You may not realize the harm that poor air quality does until you make improvements. Indoor air quality services help you identify problems and find resolutions, which can significantly improve overall air quality. As a result, you may find yourself breathing a little easier—literally. The more contaminated the air you and your family breathe, the more likely you'll suffer from illnesses and allergies. Even a small amount of indoor pollutants can raise stress levels and contribute to poor health.
As you improve your indoor air quality systems, you may see your sleep improve. Clean air means lowered chances of illness and reduced stress levels. This makes falling and staying asleep much easier. Cooler temperatures and improved air quality can transform the way you rest. When Aire Serv professionals perform checks on your HVAC system, we ensure it functions as efficiently as possible.
Improving indoor air quality may also mean lower utility bills. If you’re constantly switching your air conditioner on and off to save money, you inadvertently drive costs up. Air conditioners have to constantly play catch-up with this strategy, causing the system to work harder. New, energy-efficient HVAC units sidestep this dilemma by avoiding temperature dips while keeping the air cleaner. Since they are more affordable to run than older units are, they pay for themselves within a couple of years.
How to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Finding reliable indoor air quality service that you can trust may seem like a challenge, but the HVAC pros at your local Aire Serv have the experience and reputation that'll make your choice a lot easier. We’ll help improve the air quality in your home with these proven strategies:
Air Duct Cleaning - You take pride in maintaining a clean home, but pollutants may be lurking just out of sight. Mold, bacteria, and dust all hide inside air ducts, negatively impacting air quality. The service professionals at Aire Serv will perform a thorough ductwork inspection before cleaning and repairing any problems. This helps prevent any further contamination of your space.
Air Filters - We recommend changing typical air filters at least once every two to three months and box-type filters once a year. Replacing air filters regularly helps improve the air quality inside your home, cuts down on energy usage, and reduces the risk of expensive repairs while prolonging the life of your indoor air quality system. Higher efficiency filters can even reduce irritants such as mould spores, pollen, and bacteria. Check with an Aire Serv professional before installing specialty filters because certain filters may not be compatible with your system and can cause damage.
Air Purifiers/Electronic Air Cleaners - Air purifiers can remove pollutants such as mold, pet dander, smoke, and allergens. Whole-house units tend to be more effective than portable varieties. They can be added to your existing HVAC unit to filter out pollutants. Electronic air cleaners often rely on HEPA and UV technology to filter even the smallest particles from the air.
Dehumidifiers - When temperatures and humidity skyrocket, indoor pollutants thrive. A whole-house dehumidifier helps keep mold and mildew at bay. Such a system is especially useful when used in conjunction with your central HVAC unit. They work together to remove excess moisture from your space and improve overall air quality.
Mechanical Ventilation - The air inside your home is two to five times more polluted than the air outside. Mechanical ventilation systems such as window fans, attic fans, and whole-house ventilators can bring in fresh air, boosting indoor air quality and keeping your home comfortable. Air quality services help you determine which mechanical ventilation options are right for your home.
General Vacuuming and Cleaning - Daily vacuuming and dusting controls larger particles. However, the smallest particles cause the most irritation, and they can only be removed with filtering devices.
