Homes built over the last two decades are much tighter than those built previously, allowing for greater energy efficiency. As a result, however, fresh air exchange is more limited—and polluted air can become trapped inside your home or business. This leads to an increase in airborne sickness and an exacerbation of allergies and asthma. Harrell King Heating & Air technicians specialize in indoor air quality solutions that preserve the health and safety of your family, personnel, and guests.
Using HEPA air filters, ultraviolet light purification systems, and electrostatic particulate collection, our team improves air quality and helps defend against common colds, viruses, and allergies.
Chances are you’ve heard of HEPA filters before. This is a term you’ll often see when researching vacuum cleaners or air purifiers. HEPA filters, or High-Efficiency Particulate Air filters, are created and tested to follow the current HEPA filter standard. These filters remove at least 99.97 percent of particles 0.3-microns in diameter from the air that passes through the filter. Obviously, that’s the majority of the pollutants in the air—which is why HEPA filters are considered some of the best in the business!
If you’re interested in removing 99.97 percent of the pollutants (like mold, bacteria, dust, dander, and more) from your home’s indoor air, then a whole-house HEPA filtration system is the ideal choice for you. These systems work in conjunction with your HVAC system, so they filter the warm or cool air from your heating or cooling system as it passes through your home.
If you’re primarily worried about the germs in your home, an ultraviolet light air purification system might be for you! These UV air purifiers zap any airborne bacteria, mold, or contaminants to keep your home as healthy as possible. These systems are installed directly into your HVAC system, where microbes and odors can be eliminated consistently as air is circulated through the rooms in your home.
Yes, we said odors! UV air purifiers can remove unwanted scents from the air by turning the odor-causing molecules into water vapor and CO2. That’s in addition to removing unwanted allergens and bacteria from the air in your home to keep your family healthy.

Electrostatic filters are washable and are intended to be “forever filters,” meaning they’ll never need to be replaced, but just cleaned regularly. These filters use multiple layers of ventilated metal, which your home’s indoor air passes through. When it passes through the first layer of metal ventilation, molecules in the air (like bacteria, allergens, dander, and more) will become positively charged by the friction against the metal. Then, those positively charged molecules will stick themselves to the next few layers of metal ventilation, as the clean air continues to pass through. This is the process of electrostatic air filtration, which traps dust and other unwanted contaminants in this filter rather than floating around in your home!
The major benefit of these types of filters is their cost. Since they never have to be replaced, they’re much easier on your wallet than replaceable air filters, so they’re able to keep your home clean at a lower price, as long as you’re okay with washing off the dust and contaminants from the filter every month or so.

Improving your air quality system can reduce the risk of health problems for you, your family, and your pets, reduce the odds of pests infesting your home, discourage the growth of mold and mildew, keep your electronics and mechanical devices working without problems, and more. To say nothing of simple improvements to your comfort!
There are countless devices that can give you some idea of what sort of air quality you have, each measuring different factors. You might check the humidity of your home, the concentration of VOCs, or any number of other likely contaminants you might be concerned about. Instead of buying or renting a bunch of equipment, however, it’s usually best to let our team analyze your home either as a discrete trip or during a visit for maintenance or another HVAC issue.
Your standard HVAC air filter certainly can work to filter debris from your ventilation, but it can only go so far. If you’re using a standard filter, you may not be removing much more than large dust particles; enough to improve allergies a little, but it mostly serves to keep your HVAC system from breaking down from dust accumulation. More advanced filters can remove far more from the air…but still not as much as dedicated filtration solutions. And no filter will touch on humidity problems, or microbes too small for filtration—you’ll need special solutions for those.
VOC stands for volatile organic compound, which refers to a class of organic compounds that are emitted as gasses from certain solids or liquids. These are usually found in your gas as fumes resulting from household cleaners, the off-gassing of various building materials, and the like. They can be very dangerous to your health in common household concentrations; as the name suggests, they’ll react with the organic chemicals of your body quite easily, which can have all sorts of effects.
Problems caused by poor indoor air quality can vary from subtle improvements, of the sort where you won’t notice that it helped you avoid problems you’d have otherwise had, to significant ones, like resolving insomnia or significantly reducing allergies. How big of a change you see will be very dependent on your current air quality and how susceptible you are to overt symptoms, but your health might be at risk even if everything seems fine.
