You might tell yourself it’s just allergy season when you’re coughing, sneezing, itching and wheezing, but what if it’s actually the quality of the air inside your home that’s to blame? According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside can be dirtier than the air outside, even in big, industrialized cities. Between dust, allergens, particulates and household chemicals, there are a series of contaminants that can affect your health and comfort. The good news is, South Shore Heating & Cooling can help!

We can test your air quality and, if there’s a problem, offer these proven indoor air quality systems to help you fight back against unclean air:

  • Air Purification Systems – We offer air purification systems from Lennox, Aprilaire and Honeywell that work in concert with your heating and/or cooling system to rid your home of nearly all airborne pollutants.
  • UV Germicidal Lights – These systems destroy mold, mildew, bacteria and other contaminants, as well as kill germs, mold and fungi that may reside in your heating and cooling equipment and ductwork.
  • Heat Recovery Ventilators – Fresh air is important, but introducing it to your home poses a challenge for your heating system. Heat recovery ventilators are the solution – these systems transfer heat from your heating equipment to the outdoor air as it enters the home, so your equipment doesn’t have to work overtime to make up for the added cool air.
  • Whole-Home Humidifiers – These systems add moisture to the air as it’s dispersed by your heating system, balancing your air to improve your health and comfort.

Don’t just chalk it up to allergy season – fight back against contaminants and feel better with our indoor air quality solutions. Call or contact South Shore Heating & Cooling today!
