The Importance of Good Indoor Air Quality
The quality of the air within your home has a direct impact on health. The effects from air pollutants may be experienced right away or possibly even years later. Ventilating your home properly, along with using products designed to improve indoor air quality, will help decrease the impact of pollutants, bacteria and mold on your family.
An inadequate ventilation system can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying air pollutants out of the home. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

How IAQ Affects Your Home Environment
As a professional HVAC service repair and installation company, we know that your first priority is to have a home environment that keeps your home warm in the winter months and cool during the hottest days of summer. Yet most homeowners overlook the quality of air in their home. This is more than about breathing clean air, but it can also affect your budget in a number of ways.
Indoor air quality or IAQ, is a way to measure the quality of your indoor air that directly affects both your health and the cost of keeping your home at an ideal temperature throughout the year. You will likely save money on repair costs if you have an IAQ assessment done on an annual basis.
What An IAQ Assessment Does
We will send a service technician to your home to conduct an IAQ. There are several things we will measure during the test, followed by a list of recommendations on how you can improve your air quality and potentially reduce your home heating and cooling costs.
- measure your indoor humidity levels
- check for airborne mold levels
- exterior inspection of your home
- interviewing the people in your home to find out if there are any complaints about the air quality
