3-Part System For Virus Protection & Healthy Air

The Haley Mechanical Healthy Air System is ideal for homeowners in Ann Arbor and areas of SE Michigan who want healthier air and protection against viruses. This innovative system was explicitly designed in response to COVID-19 concerns. Here is what you should know!

Air Filtration. While the majority of airborne viruses have a particle size of between 0.03 and 0.3 microns, the Coronavirus effectively has a particle size of 0.13 microns, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health. For this reason, it is critical you have a system in place to properly filter out particles in your home’s air as well as incoming ventilation air. Providing the absolute highest rate of effectiveness, the Healthy Climate Carbon Clean MERV 16 Filters are capable of capturing as much as 90% of airborne virus-size particles down to .01 micron. The coconut-activated carbon coated fiber matrix works with your heating and cooling system to provide a thorough whole home solution. See air filtration solutions

Fresh Air Ventilation. Proper ventilation is key for clean, fresh air and essential for dilution and removal of airborne contaminants such as virus particles. A properly functioning whole-home ventilation system works to reduce indoor air that is stagnant by bringing in fresh outdoor air. You may not realize it, but the air inside our homes is often as much as five times more polluted than outdoor air! You can rest assured that you enjoy the recommended amount of fresh outside air by using products such as the Healthy Climate heat recovery ventilation system. A heat recovery ventilator is the most efficient method to ventilate your home by harnessing the heat from inside your home and transferring it to incoming fresh air from outside. These products are particularly useful when used in conjunction with indoor air quality (IAQ) thermostats that make it possible for you to control the amount of fresh outdoor air coming into your home with a simple adjustment.

Humidity Control. The transmission of viruses is substantially reduced when humidity levels are in the proper range. According to ASHRAE, humidity ranging between 30% and 60% helps reduce virus survival rates. For homes in SE Michigan, humidity will typically need to be added during the winter months and removed in the summer to keep your home in the optimal humidity range. Some of the products that work to add humidity include the Healthy Climate bypass humidifiers and the Aprilaire 800 steam humidifier for homes with a large humidity need. A properly sized air conditioning system can be very effective at controlling humidity during the summer months for most homes but some homes might require a whole-home dehumidifier to remove additional moisture.
