How Different Air Quality Can Benefit Your Missouri Home

When it comes to improving your home’s air quality, there are several systems that you can turn to depending on your needs. From whole-home air filtration systems to UV air purifiers and humidifiers, there are plenty of indoor air quality systems to choose from! So, how do you figure out which system would best benefit your family’s needs? The Jerry Kelly Heating & Air Conditioning team is here to help you figure that out.

Whole-home Air Filtration Systems

Just like the name implies, a whole-home air filtration system will clean the air throughout your whole Missouri home. This is a major benefit over portable air filtration systems, which can only handle purifying the air in one or two rooms of your home. Buying a whole-home system is a much better choice budget-wise than purchasing multiple portable units to purify the air throughout your whole home.

These systems are incorporated into your existing HVAC system, so they are hidden from view. They’re also typically quiet during operation, so you won’t be distracted by a noisy air purifier like you can be with a portable unit.

If you live in a city with poor air quality, have pets in your home, or smoke cigarettes in or near your home, a whole-home air filtration system will help improve the quality of your home’s indoor air. These systems are also beneficial for people with asthma and allergies.

Another benefit of these air filtration systems is that they decrease the amount of debris that gets into your HVAC system, which can lengthen the life of your heating and cooling units, saving you money and keeping your family comfortable in your Missouri home.

Whole-home Humidifiers

There are many benefits associated with adding moisture back into your home’s indoor air, particularly in the winter months, when the air can get dry and make your family members uncomfortable.

Whole-home humidifiers are convenient—once they’ve been installed, they function along with your furnace on their own, so you don’t have to worry about them. Your humidifier will automatically humidify as your furnace heats your home. This system adds moisture to every room in your house, as opposed to simply humidifying one room as a portable unit would.

If you or one of your family members experience dry, sore, or itchy throats, noses, lips, or skin in the winter, a whole-home humidifier will help you avoid that discomfort. You’ll be able to sleep and breathe more easily, particularly if you have allergies or asthma!

Higher humidity levels will also decrease the number of allergy-irritating particles and bacteria in your home overall. Adding moisture to the air in your home also reduces your chances of getting sinusitis, the flu, and colds, and keeping the inside of your nose lubricated will help you get better faster if you do come down with one of these illnesses.

UV Air Purifier Systems

At Jerry Kelly Heating & Air Conditioning, we install APCO® home air purifiers in homes throughout St. Charles and surrounding areas. These UV air purifier systems use UVC lights and activated carbon to kill germs and remove odors from your home. Our technicians install APCO® home air purifiers in your existing air ducts, which keeps your air conditioner coils clean with UV light and works to kill bugs.

If you’re looking for a convenient way to get rid of pet odors, cooking aromas, cigarette smells, or other unwanted fragrances in your home, in addition to killing bacteria and allergy-causing particles, a UV air purifier system might be the right choice for you.
