Indoor Air Quality at Home

If You Have Residential Air Quality Problems, Cubby Has Solutions

Keeping your in-home air clean and free of contaminants is a key to your family’s health and well-being, which is why Cubby offers high-quality, efficient, indoor air quality (IAQ) equipment for every budget and home. Products that ensure and maintain indoor air quality have become an essential part of modern life.

IAQ: Know the Problems

  • Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors; the air inside your home can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air.*
  • Up to half of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by indoor air pollution.**
  • Levels of certain hazardous pollutants in indoor air have been found, in some cases, to be up to 70 times greater than levels in outdoor air*
  • For one out of six people who suffer from allergies, there is a direct relationship between their symptoms and the presence of fungi and bacteria in their home’s air duct system+
  • Children and the elderly are especially vulnerable to health problems caused by, or made worse by, polluted indoor air.++

IAQ: Know the Solutions

As a leader in the installation and service of indoor air quality products, Cubby is committed to keeping the air in your home clean and healthy. Here are some of the products we offer that can help you breathe easier.

Whole-house Humidifiers

Dry air in the winter and excess moisture in the summer causes a host of problems. A humidification system ensures proper humidity levels in your home. This reduces respiratory problems, saves energy, increases comfort and protects home furnishings.

Whole House Air Cleaners

High-efficiency media air cleaners remove up to 98 times more particles than a standard one-inch filter. Your air will be cleaner throughout your home and your heating and cooling system will run more efficiently.

Ultraviolet-Light Air Purifier

Even if you install one of the most advanced air cleaners on the market, disease-causing organisms, such as germs and bacteria, may still compromise the quality of your home’s air. An ultraviolet (UV) light air-treatment system is an effective solution. UV light is deadly to mold, bacteria and other organisms.

UV germicidal lights can help if you or family members suffer from respiratory allergies and asthma, frequent colds and flu, headaches and symptoms such as a runny nose itchy or watery eyes, sore throat and fatigue.

Ventilation Systems

While today’s energy-efficient homes do a great job of keeping heated or cooled air in, they can also trap stale, contaminated air inside. A ventilating system, also known as an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) or Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV), can be an effective solution.

Ventilators remove dangerous gases from your home by exchanging fresh, clean outdoor air for the “dirty” air inside. What’s more, they can do this with no loss of heated or cooled air so there is no waste of valuable energy.
