Wondering what HVAC accessories can improve the air in your home? The air in your home can significantly affect your health, especially for those who suffer from seasonal allergies or chronic illnesses like asthma. While many of us know about the dangers of bad outdoor air quality, we often ignore indoor pollution. While standard filters in most central HVAC systems can help remove dust from the air, these filters can not remove those tiny particles that are harmful to your health.
Here are our favorite HVAC accessories to improve your home’s indoor air quality.

Purification systems remove dust, bacteria, mold, and viruses from the air that your HVAC system circulates throughout your home.

UV lights are put in your HVAC system by the coil. They are used to kill bacteria and mold before it is able to enter your living space as the air gets blown through the vents. UV lights are great for keeping the indoor coil mold-free. Mold can grow when the coil stays wet for several months of the year.
Benefits of HVAC UV lights:
- Control bacteria and mold
- Reduce odors and smells
- Reduce flu viruses and colds; germs won’t be re-circulated by the HVAC system
- Keeps a cleaner coil, reduces electricity costs, and improves cooling efficiency
- Prevents algae growth and reduces clogging in condensate drain lines
You may not know how much a whole-house humidifier adds to your home’s overall comfort until you have one installed and feel the difference. Humidifiers emit the right amount of moisture to keep your space comfortable, and they can also help keep airborne particles and harmful contaminants from circulating and multiplying. You can expect the following benefits from having a humidifier as part of your HVAC system:
- Decreased air dryness that can worsen allergy and asthma symptoms and lead to brittle hair and skin irritation
- Less damage to your furniture, paintings, and wood floors from dry air
- Less static electricity in the carpets
- Better energy efficiency
