You can't see the dust, pollen, mold spores and other microscopic particles that get blown throughout your house by a typical forced-air HVAC system, but you probably experience their effects.
All of these tiny elements contribute to indoor air pollution, which is sometimes referred to as "sick building syndrome." Indoor air pollution is a serious health hazard that can cause or worsen ailments such as eye irritation, allergies, asthma, headaches and skin rashes.
Innovative Basement Systems uses the Breathe EZ Air Cleaner to resolve indoor air quality issues that can make your home or building uncomfortable and even dangerous. Schedule an indoor air quality estimate with us today to see if this product is the right fit for you!

What many people don't understand is that the primary purpose of a standard HVAC system air filter is to protect the HVAC system's blower motor. This filter is designed to capture large dust particles that can collect on fan blades and bearings. The filter will not capture small dust particles, mold spores, allergens, airborne bacteria, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and unpleasant odors. As a result, your HVAC system ends up blowing indoor air pollutants around the house.
Hardware stores and home centers stock more-expensive electrostatic and pleated air filters for HVAC systems. These filters rely on "static cling" and/or a tight weave to achieve finer filtration. However these filters have a serious problem: They can clog quickly, which cuts air flow while straining the blower motor. It's irritating and expensive to replace these filters when they get dirty.
Breathe EZ Air Cleaners are effective and easy to use.
Building scientists discovered that electronic air filtration can trap airborne pollutants effectively without clogging the filter media. The Breathe EZ Air Cleaner is one of the best examples of this new technology.
The Breathe EZ Air Cleaner doesn't rely on a fine fabric to trap dust particles. Instead, it electrically charges particles of all sizes, so that they "cling" to filter media that is charged in the opposite way.
This dust-trapping method works with an open-weave filter media that doesn't restrict air flow through your HVAC system. The Breathe EZ Air Cleaner also contains carbon strips that absorb odors and chemicals commonly found in your indoor air.
The Breathe EZ Air Cleaner is made in different sizes to fit a wide variety of HVAC systems. Innovative Basement Systems technicians are trained to install Breathe EZ in your existing system. They will also show you how to swap out the filter media inside the Breathe EZ quickly and easily. This maintenance should be done about 4 times a year.
To protect your family from indoor air pollution and save money on your energy bills, put the Breathe EZ Air Cleaner to work in your house.
