Assessing Your Air Quality
The quality of the air we breathe is essential for health and well-being, as well as heating and air conditioning system performance and energy efficiency. However, the air quality in many homes and commercial businesses is more polluted than the air outside. According to the EPA, indoor air quality can be up to five times worse indoors.
Common indoor air pollutants include:
- Pet dander
- Carbon monoxide
- Household chemicals
- Mold and mildew
- Volatile organic compounds
Signs of poor indoor air quality may include physical symptoms, especially in people with asthma, allergies, or respiratory ailments. Poor air quality can cause headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and irritation of the eyes and throat. In the long term, poor air quality can contribute to serious health problems, such as respiratory disease and heart disease.

Poor air quality can have many causes, and there is no one solution that will solve every problem. You can take steps to improve your air quality, such as scheduling regular HVAC maintenance, cleaning the house thoroughly, changing your air filters, and airing out the house regularly. While these steps can help to a certain extent, they are not enough to significantly remove pollutants from the air.
Air quality can be improved with:
- Air cleaners: Different types of air cleaners are available to remove contaminants, such as pet odors, smoke, pollen, dust, and other allergens.
- Humidifiers: The humidity level has a big impact on indoor comfort. A whole-house humidifier can help improve humidity levels for improved comfort and healthier air.
- UV germicidal lights: If you are concerned about microorganisms or the spread of illness, UV germicidal lights can neutralize viruses, bacteria, and mold spores to get rid of germs.
The right equipment for your home will depend on the condition of your air quality and specific contaminants that are causing the greatest concern. A qualified HVAC technician can assess your needs and help you compare equipment to find the best solution for your home.
