Indoor Air Quality from ARS/Rescue Rooter Indiana
Indoor Air Quality in Plainfield, IN
Did you know the air inside your home can be four to five times more polluted than the air outside? Indoor air pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, dust, dirt, mold spores and allergens, are all contaminants that can be found in your home’s air.
These contaminants can aggravate respiratory diseases and infections, especially in children and older individuals. While this can be disturbing to think about, ARS/Rescue Rooter Indiana — your preferred air cleaner company — offers a variety of products and services you can add to your home to help clean your air.

Every day, things such as mold, dust, viruses, bacteria and dust mites can circulate through your air after passing through your HVAC system. A whole-home air purifier can remove a high percentage of these toxins from your air, and it can be installed in the existing tracks of your existing HVAC system with no modifications to your ductwork, allowing you to save money while making a great upgrade to your home.
When you invest in a whole-home air cleaner, you can expect the following benefits for years to come:
· Reduced Dust and Allergens – The most immediate benefit that you’ll notice is a reduction in allergy symptoms and respiratory irritation since the whole-home air cleaner efficiently filters dust, mold, and other common allergens out of your recirculated air.
· Improved HVAC Efficiency – Without irritating particles moving through your air ducts, there is less buildup in your HVAC system, so you can expect a more efficient performance from your air conditioner and furnace.
· Longer Life of HVAC System – You might get many more years of life out of your existing HVAC system because the higher-efficiency performance of the system with a whole-home air filter will reduce malfunctions that could require a whole system replacement.
Air Duct Cleaning
Air ducts play an important role in any HVAC system; without them, warm and cool air cannot flow freely and efficiently throughout your home. This is why regular duct cleanings are necessary for keeping your system in top shape.
Over time, dirt and debris can build up in your ducts and become a holding ground for dust mites, pollens and allergens. These microscopic pollutants can quickly multiply, creating millions of virus and bacteria particles inside your ductwork that are constantly flowing through your air simply because your ducts aren’t clean. Your ducts should be cleaned every 2-3 years to ensure clean indoor air.
Home Air Filtration
There are many types of filters available that can be added to your heating and cooling system to removing indoor airborne pollutants. These include disposable filters, media filters, HEPA filters and more. Based on the needs of your family, our professional service technicians can recommend the most effective filter for your system and home.
Many homes require the addition of moisture to maintain a comfortable environment. Low humidity levels can result in dry skin and hair, cracked hardwood floors and furniture and damage to personal belongings. Whole-home humidifiers can be added to your home’s heating and cooling system to add the right amount of moisture to your air for ideal comfort.
Too much humidity in your air can cause mold and mildew growth. These mold spores can get in your home’s air and potentially cause illness in your family. A whole-home dehumidifier can be added to your heating and cooling system to help prevent mold and mildew growth.
Germicidal UV Light Installation
Ultraviolet light is one of the leading methods of indoor air purification today—ultraviolet light air cleaners are used in hospitals and other sterile facilities to eliminate a variety of pathogens and other health concerns. An ultraviolet light air cleaner can remove viruses and bacteria from the air you breathe, creating a healthier, cleaner, and safer home. At ARS® / Rescue Rooter® Indianapolis, our HVAC technicians can integrate an ultraviolet light air cleaner into your existing HVAC system during a single service visit, making cleaner air an easy and achievable solution.
UV germicidal lamps can destroy virtually any harmful microorganism that passes through your heating and cooling system, such as germs, viruses and bacteria, by breaking up their DNA structure. As a result, the microorganisms are destroyed, and your indoor air quality (IAQ) can be improved.
Ultraviolet light air cleaners can be installed right in your existing ductwork—no changes or extensions are needed. Once in place, your air cleaner will:
· Remove germs such as viruses and bacteria from your indoor air every
· Time your HVAC system operates.
· Run silently and concurrently with your furnace and air conditioner.
· Improve airflow and enhance the overall efficiency of your HVAC system
· For long-term performance output and energy savings.
What Are the Signs You Have Poor Indoor Air Quality?
At ARS/Rescue Rooter, we frequently receive calls from customers who want to determine if their homes have good indoor air quality.
This is a common question. After all, people are accustomed to getting reports from the weather service on days when pollution is particularly bad. So, shouldn’t the air be better inside, then? The problem is that the air inside your dwelling has to come from outside. Plus, there are also contaminants inside of which to be aware.
Especially for individuals with health conditions such as asthma or other respiratory issues, it’s vital to aim for the highest possible indoor air quality.
Before you get in touch with us for service, you might want to take a look at these common signs that your home may have poor indoor air quality.
If you or anyone in your family has been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, also known as COPD, it’s a potential sign that your home is suffering from bad indoor air quality.
If your home has bad indoor air quality, it can strike people who have asthma the hardest. So, if anyone under your roof has been noticing more incidents of asthma attacks or if symptoms have grown worse, there’s a possibility that the added difficulty in breathing, extra wheezing or feelings of tightness in the chest could be attributed to bad IAQ.
Heart disease, also referred to as cardiovascular disease, is a medical condition that can be exacerbated by air pollution inside the home. Contaminants in the air — including carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, soot, sulfur dioxide, dust and ozone — are implicated in heart disease risk.
These pollutants can make a person’s blood clot more readily and interfere with how the blood vessels function. Such contaminants can also cause problems with the electrical signals in the heart.
Sometimes customers contact ARS/Rescue Rooter when they are suffering from symptoms that mimic those of the common cold. Say you or your family are experiencing coughing or sneezing, fatigue, a runny nose, itching eyes or even dizziness. If you have a cold, you are likely to feel better after a week or two. However, if your symptoms persist for longer, there’s potential that the root cause is bad indoor air quality.
Unfortunately, a diagnosis of lung cancer may be the first indication to a homeowner that there is poor indoor air quality. After lengthy exposure to air of poor quality, lung cancer risk increases. Secondhand smoke is a major factor, as are combustible pollutants.
A significant source of pollution that can lead to lunch cancer is radon, a radioactive gas that seeps out of the ground. Radon can get into your home through cracks in the floors or walls that are touching contaminated soil.
What Is the Climate of Indianapolis?
