resulting in reduced heating and cooling costs.
  • Year-Round Comfort: HRVs maintain balanced humidity levels and regulate indoor temperatures, enhancing comfort for occupants regardless of the weather conditions outside.
  • Health Benefits: Circulating fresh air minimizes the likelihood of respiratory issues and allergies, creating a healthier living or working environment for occupants.

Considering the myriad benefits, integrating an HRV into your property is an excellent investment in optimizing indoor air quality and overall comfort.

Humidifier Services for Enhanced Indoor Comfort

Humidifiers play a crucial role in maintaining optimal indoor humidity levels, especially in dry Maryland winters. Installing a humidifier offers numerous benefits, making it a valuable addition to your home. Dry air can cause various discomforts such as irritated sinuses, dry skin, respiratory issues, and static electricity. By adding moisture to the air, a humidifier helps alleviate these problems, promoting better respiratory health and skin hydration. Moreover, balanced humidity levels can also prevent damage to wooden furniture and minimize the risk of wood shrinkage in the home. Our humidifier services aim to provide you with a more comfortable and healthier indoor environment by ensuring optimal humidity levels year-round.

Our Advanced Air Filtration Options

Media Filter

A superior performance in air cleaning

The F100 Whole-House Media Air Cleaner is up to 85% more efficient at capturing both microscopic particles like dust and smoke in addition to larger contaminants such as mold spores and pet dander. This highly effective air cleaner also requires minimal maintenance. Once you install the filter you only need to replace it every 6-12 months. That’s four times longer than a standard one-inch furnace filter.

  • Up to 85% more efficient at capturing airborne particles compared to a standard one-inch filter
  • Captures both microscopic particles and larger contaminants
  • Lasts up to four times longer than a standard one-inch furnace filter
  • Replace filter every 6-12 months
  • Widely compatible
  • Easy to upgrade to a higher-performance electronic air cleaner
  • Five-year warranty
  • Professional installation

U.V. Light

This germicidal UV light bulb is available with a Shatterproof Coating. In the case that the lamp shatters, this coating protects the lamp glass from falling into the unit. As a result, the glass is contained, making it safer to operate your unit and dispose of the glass. Simply select this option above.

This ultraviolet purification lamp is instant starting and utilizes a coil filament, which operates hot. The UV lamp life is governed by the life of the electrodes and is affected by the frequency of starting.

With technology installed in over 100,000 applications, iWave-R is the world’s first self-cleaning, no-maintenance needlepoint bi-polar ionization generator designed specifically for treating air in residential duct AC systems. As the air flows past the iWave-R, positive and negative ions actively purify the supply air, killing mold, bacteria, and viruses in the coil and living space.

The ionization process also reduces allergens, smoke, and static electricity, as well as controlling odors (cooking, pet, VOCs) and other particles (no more sunbeams) in the air without creating ozone or any harmful byproducts.

iWave-R treats the air in any brand of residential duct air conditioning systems up to 6 tons (2400 CFM) in size with no maintenance and no replacement parts. Designed for universal mounting, the iWave-R typically requires only 15 minutes to install inside or outside of the duct or to attach magnetically near the indoor fan in the air handler. Simply connect to power using its patent-pending voltage input capability. Install between the air filter and cooling coil to treat the indoor coil; as an alternative, the iWave-R can be installed in the supply air.

iWave-R always works at peak performance, producing over 160 million ions/cc, more than any other ionizer product on the market. Its patent-pending self-cleaning design includes a programmable cleaning cycle that can clean the emitter brushes every 1, 3, 5, or 10 days. The iWave-R is factory set to clean every third day which is adequate for a typical installation. iWave-R does not create “black walls” as negative-only ionizer products will do.

  • Very high-efficiency air cleaning—more than 99% efficient at capturing pollen!
  • Special layered construction provides exceptional dirt-holding capacity.
  • Features Ultravation® Ultrastrand™ fibers that maximize capture and filter efficiency, they are hypo-allergenic. Stop mold growth and destroy millions of airborne germs with UltraMAX™ UV lights Reduce illnesses caused by airborne bacteria and viruses!
  • UV-C equipped Photronic™ models employ Ultravation’s UltraMAX™ UV air treatment with the patented*** T3™ UV lamp system, to disinfect the air.
  • UV-C light kills bacteria and viruses in the air stream and simultaneously halts mold and other biological growth on interior HVAC surfaces—which when uncontrolled can be a major source of bio-contamination of the air.
  • UV-C light is highly germicidal yet generates no by-products!
  • Photronic creates a healthier, fresher smelling, and more comfortable indoor environment with the ReFresh™ photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) system Photronic’s ReFresh™ air purification process, operates in much the same way a catalytic converter breaks down complex substances in a car’s exhaust:
  • The air passing through the ReFresh™ system comes in contact with a UV-energized grid, coated with an exclusive PCO formulation containing titanium dioxide.
  • The grid reacts with hundreds of odors (caused by VOCs**) and other organics including microorganisms and breaks them down into harmless and odorless components. Photronic™ for a better outdoor environment, too. Photronic keeps HVAC components much cleaner! This increases energy efficiency and saves money.
  • Photronic costs no more to run than an economical fluorescent light bulb.
  • The increased efficiency of the HVAC system has the potential to save far more energy than it consumes—lowering your home’s carbon footprint.
