Nice Air Cleaning & Filtration Services

It’s important to have clean air in your home to keep your family healthy. Call Nice Heating & Air for air filtration system installation in the Alexandria and Springfield, VA areas.

One of the most important issues that affect your home every day is the quality of the indoor air. Residential homes are tightly sealed against the outdoors for reasons of energy efficiency and climate control, and this often leads to stuffy, stale air that may recirculate contaminants throughout the ductwork. The air inside your home may actually be more polluted than the outdoor air with stuff you can’t see like viruses, bacteria, mold, dust, and chemicals!

It is our pleasure to help you breathe easier. We invite you to call Nice Heating & Air at 703-884-2376 to discuss the air purification products we recommend for your family that will keep the air within your home nice and clean.

Types of Air Quality Products

Nice Heating & Air offers a number of options and products to improve the quality of the air inside your home:

One of the best ways of cleaning your indoor air is with a home air filtration system. These are whole-house devices that integrate directly into your ductwork to filter out a wide range of harmful particles and contaminants. Nice Heating & Air installs and services these products.

An air purifier is a type of air filtration system that uses an electrostatic process instead of a filtering medium such as fiberglass. Nice Heating & Air installs and services air purifiers and we’ll make sure that yours works just as promised.

One of the most distinctive traits about your home's indoor air quality is the humidity level. You have likely used a portable humidifier or dehumidifier in your home at some point or another. A whole-house humidifier or dehumidifier works with your current system and is highly effective and efficient.

A UV air purifier uses ultraviolet light to destroy biological contaminants such as mildew, mold spores, and bacteria as they pass throughout your ductwork. We install and service UV air purifiers to work with your current system to keep you safe and breathing cleaner air.

Benefits of Installing an Air Cleaner in Your Home

There are many benefits of installing an air cleaner in your home, for both the health of you and your house:

  • Reduced allergens – This can improve the health of everyone in the home who suffers from allergies.
  • Improved overall air quality – Removing allergens, germs, and humidity from the home can benefit those with asthma.
  • Lower humidity – Removing moisture from the air can make the house more comfortable.
  • Cleaner smell – Air cleaners can remove odors from the home.
  • Cigarette smoke dispersion – If there is a smoker in the household, air cleaners can help disperse the cigarette smoke from the home.
  • Depletion of airborne bacteria and germs – Air cleaners can remove bacteria and germs from the air that can result in colds and flu.

Types of Air Purifiers

When you decide to install an air cleaning system in your home you have many options. Some of the most common systems are:

  • Whole-house systems: These systems provide consistent air quality control throughout your entire home.
  • Portable air purifiers: These systems are less expensive than whole-house units, but they are also less powerful.
  • Ozone generators: These systems clean the air in your home while producing oxidation properties that will safely and effectively control indoor air pollutants.

What Kinds of Filters Are Used in Air Cleaning Systems?

One of the key components of your air cleaning system is the filter. The right kind of filter can help improve the air quality in your home. There are many types of filters you can choose for your system:

  • Ionic: Ionic filters generate negative ions that capture positive ions, such as dust and allergen particles. These cost-effective filters work best for smoke reduction.
  • HEPA: HEPA filters were originally developed to remove radioactive dust particles from the air. Now, these are used to reduce contaminants from the air, such as mold, dust-mite debris, pet dander, bacteria, and pollen.
  • UV: Ultraviolet light air filters destroy microorganisms. These filters perform best when preventing illness and disease.
  • Carbon: Carbon is the most absorbent filter. It reduces odors and fumes without releasing any contaminants back into the air.

Air Cleaning & Filtration FAQs

If you have allergies or asthma, the proper air purifier can help you enjoy better health. Air purifiers that use HEPA filtration are ideal for reducing asthma symptoms and allergies—these filter out particles up to .3 microns, which encompasses nearly 100% of all allergens.

Pets in the home, children, frequent visitors, living in the middle of the city, and even living out in the countryside on a farm can decrease the air quality within your home. Other factors can include the use of household cleaning products, smoking, cooking, poor ventilation, and the installation of pressed-wood cabinets and furniture.

CADR is an abbreviation that stands for Clean Air Delivery Rate. This is the rate that identifies the total volume of filtered air the air purifier can deliver. The higher the CADR, the faster the air purifier will clean the air within your home.

UV lights will kill or neutralize most airborne bacteria and viruses. However, some stubborn strains of bacteria and viruses can survive direct exposure to UV light. For this reason, UV lights coupled with HEPA filters are the best choice for ensuring a nice and healthy home.

For best results, you will want to operate your air purifier 24/7. This will ensure that the pollution within your home doesn't build up. However, you can turn it down so that it's nice and slow when you are away at work or out of town on vacation.

Most air purifiers are nice and silent. You will barely notice their gentle hum as they clean the air within your home. Some are louder than others, and some will sound louder when scrubbing significant amounts of pollution from the airflow. However, almost all air purifiers are quieter than the sound of the air coming through your air registers.
