If you think that you need only cool your home effectively with a reliable air conditioner in order to enjoy great comfort this summer season, you are overlooking a major facet of the situation: your indoor air quality. If the air quality within your home is low, there is no way that you are going to be able to live as comfortably as you’d like. You may not even be able to live healthfully.
The bad news is that there is really no way to eliminate all of the factors that may negatively influence your indoor air quality. The good news is that we can help you to improve your indoor air quality in spite of those factors. Call today to discuss your options.
Proximity to Major Roadways/Wooded Areas
If you live near a major roadway or a wooded area, it is likely that these environmental conditions are going to negatively influence your indoor air quality to some degree. You may have higher than average concentrations of natural allergens, and dust and dirt kicked up by passing traffic can definitely lower your air quality. Using a good air filtration system, or an electronic air purifier, can help you to mitigate the problem.
Running Your Air Conditioner
That’s right, cooling your home with your whole-house air conditioner can actually put your air quality in jeopardy. This is especially true if you’ve really sealed up your home in order to boost energy efficiency. The air in your home may get very dry, but a professionally installed humidifier can resolve the issue.
Pets and Smokers
Cigarette smoke and pet dander can pose real problems to the quality of the air in one’s home. You may need a specific type of air purifier that deals with gases if you are sick of lingering smoke odors and residue. UV germicidal lights can destroy biological pollutants introduced to the air by your furry friends.
