We Provide Healthy Sales and Service for Your Indoor Air Quality Systems
When it comes to your home’s indoor air quality, the adage “what you can’t see won’t hurt you” couldn’t be further from the truth. Many microscopic organisms float through the air of even the cleanest homes: bacteria, pollen, dust mites, mold spores, viruses, pet dander, and more.
An indoor air quality system installed by SOS Xtreme Comfort can help reduce your exposure to these contaminants.
Our Indoor Air Quality Products
Homes today are tightly sealed for energy efficiency, but the homeowners within still need fresh air! That’s where air exchangers come in. Air exchangers provide whole-house ventilation to improve your indoor air quality and comfort. They bring in fresh air, warmed or cooled as necessary, through mechanical ventilation.
Air purifiers and air cleaners offer unique levels of efficiency and air filtration. When equipped with a HEPA media filter, air cleaners can filter out and remove airborne contaminants down to the size of 0.1 micron. Other air cleaners use an electrical charge to remove indoor air pollutants down to 1 micron in size. At SOS Xtreme Comfort, we can help you select the right type for your needs.
Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers
Humidity control is important to a comfortable home, and maintaining a moderate level of humidity has other benefits, too. If your home becomes too humid, it can feel uncomfortably warm (warmer than it really is), and odors may linger in the air. Humidity can also encourage unhealthy and destructive mold growth. When your indoor air is too dry, you may experience allergy-like symptoms, including dry skin and a scratchy throat. Whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers can help normalize in-home humidity, maintaining it at the proper level.
UV Germicidal Lamps
Intense UV rays have been shown to limit the spread of germs and mold, so engineers have created UV light modules for your home HVAC system. We can install these lamps inside your heating and cooling system to improve indoor air quality, often in tandem with whole-home air cleaners and filtration.
Modern thermostats can be programmed to suit your schedule and automatically adjust your HVAC system to your desired levels. Further, most programmable thermostats can also be remotely controlled with your preferred mobile phone or device. You can make home temperature adjustments or turn systems on/off on the fly, from almost anywhere. These thermostats offer the ultimate in convenience, and they also help you save energy and money.

When you use our online code, you can easily find and order the right filters for your system and get them delivered to your doorstep as needed.
Minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) is a rating system that is ranked on a scale between 1 and 20. The higher the number, the more effective the filter is at trapping smaller pollutants and allergens. Air filters rated MERV 16 and above are typically reserved for commercial or clinical settings, such as a hospital or laboratory. If used in a residential application, they may restrict the flow of air, reducing efficiency and placing stress on your HVAC system. We recommend air filters with a MERV rating between 5 and 8.
Benefits of Improving Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality
Contaminants circulating in your ducts and HVAC system can enter your loved ones’ bodies via the eyes, ears, noses, and mouths – increasing the odds of asthma, irritated extremities, and illness. Installing an indoor air quality system can reduce your family’s exposure to these irritants.
Untreated air can become stale, too, which can affect family members’ energy levels. Air that is too dry or too damp can hurt your home’s furniture and structure as well. Fortunately, installing an indoor air quality system can help.
