As winter draws nearer, days get shorter and the weather gets colder, most Lake Zurich residents find themselves spending more and more time indoors. That means more time breathing indoor air, and if you use forced hot air to heat your home, that air is likely to be dry and difficult to breathe.

To stay comfortable and healthy all winter long, you’ll need to concern yourself not only with temperature but also with indoor air quality. Keeping the quality of air in your home high is a great way to ease asthma and allergy symptoms and improve your overall quality of life, especially in those cold winter months.

Indoor Air Quality Products and Services

The HVAC industry has spent decades creating products that can help make the air in your home more breathable. Here are some of the systems we install, repair and maintain.

  • Air purification systems and air cleaners are your frontal assault on the causes of poor air quality. They remove contaminants from your indoor air, relieving allergy symptoms.
  • Humidifiers, as their name implies, add humidity directly to your indoor air. Maintaining a good humidity level will ease asthma symptoms and help preserve your wooden furniture.
  • Ventilators are designed to work with your other climate control systems. They exchange stale indoor air for fresh outdoor air, without sacrificing heating or cooling efficiency.
  • UV lights zap away bacteria and other contaminants, preventing them from causing illness. We don’t recommend UV lights as a standalone air quality option, but they can be a good complement to your other HVAC systems.

Our technicians will be happy to work with you and find the right IAQ options for your home.
