Indoor Air Quality

Did you know that your health depends on the quality of air you breathe inside your home? Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of indoor air as it relates to your health and comfort. The majority of homeowners often neglect this important aspect of indoor living, which can lead to negative health effects. Indoor air quality should be everyone’s concern. Studies show that we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, so even a small lack of quality in your indoor air can have major affects on your health.

Why Does Poor Indoor Air Quality Matter?

Indoor air quality issues inevitably develop over time. The severity of indoor air quality issues depends on a large number of factorslike location, season, lifestyle, activities, condition of HVAC equipment, and presence of building components and furnishings. Any of these issues can create IAQ problems or perpetuate existing ones that negatively impact your health.

For example, pollen can be a major IAQ concern during the spring, and individuals who suffer from allergies are likely to have problems if the right system is not installed. Lifestyle also seriously impacts indoor air quality; if a homeowner smokes indoors, the quality of the air in the home severely decreases. The condition of a building’s HVAC equipment is an additional important factor in determining a indoor air quality. Leaky or dirty ductwork will compromise the quality of the air you breathe. Finally, building components and furnishings can be unexpected contributors to poor indoor air quality due to their release of volatile organic compounds, which are dangerous to your health.

How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

In any situation, there are effective solutions to improve poor air quality and the threats associated with it. TemperaturePro of Jersey Shore offers industry-leading indoor air quality services that address even the most complex indoor air quality issues. These products are among the best in the industry for cleaning the air inside your home or business:

  • Air Purifiers: Air purifiers pull contaminants directly from the air. The process is simple, effective, and beneficial to your health. Think of an air purifier as your first line of defense against common household air pollutants.
  • Air Humidifiers: Humidity level is a factor that contributes to IAQ. Humidity is damaging to your indoor air quality in both high and low levels. High levels of humidity facilitate the growth of mold, and mold spores can severely damaging to your health when breathed in. Low levels of humidity allow air pollutants to remain suspended in the air, inevitably being breathed in by a building’s inhabitants. A consistent, appropriate level of humidity makes your air healthier to breathe because air pollutants sink to the floor and are unlikely to be inhaled. Good humidity levels also has other benefits like improving dry skin conditions and preventing wood furniture from cracking.
  • Fresh Air Ventilators: Fresh air is one of the best ways to improve indoor air quality. Mechanical ventilators introduce a controlled amount of outdoor air into the home or business through your air distribution system. As outdoor air is drawn into the ductwork, stale indoor air is removed from the living area. Replenishing your home with fresh air can make a huge difference in your home’s or business’s indoor air quality.
  • UV Lamps: Harmful bacteria pose a threat to your family’s health. To reduce illnesses in your home, UV lamps can be installed in your system’s ductwork. These lights will destroy harmful bacteria with ultraviolet light before they return to your living spaces.

Duct Cleaning and Sealing Services

HVAC systems with leaky ducts are detrimental to indoor air quality and system efficiency. Leaky ducts pull in harmful air pollutants into the indoor environment. Over time, dirt built up in your ducts negatively impacts indoor air quality because dust, mold spores, and other harmful air pollutants can be picked up by the air you will breathe when the system is operating.

TemperaturePro of Jersey Shore provides duct cleaning and duct sealing services to combat these IAQ problems. Sealing your ductwork and cleaning the harmful pollutants from the ducts will vastly improve your indoor air and as an added benefit, reduce your monthly costs on your energy bills. Choose these two services with TemperaturePro of Jersey Shore for clean air and system efficiency.
