Indoor Air Quality Fairfax, VA
Did you know that your indoor air quality is usually worse than outdoor air quality? Chemicals from cleaners and personal care products, damp carpets and some types of pressed wood leach pollutants into the air inside your home. Inadequate ventilation and dirty ducts can also compound the problem!
By installing an indoor air cleaner, you’re saving your family from a variety of dangers—increased asthma symptoms, lung infections, and reduced overall health!

Indoor Air Quality Products
You spend most of your time indoors and these conditions can be uncomfortable and unhealthy, especially for those with asthma or allergies. At HVAC & Plumbing Unlimited, we feature various products, including:
What is a UV Air Treatment?
A UV air treatment uses UV light to purify your air. The whole home system is designed to destroy viruses, germs, bacteria, mold, chemicals, odors, allergens & VOCs, and mounts inside your ducts. The UV light shines inside at a wavelength that eliminates bio-contaminants.
Does a UV Air Treatment work?
Yes, it works. In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used ultraviolet radiation (UV-C) to nearly eliminate drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms, reducing the number of bacteria by more than 97 percent.
Indoor Air Quality in Your Home
Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranked indoor pollution among the top five environmental dangers? You may not realize it, but the air inside your home is continually recycled through your vents and ductwork. Many people keep their windows tightly sealed while they run their air conditioners or heating units. This can make air inside the house four to five times more polluted than the air outside, as well as increase humidity, stuffiness, staleness and dryness.
Mold, radon, carbon monoxide, household chemicals, and combustion pollutants are all found all over your house, but you can take steps to reclaim your home from bad air. Sources of pollutants include:
- Tobacco products
- Building materials
- Wet or damp carpet
- Cabintetry and furniture made from certain pressed wood products
- Cleaning products
- Beauty products
- Outdoor pollutants finding their way inside your home
Tips to Control Pollutants in Your Home
- Test for radon and fix if there is a problem.
- Reduce asthma triggers such as mold and dust mites.
- Do not let people smoke indoors.
- Keep all areas clean and dry. Clean up any mold and get rid of excess water or moisture.
- Always ventilate when using products that can release pollutants into the air; if products must be stored following use, make sure to close tightly.
- Inspect fuel-burning appliances regularly for leaks, and make repairs when necessary.
- Consider installing a carbon monoxide alarm.
- Change the filters in your HVAC system often
- Install an air cleaner or whole-house filtration system
