- Air quality
Air filtration systems are a guarantee of fresh air in your home and of a solid investment in your family’s health and comfort. They prevent harmful particles from cycling back into the air you breathe at home by protecting the blower fan from the dust, hair, allergens, pollen, dust mites, mildew, mildew spores and other particles it returns with. The system needs to be changed or cleaned on a regular basis in order to prevent malfunction and in order to keep the air clean, as intended. In order to get the best results from the chosen filters, we recommend choosing one with a high MERV rate (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values) – a unit which measures how efficient the filter is in capturing particles of specific sizes.
One of the best types of filters is the HEPA filter, made out of fiber glass, which gives it a unique configuration and the ability to let only clean air particles pass and to stop large contaminants, which are either trapped based on the principle of adhesion or pressed up against the filter by the strong air flow. HEPA filters are the most efficient as they can collect all of the airborne impurities and they are particularly recommended as the best air filtration systems for people suffering from asthma and hay fever.
General Filters makes the cut of manufacturers we like to work with at Mica Energy Solutions, along with Venmar, another reliable producer. Their air filtration systems are efficient and capable of taking care of the needs of a household and of larger spaces.
Mica Energy Solutions guarantees a professional and focused approach of your project, regardless whether it’s about getting the system installed or regular changes and maintenance work. We have the Customer-for-Life guarantee, making us the “go-to” guys in all matters related to comfort and the quality of the air in your house, such as the air filtration systems.
Heat Recovery Ventilators
Heat recovery ventilators (HRV) make up a sort of energy recovery system meant to provide fresh air, improve climate control and save energy. It is very practical for well-insulated houses with high humidity in winter and summer. Designed to ventilate either individual rooms – such as laundry rooms, darkrooms, bathrooms – or multiple rooms, the HRV can save a minimum of 75% of the air which would otherwise be heated or cooled and then wasted. The system is designed to push out stale air and pull in fresh one at the same time, while introducing it indoors already heated or cooled.
The vänEE products are among the ones we, at Mica Energy Solutions, like to work with. This is a brand with tradition and experience, and they have come up with the design format that revolutionized the industry. Venmar is another company in whose ability to improve and innovate we trust. Also an old company and a pioneer on the market, the Venmar brand is market leader in manufacturing and distribution of heat recovery ventilators. Lifebreath is the company whose products have always exceeded customer expectations and it is a pleasure for any contractor to register such great results off of a recommendation.
One thing that is good to remember then thinking of installing such a system is the fact that already having a ductwork makes things much simpler and cheaper, because this way we can make use of the already existing return-air system. Even so, Mica Energy Solutions does not shy away from projects which imply setting up the whole system and we will even make some follow-up checks just to make sure that everything is good and functional and that your heat recovery ventilators are working just right.
Humidifiers are devices which emit vapor into the air in order to increase moisture levels, thus relieving some of the health problems you may have during the cold season such as dry lips, dry throat in the morning, recurring cold symptoms. Whole house units will usually solve all of your problems and keep a great humidity balance. What is more, compared to having several portable small units placed all around your house, the whole-house unit is a more cost effective and out-of-sight solution.
With a wide range of products and air cleaning solutions, General Filters is one of the companies making real efforts to become industry leader of indoor air quality and filtration systems. They employ a number of experts in air quality solutions and count on cutting-edge technology to develop their products. This is why they have made the recommendations list of Mica Energy Solutions. Another company known for its humidifiers is Aprilaire, a true industry innovator. They are the specialized division of the Research Products Corporation, who has been in the air quality providing business since 1938. Condair is another manufacturer in which we trust. They have been on the market for 65 years, have sales operations in over 14 countries and distribute their products in other 45. The numbers do the talking in this case.
Since there are so many models of humidity controlling units on the market and since it is much more advisable for homeowners to get such systems installed, our team at Mica Energy Solutions is more than ready to make and assessment of your house’s humidity levels in order to determine your needs, to recommend the best suited product, install it and keep it running in good shape. The thing to keep in mind when it comes to humidifiers is that too low humidity levels are bad, but too high levels are just as bad, so you will need help keeping it balanced.
