Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is important for every home, especially those with occupants suffering from asthma or allergies. EPA studies show that even in the smoggiest cities, the air inside most modern homes is usually at least ten times more polluted than the air outside. Why is this?

There are a variety of reasons that account for poor air quality in a home:

  • Radon and CO2 leeching into a home
  • Gas-emitting chemicals used to make carpeting, drapery, household cleaners, and furniture
  • Airborne pollutants such as pollen, viruses, dust, and dust mites
  • Damp areas that can breed mold, mildew, and other microbes

How modern homes are constructed can also be a strong factor in poor air quality. Energy efficiency demands homes be built as air-tight as possible, but this can lead to stale air, irritants and chemicals, and the aforementioned airborne pollutants becoming trapped and continuously cycled throughout the home.

Poor air quality can lead to eye irritation, sinus congestion, sneezing, runny nose, stuffiness, colds, flu, headaches, dizziness, outbreaks of allergies and asthma, sore throats, and various other respiratory ailments.

For these reasons, DG Heating & Cooling is here to help with your home's IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) by offering a variety of systems and solutions. Many of the furnaces and heat pump systems we install can be enhanced with various air filtration systems. We also offer the installation of other standalone air filtering systems such as:

  • Steam Humidifiers
  • Dehumidification Systems

What is a Whole-Home Air Cleaner?

Another solution to help better your home's air is a whole-home air cleaner. Whole-home air cleaners make your air as clean as possible by removing airborne particulates - vital to those with allergies and asthma. A whole-home air cleaner installed by DG Heating & Cooling in correlation with your HVAC equipment can help rid your home of dust, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, pollen, bacteria and viruses, smoke, and more!

How Does a Whole-Home Air Cleaner Work?

Air cleaners are installed as part of your home’s central heating and cooling system. This means each and every time your heating and cooling system runs, the air in your home is filtered through a state-of-the-art filter media removing potentially harmful contaminants. The resulting clean air is distributed via your heating and cooling system’s ductwork throughout the entire home.
