Indoor Air Quality and HVAC Systems from Mitsubishi

May is Asthma Awareness Month, and allergy season is in full bloom. So what better time to talk about improving the air quality in your home? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution is one of the leading causes of respiratory illness. But far too often homeowners either don’t know about the risks it poses or don’t know how to address them.

HVAC and indoor air quality go hand in hand. The air in our homes is often two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. But when we’re using our AC or heating systems, open windows force the devices to work overtime to keep us comfortable. This puts more wear on the HVAC systems, raises energy bills, and contributes to pollution.

Thankfully, some modern heating and air conditioning systems include built-in solutions to these problems. In fact, Mitsubishi’s ductless heating and cooling systems are one of the best ways to ward off poor indoor air quality. Their multi-faceted filtration allows you to enjoy fresh air inside. So there’s no need to complicate matters with supplemental air cleaners or ventilation systems.

Ductless mini-split systems typically feature multiple indoor units throughout your home. This creates different “climate zones” that you can manage independently of one another. Each indoor unit also comes equipped with a sophisticated air filter to capture pollutants that contribute to poor indoor air quality.

This patented Dual Barrier Coating traps dust, dirt, oil, and more, preventing them from circulating in your air. Normally, these contaminants gather on internal components such as the heat exchanges, air duct, and blower wheel. From there, some particles can be blown back into the air while others stick around, limiting efficiency and increasing the need for maintenance.

But the Dual Barrier Coating prevents these kinds of problems by keeping the contaminants contained. The results: cleaner air, reduced maintenance needs, improved efficiency, lower energy costs, and an extended lifespan for the system. Best of all, the filters are washable and should last 10 years before they need to be replaced.

It’s easy to overlook the connection between your indoor air quality and HVAC systems. But HVAC and indoor air quality go hand in hand. Upgrading to a Mitsubishi ductless system can help you save as much as 30% on your energy bills while dramatically improving your indoor air quality.

When we formed our company more than 50 years ago, we focused on delivering heating oil around Falmouth and Sandwich, MA.But it wasn’t long before we started providing plumbing services and HVAC installation throughout Cape Cod.
