Improve Indoor Air Quality

How To Improve Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality problems can take a toll on your family’s comfort and health. Dust, particulates, household chemicals, and allergens accumulate, making the air in your home even dirtier than the air in a large, crowded city, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Stale indoor air and heating systems that have not been properly maintained contribute to a number of harmful allergens and bacteria circulating through your home including dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores. These lead to unwanted health issues.

Types of Air Purifiers

HEPA Air Cleaners

High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration systems can significantly reduce fine-particulate matter in the air and combat indoor air pollution. Tested and trusted, HEPA air filters are built for reliability and have the capability to remove nearly all allergy-aggravating contaminants, including some of the smallest particles and bacteria. Designed to function at a significantly higher level than standard air filters, it removes 99.97% of particles in the air, including dust, mold, viruses, bacteria, tobacco smoke, unpleasant odors and more. The sealed design of the HEPA system prevents particles from bypassing the filter and recirculating in your home, keeping the air fresh and clean. Maintenance of these systems is easy, with recommended annual filter changes these systems are both an affordable and effective solution to purify the air in your home or business. 

The Benefits of HEPA Air Purification System

  • True HEPA filters/systems are Tested and Approved
  • The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology dictates that a HEPA filter must trap 99.97% of particulates 0.3 microns or larger. 
  • Reduces the number of harmful particles in the air.
  • Improves Indoor air quality and can help reduce allergy symptoms.
  • Efficient, reliable and easy to maintain. 


UV or Ultraviolet Light Cleaners

Ultraviolet Light air cleaners are a form of technology intended to substantially improve air quality and remove detrimental microbial particles that may be present in the air. UV air filters kill these particles without any actual filtration, but rather with rays of ultraviolet light that incinerate them as they pass through it. These air purifiers can help those with asthma, lung complications, or allergies


We can also make winter more comfortable with a whole-home humidifier that works with a heating system to raise the moisture level to a more comfortable level that your body is used to throughout the house – improving your comfort and health as well as safeguarding your home and furnishings against the damaging effects of over-dry air.

Our humidity systems do not require the daily cleaning or disinfecting that portable units need, and there is no reservoir of standing water where microbial organisms can breed.


Adding humidity in winter can also reduce your heating bills. Air that is properly humidified feels warmer and more comfortable than dry air, so you can set the thermostat to a lower temperature without sacrificing your comfort.
