Air quality in homes has become more important to people than ever. You’ve probably wondered if your air quality is as good as it could be, and what to do if it’s not.
We have a bit of bad news: it’s likely that your home’s indoor air quality is poor. This isn’t because you’ve done something wrong. Modern homes don’t allow for much fresh air circulation, allowing numerous contaminants to build up indoors without an easy escape. The number of sources for indoor contaminants has also increased, leading to more volatile organic compounds (VOCs) floating around the air than ever before.
But we have good news as well: we offer the indoor air quality services in New Braunfels, TX that can significantly improve your home’s IAQ, and the fall is a great time to get started with them. That way you’ll be ready for the colder days of winter when your house will be sealed off more to the outside.
Let’s look at how we can help you and your family to enjoy healthier, more pleasant household air.
Install an air filtration system
This is the best way to get started with indoor air quality improvements. A whole-house air filtration system removes the majority of larger contaminants that can circulate through your house, such as dust, lint, dander, and pollen. The standard air filter on your HVAC system doesn’t offer this level of protection—in fact, it isn’t even designed to improve IAQ. Our technicians can find the right strength filters to match your home’s needs without interfering with the heating and cooling system.
Install air purifiers
Air purifiers work well in conjunction with air filters because they can trap the particles that may make it through a filter and they also make the filter’s job easier. There are several different types of air filters available, such as ionizers and UV germicidal lights, and we’ll see that you have the correct type to clean your air and help your filters.
Balance indoor humidity
Air that’s too dry or too humid can ruin your comfort as well as affect the health of the people in your home. We install both whole-house dehumidifiers and humidifiers, so we can help you to always strike the perfect balanced indoor humidity.
Repair your ductwork
A key part of indoor air quality is good air circulation and ventilation in the house. Your home’s ductwork is an essential part of this process, and if the ducts sustain damage and start to leak, it will cause numerous problems—and not just to indoor air quality.
Leaks in ducts will create humidity imbalances, stale air, and allow dust and other particles to enter the ventilation system and get blown into your living spaces. Our technicians can locate all the leaks in the ductwork and seal them up, restoring proper air circulation and eliminating multiple problems at once. If you suspect leaky ductwork, arrange with us for duct testing and we’ll see what repairs will fix the trouble.
