The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the air we breath inside our homes and buildings are up to three times more hazardous than the air we breathe outdoors. Today’s homes and buildings are built with tighter envelopes so that air does not move in and out of the building. This means contaminants continue to build up inside form sources such as:
- Pet Dander
- Wood finishes (hard wood floors, furniture and trim)
- Furniture Fabric Chemical Coatings
- Cleaning Products
- and Others..
These increased contaminants can be especially harmful to young children, the elderly, and anyone suffering chronic health issues such as asthma, COPD or the immune suppressed. Davies Air Design offers a full line of indoor air quality products to help improve your indoor air.

In the winter the humidity levels inside your home or business can drop to unhealthy and uncomfortable levels. As this humidity drops you will experience a dry cough, dry mucous membranes, chapped lips and respiratory difficulty for those with asthma or chronic illness. You also notice low humidity levels through frequent static electricity shocks when you touch light switches, appliances or others. Low humidity also means that wood in your home or office shrinks as it dries out. This causes cracks in hardwood flooring, trim and furniture. Also paintings can be severely damaged by low humidity levels. These whole house steam humidifiers add moisture and humidity back to winter indoor air which improves your comfort levels and protects your home furnishings.
In the summer our homes and buildings can have too much humidity inside. As the humidity rises in Mobile, Alabama it means that your indoor air can have too much humidity also. High humidity can also exist in bathrooms, kitchens, basements and laundry rooms. A sign of high humidity levels is mold growth. Mold can only grow at humidity levels above 40%-50%. If you notice mold, must smells or mildew growing in your home or business it most likely means that you have too high humidity levels. Also previous water leaks can introduce more humidity in your home than your air conditioner can remove. Without proper dehumidification mold and bacteria growth can cause serious health effects. These whole house dehumidifiers can remove up to 95 pints or 11.5 gallons of water per day.
