Why Indoor Air Quality Matters, Especially During Summer

Summer is a season that often prompts you to retreat indoors from sweltering outdoor temperatures. The vast majority of homeowners keep their windows and doors closed to get the maximum amount of efficiency from their HVAC system. This practice undoubtedly helps your pocket, but it can negatively affect your respiratory system.


Boosting your energy efficiency by keeping your home sealed up all summer traps air pollutants indoors. If you have allergies, asthma, or a cold, heavily relying on just your air conditioning all summer can worsen these issues. At Southwest Heating and Cooling, we understand that comfort is important to you during this season. You can breathe clean this summer too with our systems for air purification in Littleton, CO.

How an Air Purification System Can Help

Even if you keep your home spotless, there are air pollutants circulating through your HVAC system. The standard air filter that comes with your HVAC system can’t eliminate the microscopic organisms that affect your air quality like an air purifier. Summer heightens your sensitivity to poor air quality because you’re spending so much time indoors. Contaminants like pollen, ragweed, dust mites, pet dander, and even mold could be cycling through your system all summer without a way to exit your home.

It’s difficult for our immune systems to keep up with the vast amount of germs and particles trapped in our homes, especially when we’re increasing our energy efficiency for the summer. An air purifier can eliminate microorganisms from your home before they become a problem for you or your family’s health.

Types of Air Purifiers

UV Air Purifiers: UV air purifiers work to cleanse your home by emitting an ultraviolet light throughout your HVAC which kills microorganisms on contact. UV purifiers are the most effective systems for removing germs like bacteria and viruses from the air.

Electronic Air Purifiers: These types of systems are also called electrostatic precipitators. These purifiers pull air in from the room, charge all the contaminant particles with ions, and leave the dirty particles on a collecting plate within the system. This plate is removable and is taken out and wiped clean by the homeowner.

Both types of purifiers can work alongside your existing HVAC system and ductwork setup. One of our trained service technicians can work with you to assess your home and determine which system is best for you.
