Indoor Air Quality
- Sheet Metal Fabrication
Here’s an unfortunate fact about the indoor air quality in homes today: it is often 3 to 4 times worse than the air outdoors. This is a side-effect of the heavy insulation that homes have on them to help keep out heat during the summer and trap it during the winter. With so little fresh air entering the house, the indoor air becomes filled with contaminants that continue to circulate and accumulate through the HVAC system.
Of course, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice summer and winter comfort in your house in order to improve air quality. There are ways to clean and freshen the air, and you’ll find many techniques available when you call Big Horn Heating & Cooling. We service homes with installations that help them enjoy better indoor air quality. Contact our specialists today to learn more about your options for healthier and more comfortable air for your household.

Call on Professionals for Indoor Air Quality Services
You can purchase appliances in some stores, such as portable room humidifiers and electronic air purifiers. However, these are temporary solutions at best and will only affect a small area. To provide your entire home with high indoor air quality, you must contact specialists.
Professionals will first find out what contaminants or other issues are affecting your air. Is the problem a humidity imbalance? Is there excess dust, pollen, or dander? Are people suffering from symptoms that may be connected to mold spores or bacteria developing in the ductwork? The experts will locate the specific problems that must be addressed, and then find the right way to counteract them. They will install the filters, purifiers, humidifiers, or other products that will do the job necessary—for your entire home.
Other Indoor Air Quality Services
Your HVAC system may need other work aside from installing purifiers and filters to ensure you have the best air possible and an efficient HVAC system. Sometimes breaks in ductwork and heat leaks can lead to problems for your heating and cooling. When ducts need work, only call on experts to handle the job of increasing insulation and sealing up air leaks.

Air Filtration Systems
The most common type of indoor air quality installation is the air filter, which traps debris in a mess of fibers as the air moves through it. There are many types and efficiencies of mechanical air filters, and it’s crucial that you have an experienced professional match your HVAC system with a filter that won’t interfere with its proper operation.
Often paired with mechanical air filters, air purifiers use electronic means such as ionization to pull contamination down from the air. An air purifier is most effective at targeting the smaller particles that a mechanical filtration system can miss, such as smoke, chemicals, odor molecules, and carbon monoxide.
If the ducts of an HVAC system do not have proper ventilation, it will cause them to gain heat during warm weather and lose it during cold weather. The effect will be a rise in energy costs and a drop in comfort. Call us if you need to have new insulation for your ducts or replacement for older, ineffective insulation.
Air leaks crop up in ducts often, and they can account for losing up to 30% of the conditioned air moving through them. That is a lot of money you pay for comfort you don’t receive. It takes experts with special equipment, such as mastic sealant and metallic tapes, to correctly seal up ductwork to restore its integrity.
Energy Recovery Ventilators
There is a way that you can allow fresh air into your house without it having a negative impact on your heating or cooling system. It’s an energy recovery ventilator (ERV), and it’s a remarkable device that uses outgoing indoor air to pre–heat or pre–cool fresh outdoor air before it reaches the indoors. Call us for more details or to schedule service.
Heat Recovery Ventilators
A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) works very similar to an ERV: it draws outdoor air into the HVAC system and heats it or cools it with a cross–current of the stale indoor air before sending it indoors. There are a few important differences, and you can rely on our experts to pick the right unit for you.
Dry air can often be an issue and the best way to combat it is with a whole–house humidifier. (Portable units will only get the job done in one room, and not very well at that.) Let our technicians find the right humidifier for your house so that you’ll have air that is balanced and which doesn’t accidentally create excess humidity.
UV Air Purifier
If the trouble with your home’s air quality comes from biological contaminants (viruses, bacteria, germs, mold spores, etc.) then the best solution is to have experts place UV germicidal lights into the HVAC system. These UV air purifiers target and destroy bacteria and other biological pests using the power of ultraviolet radiation. It cleans your air without placing any chemicals into it.
