What is Indoor Air Quality?
Indoor air quality refers to the air quality/condition inside a building or structure as it relates to the health, safety, and comfort of occupants. When you understand the harm that common pollutants can cause inside your home, you can take specific steps to improve your air quality long-term.
Why is Indoor Air Quality Important?
When the indoor air quality is unsafe, it can affect occupants negatively. People with underlying ailments and respiratory conditions, like asthma, can be the most affected by poor air quality. Due to prolonged exposure, even relatively healthy individuals can be adversely affected by pollutants in the air. Some people may not experience immediate problems. In fact, long-term exposure to poor indoor air quality can manifest years later.
Negative Short-Term Effects of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Immediate and short-term effects of poor indoor air quality can depend on age and pre-existing conditions. In many cases, the person’s adverse reaction can also vary based on their level of sensitivity. Some people may experience symptoms that mimic a cold or viral infection as a result of airborne pollutants.
Long-Term Risks of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Long-term and repeated exposure to harmful pollutants in the air may not show up for years. However, that depends on the person. Improving indoor air quality won’t cure serious health conditions like cancer or heart disease, but it can reduce the symptoms and severity of pre-existing conditions.
Destruction of Your HVAC System
Did you know that indoor air quality not only has adverse effects on your health but can also destroy your HVAC system? While you can’t always visually tell if you have poor indoor air quality, the operation of your heating and cooling system can help diagnose it. Debris and dust in dirty air filters and ductwork can cause your HVAC system to work inefficiently and increase energy costs. Additionally, summer humidity can produce moisture, allowing mold and mildew to thrive and make it difficult for your AC to cool appropriately.

Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Various things can cause poor indoor air quality, none of which are suitable for your HVAC system. Whether you have inadequate ventilation or airborne pollutants, it’s crucial to have a professional provide indoor air quality testing as soon as possible.
Let’s face it; air contaminants are everywhere. However, they affect everyone differently. Some people have severe and life-threatening reactions when exposed to indoor pollutants, while others experience no issues. When it comes to indoor air quality, many of the pollutants you’ll find include pet dander, dust, pollen, tobacco smoke, excessive moisture, and more. Air filters are designed to catch these impurities but become insufficient with months (even years) of contaminant buildup.
Your health is at greater risk of poor indoor air quality when too much outdoor air seeps inside your home or office space. Unless your commercial building has a special ventilation system intended to minimize outdoor air contamination, you may have high toxin and pollutant levels inside. Our AC and heating company performs exceptional indoor air quality testing so that you have all the answers to create a plan of action.
How Outdoor Air Enters Your Home
Outdoor air enters indoor space in three ways: mechanical ventilation, infiltration, and natural ventilation.
Mechanical ventilation methods typically include outdoor-vented fans that remove air from a particular room, such as a laundry room, kitchen, or bathroom. Or, you can have an air handling system that uses ducts and fans to remove indoor air from one space to another room inside your home.
Outdoor air finds its way inside your home via seals, cracks, joints, openings, ceilings, and floors. When there is minimal infiltration in your home or commercial space, this can cause the air exchange rate to be lower and air impurity levels to increase.
Natural ventilation is when air moves naturally through windows and doors. Air movement, in this case, is caused by different indoor and outdoor temperatures.
Our technicians can install a whole-house air treatment center to clean, disinfect, and deodorize the air in your home 24 hours a day—naturally and without chemicals.
