Indoor Air Quality

Do you need to replace your HVAC system? It is the perfect time to consider making some air quality improvements as well. Your trusted HVAC professional can provide you with numerous ways you can improve your indoor air quality. But these conversations can often lead to information overload. Keeping that in mind, we’ve come up with a list of the most common air quality options that are available to homeowners. Read below where we have provided a few details about each.

Installing an Air Cleaner

Seasonal allergy sufferers, pet owners, and also homeowners who are sensitive to germs and smells will all appreciate a whole home air purifier. There are many different kinds of house air purifiers, including UV lamps (also referred to as UV air purifiers), electrostatic filters, ozone generators, HEPA purifiers, and also plasma generation systems, to name a few. Each of these different types of air scrubbers will drastically reduce the bacteria, mold, and also dander levels in your homes, making it much easier to breathe.

Taking Care of Your Ductwork

If you’ll already be working on updating your HVAC system; it is a great time to replace your HVAC ductwork or have it professionally cleaned. When you discuss replacing your HVAC unit(s) with your technician, ask them to look at your ductwork and make some recommendations. Your ductwork could be full of allergens and pollutants. It may simply need to be cleaned, or it could be grossly out of design and be costing you money – or both.

Invest in a Humidity Control System

Humidity controls are a huge hit with homeowners living in the Southeastern US. We constantly battle humidity in our homes. Installing a whole-house dehumidifier could make your life infinitely easier; and also your indoor air quality much better.

Install a Smart Thermostat with Zoning

Smart thermostats are one of the best ways to have complete control over your indoor air quality and your new HVAC system. When you include zoning, you can easily adjust the temperatures in each room of your house.

Upgrading your indoor air quality options right along with your new HVAC system makes good financial sense.
