Indoor Air Quality Services in Indianapolis, IN
Today’s homeowners focus on clean water, clean air, and energy-saving measures that also save money. Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, where the concentrations of airborne pollutants are 2-5 times higher than outdoors. And indoor pollutants have increased lately because of synthetics, pesticides, household cleaners, even personal care products, and sprays.
If you have infants, toddlers, elderly, chronically ill, or family members with allergies, asthma, or respiratory problems, your need for good IAQ (indoor air quality) is greater than most.
Northern Comfort Systems serves Indianapolis- and Terre Haute-area homes and businesses plus all of Madison County. We offer 24/7 emergency HVAC service, but you can save on the higher expense of emergency repairs with twice-a-year maintenance. Call (317) 926-4328 or (317) 926-4328 or contact us with questions about indoor air quality.
Poor IAQ & Your Health
Most indoor pollutants originate indoors, but some are from outside the home (neighbor’s chimney smoke, construction dust, etc.). Sources of airborne pollutants include:
- Cigarette/tobacco smoke
- Carbon monoxide
- Pet dander
- VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
Why is good IAQ so important? The obvious reason is health. We can’t avoid some indoor air pollutants, but we can minimize our health risks by reducing or eliminating them.
Symptoms of Poor Indoor Air Quality
- Eyes/nose/throat irritations
- Frequent respiratory illnesses
- Shortness of breath
- Sinus congestion
Bad indoor air quality can lead to cancer, heart disease, and respiratory distress. Researchers are also investigating connections between poor IAQ and student performance and worker productivity.
We offer affordable prices and superior customer care to our friends and neighbors (like you.) Northern Comfort Systems is Indiana’s go-to for improved IAQ. Call (317) 926-4328 or (317) 926-4328 or contact us to learn more.

Ductless HVAC: Cleaner Air, Enhanced Comfort
Ductwork energy loss accounts for more than 30% of your heating and cooling costs. Ductless HVAC systems are cleaner and provide a low-cost alternative to traditional HVAC systems. They have an indoor air system of air delivery units, usually mounted in “zones” or rooms of your home, and an outdoor compressor.
- Control – You can heat or cool one room or every room.
- Easier installation – No need to configure ductwork; installation is easy.
- Energy efficiency – Fewer leaks and less energy loss will save money and reduce your carbon footprint.
- Improved IAQ – You will eliminate the airborne contaminants that get trapped in ductwork.
- Lower maintenance – Ductless systems require less maintenance for you to breathe easier.
- Quieter – Ductless systems are quieter than traditional HVAC units.
