Air Quality

For true comfort throughout your home in spring, summer, winter and fall, contact Doug’s Heating & Air Conditioning for an air quality audit. We will review your furnace and air conditioner to determine the options you have to improve your home’s overall air quality.

Purity, cleanliness and humidity are important to your lungs and to your home. Today’s homes are built much tighter. Airborne contaminants and particles can linger and recirculate throughout your home. We can now control air quality better than ever with the latest technology in air purifiers, air cleaners and humidifiers.

Air Purifiers

An air purifier acts like the sun, using UV rays to destroy certain contaminants associated with asthma, allergies and respiratory infections. Ask us about Sanuvox UV Lights, which have been studied independently and proven effective in destroying bacteria, viruses, mold, odors and other potentially harmful contaminants.

Air Cleaners

Filter airborne particles and contaminants out of your heated or conditioned air with the Honeywell brand of Whole-House Media Air Cleaners and Whole-House HEPA Air Cleaner. Keep your house cleaner by removing pollen, dander and road or farm dust. The top-of-the-line HEPA Air Cleaner provides three stages of filtration, adding up to the cleanest air possible for you and your family.

Humidifiers

Make your home feel warmer in winter without turning up the heat! A Honeywell Whole-House Evaporative Humidification System enhances your home’s comfort in winter while increasing energy efficiency, too. The automatic sensor in this humidifier system conserves water, operates quietly and indicates when you need new replacement pads. There’s no waste, no worry and no hassle, because it’s linked to your heating and air conditioning systems to constantly maintain a healthy level of humidity for your family and your possessions.
