Indoor Air Quality in Clarksville, TN
You can’t control what goes on outside, but it makes sense that you’d want the air in your home to be as clean as possible. That’s why we recommend our “Breathe Easy System” including advanced filtration and ultraviolet light treatment of your comfort system with every system we install.
Our Breathe Easy System features a high-performance return grille media air filter designed to fit in the same space as a standard 1″ return grille. It provides filtration up to 15 times more effective than a standard 1″ fiberglass furnace filter* and traps:
- Pet dander
- Mold spores
- Other allergens
Depending upon your home, this filter can last for up to one year without replacement.
- Eliminate mold spores in the air
- Kill up to 87% of certain live, airborne bacteria** in the air passing through your heating/cooling system
- Keep your system clean and efficient
We recommend replacing the bulb annually for the best results. There are many other indoor air quality products that could be right for your home. For more information about these products please call us at 931-645-2859, or send us a message.
*Relative performance rating based on initial fractional testing of new filter against 0.3 micron to 0.4 micron air particles when tested in accordance with ASHRAE standard 52.2.
**Test performed shows a single-pass kill rate of serratia marcescens bacteria in a clean metal 12″x25″ duct at an airflow of 2000 cfm using new lamps.

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Our indoor air can sometimes be more harmful than outdoor air! Here are two ways that you can improve your indoor air quality right now:
- Vacuum, dust, and clean your floors. Particularly if you have pets, keeping your floors as clean as possible is important. Pet dander can wreak havoc on our immune systems!
- Use a floor mat. If you haven’t already, you should place a large floor mat at the front entrance of your home. A door mat can help reduce the amount of pollutants and dirt that gets dragged in.
What causes indoor air quality problems?
There are many different reasons for indoor air quality problems – here are three of the main causes:
- Secondhand smoke. Smoke is undoubtedly one of the leading causes of poor indoor air quality. Whether you ingest the actual smoke secondhand, or just sit in a room where people have smoked, this can deeply damage your health.
- Biological sources. Mold, mildew, pollen, dust, insects, and other biological debris can negatively impact your indoor air quality.
- Household products and harsh chemicals. Certain paints and varnishes, as well as cleaning products, contain harmful chemicals that can have a negative impact on both your indoor air quality and your health.
How do I know which indoor air quality product is right for me?
The truth is, everyone’s household is different. When you’re trying to determine the best indoor air quality product for your home, there are a lot of factors to consider. For instance, do you or does someone in your family have a low tolerance for pet dander and other allergens? If so, you’ll want to consider a product that targets that specific issue. If you have a relatively high threshold for air quality issues, you may just need a different, better type of air filter. Feel free to contact Baggett Heating & Cooling for more info!
