What Are the Best Systems to Install for Better Indoor Air Quality?

Take advantage of certain home improvements to clean the air you breathe.

Air filters and purifiers rarely get top billing when it comes to home improvements, but maybe they should. The quality of your indoor air has a tremendous impact on your health. It can also cause considerable wear and tear on your belongings and your home’s construction.

So what are the best air filters and air purifiers to install?

  • HVAC add-on units: Carrier®, Trane, Lennox, and other major heating and cooling equipment manufacturers make air purification units you can install onto your furnace, air conditioning unit, and ductwork. Air flows through these systems and is delivered throughout your home, so it makes sense to filter and purify it at the same time.
    These units use a mixture of capture and decontamination to clean the air. A filter of varying thickness can be used to remove particles of dust, mold, and pet dander from the air, while a UV light component breaks them down.
  • Humidifiers and dehumidifiers: Moisture content in the air has a big impact on your comfort. It also has the potential to destroy your belongings and even your home’s construction. Mold isn’t just unsightly. It releases mytotoxins as it grows and spreads, and some of them can be deadly. It’s very important to address mold concerns immediately. In the meantime, prevent mold by keeping the humidity in your home between 30 and 50 percent.
  • EnergyStar units: Products with an EnergyStar label use less energy to perform their jobs well. They can save a considerable amount on cost, and they’re better for the environment. Additionally, some of them qualify for special financing or community grants and tax credits. Charleston-area residents may be surprised at how affordable buying these units can be.
