Moreover, our solutions are designed to improve the air quality in your home, reducing the risk of health problems associated with poor air quality. With Halltec HVAC, you can breathe easy knowing that your indoor air is clean and healthy.
1. Air Purifiers
Air purifiers are devices designed to remove the pollutants and contaminants from the air, improving air quality and reducing the risk of respiratory problems. They work by filtering and trapping airborne particles, like dust, pollen, and other allergens. We offer the following air purifiers:
- UV Coil Purifiers: A UV coil purifier damages the DNA and prevents microorganisms from reproducing. They’re easy to maintain, use less energy, and prevent illnesses.
- UV Air Purifiers: UV air purifiers play a distinct part in preventing airborne pathogens and microorganisms like bacteria, mold, and viruses with the help of short-wave ultraviolet (UV) light. We deliver UV air purifiers in which air gets pushed through the machine passing through ultraviolet lamps that directly tries to disinfect the air. In addition, we only deal in the two most advanced UV air purifier technology:
- HEPA Filtration
- Ionic Generation
2. Ventilation Services
Proper ventilation is crucial for maintaining healthy indoor air quality, reducing the risk of airborne contaminants, and also providing a comfortable and healthy living environment for you and your family. We offer the following ventilation services:
- ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator): Also known as an air exchanger, the ERV system is designed to connect to your HVAC system in order to pull fresh, clean air into the building and take the unclean air out.
- HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilator): This type of ventilator is ideal in colder climates where there’s excess moisture in the summer. An HRV works by using two separate air streams to transfer heat and moisture between incoming and outgoing air, thereby reducing the load on heating and cooling systems.
- VRV (Variable Refrigerant Volume): The VRV technology adjusts the volume of refrigerant used in a system to meet the specific needs of a building. By using minimal energy, the system can maintain desired temperatures while also automatically turning off when there are no occupants in a room.
Humidification services help control the humidity levels in indoor spaces. At Halltec HVAC, we install humidifiers that add moisture to the air in order to prevent dryness and maintain comfortable and healthy indoor air quality. Our humidifiers include:
- Evaporative Humidifiers: Evaporative humidifiers are said to be the safest humidifiers on the market, according to the EPA. They work by employing a filter or wick in conjunction with a fan to introduce moisture into the air, expediting the evaporation process to boost the humidity levels in the room.
- Steam Humidification: The main purpose of steam humidifiers is to use steam from a central facility to boil water that is potable, deionized, or treated with reverse osmosis. This process enables the system to generate clean and hygienic atmospheric steam without any harmful substances.
4. Whole House Dehumidifiers
Using a whole-house dehumidifier can reduce humidity levels throughout an entire household. You can achieve this by integrating it into the HVAC ductwork or installing it separately as a standalone unit. Maintaining humidity levels below 50% is possible with the use of a dehumidifier. It is also recommended to keep humidity levels between 30-50% for optimal comfort and health.
Air cleaners are designed to filter the air in your home. They are devices designed to improve indoor air quality by removing pollutants and particles from the air. Our filtration services include:
- Media Air Cleaners: A media air cleaner functions as a filter that captures small, unseen particles of air pollutants such as pollen, dust, dander, and mold. You usually place these air cleaners on the return duct line to prevent the particulates from infiltrating your home.
- HEPA Air Cleaners: HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air. In theory, this kind of air filter is able to eliminate airborne particles that measure 0.3 microns or more, like dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and other contaminants, with an efficiency of at least 99.97%.
- Electronic Air Cleaners: Your heating and cooling system works by drawing air in. During this process, an electronic air cleaner captures big particles, like dander and dust, using a pre-filter. After that, smaller particles, like bacteria and mold, get drawn in and trapped by electrically charged filters, preventing them from re-circulating inside your space.
