Air Quality Costs vs Benefits

Homeowners often struggle to justify the costs of indoor air quality products for their home, because unlike heating and cooling equipment, the benefits don’t seem to be tangible. However, at Cates Heating and Cooling, we know just how much a family can benefit from having indoor air quality products installed in their homes.


The cost of indoor air quality products can range drastically. There are so many different kinds of air purifiers on the market, so you could spend anywhere from a few hundred to a couple of thousand dollars on an air purification system. Installation fees will vary based on the company you use to perform the installation. However, no matter what you spend on an air purification system or humidifier or any other indoor air quality product, the benefits far outweigh the cost of purchasing the product and having it installed.

To find out the exact costs associated with having a certain product installed in your home, it is best to contact us directly for a consultation. Our technicians can tell you which products will help make the air in your home as clean as possible and how much purchase and installation will cost you.


The main benefits of having clean air in your home are all health-related. When the air in your home is clean, allergies and asthma are less likely to cause problems for you and your family. For allergy and asthma issues, diagnosis and treatment can be expensive and take a lot of time.

It is also harder for viruses and bacteria to live in a home that is kept at the proper humidity levels or contains an air purifier. These germs can cause illnesses that can keep you home from work and send you to the doctor. The loss of income from missed work and doctor bills can add up quickly. For many families, these costs can become much grander than the cost of purchasing and installing air quality equipment in the home.

Mold and mildew can be lurking in houses that are too humid. Controlling the humidity levels can prevent the growth of mold and mildew, which can lead to serious illnesses. Keep your family safe from the nasty toxins that can be present in mold and keep your wallet full by preventing the need to have the nasty gunk removed from your home. Not to mention, the medical costs of those in contact with mold can be quite high, especially if it is unclear that mold is the culprit.

While the main benefits of having clean indoor air are mainly health related, there are so many other things to consider. Maintaining your home and missing work are other major problems that poor indoor air quality can lead to.
