  • "Fortunate to have contacted Farnen & Dermer."
    My gas furnace (1987 vintage, rest in peace) died on a Saturday, November 20, 2021. Cold nights were forecasted. Called several HVAC emergency services with no luck until I reached Farnen & Dermer. Their HVAC tech arrived between 1-2 pm, communicated by text and phone. They deemed the unit unrepairable but offered a reasonable quote for a new gas and AC unit, which could be installed Monday/Tuesday. They also offered financing. After the furnace died again that evening, I checked their website and accepted the quote. Installation was scheduled for Monday morning, and their technicians arrived at 8:15, completing the job by 3:05 pm. Very fortunate to have contacted Farnen & Dermer.

Signs of Unhealthy Indoor Air

Unhealthy indoor air can manifest through several indicators:

  • Presence of Visible Mold or Mildew: Mold growth often signals excessive moisture, potentially causing respiratory problems and allergies.
  • Lingering Stale or Musty Odors: These odors may point to inadequate ventilation or the presence of air pollutants.
  • Accumulation of Excessive Dust: Dust buildup can worsen allergies and respiratory issues, suggesting insufficient air filtration or circulation.
  • Respiratory Symptoms: Coughing, sneezing, wheezing, or shortness of breath may indicate poor indoor air quality, especially for individuals with asthma or allergies.
  • Aggravation of Allergy Symptoms: Indoor worsening of allergy symptoms compared to outdoor environments could indicate indoor air quality deficiencies.
  • Frequent Incidence of Illnesses: Frequent colds, flu, or other illnesses among occupants may indicate poor indoor air quality, as enclosed spaces can facilitate the circulation of pollutants and pathogens.
  • Elevated Humidity Levels: Excessive humidity can foster mold growth, unpleasant odors, and discomfort. Moreover, it can hinder the body's ability to cool itself, increasing the risk of heat-related illnesses.

Regularly monitoring indoor air quality and addressing any issues promptly can help maintain a healthy indoor environment. This might involve improving ventilation, using air purifiers, controlling humidity levels, and avoiding or minimizing the use of products that release harmful pollutants.

Equipment for Better Air Quality

There are several options available for improving indoor air quality in Owings Mills, depending on what needs to be improved. Whether you want to optimize humidity, remove particulates, or kill germs in the air, we can install equipment to make the needed improvements.

More Information:

We can help improve your air quality with:

  • Humidifiers: The humidity in the air has a significant impact on home comfort. A relative humidity level of 45% is ideal for indoor air quality. However, humidity levels drop lower than this in the winter months. A steam humidifier generates steam in your ductwork to help improve humidity levels in your home.
  • Air Cleaners: If the air filter isn’t removing the allergens from the air sufficiently, your indoor air quality can be diminished. A whole-home electronic air cleaner removes up to 99.9% of the allergens in your home’s air. This is helpful for people with allergies and asthma.
  • Air Scrubbers: A combination of UV light technology, molecules of oxygen and hydrogen are used to kill germs, remove odors, and neutralize volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In addition to cleaning the air, this technology helps to keep your ducts free of allergens, germs, and viruses.

Regardless of the type of equipment you choose for your home, you can count on us to help you find the highest quality equipment and handle the installation. Our experienced technicians have the training needed to make sure your air cleaner, air scrubber, or whole-house humidifier is properly installed for optimal air quality.
