Indoor air quality solutions

Breathe Easier in Highland: A Look at our Indoor Air Quality Products

Welcome to our comprehensive guide to indoor air quality (IAQ) solutions at Collins Heating and Cooling. We offer a broad range of top-quality products tailored to create a healthier, more comfortable indoor environment.

Understanding the differences between air purification, air filtration, and maintaining ideal humidity is the first step in enhancing the air you breathe, especially if you’re dealing with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues. We’re here to help you explore each category and find the perfect solution for your home.

In-Duct Air Purification Systems

We spend an average of 90% of our time indoors where the air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. For homes with severe allergies, asthma, or high risk of airborne pathogens like pet dander or mold, air purification is a game-changer.

Our state-of-the-art air purification systems from RGF, including the revolutionary REME HALO®, work tirelessly to neutralize these airborne and surface contaminants. These systems don’t just capture pollutants—they actively eliminate them, making your home a safer environment for you and your loved ones. Curious about proactive air cleaning? We can tell you more about our RGF in-duct air purification systems and their benefits.

Air Filtration Products

Air filtration is the frontline defense against common airborne pollutants. Our high-quality air filtration products from Aprilaire capture dust, pollen, and other larger airborne particles as air passes through. Think of these systems as the gatekeepers of your home—only letting clean, filtered air circulate.

These are ideal for homes near busy roads or in areas prone to wildfires where particulate matter is a concern, people with pets. They’re also excellent for people with mild to moderate allergies, turning your home into a haven from outdoor allergens.  Ready to breathe easier and reduce everyday pollutants? Our team can guide you through our selection of Aprilaire air filtration products.

Furnace Humidifiers

Air quality isn’t just about what’s in the air—it’s also about maintaining the right balance. During winter months, the air inside your home can become too dry, leading to dry skin, irritated sinuses, and even increased susceptibility to respiratory infections.

That’s where furnace humidifiers come in. Our top-quality furnace humidifiers from Aprilaire work seamlessly with your heating system to add just the right amount of moisture to your air. They not only ensure your personal comfort but also protect the structural integrity of your home.

Dry air can lead to cracks in wooden furniture and floorings—our furnace humidifiers help keep everything in optimum condition. Curious about how to make your winter cozier and healthier? We can provide more information about our Aprilaire furnace humidifiers.
