Air Filtration

Keeping the air in your buildings clean is as simple as regularly replacing your furnace filters  (pre-filters and primary filters). Unfortunately, many buildings have blocked, torn or missing air filters. People sometimes select the wrong type of filter or don’t replace the filter when they should. Rental properties are especially vulnerable (unless you opt for a Scheduled Preventive Maintenance Program). As a result, problems with air filters contribute to HVAC system complaints and failures.

A dirty air filter (or wrong type of filter) restricts the airflow into your system’s air handler. This restricted airflow places additional strain on the furnace fan motor and could, over time, burn out the motor and cause your system to overheat and ultimately fail. Filter replacement is a small price to pay to extend to life of one of the biggest financial investments in your business.

You may be surprised to learn that simply using the most efficient filter available is generally not the right answer. This is because as filter efficiency increases, there is a corresponding increase in the level of airflow resistance. A highly efficient filter may restrict airflow to a level that will damage your HVAC system by placing additional strain on the fan motor. Contact Wojo’s for a free filter inspection. We are happy to help you make a wise choice.

Health & Comfort – If your air filtration is poor, your A/C and Furnace pushes dirty air full of dust and allergens throughout your building. These contaminants are re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in your air ducts.

Cost Savings – A dirty air filter makes your fan motor work harder and consume more energy. HVAC systems in typical commercial buildings are responsible for more than 40 percent of total energy use. One of the easiest and quickest ways to reduce your firm’s energy bill is to replace your air filter.

Air Duct – A dirty air filter makes your heating and air-conditioning systems and your ducts get dirty faster. This can lead to costly cleaning expenses or to a need to replace your units sooner than you expected.

Air Purification

The air in your building is under constant attack from dust, pollen, mold spores, and dust mite feces, which trigger allergies in sensitive people. Air purifiers are used to reduce the concentration of airborne contaminants and are useful for people who suffer from allergies and asthma. Smoke particles and volatile organic compounds also pose a risk to health. To combat these contaminants, Wojo’s offers air purifiers that are capable of capturing nearly all bacterial, viruses, and damaging particulates.

Wojo’s offers the Lennox PureAir air purification system, which is on par with systems found in surgery rooms in hospitals. The PureAir air purification system eliminates over 95% of particles such as dust, pet dander and pollen down to the 0.3 Micron size, over 90% of micro-organisms and bio aerosols such as mold spores, dust mites, and bacteria down to the 0.01 micron and approximately 50% of VOCs such as those from cleaning supplies, solvents and other chemical vapors as well as odors. The UVA lamps aid the system in eliminating these odors by activating the catalyst on the PureAir insert, which turns them into harmless carbon dioxide and water.

Humidity Control

Humidity seems to come in just two levels: too much and too little. Both are uncomfortable and both are bad for your health, your employees and customers. Humidity refers to the amount of water vapor in the air. Dehumidifiers and humidifiers are devices that regulate the humidity in your building. Indoor humidity levels should ideally remain between 30 and 50 percent.

Humidifiers - Winter

During the winter, heating systems dry out the air in your building. The indoor humidity levels of furnace-heated air can drop to 10 percent or less.

Integrating a humidifier into your buildings HVAC system adds much-needed moisture to the air. Humidifiers have several benefits. Humidifiers ease the symptoms of dry skin and chapped lips. Increased humidity also soothes dryness, irritation or itchiness in the nose, nasal passages, sinuses, mouth, throat and eyes. Humidifiers benefit people with a cold, flu or allergies. Low humidity levels worsen symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.

Our knowledgeable staff will help you select the humidity control system that is best for you and your business.

Dehumidifiers - Summer

Excessive humidity creates an environment where mold, mildew and bacteria thrive. When your air conditioning system can’t keep up, turn to a dehumidifier. Using patented technology, a Humiditrol dehumidification system helps maintain optimal moisture levels, and manages the moisture for greater comfort and improved indoor air quality.
