3 Accessories for Improving Your Indoor Air Quality

air purifier

If the air quality in your Lubbock, Texas, home is low, you and your family could experience bad smells, inconvenient breakdowns of your HVAC system, and health problems. Contaminants like pollen, bacteria, dirt, dust, and fungi can cause headaches, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, rashes, or eye irritation. Fortunately, you can increase your indoor air quality with convenient accessories like air purifiers, ventilators, and UV air cleaners.

Air Purifiers

An air purifier uses an air filter similar to the one in your HVAC system. It can catch many of the contaminants that your air conditioner’s filter misses. Some models can even remove viruses and bacteria from your home’s air. You can have a whole-home unit connected to your HVAC system or use a less costly portable unit to clean the air in one or two rooms at a time. However, portable air purifiers are usually noisier than whole-home models.


Many new homes have a lot of insulation to make them more efficient. This makes getting rid of stale air difficult. An ERV or energy recovery ventilator can remove stale and humid air from showering or cooking, along with many other pollutants. It has a heat exchanger that works like a heat pump to conserve energy, and it cools and dehumidifies fresh air before bringing it into your home.

UV Air Cleaners

Instead of filtering or removing your indoor air, UV air cleaners use ultraviolet light to kill fungi, bacteria, viruses, and dust mites. They use UVC light, which is typically filtered out by the atmosphere. It has a shorter wavelength than UVA and UVB light which causes sunburns, and it damages the genetic structure of many small organisms. A UV air cleaner can help you prevent biological growth in your HVAC system that could impact your indoor air quality.

I am so thankful for BTAC and the guys they sent out to repair a major hot and cold water leak under our slab. They knew what they were doing, and were very professional and polite, and I might add compassionate. They are an asset to the company!

To the credit of BTAC and it's management, I had a frustrating experience with them on a call out for a problem with a blower motor. I made my opinion known and contacted them through email to express it. They responded, sent out new technicians and made it right. That doesn't happen very often these days, and it's good to see a company show it cares about that. If you call these folks to come out, and your experience is what you expected, let them know, they'll work with you. 👍

I'm new to the Lubbock area and Bruce Thornton Air Conditioning was the first company we called. They had someone at our house to help in an hour and the service man had our AC fixed in 30 minutes. Their customer service was great from the receptionist who answered the phone to the hvac professional who fixed our AC!
