Indoor air quality doesn’t just impact the smell of your home, it also plays a significant role in how healthy you feel. Not only can viruses and other germs flourish indoors during the winter months, but dry, dirty air sometimes causes symptoms that mimic allergies and illness. Your trusted HVAC technician can help you clean up indoor air pollution, so you and your family breathe easy through spring and beyond.


Some companies address indoor air pollution with the most expensive solution possible, even when it’s not as efficient as a cheaper option. You need a technician that will work to identify the source of your air quality problems and pinpoint the most appropriate solution. Whole-house air purification isn’t the answer for every situation, and it’s not your only option. The right HVAC company will provide:

  • Improved system maintenance
  • Upgraded HVAC filters
  • Air duct clean services
  • Air cleaning devices
  • Improved ventilation
  • Humidity control
  • Whole-home air purification

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. And viruses and bacteria are more prevalent in the winter because they thrive in the cool, dry air. No wonder the flu is such a problem during the winter months. Other contributing factors to your indoor air quality include:

  • Dust and smoke
  • Pollen and pet dander
  • Cleaning chemicals
  • Gas-off from building materials
  • Mold and radon

It’s possible for some homeowners to contain some of these contaminants on their own. Others need a professional to help out. A dependable HVAC service can help you figure out which types of pollutants are making you feel sick.
