Indoor Air Quality In Memphis

Many homeowners mistakenly believe that the air inside their houses is clean and free of pollutants, but there are actually a number of airborne irritants and allergens that can linger inside of your home without the right solutions. If you haven’t given much thought to your indoor air quality, you should schedule a consultation with a Choate’s Air Conditioning and Heating technician to explore ways you can clean up the air inside your home. Along with regular maintenance to your heater and air conditioner, you may need to invest in advanced filtration solutions to keep your air pure and clean for the health and safety of your family.

Indoor Air Quality Services

At Choate's Air Conditioning, Heating and Plumbing, we understand good indoor air quality plays an important role in maintaining your level of comfort indoors and is vital to improving your overall health and well-being. Here are some important factors in indoor air quality.

  • Proper ventilation: Ventilation ensures that your indoor space has enough fresh air circulation through. It also serves to remove stale odors and rid the indoor space of dust. For the air quality to remain good, an indoor space needs continuous ventilation. 
  • Sufficient heating or cooling: The quality of your indoor air experience rests largely on the ability to control the temperature. Whether you're looking for relief from the summer heat or need a cozy indoor retreat to warm yourself up, there's a proper indoor air solution for it. 
  • Reduced pollutants: Airborne pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds, can reduce air quality significantly, even to the point where the air is no longer safe to breathe. This includes pollen, dust, bacteria, mold spores and carbon monoxide. 

  • Comfortable humidity levels: Humidity levels of 60% and higher cause dampness, and with this, comes mold and other damp-related issues. 
  • Allergen control: Good indoor air quality relies on filters and other preventative methods to keep allergens such as pollen and dust mites at bay. 
  • Noise control: Indoor air quality is all about comfort, and if you have a noisy HVAC system or air purifier, it could minimize your experience. 
  • Odor control: If there are foul smells wafting through your environment, it could mean your air quality is compromised and there are pollutants around. By minimizing the pollutants, you maintain better control of indoor odors. 

Air Monitors

It's hard to improve what you don't measure, and that's why we recommend every household that wants to stay on top of its indoor air quality game has an air quality monitor on hand. Indoor air pollution can be highly toxic, and levels of discomfort can range from mild allergic reactions and respiratory discomfort to respiratory diseases and even death. Air monitors can help you detect air pollutants, such as a gas leak or mold issues. 

Whole Room Air Purifiers 

Whole room air purifiers make use of air filters to purify the room. These can remove airborne particles, such as dust and dander. Some are even equipped to purify toxic components such as gas. Our technicians are equipped to provide you with a whole room air purifier solution that will target the airborne pollutants you need to take care of. We ensure the unit has the right clean air delivery rate for that space. 

Room Air Purifiers 

When you don't have many air pollutants in a space but still require some form of purification, a room air purifier should do the trick. These are available as standalone units that can be moved into different locations.

Carbon Air Purifier With UV

UV lights are very effective in the management of airborne pollutants, including microorganisms like bacteria. This is particularly helpful for those hoping to reduce their exposure to airborne diseases. The carbon air purifier with UV takes care of VOCs and odors. The combination of the carbon and UV reduces the levels of ozone as the air circulates, ensuring fresher air for longer. 


A humidifier is important during dry winter months when you need to increase the indoor humidity levels. This alleviates the feeling of dry skin and can help reduce some allergy symptoms, such as dry eyes and dry nose. Humidifiers are also used for those who have respiratory infections and need to loosen congestion. 


A dehumidifier works to remove some of the moisture or vapor from an environment, such as a closet or a basement. These spaces are prone to retaining moisture in high-humidity situations. When that happens, the dampness can cause damage to structures. It can also affect the aesthetics of the space by causing the paint to bubble, crack or peel, plaster to fall off or wood to swell or split. Damp, humid environments are also ideal breeding grounds for mold that damages your structures, furniture, clothing, linen and food and can be dangerous when breathed in. You can opt for small, portable dehumidifiers or dehumidifying systems that target entire areas.
