Indoor Air Quality Solutions in Central Indiana
Regardless of which indoor air quality solution you choose, the end result will be better air which can help the performance of your HVAC system. When your indoor air is filtered better, or you are able to change the humidity levels in your home to stop contaminants from growing and spreading, you can eliminate the amount of particle matter that clogged up your furnace or air conditioner. When you have a cleaner system, it will respond better to thermostat controls and won’t have to work as hard to adjust to the temperature settings. Many of our customers who have invested in indoor air quality solutions notice changes in their energy bills too.
UV Air Purifier Installation
Did you know that indoor air, on average, is 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside? Poor indoor air quality can play a significant role in the health of you and your family. Contaminants and pollutants in the air can exacerbate allergies and asthma symptoms and lead to sinus problems, eye irritation and other severe reactions.
To ensure optimal indoor air quality, consider installing a UV air purifier. UV air purifiers are connected to the return duct of your HVAC system and capture the air through a small chamber where it is exposed to UV-C light. UV light captures and kills harmful bacteria and viruses, rendering them unable to reproduce.

Summers in Greenwood, IN and throughout Central Indiana can be hot and humid. Once the indoor relative humidity level rises above 50%, it can make your living environment feel sticky and downright uncomfortable.
High humidity levels can cause health issues and damage to your home. Elevated humidity levels, for example, can lead to dehydration, skin and throat irritation, virus transmission, increased vulnerability to infections, allergy-like symptoms and more. Excess humidity can also lead to mold that can damage your home and cause health issues.
Installing a whole-house dehumidifier to your HVAC system is an excellent solution to keep humidity levels within the balanced range of 30-50%. These systems work by drawing air through the return duct and pulling moisture out of the air. The moisture condenses into water droplets and is funneled out of your home through a condensate drain.

Whole home humidifiers, meanwhile, perform the exact opposite function as dehumidifiers. During the dry, cold winters in Greenwood, IN, humidifiers add moisture to the air to keep humidity levels above 30%.
Like high humidity levels, low humidity distributed by your furnace can have its own negative effects on your health and home. Health issues can include bloody noses, cracked lips, dry skin, scratchy throats and respiratory issues. Dry air can also cause wood furniture, flooring and instruments to crack and become damaged.
Unlike using a portable humidifier that can only service one room or small area of your home, installing a whole house humidifier to your HVAC system can provide the needed moisture to keep your entire home healthy and safe from issues caused by high humidity levels.

The thermostat acts as the “brain” of your HVAC system. When it isn’t working properly, neither will your heating and cooling system. If you find that it takes a long time for your HVAC system to reach the set temperature on your thermostat or you want better control of your home’s temperature to control energy bills, upgrading your thermostat can be an affordable solution. You may also want to consider installing a new thermostat if you notice any of the following signs:
- Your furnace and air conditioner aren’t providing your home with heating and cooling, respectively
- The furnace is overheating or won’t shut off
- The air conditioner won’t shut off
- The furnace or blower fan is still running when the thermostat is off
- Your thermostat is old
- Dirt and debris buildup
- Wrong thermostat placement
If the thermostat in your Greenwood, IN home is old or malfunctioning, consider upgrading to a new programmable thermostat or smart thermostat. Programmable thermostats allow you to pre-set the unit to different temperatures based on the time and day of the week. For example, when you’re away at work during the winter, you can set the thermostat to automatically lower the temperature to 62 degrees until 5 p.m. and have it go back up to 68 degrees by the time you arrive home.
With a smart thermostat, you can also pre-set the temperature, but they take their convenience to a whole new level. Smart thermostats allow you to change the temperature remotely from your smartphone or device. Many newer models also come with artificial intelligence that can learn your temperature preferences over time and make automatic adjustments. For thermostat repair and replacement service, contact Johnson today.
