INDOOR AIR QUALITY SERVICES IN MINNEAPOLIS, MN
You probably think that the air that circulates around your house is fresher and less populated with pollutants than the outdoor air. But studies by the U.S. EPA and other organizations have shown that this often isn’t true. In fact, the air inside a house can be 3 to 4 times worse than that outside. You may not realize it, but your household air could be filled with unhealthy chemicals, dust mites, pollen, dander, and volatile organic chemicals such as formaldehyde.
You don’t need to be scared, however, since it only takes a call to Freedom Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to solve these problems.

Options for Air Quality Systems
There are a number of different ways to cleanse the air that circulates through a house. Below are a few that we offer for installation:
- Air filtration systems:
- Using mechanical air filters is the simplest way to stop unwanted particles from entering the air of your living space. They are also sometimes the most effective. Our IAQ experts will find the right strength air filters for your needs.
- Electronic air purifiers:
- Since many small particles will slip through the mesh of filters, you might need to pair the filtration system with an air purifierthat uses ionization to scrub the air of smoke, chemicals, and odor molecules.
- UV air purifiers:
- UV air purifier devices are designed to remove organic pollutants, such as germs, microbes, bacteria, and mold spores. Their UV lights kill unwanted particles without harming the air with chemicals.
Balancing Indoor Humidity
When the air in a home is too humid or too dry, it will create problems. High humidity will make it harder for people to keep cool in summer weather. It also leads to water damage and the growth of mildew and unhealthy molds. On the other side, extremely dry air can cause paint and wood to peel and crack, worsen the effects of cold weather, and encourage the spread of illnesses.
Whole–house humidifiers and dehumidifiers are the best methods to balance your indoor humidity. Our technicians will find the right installations for you and integrate them into the HVAC system. They’ll also take care of maintenance and any repairs you may require.
