Indoor Air Quality Services for Western Kentucky

Indoor Air Quality

Your health and your family’s health depend on the air quality in your home. You should keep this in mind when selecting an HVAC service. Although there are plenty of things you can do on your own to maintain or improve your indoor air quality (IAQ), a good HVAC contractor can be a huge help in this area by providing indoor air quality products that work along with your HVAC system.

Identifying IAQ Pollutants

It is rather easy to identify whether or not you are accumulating dust and/or pollen in your home. However, other more insidious indoor air pollutants may be little more difficult to detect.

Carbon monoxide can be a real threat to the health of your family. Fortunately, carbon monoxide detectors are easy to get a hold of, and they are affordable. This one simple step can help you and your family avoid catastrophe. However, you should still have a professional inspection of your heating and air condition system a couple times per year.

Secondhand smoke is another indoor air pollutant that harms your home’s air quality. It can irritate your nose, throat, and eyes. That’s why it’s best to avoid smoking in your home and prevent others from doing so as well.

Solutions to IAQ Problems

We know how much of a hassle it can be to live in a home with poor indoor air quality. Your family’s health matters to us, and that’s why we offer you the best solutions to enhancing your air quality. Here are a few products we offer to make your air easy to breathe:

  • Air purifiers: Indoor air cleaners remove pollutants from the air. Some air filtration devices are installed in an HVAC system’s ductwork with the goal of cleaning the air in the entire house. You also have the option of using portable room air cleaners to clean specific areas of a room or an entire room.
  • Humidifiers: Humidifiers are typically used during the winter when the indoor air is too dry. Low humidity levels can cause health issues, such as nose irritation, sinus congestion, and bloody noses. Investing in a humidifier can alleviate these issues by increasing the humidity in the air.
  • Dehumidifiers: Do you have allergy sufferers in your home? Or does your child have frequent asthma attacks? You should probably check to see if there is too much moisture in your home, especially during the summer months. If so, purchasing a dehumidifier is the perfect solution. Dehumidifiers decrease the humidity in the air, making it less dry and easier to breathe.
