When it comes to indoor air quality, most air conditioning and heating contractors don’t know what to look for. Good thing for you, Unique Air isn’t your standard HVAC company!
Here’s a little know factoid: The air INSIDE your home could be 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. Poor indoor air quality, or IAQ, could have a negative impact on your health, not to mention your family’s overall comfort.
That is why Unique Air offers in-home Indoor Air Quality consultation with one of our BPI-certified specialists. We’ll present you with a variety of indoor air quality options that fit your needs and budget:
Humidifiers work with your HVAC system to optimize humidity levels throughout your home. Maintaining proper humidity levels is essential for comfort during the winter months. Moderate humidity levels make you feel warmer at lower temperatures, so you can lower your thermostat without sacrificing comfort. You’ll will often notice a difference in your skin as well!
Have you ever noticed a musty smell in your basement? Do you see mold collecting in lower floors of your home, especially in areas where a part of your home might be underground or on a slope against the ground outside?
Regulating indoor humidity is essential for comfort and air quality, and a whole-house dehumidifier can help create a more comfortable indoor environment. It works by reducing the amount of moisture in your air. With less indoor humidity, you'll feel far more comfortable indoors, even at higher temperatures!
Cleaners & Filters
From traditional 1" air filters to high efficiency options, Unique offers an array of possibilities for cleaning and filtering the air inside your home.
There are two types of ultraviolet (UV) lights:
For preventative maintenance: A light the cleans your indoor coil by eliminating any bacteria or mold
For air purification: A light installed inside your ductwork cleans the air before it enters your living space
The second type of UV light sends friendly oxidizers (ionized hydro peroxides) into your air stream to wipe out bacteria, viruses, odors, and pollutants at the source.

Benefits of a Whole-Home Indoor Air Quality System
Homes in North Carolina are hermetically sealed compared to the old days. Our windows, doors, and insulation all keep indoor air inside and outdoor air outside. That’s great for energy efficiency, but it means that we’re breathing in more dust mites, pet dander, cleaning product fumes, and environmental pollution while we’re sitting inside our own homes.
NCPH lists your home HVAC system as one of the biggest factors of indoor environmental quality. Indoor air problems contribute to everything from headaches and infections to mold and decay.

Our Services for Indoor Air Quality in Charlotte
Moisture control and air cleaners make up the most critical components of an HVAC indoor air quality solution. Unique Air can install a whole-house humidifier or dehumidifier that works with your central heating and air conditioning. These IAQ systems draw your treated air through a filter and then use condensation to adjust the moisture levels automatically.
Unique Air also offers a range of options for air filtration and ventilation. In addition to changing your air filter or installing a new washable filter, we can add UV light air purification for even better results. Ultraviolet light can clean the coil on your indoor air handler or be placed inside the ductwork to treat the air as it passes into your home.
