Air Filtration

The easiest and quickest way to increase the air quality is to improve the filter on your furnace/indoor unit. As mentioned above, Bryant offers an air filter cabinet, as well as an air purifying filter.

Proven effective against 3 common pathogens including the common cold, it works silently in-line with your HVAC system, taking out up to 75% of organisms as small as .30 micron with every wave of air that passes through it.

This filtration is far more superior to the standard pleated filters, which are the cheapest option.


Achieving fresh outdoor style air in your home is easier with a Ventilator. The innovation experts at Bryant have designed a ventilator that removes stale air from your home while keeping valuable energy from escaping. They work quietly and efficiently, infusing your home with fresh air year round.  They also pre-condition the outside air coming in so that it matches the indoor air temperature.

Natural Methods

Along with technological advances, there are also natural methods to increase your homes indoor air quality. We’ve learned over the years that plants are natures air purifiers. Having more plants in the home is a great way to filter out some bad air. Salt lamps and beeswax candles are also proven ways to clean the air.
