Ways To Improve the Air In Your Home

Here at JK Mechanical, we know that fresh air is not only good for your health, but also for your family’s health. We know of some simple solutions that can enhance the quality of air inside your home, control air moisture, bring fresh air inside, filter out chemicals in the air, and eliminate germs and bacteria.


Air Cleaners

Air cleaners remove even the smallest particles from the air. Bacteria, pollen, animal dander, and other pollutants are eliminated, whether you can visibly see them or they are 0.01 microns, which is 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin.


A quiet, energy-efficient way to improve the comfort in your home as well as reducing static electricity by delivering controlled moisture to your air is with a humidifier. Humidifiers can work as independent units or as a tandem unit with your furnace system.


Bring fresh air into your home and force out stale air and pollutants with an efficient ventilator that can be set to either heat or cool your home depending on the season.

UV Lamps

Ultraviolet light kills bacteria, mold, and other germs and bacteria in the air inside your home. These lamps can help improve overall health and give your immune system a break from fighting off harsh viruses.


Solutions for Maintaining a Net Zero Household

Here at JK Mechanical, we have the ability to use clean energy from solar panels and a geothermal heat pump. We are able to maintain a net zero building by generating all the power we use through solar panels installed by our very own technicians. If you are looking to keep energy costs down, while still breathing in fresh air, we’ve got some great energy free solutions to help.


Plants Bring Fresh Air

The fresh air that we get from trees and plants can do wonders for our health and our immune systems. Plants remove certain toxins from the air, making it safer and better for our respiratory systems. Air pollution can create major health issues and has shown to increase discomfort in the eyes, nose, and throat.

Keeping plants in your house is a great way to not only freshen the air in your home, but to brighten up a room. Here are four of the best plants to keep around the house.
