The U.S. EPA has estimated that indoor air levels of pollutants may be 2 to 5 times - and occasionally more than 100 times - higher than outdoor air pollutant levels. Indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health. The problems they cause can be subtle and do not always produce easily recognized or immediate impacts on health. (source U.S. E.P.A.) The average adult at rest inhales and exhales around 7 or 8 liters of air per minute. That totals to be around 11,000 liters of air (388 cubic feet) in a day.

Today's homes are better insulated than ever. While this is great for energy savings, it also means that millions of airborne particles are trapped indoors where they continue to circulate throughout your home, and the air your family breathes. The Lennox PureAir system whole home Air purifiers and filter systems work with your heating and cooling system to provide a thorough, whole house solution to remove these particles and dramatically improve the quality of your indoor air. Besides providing excellent filtration unmatched by any manufacturer, these home air quality products can also help prolong the life of your heating and cooling system by keeping it free from dirt and dust buildup.
Your best defense against poor indoor air quality is the the PureAir system. The PureAir uses exclusive UVA-light technology to attack all three classes of indoor air contaminants-particles, mold/mildew/bacteria and odors/chemical vapors. It not only reduces, but also destroys ozone, a known lung irritant.
Germicidal lights use intense rays of ultraviolet light to kill contaminants like viruses, bacteria, mold and yeast. Installed inside your HVAC duct system, the Lennox Healthy Climate UV Lamp attacks and kills mold and bacteria that can grow in moist heating and cooling systems. Call us today to have a Healthy Climate UV Lamp installed in your central air system.
By adding humidity to heated, dry air, the air feels warmer, helps reduce dry skin and static shock plus you can lower the thermostat and still be comfortable, while saving money. The Healthy Climate Power Humidifier attaches to your furnace or air handler and adds moisture to air moving through the duct system. A built-in fan allows the unit to circulate humidified air even when your heating system is not in operation.
New homes and some older homes can be tightly built to save energy, but this can often times have a negative impact on homes without proper ventilation. An airtight home provides no way to refresh the air in the indoor environment. An ideal solution for tightly sealed homes is a Health Climate Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV). The ERV system exchanges stale air from inside with fresher outdoor air. To ensure absolute comfort, the system captures heat from contaminated air before it is moved outdoors.
