Why Indoor Air Quality Is Important for Your Family's Comfort
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), indoor air quality is a major health risk, and about 99% of the world's population breathes in unclean air. Additionally, the air inside your home can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside, based on various contaminants. Indoor air quality doesn't just affect those with allergies. It's important for everyone, especially children and older adults. Here are some signs of poor indoor air quality.
- Itchy or watery eyes
- Respiratory irritation
- Unpleasant odors
- Excessive dust
How to Manage Indoor Pollution and Air Quality Concerns
Healthy indoor air starts with your HVAC system. Replace the filters regularly and schedule preseason tune-ups to ensure your equipment is in proper working order. Simple strategies, such as keeping windows and doors closed and using doormats, can reduce the number of pollutants that enter your home.
If you're still struggling with humidity issues, airborne contaminants, or odors, installing additional technology, such as an air humidifier or purifier, can help. Our skilled service technicians will also assess your ductwork and HVAC equipment as problems with these systems can affect comfort and air quality as well.
Is a Whole-House Air Purifier Right for Your Home?
To reduce indoor pollutants below target levels, you may need to install a whole-home air purifier. These systems are easy to maintain and are much more effective than portable models. We offer products that physically trap and remove contaminants, exhaust stale indoor air, and balance humidity levels.
In addition to providing germ-fighting air filters, we can install UV lamps that destroy odor-causing microbes within your HVAC system. Equipment recommendations are based on a comprehensive in-home assessment and a discussion with the homeowner to determine which concerns to address.
Our goal is always to ensure 100% customer satisfaction by delivering quality systems designed to meet your needs at an affordable price.
