Indoor Air Quality

Breathe Easier With Indoor Air Quality Systems From Bob’s

Believe it or not, your home’s indoor air quality is one of the top five environmental risks to public health according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Fortunately, Bob’s Plumbing & Heating of Central Wisconsin has the tools you need to breathe clean air. Find the best ways to keep your family safe and healthy below. Call us today with questions or to set up an appointment.

The Importance of Indoor Air Quality

Poor air quality has been linked to a variety of health issues, including:

  • Dry eyes and nasal passages
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Asthma
  • Allergies

This pollution can stem from many household activities and items, including cleaning products, steam from cooking, and even carpet fibers. Opening a window when the weather is nice can help refresh and purify your home. But in Wisconsin, that’s not always an option.

Thankfully, Bob’s has just what you need to reduce indoor pollution year-round—see below.

Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Whole-Home Air Purifiers

An air purifier is designed to capture and kill airborne contaminants down to one micron in size. Think of them like your furnace filter—only 40 times more effective. It’s installed as part of your heating and cooling system and removes pollutants as they cycle through your ducts.

Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs)

An ERV operates as both an exhaust fan and a fresh air supply. It sucks out stale indoor air and replaces it with fresh air from outside, balancing the extremes in outdoor temps and humidity to provide perfect conditioned air inside. The result is ideal humidity and ventilation no matter the time of year.

UV Lights

Ultraviolet lights kill bacteria and mold growing on your indoor coils. They work silently and in the background but prevent harmful microorganisms from circulating through your house.


Humidifiers can help you get rid of dry air and the itchy, uncomfortable problems it causes. They add moisture into your home to keep humidity levels in check—our ideal range is between 30 and 60 percent.


These systems work the opposite way of humidifiers—they remove excess moisture from your air. They get rid of that muggy feeling as well as the bacteria that thrives in humid conditions.
