The Value of Our precision tune-up agreement

At Morris Heating & Cooling, our technicians know that room temperature is just one piece of the home comfort puzzle. Our Marion, NC clients want assurance that the air they and their loved ones breathe is safe and clean. While it is impossible to remove every contaminant, a whole-home air purification system can go a long way in cleaning your atmosphere.

Common Household Impurities

Indoor air quality experts break impurities into several categories. The largest particles are visible floating in the air on a sunny day, like dust, pet dander, and pollen grains. These specks are responsible for allergy symptoms in sensitive people.

The next size level involves the substance you can’t see, such as mold spores, bacteria, and viruses. Removing these tiny organisms is critical for preventing illness in your family.

Molecular impurities include the many compounds in cigarette smoke, cleaning supplies, and some beauty products. When these chemicals build up in your air, they can make your home smell unpleasant as well as cause headaches, sleep disruption, and fatigue.

How a Whole-Home Air Purifier Works

An air purifier uses an advanced filtering system to circulate the air and remove harmful substances. Some units use traditional filters, while others employ static electricity to capture particles. These systems are very effective with larger particles, but smaller impurities require advanced technology.

The systems we install at Morris Heating & Cooling create an electric field of charged ions. This system is installed inside your current HVAC system. Positive and negative points on the surface of impurities attract the ions, creating a cluster around the substance. The process of ionization breaks down microorganisms and makes filtering systems more effective. This technology is safe and results in cleaner air for your home.

Indoor air quality also includes humidity levels. We can also install whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers.
