Perhaps you’ve noticed a buildup of dust in your home or musty odors in the home. This can be due to damaged, leaky ductwork.

Good indoor air quality (IAQ) is essential to both the comfort and health of our indoor spaces. Quality air is especially important these days, and with the amount of time we spend indoors, how healthy that air we breathe is and how well it prevents virus transmission are worthy concerns.

On average, Americans spend over 70% of their time indoors—you deserve the peace of mind that the air you breathe during that time is comfortable and healthy! You can make a huge difference in the health of your home by equipping your household with the right IAQ products and services. A great solution is a whole-home air purification system like the REME HALO® or HALO-LED™ in-duct air purifier.

At Barron Heating & Air Conditioning, we focus on three pillars: comfort, health, and energy efficiency. There’s no exception when it comes to our products installed and available services. Our team works with some of the best HVAC systems on the market today, including the Daikin Fit heat pump system.

When choosing a system for installation, it’s often tempting for homeowners to go with the cheapest heater or air conditioner they can find. This can be a costly mistake, however. Going with the lowest price version often sacrifices the performance quality for your home, ultimately binding you to high monthly payments to heat and cool your home due to how much energy your HVAC system will consume.

Performance is key! Whether you’re on the market for a new heater, AC system, or both, the Daikin Fit is an affordable option that makes performance a priority, providing the comfort you want while saving you money.
