How to Get Clean Air in Your Home

As the seasons change and kids go back to school, outdoor activities start to become indoor activities. This prompts central Indiana homeowners to be more aware of their indoor air.

• According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air is two to five times more polluted than outdoor air.
• Indianapolis is ranked 9th worst among cities in the U.S. for year-round particle pollution.

When polluted indoor air and high particulates in Indianapolis are coupled with ragweed allergies increasing in the fall, air quality takes a significant nose-dive and can exacerbate feelings of fatigue and sickness.

To combat these indoor air quality issues, many Homesense clients have turned to air purification products that combine increased filtration with near hospital-grade air cleaning technology. This helps make their home a refuge from pollutants.

“The primary product our clients turn to is the Carrier® Performance Air Purifier,” says Brian Schutt, owner of Homesense Heating and Cooling. “It can combat things like the cold virus and helps remove 75 percent of airborne organisms. It is also cost-effective and that makes it the go-to for anyone concerned about the health of their home.”

It is easy to determine if the Carrier® Performance Air Purifier is the right fit for your home. Homesense offers a complimentary air quality assessment and estimate. They can usually have a new system installed within three days of that appointment.

“For me this product is personal,” Schutt says. “I have allergies and two children under the age of five. I had it installed as soon as we moved into our home in 2013. During months where I can hardly stop sneezing outside, my home is like an oasis.”
