The Summers Difference

Indoor Air Quality Services in Merrillville, IN

These days, people spend more time breathing the air inside their home than anywhere else. While it’s not something at the forefront of most people’s minds, the air people breathe at home can have a significant impact on their overall health. The Environmental Protection Agency has identified indoor air pollution as a major risk to health. 

Homeowners in Merrillville, IN, who want to improve the air quality inside their homes can trust the experienced HVAC technicians at Summers Plumbing Heating and Cooling to provide fast, affordable solutions to address a wide array of common indoor air quality problems. 


Most people only think of air pollution when it’s obvious, taking the form of smoke or fog, but the reality is that airborne pollutants aren’t usually visible. Sometimes the only visible sign of air pollution is large amounts of dust settling on surfaces throughout a home, requiring frequent dusting to keep the home clean. 

But dust should be the least of people’s worries. Some invisible particulates can create health problems in those who breathe them in, especially vulnerable individuals like the elderly, children, or those with chronic respiratory conditions like asthma. Some symptoms to look out for include:

  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Allergic reactions
  • Dry, itchy, or watering eyes
  • Fatigue
  • Labored breathing or shortness of breath
  • Sore throats
  • Irritated or congested sinuses
  • Dry skin
  • Chapped lips
  • Headaches 

While many of these symptoms can also come from common illnesses like colds, those illnesses usually resolve after one week or so. If these symptoms have been persistent for longer than that, there’s a good chance that airborne pollutants are to blame.


There are a few different solutions available to help clean air and make it safer and healthier to breathe. These solutions are all effective steps to take on their own, but the professional HVAC technicians at Summers Plumbing Heating and Cooling can help advise which combination of solutions best meets your needs and budget. 


As air moves through a home’s air ducts, it carries dust and debris with it. This dust and debris like to settle on the surfaces inside the ducts, especially in the spring and fall when forced air systems like air conditioning and heating aren’t running. When these systems are turned back on, this dust may be blown out through vents to settle on surfaces, leading to frequent dusting and respiratory irritation.

Our technicians will use specialized equipment to clear the dust and debris off the hard-to-reach surfaces inside the ducts and will also look for and seal any leaks in the ducts that could be acting as entry points for more dust to enter the system.


Air filters are the most basic component of air cleaning that most homes have. Keeping these filters clean and replacing them when needed is a simple piece of home maintenance that many homeowners overlook to the detriment of their air quality. 

Dirty filters are not effective, and extremely clogged ones can put a strain on a home’s forced-air systems, decreasing the lifespan of air conditioners and furnaces. Our technicians can help clean these filters and identify ones that need to be replaced. 


Balancing a home’s humidity level is very important. Too humid and there will be a perfect environment for mold and mildew, too hot and you’ll be suffering from dry skin and chapped lips.

Whole-home humidifiers and de-humidifier systems are great solutions for maintaining a comfortable and healthy humidity level indoors. These systems can be installed into existing HVAC systems and don’t require daily maintenance like their stand-alone counterparts.


Basic filters only catch the largest of particles, leaving small ones like mold spores, viruses, and bacteria-free to float and cause problems in those who inhale them. HEPA filters, media air cleaners, and UV light filters help capture and eliminate these more elusive particles for comprehensive air purification.


The HVAC technicians who work with Summers Plumbing Heating and Cooling receive thorough training to ensure they’ll be able to handle anything they find while working in your home. They also carry all the necessary licenses, certifications, and insurance to perform the work they do, so you can rest assured that all the work is being done under local rules and regulations.
