Installing the Best Indoor Air Quality System for Your Home

The indoor air in your home could contain 2 to 5 times more pollutants than the outside air, according to the EPA. Well-insulated, tightly sealed modern homes are prone to have poor indoor air quality. To offset the potential impact of indoor pollutants on the overall well-being of your family and your HVAC system, we recommend installing the best indoor air quality system for your home. With an indoor air quality system, the three major components of air contamination can be eliminated, those being allergen particulates; germs, including those that cause infectious disease; and toxic compounds such as the chemicals used in many cleaners.

The Advantages of an Indoor Air Quality System

Indoor air quality systems do what the disposable air filters in HVAC systems don’t. Instead of capturing only about 4% of the particles within your home, air cleaners capture over 99% of airborne particles sized at 0.3 microns. That’s just to name one type of filtration product. Ventilators introduce fresh air into your home and reduce pollutants caused by pets, smoking, chemically enhanced cleaners, and cooking. Ultraviolet lights kill bacteria and mold that could otherwise grow on your indoor coil and circulate throughout your home.
