Indoor Air Quality Products & Services in Columbia

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), if enough outdoor air doesn’t enter your home, indoor pollutant levels can increase. This situation can potentially cause discomfort and health problems, particularly among those who suffer from allergies and asthma. This issue is prevalent in new homes, which tend to be insulated well and sealed; however, older homes also can be culprits for poor indoor air quality.

During the winter months, when doors and windows are kept closed, trapped indoor air can make indoor living spaces stuffy and uncomfortable. Signs that your home may not have proper ventilation include condensation on walls and windows, dirty air conditioning or heating vents, and biological growth in the bathroom.

Air ventilation levels are measured through an air exchange rate. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) recommends a 0.35 total volume of air changes per hour taking place between indoor and outdoor air.

Indoor Air Quality Products

Krantz Kooling and Heating’s service technicians are committed to helping you achieve healthy indoor air quality for your home. Learn about some of the products we offer to help you boost the air quality inside your home. We can guarantee 100 percent satisfaction.

Air Cleaners

Central air cleaners help clean the air as it flows through your home’s HVAC system. Furnace filters are some of the most common types of air cleaners you can find. They’re available as mechanical filters, also called flat or panel filters, and pleated filters. Electronic air filters are usually referred to as electrostatic precipitators or charged-media filters.

Air Purifiers

Portable air purifiers use fans to draw air into the units, filter the air and then release the filtered air back into the rooms of your home. Mechanical filters inside the unit absorb particulates. Some models contain activated carbon to absorb odors and smaller pre-filters that attract and trap large particles in the air. Contact Krantz to learn more about air purification.

Air Humidifiers

When your home’s indoor air feels dry, air humidifiers can ensure proper humidity levels in your home. If the relative humidity in the air registers below 30 percent, then consider using a humidifier. There are two types of air humidifiers: cool-mist and warm-mist units.

Home Ventilators

Outdoor air enters and leaves your home through infiltration, natural ventilation and mechanical ventilation. Mechanical ventilators help you facilitate the flow of fresh air inside your home while exhausting stale air at the same time.

I wish all businesses had this kind of customer service! These guys are hard-working, kind, fast, and thorough. After we received a new unit from them, my husband mentioned it to a co-worker . . . last count, 9 of his co-workers have called Krantz Kooling & Heating based on our experience, and they have exceeded expectations every time. We wouldn't think of using anyone else!read more

I am a commercial property manager with one of the top firms in SC. I have been doing business with Krantz since '07, and these guys are top notch in both commercial and residential HVAC services. Much like finding a good plumber or electrician, it is not easy to find a good HVAC company that you can trust. With Krantz, you can confidently rest assured they have your best interest in heart for your next quarterly preventative maintenance or energy savings HVAC project. Local family that cares about local people, yet professional and always competitively priced.read more

The very best when it comes to customer service satisfaction, before replacing any hardware and making you spend to much. Rest assured Krantz cooling will go above and beyond to fix or troubleshoot your unit before replacing it. Saving you time and money. Very reliable and very trust worthy people. Not just once they helped me but twice, especially on a cold winter night spare of the moment kinda thing. 2003 The week before I was deployed to Iraq Krantz Cooling & Heating fixed my AC unit I was rest assured my family was safe and sound with no trouble. I highly recommend Krantz Cooling & Heating for your services.read more
