Take a Whole-House Approach to Cleaning Indoor Air

Mother Reading Story To Children In Their Bedroom

Think about how you experience comfort in your Central Oregon home.

Is it piecemeal, with comfort levels varying from room to room, or do you prefer a whole-house approach? Do your heating and cooling systems condition the air in a mere portion of your Sisters home, or all of it? Do you rely on space heaters or a central furnace or heat pump?

You likely own a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system that enhances comfort throughout your home. Your indoor air quality (IAQ) equipment should be no different.

At Diversified Heating & Cooling, we know you have a choice in the way you experience comfort. We are confident a whole-house approach will give you the best return on your investment in air filtration products. Our qualified professionals can recommend a system that best suits your budget and achieves your comfort goals. 

Reducing Indoor Pollution

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems. The agency identifies a list of sources that includes tobacco, fuel-burning combustion appliances, building materials, products for household cleaning, hobbies, excess humidity, and outdoor pollution that enters your Sisters home through windows and unsealed cracks or holes. 

Some pollutants are two to five times the amount indoors than outside, according to the EPA. Contaminants can cause many health problems, from eye, nose, and throat irritation to respiratory issues, cancer, and heart disease. 

The first step in keeping your indoor air clean should be an effort to eliminate the pollution source. If you smoke, take it outdoors away from your home. Open windows when working on a hobby project that uses glues or paints. Use an exhaust vent when cooking. Keep pesticides and other chemical products outside your home in a garage or shed. Vacuum and dust your home regularly. Change your HVAC air filter. 

Our certified technicians at Diversified Heating & Cooling can take your home’s indoor air quality to the next level. We repair, replace, install, and maintain several brands of air filtration systems. 

Whole-House Versus Portable Units

An advantage to a whole-house air filtration system is its ability to distribute clean air throughout your Sisters home. It is the most cost-effective method of supplying clean air to every room in your home, especially if you own a large house.

If you live in a compact “tiny house” or studio apartment-style home, a portable air purifier likely will suit your needs. 

If you want clean air in your family room, living room, kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, and basement, a whole-house system is your best option. Otherwise, if you plan to use portable units, you likely will need more than one to achieve clean air throughout your house.

Whole-house filtration systems are quiet and require little maintenance. You can schedule a checkup at the same time as your annual HVAC tune-up. They are more costly than a portable unit but can increase the value of your house. 

Whole-house systems operate inside your HVAC system or in an air duct. Portable units take up space and coexist with your furniture.
