Indoor Air Quality
There Are many ways to keep the air in your home clean and fresh. Here are a few of the products we offer:
The Air Advice Home Monitor is a state of the art solution for finding out just what might be making you or your family sick. This device can be left in your home for three days to test the air. It will send a report to our computer, measuring VOC's (volital organic compounds), Tempature, Relative Humidity, Airborn Particulates, Carbon Monoxide, and Carbon Dioxide. We will find the answers to your Indoor Air Problems.
This is an example of a readout you will receive with this monitoring:
The Three Danger Levels
A-Apex Is One Of Few Selected To Install ToraVac! Tora Vac duct Cleaning is the only source removal system guaranteed to make your home a cleaner and more comfortable Nature's Home environment. ToraVac is a 9 step comprensive cleaning process that involves a Filtered Power Vac, High Velocity Air Sweeper and a High Powered Biocidal Fogger. Your evaporator coil and blower fan are removed and cleaned; your grills are removed and cleaned; and your entire duct system is left hosipital-like fresh and safe. And the process is guaranteed.
We carry many filters- everything from the standard 1" fiberglass to the upgraded cotton/ployester pleated types. Both types remove larger airborne particles. However wanting somthing more with out having to spend hundreds of dollars. We have a great new "gradient layered"product called the Fantastic Filter. Developed by leading asthma & allergy physicians it removes substantially all airborne particles down to 1.8 microns. This top-rated 1" filter is the most affordable air filteration option available for the Nature's Home. Made of Polyolefin this filter life is about three months.
The MicroPower Guard uses an active electomagnetic field to magnetize both airborne particles and the fibers fo the disposable filter pad. This creates a virtual "force field" within the ductwork, capturing many of the smallest, most dangerouse to breathe submicron airborne particles. This 1" filter is the most cost effective and easiest to mataine electronic air cleaner available for the Nature's Home and is an essential component of any Premier air purification system. Replacement pads life is about four months.
The MicroGuardian AirScrubber is the only true in-line HEPA filter similar to the filters used in hospitals, clean rooms and microchip manufracturing plants. The HEPA stage is engineered to stay efficient for up to five years, as long as the Carbon Stage and Polyethylene Foam Stage are replaced every six months.
Level 2 & Level 3
The OxyQuantum is a uniquely engineered, integrated UVC & UVV system designed to dramatically reduce/control airborne toxic compounds such as mold, fungus, formaldehyde, xyele gases and tobacco smoke along with infectious agents such as bacteris influenza hemolytic streptococci and many others. Duct mounted unit for central systems.
The OxyQuantum Plus is our ultimate duct-mounted air purifaction device, providing superion control of airborne infectious agents and airborne toxic gases. The OxyQuantium Plus is horizontally mounted in the central HVAC system.
Level 1, Level 2, & Level 3 Protection
The MicroGuardian Air Scrubber. III is an integrated IAQ "super system" that effectively controls all Three Danger Levels; a special "V-bank" configuration of two MicroPower Guard air cleaners provides HEPA-like quality air purification to control submicron allergenic particles; an integrated UVC light band and patented oscillating sterilizing beam of the Sterile Sweep lamp controls infectious agents; and an activated carbon cell, constantly re-entergized by the focused UVC light band controls toxic gases. Mosteffective product available from Nature's Home. Our name itself reflects what we strive to do. And that is to provide our customers with the highest quality products and services in home comfort. We are continuously upgrading our products and training. Today's houses are made tighter to save energy. So it is very important to make sure our HVAC systems have balanced ductwork, and all the seams are sealed. Our crews are trained to inspect ductwork along with house construction. Aeroseal, Manual seal work, ACCA/TXU Energy Trained employees, Filtration systems, Ultra Violet Lights, Humidifiers, Dehumidifiers, Zoning systems, Attic Insulation, are a few of the ways we can help your family have Clean Indoor Air.
There Are Three Basic Strategies to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality:
1) Air Cleaners
There are many types and sizes of air cleaners on the market, ranging from relatively inexpensive table-top models to sophisticated and expensive whole-house systems. Some air cleaners are highly effective at particle removal, while others, including most table-top models, are much less so. Air cleaners are generally not designed to remove gaseous pollutants. The effectiveness of an air cleaner depends on how well it collects pollutants from indoor air (expressed as a percentage efficiency rate) and how much air it draws through the cleaning or filtering element (expressed in cubic feet per minute). A very efficient collector with a low air-circulation rate will not be effective, nor will a cleaner with a high air-circulation rate but a less efficient collector. The long-term performance of any air cleaner depends on maintaining it according to the manufacturer's directions.
Another important factor in determining the effectiveness of an air cleaner is the strength of the pollutant source. Table-top air cleaners, in particular, may not remove satisfactory amounts of pollutants from strong nearby sources. People with a sensitivity to particular sources may find that air cleaners are helpful only in conjunction with concerted efforts to remove the source. Over the past few years, there has been some publicity suggesting that houseplants have been shown to reduce levels of some chemicals in laboratory experiments. There is currently no evidence, however, that a reasonable number of houseplants remove significant quantities of pollutants in homes and offices. Indoor houseplants should not be over-watered because overly damp soil may promote the growth of microorganisms which can affect allergic individuals.
At present, EPA does not recommend using air cleaners to reduce levels of radon and its decay products. The effectiveness of these devices is uncertain because they only partially remove the radon decay products and do not diminish the amount of radon entering the home. EPA plans to do additional research on whether air cleaners are, or could become, a reliable means of reducing the health risk from radon. EPA's booklet, Residential Air-Cleaning Devices, provides further information on air-cleaning devices to reduce indoor air pollutants. For most indoor air quality problems in the home, source control is the most effective solution.

2) Source Control
Usually the most effective way to improve indoor air quality is to eliminate individual sources of pollution or to reduce their emissions. Some sources, like those that contain asbestos, can be sealed or enclosed; others, like gas stoves, can be adjusted to decrease the amount of emissions. In many cases, source control is also a more cost-efficient approach to protecting indoor air quality than increasing ventilation because increasing ventilation can increase energy costs. Specific sources of indoor air pollution in your home are listed later in this section.
3) Ventilation Improvements
Another approach to lowering the concentrations of indoor air pollutants in your home is to increase the amount of outdoor air coming indoors. Most home heating and cooling systems, including forced air heating systems, do not mechanically bring fresh air into the house. Opening windows and doors, operating window or attic fans, when the weather permits, or running a window air conditioner with the vent control open increases the outdoor ventilation rate. Local bathroom or kitchen fans that exhaust outdoors remove contaminants directly from the room where the fan is located and also increase the outdoor air ventilation rate. It is particularly important to take as many of these steps as possible while you are involved in short-term activities that can generate high levels of pollutants--for example, painting, paint stripping, heating with kerosene heaters, cooking, or engaging in maintenance and hobby activities such as welding, soldering, or sanding. You might also choose to do some of these activities outdoors, if you can and if weather permits.
