Indoor Air Quality Services

Are your allergies acting up? Have you been having problems with the humidity levels in your home? Call Peterson Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Drains for the right indoor air quality service for your home in Grand Junction, CO, or surrounding areas.

With the dust, smoke, and allergens that can linger in the air in Grand Junction, poor air quality can make your family uncomfortable and your home difficult to live in. Sufficient indoor air quality is an area that our region has, unfortunately, fallen behind in. We hear from homeowners all the time that they struggle with allergy issues caused by dust and insufficient air quality.

You should not suffer from poor air quality in your own home.

Yet, according to medical professionals, often breathing in the air in your home can be worse for your health than breathing in the air that’s outside. Allergens from pets, chemical residue, molds, and more can all attack your lungs daily and cause serious harm to your health.

Here are some questions to ask yourself to see if you have indoor air quality problems:

  • Do you suffer from regular migraines?
  • Do you (or the kids) suffer from a perpetual runny nose?
  • Do you find everything in your home constantly covered in dust?
  • Does your heating or cooling system smell funny?
  • Is there an odd smell in your home when the evaporative cooler is on?

If you said, “Yes!” to any of these questions, you have indoor air quality problems affecting your health.

Peterson’s technicians have special training to diagnose and fix indoor air quality issues. Most fixes are more simple than one might think. And no, it’s not always the cat!

Improving Indoor Air Quality


As many Peterson clients can attest, clean air in your home will improve your life dramatically. Many homeowners in Western Colorado have found that breathing clean air not only improves their health but their level of physical fitness as well. Imagine seeing your home as a refuge, instead of an uncomfortable place to live. First things first – you need to start by identifying where the problem areas are to successfully achieve total indoor comfort.

How Peterson Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Drains Can Help

The licensed and skilled technicians at Peterson Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Drains are here to help you enjoy the peace of mind you deserve. We test for various indoor air quality problems and often find simple solutions to common issues that can improve your air quality immediately.


Central Air Conditioning Systems: Evap Coolers are great for efficiency, but most are horrible for air quality. A central air conditioning system, by its nature, cleans all air that comes through it. No more tasting dust whenever the wind blows!

Duct Cleaning Over time, the heating and cooling ducts build up with dust and molds.  A thorough duct cleaning can dramatically change the indoor air quality of your home or business.

HEPA Filters (High Efficiency Particulate Filters): HEPA filters are a great choice for homeowners. They are a high-density filter that will remove 99% of particulates from your indoor air. This includes dander, migraine-triggering-smells, and many forms of bacteria.

Germicidal UV Lamps: For homes with a central air system, a UV lamp is a great option. Hospitals and labs use them to kill any nasty bug that might try to get in. You will be amazed by how affordable one can be for your home!

System Upgrades: In some cases, the indoor air quality culprit is outdated and dirty equipment.

Heating FAQS

Because of differences in size (square footage), layout (single or multilevel), exposure, leakage, and other issues that affect HVAC sizing and cost, it is nearly impossible to put an exact price on a new HVAC system. Fortunately, you can get a free, no obligation quote from Peterson’s for your specific setup.

We recommend that your heating or cooling system is cleaned and serviced twice each year to ensure perfect operation. Regular cleaning and maintenance also help to keep the air expelled by your system clean and pure. You can choose to arrange your regular maintenance when you need, or you can become a Peterson member and enjoy the benefits of regular maintenance and discounts.

There are many things that could go wrong with your heating and cooling system. Give your thermostat settings a quick check and check that any batteries are in working order. You can also check your circuit breakers as this is a common problem that our customers often overlook. No matter what heating or air conditioning system you have, Peterson can always assist.

You should never turn your system completely off when you leave for the day. Either raise or lower your thermostats three to five degrees from its normal set point. That way, your system maintains an ideal temperature all day, and you don’t have to power it on high when you get home.

If you notice an increase in the amount of dust circulating in your home, double-check the type of air filtration you’re using. The wrong size filter, or a low-quality type of filter, is going to be inefficient. You also might want to consider adding an air purifier to your home’s ventilation process.

To help you understand the main difference between the various kinds of whole-home systems, we’ve grouped them into two types: active and passive. Both types of purification systems work with your existing HVAC system, utilizing your home’s blower motor and ductwork to purify the air in your home. However, they work in two very different ways.

Passive systems generally wait for the air to come to them. Passive systems are those where you either install UV lights or a 13-rated MRV HEPA filter on your system. Here’s how they work.



A HEPA filter works just like your standard filter, only it’s rated higher to collect and stop much finer particulates from being circulated through your air. This is a relatively inexpensive way to remove some of those airborne toxins like mold, germs, and viruses. However, there is a catch to this method. (Get it, catch? Like, catching particles?) While the tight, dense weave of a HEPA filter is perfect for catching most of the fine particles in the air, it can also restrict airflow. This forces your HVAC system to work harder, and makes your system less efficient and could contribute to early system breakdowns. So, for the money you could be saving on this purification solution, it could potentially cost you a lot down the line.



Another alternative that purifies the air in a passive way is a UV light that attaches to the inside of your HVAC ducting. When the air moves past the UV light, the light kills the germs, viruses, bacteria, mold, volatile organic compounds, odors, etc. that might be floating in the air. But, like any HVAC system-mounted passive purification solution, this also has a downside. Because of where it sits inside your system, there’s no guarantee that the UV light will be able to clean all the air in your home. It’s dependent on the air that passes over the light for effectiveness. So, while this can be an effective solution, there are no guarantees that it can cover the whole home or assure that every harmful particle will pass over the UV light.



Rather than sitting and waiting for the pollutants to come through the system, active systems will go after pollutants in the air and on the surfaces of your home. An active purification system like the Reme-Halo installed in the ducting of your HVAC unit, and as the air passes over the Reme-Halo device, it sends ionized hydro-peroxides into the home on a search and destroy mission.

When these naturally occurring hydro-peroxides disperse through the air and settle on the surfaces of your home, they attach to particulates, pollutants, volatile organic compounds (cleaning products, chemical odors), smoke, mold, bacteria, and viruses, and change the pollutant’s chemical makeup. Through a process called cell lysing, these friendly oxidizers revert toxins back to harmless oxygen and hydrogen. Research on this process is extensive and there are no known health risks to these hydro-peroxides, which have existed naturally in our outside air for over 3.5 billion years.
