Improve Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality and Improve Your Health
Studies show the air inside your home often has far more dust, chemicals, mold, pollen, and other pollution than the air outside. In fact, the air you breathe in your home could be putting you at risk for health problems ranging from allergies and asthma to colds and headaches.
The good news is you can improve indoor air quality with a little help from Interstate Heating. We offer a wide variety of products to help make air more comfortable and healthy—especially for those already prone to respiratory problems. To get started, consider these five steps to clear and improve your air.

Options for Cleaner Air
- Make Every Room More Comfortable with Zoning
In most new homes, no two rooms are exactly the same or used the same way, so a one-size-fits-all approach to heating and cooling is not always comfortable or cost effective. Instead, we recommend zoning so you can decide what you want the temperature in each to be, and when.
Zoning combines a series of thermostats—often the programmable models—so you can easily adjust temperatures around specific needs or schedules. Motorized dampers in the ductwork then open and close as needed to allow just the right amount of warm or cool air into that area. The result is ideal comfort in every room, without wasting energy.
- Install a Whole-Home Air Purification System
Installed as part of your home’s central heating and cooling system, a whole-home purification system captures and kills up to 98 percent of airborne contaminants—including very small particles and bacteria that regular filters can’t contain. As your system runs for comfort, it can repurify air up to eight times an hour.
- Zap Contaminants with Ultraviolet Light
When you install an ultraviolet light on your air conditioner’s inner coil, it emits an electric charge that kills the bacteria and mold that often grow in this cool, dark environment. These are common causes of respiratory problems, so eliminating them can eliminate a number of health risks
- Control Humidity Levels
Balancing air moisture levels can eliminate the overly dry feeling that makes you itchy in winter, and the stuffy feeling you get on hot, humid summer days. More than a comfort issue, maintaining an ideal humidity level in your home reduces mold, mildew, viruses, and other microorganisms that can make you sick. Humidity between 35 and 55 percent can also mean energy savings by making the air around you feel warmer at lower temperatures and cooler at higher temperatures.
- Change Filters Regularly
Finally, the simplest way to improve air quality is to change filters frequently. If you wait until they are so dirty that they can’t hold any more dust, pet dander, and other particles, your system will have to work harder to move air. Not only does this strain your equipment, it also means those impurities will be blown back into circulation.
