Indoor Air Quality
Does your home feel stuffy in the summer and too dry in the winter? Are you or your family members frequently coming down with illnesses such as the cold and flu?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, your home’s indoor air quality could be the culprit. Concentrations of pollutants are two to five times higher indoors than outdoor concentrations, which can lead to health issues, especially for those who suffer from asthma, allergies and other respiratory illnesses.
Whether it’s the installation of a whole house dehumidifier in the summer, a whole house humidifier for the winter, or an air cleaner for year-round comfort, contact B&W today. Our indoor air quality specialists are expertly trained to install all types of indoor air quality equipment.

Indoor Air Quality Systems from B&W
B&W Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Drains offers a full range of indoor air quality solutions for homes across Indianapolis.
One of the best ways to improve the air quality in your home is through the installation of a whole house air cleaner or whole house air purifier. Instead of the portable models that provide service to just one room or area, whole house units connect directly to your home’s HVAC system to offer coverage for your entire house.
B&W offers an AccuClean Whole-Home Air Cleaner by American Standard that can remove up to 99.98% or airborne particulate matter and catch particles as small as .1 micron in size. This system can eliminate contaminants such as mold spores, pollens, dust, pet dander and even viruses and bacteria to prevent them from recirculating through your home’s air supply. The I-Wave works with your existing filter to purify the air.
We all know how hot and humid summers in Central Indiana can be. High indoor humidity levels can disrupt our body’s natural cooling process and make us uncomfortable.
Whole house dehumidifiers use a dehumidistat to keep the humidity level in a comfortable range by removing excess moisture from the air.
Opposite to the summers in Indiana, our winters are extremely dry. When humidity levels fall below 30%, the air is considered dry, which can lead to a number of health issues, including chapped and cracked lips, itchy throat, dry skin and the cold or flu. It can also damage your furniture, wood floors and even peel paint.
You can combat these conditions with the installation of a whole house humidifier. These units also use a humidistat to keep humidity levels in a comfortable range, typically between 30 and 50%. When the humidity drops below a certain threshold, the humidifier will kick on to introduce more moisture to your Indianapolis’ home air supply.
Unlike traditional one-inch furnace filters, media filters are three to five inches thick and do a great job of trapping tiny air particles such as mold spores, dust, pollen, pet dander, etc., and preventing them from entering your home’s air supply. This provides superior air filtration and can improve overall health, especially for those who suffer from asthma, allergies or other respiratory illnesses.
Media filters are located inside a metal cabinet that is placed in the return air duct line of the forced air system. For more information about media filters, contact B&W today.
