What Causes Poor IAQ?
A culmination of things could be compromising your indoor air quality from pet dander to formaldehyde. Even your appliances, such as your oven and HVAC system, can contribute to an unhealthy environment. In homes with inadequate ventilation, meaning there is little exchange between fresh and stale air, these pollutants can gradually build up and take a toll on your health. Common sources of indoor air pollution include:
- Dust mites
- Viruses and bacteria
That’s why it’s vital that you combat airborne toxins and biological matter with professional IAQ solutions. We’ve brought lasting relief to homeowners throughout Racine, helping to minimize allergens, control dust and remove harmful toxins.
How Can We Protect Your Air?
Our indoor air quality technicians can assess the condition of your air to determine the cause of pollution. From there, we’ll recommend the most effective treatment based on your needs and budget. Our IAQ services include the following:
- Dehumidifiers: A muggy home is an uncomfortable home. Ideally, your home’s indoor humidity level should be maintained around 30 and 50 percent. If your air feels damp and heavy, we recommend installing a whole-home dehumidifier. This device works in concert with your central HVAC system to deliver drier air.
- Humidifiers: Your respiratory system requires a certain amount of moisture in the air. Inadequate humidity dries out your sinuses, making you susceptible to the flu and the common cold during the winter months. A whole-house humidifier delivers water vapor through your ductwork, ensuring every space has proper humidity.
- UV Lights: As air passes through your ductwork, a germicidal UV light neutralizes microorganisms and viruses, ensuring the cleanest possible air. In addition, UV lights eliminate odors and prevent the spread of mold and mildew in your ducts and cooling coils.
- High-Efficiency Filters: The common residential air filter inside your central HVAC system does little more than catch large dust particles. High-efficiency filters, however, screen out microscopic pollutants, such as bacteria and smoke, dramatically improving your IAQ.
