Many Calgary-area homeowners depend on clean, breathable air that is light and free of toxins, especially those who may live with respiratory issues or illnesses that impact their breathing abilities. We at Distinct Heating & Cooling know the importance of keeping the air clean and refreshing, which is why our journeyman technicians focus on optimizing your indoor air quality when performing HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) services. To better help our valued customers appreciate the importance of clean indoor air, we’ve compiled a few key pieces of information that every homeowner should be aware of.
Without adequate air filtration such as with an HVAC system or humidifier, we are far more susceptible to environmental health hazards. Radon gas pollutants that cause lung cancer, second-hand smoke, and combustion pollutants such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen monoxide are common in homes, particularly if they don’t have tight seals from outside air or internal air filtration. In fact, according to EPA analysis, levels for many pollutants can be anywhere between 2 and 5 times higher indoors than outdoors.
This is because construction quality has improved 10-fold over the years. Because we are so skilled at sealing our homes from the outdoor elements, we are also inadvertently decreasing the amount of natural air circulation between our homes and the outdoors. While general “leakage” used to “clean” our homes’ air of toxins from common household cleaning products, paint, flooring glue, and other air pollutants, we now rely on effective air filtration for this more than ever.
The team of journeyman technicians at Distinct Heating & Cooling are specially trained to help Calgary-area homeowners keep their indoor air at clean, breathable, and safe levels. We perform a comprehensive in-home analysis of your air quality to help protect you, your household, and your home itself. Specialized monitors can be temporarily installed in your home that will work to detect dangerous toxin levels and provide occupants with precise data. This will allow for you to accurately pinpoint the precise air quality conditions in your Calgary-area home, safeguarding your health, comfort, wellness, and safety. Find out what you and your family are breathing and be confident in the air quality of your home with the professional assistance of the Distinct Heating & Cooling team.
For the healthiest, most comfortable, and cleanest air, inspecting air quality on a regular basis and using a reliable, clean HVAC system is crucial. Our team’s assistance isn’t only cost-effective and capable of helping you save energy by diagnosing precise indoor atmospheric conditions, but it also helps protect you, your loved ones, and your Calgary-area home. If you need your air quality tested or are simply curious about how efficiently your
furnace or central air conditioning unit is filtering air in your home, contact Distinct Heating & Cooling for the most effective and experience-driven service.

Air ventilators and filtration systems from Distinct Heating & Cooling can help reduce concentrations of micro-organisms such as mildew, mold, bacteria, and viruses from your HVAC system in addition to cleaning the air and helping to control dust and odour levels in your home.
A Heat Recovery Ventilator works with your Calgary heating and cooling system to exchange stale indoor air for fresh outside air at regular intervals. Whereas an air filtration system cleans the air of particulates and keeps dust and dirt out of vital equipment. This ensures your heating and cooling system performs at peak efficiency, which can help reduce maintenance and energy costs.
Choosing between ventilation and air filtration systems that will provide the very best results for you and your family can be a daunting task, especially if you aren’t knowledgeable about what makes a quality system. We’ll discuss all your available options to help you make an educated buying decision.
