Air pollution within the home is not something one worries frequently about, but the EPA has named indoor air pollution as one of the top five environmental risks to public health. Many believe that outdoor air has the pollution that is hurtful, but the EPA reports that indoor air is over one hundred times more polluted than outdoor air.

By utilizing an air cleaning system in your house, you can make your home the safest place to breath. Trenary Service Company in Hagerstown, MD can install an air cleaning system for you today!

What exactly are you breathing in without an air cleaning system? The air that normally comes through when you turn on your heating and air cooling system is filled with dust, allergens, pet dander, bacteria and viruses.

Air cleaners work by integrating with your home’s cooling and heating system and essentially making it a filtering system to stop these toxins in their tracks. While there are many different types of air cleaners, a whole-home air cleaner is best because it runs when your system runs. The air you breathe is filtered to remove harmful toxins before it is cooled or heated and then circulated through your home.

An air cleaning system requires little to no maintenance by you, the homeowner. Because the system integrates with your air conditioning and heating systems, it does all the work for you. The only maintenance required is the replacement of the filters every one to two years, and our team can easily handle that for you.

Points to Consider

Why you need a whole-house air cleaning system:

Respiratory Problems—94% of respiratory problems are caused by inhaling polluted air.

Asthma—Over 30 million Americans have asthma. An air cleaning system could easily give relief.

Dust—In one ounce of dust, there are over 40,000 dust mites.

Pet Dander—Over 15% of people are allergic to pet dander.

Skin Flakes—The average person sheds over 700,000 skin flakes in a day.

The Air We Breathe—Adults inhale over 3,500 gallons of air a day. How much of that is polluted?

Features of the Right Air Cleaner for Your Home

When shopping for the perfect whole-home air cleaner for your home, you must consider many things. Be sure to think about the following qualities before purchasing an air cleaner:

Maintenance Frequency–Some air cleaners require replacing the filters very frequently, while others recommend a longer period of one to three months.
Quality Level—Be sure the cleaner is built to last for many years to come.
Sound Level—You do not want to hear your air cleaner throughout the day! Make sure you get one that is silent.
Square Footage—Some cleaners only promise to filter a room. Be sure to get one that filters the entire square footage of your home.

Poor air quality in a home can only exacerbate any respiratory problems you or your family members experience. Breathing in pollution can also aid in the development of respiratory diseases, such as asthma. Your home, which many people consider to be the one place that they feel safe, could be endangering the health of you and your family.

Selecting an air conditioner for your home is a big decision, it’s an important investment today. It will also play a key role in your home energy expenses for years to come. When the summer heat is at its worst, you’ll want your family to have the best, most reliable cooling comfort possible.

What do good central air conditioning units have in common?

The best ones are efficient, operating on minimal electricity to hold utility bills down. They provide steady, dependable performance year after year when properly maintained. Good systems are quiet, long-lasting and low in service needs.

How do I know if my unit is the right size?

Obviously, an air conditioner that’s too small won’t keep your home sufficiently cool. But what many don’t realize is that an oversized system will cycle (turn on and off) more than necessary, wasting expensive energy and possibly putting undue strain on the compressor. Trenary Service Company will determine the optimum size for your home by making a careful study of your cooling requirements, window dimensions and exposure, floor space, insulation and local climate, heat-generating appliances, the direction your home faces and even the amount of your home’s exterior shaded by trees to determine the best size for your air conditioning unit.

We’ll specify the cooling capacity of the system in either Btu/h (British thermal units of heat removed per hour) or refrigeration tons (one ton being equal to 12,000 Btu/h).

Which air conditioners are energy efficient?

Much like automobile manufacturers, today’s air conditioner manufacturers are required by law to evaluate and rate their equipment according to its energy efficiency. This rating is known in the industry as a SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the equipment.

Most new homes with central air come equipped with a standard builder’s model. However, when replacement becomes necessary, property owners can upgrade their air conditioning by specifying a more energy-efficient system.

The Rheem Classic XIV® High Efficiency model, for example, has a SEER of 14.00, among the highest available. It’s significantly higher than today’s standard models, many of which carry SEER’s of around 10. High SEER models are generally more expensive, but can easily make up the difference by reducing your home energy bills over the long run.

Are some air conditioners built better than others?

The compressor is the heart of a condensing unit. On a hot day, it works long and hard. We carry Rheem equipment has a highly advanced scroll compressor in every condensing unit we produce. Scroll Compressors are recognized by the industry as the leader in reliability, efficiency and quiet operation.

Other features to look for include louvered steel cabinets that protect the coils from damage and expensive repair bills. Also, with some condensing units, the fan can be another source of bothersome noise. Rheem units have a grill design that minimizes air restriction for quieter fan operation.
