Today, many of us spend the majority of our time indoors while our indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than the outside. If you have the sneaking suspicion that the quality of your air is negatively affecting your health, or you have allergy sufferers, young children or family members with respiratory issues living in your home, you may consider hiring an Indoor Air Quality professional. A professional can help you diagnose and remedy indoor air quality issues.
5 Signs You Have Poor Indoor Air Quality
1. You can see excessive dust on your furniture or in your air
2. Dirt and debris buildup on your air vents
3. Musty or stale odors in your home
4. You observe mold or mildew
5. You or your family experience sinus infections, dry eyes, throat irritation or headaches frequently and most often while at home
There are many solutions on the market today; a skilled HVAC professional can help guide you to the best solution for your home. During the initial visit, a good contractor will ask questions about the issues you’ve experienced and what your expectations are so they will have a good idea how they can help. They may recommend any one or a combination of the following products and services.
Duct Cleaning- Cleaning the ductwork in your home ensures that your system is not circulating dust, particles, allergens, bacteria and odors in your home.
Air Cleaners- Most heating and cooling systems only use a basic air filter. These are designed to protect your equipment and not you and your family. A whole-house air cleaner is up to 40 times more efficient than basic filters at removing pollen, dust, dander, spores, bacteria and viruses from your home.
UV Germicidal Lights- UV Germicidal Lamps kill bacteria and mold that can grow on the indoor coil, improving the air quality and removing any musty and stale odors from your home.
