Variations in local air quality can catch your attention, but indoor air pollution in Rockwall, TX, is the main reason people install air purifiers. You’ve heard that indoor air is up to five times worse, with locally generated contaminants circulating through vents and lingering in the air.
You and your pets breathe in chemicals, allergens, mold, mildew spores, and bacteria and viruses. Some of these substances multiply over time. The technology is available to remote or reduce them, with air filters and UV lights playing specific roles in improving your home’s indoor air quality.
"I was very impressed with the responsiveness of this company! I called and within an hour Caleb was assessing the situation in my yard. He was quite the professional and made me feel like he knew what he was doing. He gave me my options and he didn't pressure me to make any quick decisions. He also communicated very well what I could expect with every step of the repair. Quick and timely service! Great job Bacon Plumbing and Caleb!" - Danielle C.
Your family’s symptoms or a test of your home’s air may indicate specific problems to address. For instance, homes which trigger indoor allergies benefit from removing pet dander, or mold and mildew spores. Air purifiers can use active methods to draw even tiny viruses and bacteria out of the air with ionic and other technologies.
The more these substances are neutralized, the less they’ll circulate, gather in your ducts, and multiply. Complementing air purifiers with other active technologies provides broader solutions. Passive filtration significantly reduces the material that passes through air purifiers, enhancing their effectiveness.
Our Bacon Plumbing Heating Air Electric team can help you target your primary air quality concerns and those we know are common in the area, producing the most effective results for your Rockwall home.
Active air purification addresses air quality problems like:
Circulating viruses and bacteria in your airflow
Mold and mildew, both airborne spores and growth
Spreading allergens from pets, plants, fragrances
Odors from cooking (even bacon!), litter boxes, smoke
Whole-House Air Filters in Rockwall
HEPA air filters are a staple of indoor air quality solutions, providing one micron or less filtration. They’re highly effective and commonly found in laboratories, medical facilities, and other locations where airborne contaminants are a major concern. Filters are rated using the MERV system.
HEPA air filters get a high rating of 17 to 20, while standard furnace filters are MERV 6 to 8. HEPA filtration can help with tobacco smoke, pet dander, and other potent sources of allergens. Lower MERV ratings efficiently capture larger particles such as carpet fibers, pollen, lint, and dust.
Selecting the right air filter for your home is part of Bacon Plumbing Heating Air Electric air quality system design. It helps to reduce the workload on other components such as ionic devices.

Sanitizing UV Lights
The energy emitted by UV lights, usually UV-C or “short wave” type, is powerful enough to kill biological contaminants that multiply in your home or even your body. This energy eliminates their ability to reproduce, providing effects beyond filtration.
Combined with filtration to remove them from the air, UV lights are highly effective at creating a healthy breathing environment. Neutralizing mold and mildew spores also keep them from multiplying in damp areas of your Rockwall home or your ductwork. UV lights are installed inside your heating and cooling system, keeping their potent energy contained for your safety.
With the right configuration of air purifiers, air filters, UV lights, and other air quality strategies, Bacon Plumbing Heating Air Electric can make a big difference in your Rockwall home’s air. Call today to find out more!
