According to the 2023 State of the Air report by the American Lung Association, Wisconsin received a C for high ozone days and a B for particle pollution.

Overall, Wisconsin meets all federal air quality standards—however, some parts of the state still have unhealthy levels of pollutants.

While there are limited steps you can take to control outdoor air quality, indoors offers more control.

Our goal at Midwest Heating & Cooling is to help you earn an A+ for air quality inside your New Berlin home. Our NATE-certified team has over 20 years of experience providing heating, cooling, and healthy indoor air solutions that fit your budget.

Let’s explore ways to improve the air quality inside your home.

A Passing Grade for Air Quality

Nationwide, the report finds that nearly 36 percent of Americans—119.6 million people—still live in places with failing grades for unhealthy levels of ozone or particle pollution.

Locally, the Milwaukee-Waukesha region received a passing C grade for particle pollution and the number of ozone days. Overall, the report finds that “Wisconsin has relatively good air quality, but there is still room for improvement.”
