Indoor Air Quality

Did you know that the air you breathe inside your home influences your health? Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of indoor air as it pertains 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 have shown that we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, ultimately proving the severity of the situation when indoor air quality is ignored.

Concerns of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality issues naturally develop over time. The severity of indoor air quality issues depends on a large number of factorsincluding 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 for specific areas during the spring, particularly to individuals who suffer from allergies. Lifestyle can seriously impact indoor air quality; if a homeowner smokes indoors, the quality of the air in the home suffers severely. The condition of the HVAC equipment is an important factor in determining a building’s indoor air quality. Leaky or dirty ductwork can compromise the quality of the air you breathe. Finally, building components and furnishings are 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

It’s clear that there’s a need for an effective solution to poor quality air in your home or business and the threats associated with it. TemperaturePro Chicago offers industry-leading indoor air quality services that address even the most complex indoor air quality issues. The following list of 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. Think of an air purifier as your first line of defense against common household air pollutants. The purification process is simple, effective, and beneficial to your health.
  • Air Humidifiers: One factor that plays into indoor air quality is the humidity level. Humidity is damaging to your indoor air quality both when it is too high and when it is too low. High levels of humidity facilitate the growth of mold, and mold spores are 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. By controlling and maintaining a consistent, appropriate level of humidity, your air is healthier to breathe because air pollutants sink to the floor and are unlikely to be inhaled. Good humidity levels also help to improve dry skin conditions and prevent wood furniture from cracking.
  • Air Scrubber Plus: Air Scrubber Plus® is a revolutionary new system designed to help eliminate indoor air quality risks by reducing air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors), cigarette smoke, dust, pollen, mold, odor-causing bacteria, and odors caused by pets and cooking. ActivePure™ technology cleans, freshens, and purifies the air using specialized germicidal UV light waves along with a proprietary catalytic process that creates enviroscrubbing molecules of oxygen and hydrogen, just like nature’s outdoor scrubbers.
  • Fresh Air Ventilators: Fresh air is one of the best ways to improve indoor air quality. Mechanical ventilators attach to your air distribution system and introduce a controlled amount of outdoor air into the home or business. As outdoor air is drawn into the ductwork, an equal amount of 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 can make it to the

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. Additionally, dirty ducts negatively impact indoor air quality because dust, mold spores, and other harmful air pollutants can be picked up and carried into the air you breathe when the system is operating.

To combat these IAQ problems, TemperaturePro of Northeast Atlanta offers duct cleaning and duct sealing services. Sealing your ductwork and cleaning the harmful pollutants from the ducts will improve your indoor air and reduce your monthly costs on your energy bills. Choose these two services with TemperaturePro of Northeast Atlanta for cleaner air at an affordable cost.
