Air Purification Systems in Humble, TX and Surrounding Areas
Did you know your AC does more than heat or cool your air? Air conditioners perform filtering and dehumidifying duties for your air, too! Indoor air quality, or IAQ, can greatly affect the comfort of your home as well as the health of the home. That’s why Elite Comfort Services offers a wide range of air quality solutions to keep your air as healthy and clean as it can be for your family. When you choose Elite Comfort Services to help regulate your IAQ, you can breathe deeper knowing that your air quality is in top condition.
What is Indoor Air Quality?
Indoor air quality is the quality of the air within and around a building or structure. IAQ is particularly important inside your home because it’s where you and your family spend a lot of your time. We know that our society monitors the air quality outside because we know how important it is to breathe clean air into our lungs. That same pollution and contamination can get bottled up in your home as well, so it’s important to actively work to keep the air in your home fresh and clean.
Consequences of Poor Air Quality
Poor IAQ can have many short-term and long-term effects on you, your family and even your pets. Short-term reactions to poor IAQ can include irritation of the air passages like your eyes, nose and throat; headaches; dizziness and fatigue. If you are experiencing allergies that tend to flare up when you are indoors, poor IAQ could be the cause. Long-term exposure to allergens or contaminants can result in the irritation or development of respiratory diseases such as asthma, heart disease and even cancer.
Threats to Indoor Air Quality
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) there are several common indoor air pollutants that affect your home’s air quality, including:
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
- Environmental smoke
- Particulate matter
- Carbon monoxide
- Outdoor pollutants
In Humble, the high humidity levels make our homes prime candidates for mold growth to occur. You want to make sure you can recognize when things like mold are present in your home so that they can be taken care of quickly and safely. You may not be able to see pollutants in your home’s air, but you can look for indicators of poor IAQ. Monitor yourself and other members of the household for the physical symptoms listed above, including irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. In addition, keep an eye out for:
- Dust buildup, especially around air vents
- Hot or cold spots around the house
- Unpleasant odors
- Low airflow from vents
