The fact of the matter is that your indoor air quality may very well be more impure than the air you breathe outside. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has included Indoor Air Quality as one of the most urgent environmental hazards that we are confronted with. Some of these contaminants can arise from common household items such as fumes and odors from appliances and cleaning products. Others are due to a build-up of several small pollutants like hair shed, moisture, and skin cells. As minor as they might seem, a combination of these factors can lead to extremely unsafe conditions in your home, creating mold and allergens (amongst other problems).
You have the options available to efficiently eliminate a majority of the contaminants from the air circulating in your home or business. If you are doubtful about the quality of your air, call us up at Air Solutions!
Air Solutions extends their services and provides the essential tools you need to sustain a healthy environment. By allowing our qualified technicians to maintain your air filtration systems routinely, you are actually aiding your own health and enhancing the durability of your air conditioner and heater. We can significantly decrease the air pollutants in your atmosphere by cleaning, repairing and replacing your air ducts, air filters and coil as needed or desired. If the mentioned components are in need of service, your air systems will not perform smoothly as it should. In turn, it will have to work much harder to operate which will inconveniently raise your energy bills and possibly cause damage internally.
We won't just install an overpriced air filter that won't get the job done and leave you unsatisfied. The Air Solutions team will engage in a comprehensive inspection of your HVAC system to identify the solution that best adapts to your environment. By taking the necessary steps to clear the air of pollutants, you will be able to breathe better and boost your health.
Sadly, not all air filtration systems are created equal. Your HVAC system will require its own custom arrangement, and Air Solutions is here to help you with that. Another service that we offer is installation of UV lights within your air ducts to wipe out those troublesome biological pollutants (toxic agents that flow through the air and are too small to be seen which can include, but are not limited to, bacteria and viruses).
Bad air quality can cause more allergens and mold to move throughout your home, but other side effects can include the following:
Itchy or watery eyes
More severe allergy or asthma symptoms
While some of these reactions may seem small, they can lead to more severe respiratory illnesses.
Now that the bad news is out of the way, let’s move on to the good news. As bad as these problems may sound, you can remove most of these contaminants from circulating throughout your home. Professional duct cleaners use special blowers, vacuums, and brushes to clean out the entire system, and doing this on a regular basis can improve the air quality of your home. However, you need to be wary of any duct cleaning scams that try to convince you that your ducts need to be cleaned when they really don’t.
While indoor air quality is a growing concern for many people, your ducts don’t need to be cleaned unless they’re really dirty. And the EPA recommends that you only clean your ducts if they have become contaminated.
Renovation – If your home has been recently remodeled, your air ducts might have been contaminated with asbestos, lead paint, or dust.
Animals – If you think that there’s an infestation in your home, get them removed, and clean both your ducts and your HVAC unit so no contaminants circulate through the air.
Mold – If there’s visible mold inside your air ducts, they need to be cleaned.
Contaminants – If various contaminants (such as debris, pet hair, and odors) are being blown throughout the house, the ducts need to be cleaned.
Illness – If you or your family members are getting unexplained allergy-related illnesses and you’ve done everything to decontaminate your home, you should consider getting your air ducts cleaned.
If you take the necessary steps to remove pollutants from your HVAC system and duct work, you’ll be able to breathe better and improve your health.
