The Importance of Indoor Air Quality
There are good reasons to be concerned about improving your indoor air quality. The Environmental Protection Agency reports that the air in many homes and commercial buildings can be two to five times more polluted than the air outdoors. Dust, pet dander, chemicals, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants in the air can cause serious health problems.
The symptoms of poor air quality include:
- Allergy symptoms
- Asthma symptoms
- Skin irritation or rashes
- More frequent upper respiratory infections
- Strain on your heating and cooling systems
In addition to the physical symptoms, your home may have poor air quality if you have noticed that the air is very humid or too dry. If the air inside your home has a stale odor, you see signs of mold or mildew growth, or you have excessive static electricity in the winter, your indoor air quality needs attention.
There are a variety of options for products and services to improve your air quality. Excessive dust, pet dander, and other contaminants can get inside your air ducts and HVAC equipment, causing poor indoor air quality. These problems can often be improved with professional duct cleaning and regular heating and air conditioning equipment maintenance. In between professional services, be sure to change your air filters regularly to reduce pollutants in the air.
You can also have equipment installed to clean the air. Products to improve indoor air quality range from filters that strain out smaller particles to whole-house air cleaners and purifiers. The best equipment for your home will vary, depending on the specific contaminants that are causing concern. For example, air cleaners can remove dust and other particulates. If you are concerned about bacteria, viruses, or mold spores, a UV air purification system can neutralize microorganisms for healthier air.
At Family Man Heating and Cooling, we can recommend the best air quality solutions for your home. Whether you need equipment maintenance, duct cleaning, or a whole-house filtration system, we can provide the services that are best suited to your needs.
