Indoor Air Quality
Another important factor in indoor air quality is humidification. The recommended indoor humidity levels in winter should be around 30 to 40%. Wintry cold air holds less moisture, and when it is heated indoors becomes even drier, setting the stage for itchy dry skin, sinus attacks, dry eyes and the like. We like to suggest a steam humidifier as it is more efficient in providing humidification.

Heat Recovery Ventilator
The essence of proper ventilation is a continuous flow of clean, fresh air as well as the removal of stale, polluted air. These are also key factors in optimal indoor air quality and good health. By simply changing the air in the home we can expel excess moisture created by cooking, cleaning, breathing and other sources, greatly reducing condensation and preventing mould and mildew. All of the incoming air is filtered to remove dusts, pollens and other contaminants and at the same time VOCs (Volatile organic compounds) and odors of all types are expelled from the house, making your home fresher and healthier.
While your thinking of replacing components of your heating system, may we suggest that you consider an HRV. (Heat Recovery Ventilator)

Air Scrubber Plus
Air Scrubber Plus® with ActivePure™ technology reduces up to 99.9% of the harmful contaminants throughout your home.
Air Scrubber Plus® ensures that air ducts, tables, furniture, countertops, bathrooms, doorknobs, and practically every surface you touch is cleaner and safer for your family. It’s as simple as turning on your fan, furnace, or air conditioning system.
Once installed, Air Scrubber Plus® goes to work right away by copying the power of nature outside to clean your home inside. As air passes through the unit, it is transformed by our unique technology. ActivePure™ scrubbers then travel through the ductwork into every corner of your home, effectively treating and purifying the entire house.
In only 30 minutes our technology reduces over 90% of the pathogens in the air – which is 50 times more powerful than normal HVAC filtration. These scrubbers work 24/7 in your living environment, continuously reducing airborne and surface contaminants, mold, dust, pollen and odors. Germicidal UV light rays have been used for decades by the medical industry as a method for cleaning the air. However, germicidal UV light is only effective in reducing the airborne contaminants that pass directly through the light rays.
Air Scrubber Plus® with ActivePure™ technology actively sends scrubbers into the environment to reduce contaminants on surfaces as well as airborne pollutants. In addition to removing airborne contaminants, ActivePure™ technology is also highly effective on gases, vapors, VOCs, and odors.
