People spend a lot of their time indoors, whether it’s at work or home. And because we’re inside nearly all the time, having clean air is crucial to our health. However, according to the EPA, indoor air pollution ranks as one of the most serious environmental concerns we face because our indoor air is often more polluted than the outdoor air. Call Anderson Heating & Cooling and let us show you how our air filtration systems and whole home air cleaners can help.

What Makes Indoor Air So Dirty?
People suffer from a host of problems caused by dirty air in the home. From breathing issues to dust buildup, the air quality in your home is likely worse than you think. So, what makes your house’s air so dirty?
- Fuel-burning appliances
- Dust mites
- New flooring or upholstery
- Household cleaning products
- HVAC systems
The problem is that most people don’t get enough ventilation to flush out the contaminants and instead breathe them in every day, which leads to respiratory problems and other health issues.
If you’re getting too much mold buildup, ask us about our dehumidifiers.
How an Air Filtration System Helps
The first and best way to getting cleaner indoor air is to increase the ventilation to bring in fresh air from outside. Open doors and windows when weather permits to purify the air inside. Beyond that, it’s wise to consider adding an air purifier to your home. The most effective of these systems is a whole house air cleaner that works in tandem with your HVAC to trap particles as the air passes through. Another weapon to use in the fight for cleaner indoor air is a UV filter. These inexpensive devices ‘zap’ airborne bacteria and viruses before they have a chance to affect you. Lastly, if you don’t have a central air unit, you can still get clean air via a portable room air filter. Whatever your situation, Anderson Heating & Cooling has an air filtration system that’s perfect for you.
