Indoor Air Quality Service
Breathe Easy with IAQ Products
Your California home is a haven from the elements, but did you know that some indoor pollutant levels are two to five times—and up to 100 times—higher than outdoor levels? That means the air inside your home or place of business is adversely impacted by secondhand smoke, cleaning chemicals, radon, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pesticides, mold, formaldehyde, and off-gassing from building materials.
Symptoms of Poor Indoor Air Quality
According to the American Lung Association, “Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections, lung cancer, and chronic diseases such as asthma.” Controlling indoor contaminants, allergens, and bacteria can improve overall health and protect occupants compromised by lung disease, immune disorders, asthma, or allergies. If you have an infant or elderly family member at home, it is also wise to reduce your risk of indoor pollutants.
Not everyone is sensitive to indoor contaminants, but they may develop sensitivity with continued exposure. Termed “sick building syndrome”—when pollutants cause acute health effects—poor indoor air quality may present with one or more of the following symptoms:
- Dry, irritated or itchy eyes
- Sinus congestion or runny nose
- Shortness of breath
- Frequent colds & illness
In addition to irritating the sinuses and lungs, indoor air pollution decreases the efficiency of your HVAC system. As pet dander, dust, and particulates clog filters and build up in duct systems, heating and air conditioning performance suffers. Indoor air quality services address these issues and improve the functionality and longevity of your HVAC equipment. IAQ products and services include:
- UV germicidal purification systems
- UV light disinfection systems
- Whole-house air cleaners
- Whole-house humidifiers
- CO2 testing
- HVAC performance testing
