Benefits of Clean Indoor Air
It’s very important to ensure that your home has clean and healthy indoor air, especially when living in an older home or a home that has recently seen renovations. We experience long winters here in southeastern Michigan and St. Clair County, because of this we spend much of our time inside our homes during the winter months.
The air you’re breathing while indoors is passed through a filter, but the filter alone cannot stop all of the dust particles, harmful germs, and odors. That’s why we work to install whole-home air purification systems in our customers homes, these ensure that your family is breathing safe, clean air while indoors!
Benefits of Proper Humidity in Your Home
There’s more to a comfortable home than just adjusting the thermostat. Often times the humidity level in your home effects how comfortable it is just as much as the temperature. Humidity level refers to the moisture content of the air within your home. The higher the moisture levels of your home, the more you feel the effects of the temperature, whether it’s warm or cold.
Having these humidity levels under control will not only benefit your health and comfort, but it will benefit your house as well! Residents of St. Clair County experience many different humidity levels throughout the year, that’s why it’s very important to be able to control it inside your house.

Whole Home Air Purification
At Superior Heating & Cooling, we work hard to make sure every system within your home is running efficiently and providing a healthy environment for your family.
One of the ways we can do this is by installing a whole home air purification system. This system is top of the line and will filter out not only harmful dust particles and debris, but also unhealthy germs that are being circulated throughout your heating and cooling system. Plus, it will help get rid of disgusting odors. Your A/C and furnace system will move air at the proper temperature throughout your home, but our whole home air purification systems will ensure the air passing through your vents is healthy and clean!
Summer months in St. Clair County see very high temperatures and high humidity levels. This humidity can become very uncomfortable very quickly. Reducing humidity levels with a dehumidifier will make the air in your home seem cooler without your A/C system having to work extra hard. This increases your cooling systems lifespan and reduces your utility cost.
High indoor humidity can also pose a health risk. Having high humidity levels can increase the likelihood of germs growing in your HVAC system and mold growing in areas of your home. Mold can quickly become a problem in basements and cause awful smells as well. Running a dehumidifier will allow you to prevent this from becoming an issue.
Warm, humid summer air feels hotter than it actually is because of the moisture it contains. That same principle applies to your home in the winter. By keeping the relative humidity inside your home at an ideal level, you can turn your thermostat down a few degrees and still feel comfortable. Dialing down your thermostat just 3 degrees can reduce your heating bill by as much as 5%.
Controlling your home’s humidity during the winter will require having a humidifier, this means that it will replace moisture in the air and prevent your home’s air from becoming too dry and uncomfortable. This is important in the winter because traditional furnace systems reduce the moisture content in the air throughout your home.
In St. Clair County we experience very cold winters, therefore our furnaces and heating systems must work very hard to keep our houses warm. As a result, most homes can easily become very dry in the colder months. Running our top-rated humidifier systems will allow you to control this and get your humidity levels back up to where they should be.
