Indoor Air Quality

At Pickerington Heating & Cooling, we often get questions about indoor air quality. Our customers are concerned about unsafe levels of household chemicals, dust, pollen, tobacco smoke, pet dander, cookie odors and more – all contributing to degraded air quality in their homes.

The Environmental Protection Agency has conducted studies that link indoor air quality to allergic reactions, sinusitis, asthma, headaches and rashes. We know that eliminating every source of particulates in your home’s air is almost impossible, but it is relatively simple to make improvements that result in significantly better air quality.

Our Experienced Team Offers Indoor Air Quality Solutions

As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, we offer many cost-effective and efficient solutions to improving your home’s air quality. Our experienced technicians can help identify concerns with the indoor environment of your home, offer expert recommendations, and provide proper installation services.

We have more than 40 years of dedicated service throughout the Columbus, Ohio area. Our goal is always to protect your family’s comfort and help ensure a clean, healthy home air environment.

We offer these proven products to aid in improving the purity of your home’s air:

  • Whole House Humidifiers – These systems introduce needed moisture to heated air from your furnace, helping minimize or prevent damage to wood surfaces and household electronics. Have you ever experienced the “shock” of static electricity? That essentially means your home needs more moisture in the air. When the air in your home is too dry, your family can be vulnerable to illness. Dry air can cause itchy eyes, nosebleeds, cough and parched nasal passages. When your system keeps the humidity within the ideal range, you and your family will feel much more healthy and warmer at lower temperature settings. That’s a net savings of energy without the loss of your comfort!
  • Air Purifiers – An air purifier connects directly into your home’s HVAC system, working to filter pathogens, allergens, and pollutants. Bacteria, pet dander, microscopic bacteria and unwanted odors can’t survive these systems. These systems can protect the air your family breathes from these contaminants, much more than simple filters.
  • Ventilators – One of the speediest ways to improve indoor air quality, these leading-edge ventilation systems exchange indoor stale air with fresh outdoor air. Outgoing air helps pre-condition incoming air to ensure the energy your AC uses isn’t wasted. Ventilators can also help extract humidity from outdoor air before it enters into your home.
  • Ultraviolet Lamps – UV-C lights are a natural disinfectant that penetrates the membranes of tiny microorganisms, destroying and disrupting their DNA. Incorporating them into your central air system, UV germicidal lamps help restore efficiency and extend blower life, improving indoor air quality. Preventing mold and mildew from growing within your cooling equipment (a common problem), germicidal UV fixtures significantly reduce system maintenance requirements.
