Breathe easier all year long with improved indoor air quality delivered by experienced HVAC contractor - Michiana Mechanical. Through the implementation of clean air purifiers, proper indoor humidification, a media air cleaner, and UV light purification, we can provide better air inside your home.

Outdoor air is continually being cleansed by Mother Nature using the natural processes of weather, rain, wind, lightning and ultraviolet energy from the sun. Mother Nature’s methods of cleaning outdoor air are not naturally present in our indoor air environment. Man-made synthetic building materials, furnishings and household cleaning products have created a virtual chemical soup inside of our homes - with no natural method of control.


One of the main reasons for heightened public concern about deteriorating indoor air quality is the alarming increase in the number of children and young adults with severe allergies and asthma.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 2001 National Health Interview Study, over 7.6 million children (5-17 years) and over 12.7 million young adults (18-44 years) suffer from asthma. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers to the public. EPA research also concluded that indoor air can be two to five times (and sometimes as much as 100 times!) more polluted than the WORST outside air!

Since research indicates Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, it’s no wonder that asthma and allergy suffering is on the rise! But the experts on indoor air quality and your premier HVAC contractor in Northern Indiana can help you wage war on indoor air quality.

The “Tight” Home

Why has indoor air quality deteriorated so much over the last thirty to forty years? Changes in new home construction practices that evolved out of the 1970’s energy crisis have created “tight homes” - tightly sealed, heavily insulated and very energy efficient homes.

While these new construction practices help to conserve energy, which is good for our national security and our pocketbooks, they also “lock-in” allergenic particles, infectious agents and toxic compounds, which are bad for the health and well-being of our families.

Mold, Fungi & Dust Mites

Breathe easier all year long with improved indoor air quality delivered by experienced HVAC contractor - Michiana Mechanical. Through the implementation of clean air purifiers, proper indoor humidification, a media air cleaner, and UV light purification, we can provide better air inside your home.

Heating and air conditioning ducts which are dark, damp and rich in “nutrients” provide an excellent breeding ground for mold, fungi and dust mites which can spread rapidly when these ducts are in use to heat and cool the home.

Poor ventilation and dirty filters are also major contributors to unhealthy contaminates in the home. Mold and fungi can cause “discomfort”, infections and commonly trigger allergic reactions. A Mayo Clinic study found that “Allergic Fungal Sinusitis” was diagnosed in 93% of 101 consecutive surgical cases with CRS (Chronic Rhino Sinusitis). Over 36 million Americans suffer from Chronic Sinusitis.

Another allergenic irritant, the dust mite, thrives in warm, humid conditions and feeds upon dead skin flakes shed by humans and pets. Each person can shed up to 700,000 skin scales per day, creating an abundant food source for this prehistoric-looking nemesis. Approximately 10 to 15 percent of the population suffers from an allergy related to dust mites, with most allergic to the air borne, breathable dust mite feces and not the dust mite itself. About 40,000 dust mites can “thrive” in only one ounce of dust, each releasing 20 fecal pellets a day into the air you breathe. So, imagine how many dust mites may live in even the cleanest homes!

Whether you decide to address part or all of the danger levels identified by the Centers for Disease Control and the Environmental Protection Agency, Michiana Mechanical - your trusted indoor air quality professionals - can help you make the right decision for your family’s long term indoor comfort.

TrueSTEAM Humidification Systems

Honeywell’s breakthrough TrueSTEAM Humidification System can ensure that your home and family are getting the right amount of moisture.

Breathe easier all year long with improved indoor air quality delivered by experienced HVAC contractor - Michiana Mechanical. Through the implementation of clean air purifiers, proper indoor humidification, a media air cleaner, and UV light purification, we can provide better air inside your home.

Your home is a lot like your body. It needs to stay properly hydrated in order to maintain the health and comfort of those living in it.

Air that is too dry can act like a giant sponge, soaking moisture up from everything that it touches in your home – your woodwork, wood floors and furnishings – not to mention you – exhibited in symptoms of dry skin, chapped lips, dry nasal passages and static electricity.

No doubt about it, dry air can take a toll on your home, your family and your comfort.

A TrueSTEAM Humidification System offers the following benefits:

  • Moisture on Demand
    TrueSTEAM works by producing its own steam independent of equipment operation, so your home gets moisture when it needs it most.
  • Eco-Friendly
    TrueSTEAM is the most eco-friendly way to humidify your home, because it uses up to 70% less water while delivering more moisture than traditional whole-house humidifiers.
  • TrueSTEAM
    While other humidifiers rely on moisture-filled pads that can be susceptible to bacteria growth in the water and the air stream, TruSTEAM delivers “true steam” – the cleanest form of humidification.
  • Reduced Heating Bills
    In addition to keeping your home and family comfortable, TrueSTEAM can help reduce heating bills. Because humidified air feels warmer, you’ll be able to turn your thermostat down for energy savings.
  • Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind
    TrueSTEAM is installed out-of-sight by your experienced HVAC contractor - Michiana Mechanical - into your home’s central heating and cooling system. You can forget about having to fill clunky, portable units because TrueSTEAM automatically fills itself.
  • Minimal Maintenance
    Simply clean once a year with soap and water and, the rest of the time, it cleans itself automatically.
