Indoor Air Quality

Bellomy Heating and Air, Inc. performs repairs for many different types of IAQ systems, as seen below. Call us today if you have any questions or click on the links below to learn about each system.

Air Purifiers

Air purifiers are another method of cleaning air; however, these type products are designed to destroy or deactivate particles in the air rather than filtering those particles out of the air. Thus, many air purifiers are used in conjunction with mechanical air filters and electronic air cleaners. Examples of air purifiers include ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), photocatalytic oxidation (PCO), and ozone generators.

Electronic Air Cleaners

Electronic air cleaners are highly effective filters that clean air using electricity to charge the air. These electrically charged particles in the air are attracted to the filter and get trapped. Ionizers, which are a type of electronic air cleaner, emit negative ions to trap particles. Electronic air cleaners are quite effective having a MERV (maximum efficiency reporting value) rating of up to 16 (out of a 20).

Gaseous Pollution Removal

A very specific type of filtration for indoor air quality is with gas pollution, such as removal of ozone via a carbon filter. Carbon in the filter acts as a sorbent to absorb the ozone gas emitted within a structure. Typically, these are seen most often in conjunction with electronic air cleaners to remove the small amounts of ozone generated (and thus any odor involved).

HEPA Mechanical Air Filters

Air filters are a great way to remove most large particles from the air, such as dust, pollen, and other such potential allergens. Media air cleaners are special high-capacity types that do not have to be changed as often. Because larger particles tend to settle out of the air before they can be filtered, some clients may prefer additional filtration via electronic air cleaners which can “attract” large and small particles.
