Improve Your Home's Air Quality

We all need air to breathe - and the quality of the air we are taking in is important. While outside environmental factors seem to be at the forefront of everyone's mind, the air we breathe inside is oftentimes 5x worse than outdoor air!

Bring into that equation allergies, those with compromised or fragile immune systems, babies, elderly... you can see how quickly our vulnerable members of society can be victims of poor indoor air quality.


A lot of the things we think are improving our indoor air quality are actually making it worse by masking the problem. Most candles, air fresheners, cleaning supplies, and even our building materials can be full of chemicals that can have an adverse impact on our health.


Some of the things you can incorporate into your cleaning routine that will help cut down on dust, dander, and other allergens are:

-Cleaning your drapes/curtains on a regular basis

-Vacuuming and mopping on a regular basis (Bonus points if your vacuum has a HEPA filter!)

-Cleaning your upholstered furniture where these contaminants can be hiding

-Dusting surfaces regularly

-Cleaning blinds and ceiling fans

Our job at Outstanding Heating and Cooling is to do our best to help you minimize the impact those things have on your health.


Your HVAC system plays a major role in filtering out those contaminants and pollutants in order to keep you and your family as healthy as possible.


All of the air in your home passes through your HVAC system. While your filter (if you change it regularly) does its job of filtering some contaminants, it can't possibly get everything out of the air or minimize the ability for viruses and contagious particles to pass through the air.


A whole-home indoor air purifier is one tool in your belt you can use to reduce these contaminants by up to 99%. We have several options of whole-home purifiers that will be able to give you piece of mind with studies backed by science to prove how effective they are in reducing things such as allergies, viruses, and more.


We also can incorporate a whole-home humidity control system which vastly improves air quality and also the ability of viruses and things to be transmitted through your air. Did you know that viruses and allergens can be transmitted more easily through dry air than they can in properly humidified air?
