Indoor Air Quality - Minnesota
Your home is where you and your family spend most of their time. Unfortunately, all homes have problems with Indoor Air Quality. This comes in the form of dust, mold, bacteria, fungi and viruses. Another issue that can affect the quality of air in your home is the humidity. Depending on the time of year you may need more humidity in the air (typically in winter) and in other times you may need less humidity in the air (Summer).
At Dust Doctors we specialize in air duct cleaning and vent cleaning throughout your home but that’s not all. We can also help with the quality of the air inside your home. Your HVAC system has the potential to transform the air in your home to help you stay healthy and comfortable all year. We offer a host of solutions for your HVAC system. Our technicians can install products to clean and purify the air along with regulating the humidity of your entire house.
We offer a few solutions that can dramatically decrease the air pollutants in your home. Viruses, bacteria, dust and other particulate matter can not only get blown around in your HVAC system, they can also settle into your carpets, bedding, furniture and window treatments.
Whole-Home air purifier - Filtration
Many HVAC systems come with small 1” filters that should be changed once per month. These filters can catch the larger particles but the smaller particles go right through. An average 1” filter has about 3.4 sq./ft. of surface area to catch particulates co pared to our whole home filtration systems which have around 10 times that at 31.4 sq./ft. This filtration not only helps the health of your family, it also increases the life of your AC coil inside your system with less dust build up.
If you or your family suffer from allergies, respiratory illness, asthma or are sensitive to airborne particulates you may want to have an air purification system installed. It can be installed on your home’s heating and cooling system and puts you in control of your air purity. Simply turn the fan on to your HVAC system to deliver healthier, cleaner air to your entire home
Breathe Clean Air Purification System – UV Technology
Air filtration is a great way to remove particulates from the air but even the best filters don’t catch everything. The Breathe Clean air purification system uses the forced air in your heating and AC system to pass by the ultraviolet (UV) technology to wipe out the bacteria, viruses, mold, dust mites and fungi and keep your house more healthy and clean. This system is great for allergy and asthma sufferers and can be installed on just about any forced air HVAC system. We can install the Breathe Clean system while we clean your ducts and HVAC system.

Whole Home Humidity Control
In Minnesota, we experience the seasons in a more dramatic way than most regions of the country. In the summers it’s more humid and in the winter the freezing temps make it very dry. This can affect people in a number of ways.
High humidity in the summer creates mold. In basements this can build up and become a big problem for the home and for the people living in it. People get sick from mold and often have no idea why they are sick until the mold is removed. With a dehumidification system we can solve the problem of excess moisture in the home and keep those basements dry.
Low humidity in the winter can be terrible for people’s respiratory systems and their skin. Many of our customers are surprised about how nice their skin feels after installing a whole home humidification system. Dry air is also harder to heat and makes your heating system less efficient and have to run more to get the same warm feeling in your home. Static electricity is also a problem in dry homes. With more humidity in the air you won’t be shocking everyone you touch or yourself when doing laundry!
At Dust Doctors we can help install a system to purify your air and control the humidity to make your home cleaner, safer and more comfortable. Give us a call or request a consultation today!
