Whole-Home Humidifiers

One of the most common issues with indoor air quality during the cold Indiana winters is dry air. Adding water vapor into your home’s air through a whole-house humidifier will help improve indoor air quality as well as prevent dry and itchy skin, sore throats, static electricity, and protects wood surfaces. HVAC equipment is designed to treat all of the air within your home so adding a whole-home humidifier to your system restores ideal relative humidity in every room of your home. You may also notice an improvement of your HVAC system efficiency and increase its lifespan.

Using a humidifier can help stop the spread of flu, colds, and other viruses in your home. While viruses can float in dry air, water vapor helps trap contaminants and remove them from your home. Our team of highly trained experts can evaluate your space and existing equipment to help determine the best humidifier solution for your home’s unique needs. All Carrier models come with a 10-year limited warranty.

Air Purifiers

Imagine your family breathing easy in your home despite asthma, sensitive seasonal allergies, or any other respiratory issues. It doesn’t have to be just a fantasy — a whole-house air purifier will filter out the bacteria, viruses, dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander, and other indoor air pollutants to keep your family healthy at home.

Both the Carrier Performance and Infinity models come with 10-year limited warranties.

The budget-conscious Performance model has a slim profile to fit into tight installation spaces and boasts a respectable MERV rating of 13 — meaning independent lab tests show it will remove 96% of viruses from your indoor air within 24 hours of activation. An air purifier is like putting layers of additional air filters to make sure that the air that flows into your HVAC system is fresh and clean.

The Infinity air purifier provides superior air quality with a MERV rating of 15 — the highest of any Carrier model — to trap and kill 99% of airborne viruses and bacteria within 24 hours of installation, helping keep your family healthy as soon as it’s turned on.

What is HVAC Indoor Air Quality?

HVAC indoor air quality refers to all of the air within your home that is controlled by the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. There are a number of factors including cleanliness, freshness, and healthy indoor air quality.

Your HVAC system regulates temperature, humidity levels, and air circulation within your home. Effective air filtration removes airborne particles like dust, pollen, and pet dander, while ventilation ensures a constant supply of fresh outdoor air and the removal of stale air.

Adding accessories like air purifiers, UV lights, and other technologies helps reduce contaminants such as dust, bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and odors. For family members susceptible to allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues, improving indoor air quality can be highly beneficial.
