Indoor Air Quality and You

Indoor Air QualityAs a professional heating and cooling service repair and installation company, we know that your first priority is to have a home environment that keeps your home warm in the winter months and cool during the hottest days of summer. Yet most homeowners overlook the quality of air in their home. This is more than about breathing clean air, but it can also affect your budget in a number of ways.

Indoor air quality or IAQ, is a way to measure the quality of your indoor air that directly affects both your health and the cost of keeping your home at an ideal temperature throughout the year. You will likely save money on repair costs if you have an IAQ assessment done on an annual basis. Plus, with our wide variety of IAQ products and services like leak sealing, humidifiers, and air purifiers, we can help you improve the quality of the air you breathe and experience greater comfort in your home.

Consider an IAQ Assessment

An indoor air quality assessment is a great first start! We will send a service technician to your home to conduct an IAQ assessment to allow us to identify any areas of improvement, and to best recommend services to meet your needs. There are several things we will measure during the test like humidity levels and ventilation, as well as looking at potentially leaking seals, and asking members of your home about their air quality experience and needs. Once we have a good idea of your indoor air environment, we’ll provide you with a list of recommendations on how you can improve your air quality and potentially reduce your home heating and cooling costs. It’s a easy as that.

Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Carrier PurifierOnce we have a comprehensive picture of your indoor air quality, the next step is for the service technician to make recommendations on how to improve your IAQ, and for you to ask any questions you may have about the service and/or product recommendations.
In some cases, we may provide you with a list of service recommendations immediately. At other times, we will consult with other members of our service team to make a recommendation on the best solution for you and the specific needs of your household.

Some potential IAQ solutions are:
  • Adding a humidifier/dehumidifier to the home
  • Adding additional air filters to scrub the air clean of smaller particles circulating throughout your home
  • Recommending sealing leaks from windows and doors that lower the indoor air quality
  • Installing a whole home air purification system
