Up to 90% of our time is spent indoors and much of that time is spent at home. Polluted air in your home can negatively affect your family's health. EPA studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicate that indoor air levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times and occasionally more than 100 times, higher than outdoor levels. We offer a variety of air filtration systems that provide your family with the cleanest air available.
Unlike outdoor air, indoor air is recycled again and again. This causes it to trap and build up pollutants. Common pollutants include dust, mold and spores, pollen, pet dander and smoke.
Knowing what causes poor indoor air quality and how to detect the problem areas is the first step to cleaner air and a healthier living environment. Some illnesses related to poor indoor air quality may include headaches, nose bleed, fatigue, bronchitis, eye irritation, sinus irritation, dizziness, and symptoms of asthma.

TRANE CleanEffects™ utilizes patented, breakthrough air cleaning technology to remove up to an astounding 99.98% of airborne allergens from the air that passes through the filter, making it 8 times more effective than even the best HEPA room filters and up to 100 times more effective than a standard 1" filter. What's more, TRANE CleanEffects™ has been performance-tested by LMS Technologies and Environmental Health and Engineering, Inc. (EH&E), and the results verified by professors from the Harvard School of Public Health, so you know you're getting an air filtration system like no other.
The Bryant Perfect Air™ Electronic Air Cleaner is an advanced and easy-to-use, whole-house solution that traps and filters up to 98% of pollutants from the air passing through your heating and cooling system. This advanced air cleaner captures microscopic impurities like dust, smoke and smog particles in addition to larger particles like mold spores and cat dander. It works by placing an electric charge on airborne particles, and then collecting the charged pollutants like a magnet. Plus, you can say goodbye to monthly filter replacements by simply washing the air cleaner cells in your dishwasher or sink.
A standard 1” furnace filter offers only limited capture of airborne particles and pollutants compared to the 4” deep-pleated media filter found in a Bryant EZ Flex Media Air Cleaner. Deep pleated filters take several square feet of filtration material and fold it over and over to provide several times the surface area of filtration material versus a standard 1” filter. The result is highly effective cleaning efficiency against even the smallest particles.
Humidifiers add much needed moisture to our indoor environment. Especially in Michigan’s climate humidifiers are a must. Ever experience a shock when you touch something? That shock is telling you that there is not enough moisture in the air. Shocks are sometimes devastating to electrical equipment and hi-tech equipment. Does your hard wood floor tend to separate in the winter months? This is also due to lack of moisture in your home.
Adding moisture to your environment by way of a Whole House Humidifier will eliminate shocks, separated hard wood floors; it will add moisture to your skin and help your house plants thrive. It will also make your body believe it is really warmer that it is, thus allowing you to set the thermostat down a degree or two, and saving money on energy bills. A Whole House Humidifier works with your homes heating system, typically a forced air furnace. When the furnace is running, moisture from the humidifier is being added and shot through the duct system and finally delivered through the vents in your home.

Carbon Monoxide is a dangerous gas that can build up in enclosed spaces in your home. Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas often formed in the process of incomplete combustion of organic substances, including fuels.
It is estimated that unintentional CO exposure accounts for an estimated 500 deaths in the United States each year. Poisoning contributes annually to more than 2,000 deaths in the United States. In addition, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that 8,000 to 15,000 people each year are examined or treated in hospitals for non-fire related CO poisoning. Breathed over long periods of time, low concentrations of CO may also contribute to other illness. Fortunately, simple measures can be taken to prevent CO problems. One such action is the installation of a CO alarm to detect potentially deadly conditions.

No matter how well designed or built, every home has areas that are difficult to heat or cool. A single thermostat can't possibly keep track of temperatures throughout the entire home. And, because hot air rises and cool air falls it's even worse when you have a second story. High ceilings, two-story entrances, large windows, skylights and fireplaces all affect your indoor comfort. In addition, external conditions that change throughout the day, including heat from the sun or shade from a large tree can greatly influence your comfort inside. Most standard heating and cooling systems aren’t equipped to handle these variables, so you compensate by overheating or over-cooling some areas to make others comfortable. That’s an inefficient way to keep your home comfortable.
Carmichael Heating & Air Conditioning offers the Zone Perfect System. Zone Perfect System from Bryant compensates for the temperature variations in your home. It can divide your indoor environment into several distinct areas, each with its own thermostat. These individual thermostats monitor indoor temperatures and send information to a central controller which decides how to best distribute heated or cooled air to the separate zones. It’s like having a separate system for each area. For even greater energy savings and personalized comfort control, a Honeywell programmable thermostat in each zone allows you to create up to four separate comfort settings per zone, per day.
Programmable thermostats automatically adjust your home's temperature settings, allowing you to save energy while you're away or sleeping. They are more convenient and accurate than manual thermostats and improve your home's comfort while they help you save energy. They contain no mercury, like many conventional thermostats and they use less energy, so they're better for the environment. Programmable thermostats save energy by offering convenient, pre-programmed temperature settings - settings that try to anticipate when it's convenient for you to scale back on heating or cooling. If you are like many homeowners and work outside the home during the day and have a different schedule on the weekend, a programmable thermostat can offer many benefits, and the return on your investment is usually within 1 year.
Control Temperature, Humidification, Dehumidification and Ventilation from one device. Honeywell’s new Pro8000 is easy to use with battery backup and backlit touch screen display. It features top-of-the-line features and intuitive programming logic that responds to contractor’s needs and homeowner's choices with simple, touch screen interaction.
Expert duct cleaning from Carmichael Heating & Air Conditioning could be the healthiest home improvement you'll ever make.
Have your ducts cleaned with the most advanced cleaning and removal equipment available. Indoor air pollution can cause or aggravate a variety of health problems from headaches and sinus irritation to allergies and asthma. Your heating or cooling system furnace can spread the dust, dirt, pollen, animal dander and other contaminants that collect in your duct work into your home's air.
Faced with the importance of indoor air quality, people are looking at air duct cleaning as a way to solve indoor air quality problems. Even high-quality heating and cooling system components can become contaminated with pollen, dust, mold and other debris. These contaminants may cause allergic reactions in some sensitive people.
Professional and experienced duct cleaning from Carmichael Heating & Air Conditioning cleans all of the various heating and cooling system components of forced air systems. These components include the supply- and return- air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing and the air handling unit housing. Carmichael Heating & Air Conditioning offers comprehensive duct cleaning. It is important to have all of the components cleaned so that your system will not become contaminated by un-cleaned parts.
Carmichael Heating & Air Conditioning takes preventative steps to protect your home and family from exposure to dislodged contaminants during the cleaning process. We utilize HEPA filtration on the cleaning equipment.

Today's homes are built to conserve energy with tighter construction and better insulation. Unfortunately, that means your home can also trap and re-circulate airborne particles, gases, unpleasant odors and moisture in your living areas. As a part of your home comfort system, a fresh air ventilator can refresh and revitalize indoor air, removing unseen pollutants while maintaining system efficiency. It's as if you opened your windows and let the fresh air in without losing your heating or cooling comfort. The high-efficiency core transfers heating or cooling energy from exiting stale indoor air to the incoming outdoor air. The air streams DO NOT mix, yet you continue to enjoy heating or cooling comfort and economy. The core also helps maintain proper humidity to maximize comfort. To maintain optimum performance, Bryant fresh air ventilators are designed for easy maintenance. The filters and the high-efficiency core can be removed and cleaned without using tools. Or, contact us for professional cleaning and maintenance of your entire home comfort system to ensure years of peak performance and comfort.
