Indoor AIr Quality

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality refers to the quality of the air in a home, school, office, or other building environment.
According to the EPA, Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations. This is why in addition to routine HVAC maintenance like changing your filters consistently, we offer additional options to improve the indoor air quality in your home.

Indoor Air Quality Q&A

Indoor air quality refers to the quality of the air in a home, school, office, or other building environment.
According to the EPA, Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations.

​These pollutants can include:

  • Fuel-burning combustion appliances
  • Tobacco products
  • Building materials and furnishings as diverse as:
    • Deteriorated asbestos-containing insulation
    • Newly installed flooring, upholstery, or carpet
    • Cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products
  • Products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies
  • Poor performing central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices
  • Excess moisture
  • Outdoor sources such as:
    • Radon
    • Pesticides
    • Outdoor air pollution

Individuals with pre-existing conditions may have a harder time with poor indoor air quality conditions but even a healthy individual may experience symptoms like increased allergies after being continually exposed to poor indoor air conditions.

Symptoms could include:

  • Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.
  • Headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
  • Respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer.
  1. Change your air filters regularly. Around every 90 days you should replace your air filter to help maintain good air flow and keep particles and allergens out of the air you breathe. If you have multiple pets in the home or your air conditioning unit is working harder, like in the summer, you may want to replace your filter sooner than 90 days.
  2. Schedule an antimicrobial fogging with duct cleaning service. This kills microbes and mildew that may be growing in the air ducts. After fogging it is recommended to have your ducts cleaned to remove the debris which prevents regrowth.
  3. Invest in advanced media filters or Air Scrubbing Technology like the Aerus Air Scrubber: These options are designed to filter and kill bacteria, viruses, germs, odors and more as air is pulled through the unit, releasing clean air into your home. 

A licensed HVAC company will be able to go over all the indoor air quality improvement options available and see which one will best suite your family’s budget and needs.

  • Antimicrobial Fogging

    After an air duct inspection, your Certified HVAC Technician might recommend an antimicrobial air duct fogging if they discover a presence of microbes and mildew growing in the air ducts. A build up of microbes throughout your ductwork will result in poor air quality and possible health effects to your family over time. Antimicrobial fogging is generally done along side an air duct cleaning service. The fogging kills microbes and sterilizes the air duct system and then the duct cleaning removes any remaining particles. You might need antimicrobial fogging if: Mildew is visible on HVAC registers or ducts Your home or office smells damp/musty You or your family members are constantly sick or fighting allergies.

  • Air Duct Cleaning

    The air ducts in your home serve an important role in the functionality of your HVAC system. After time, air ducts can become clogged with dust and debris which causes the efficiency of your HVAC unit to decline, shortening your HVAC system’s life, increasing your monthly energy bills and impacting your indoor air quality. The air duct cleaning experts at Country Air can inspect your HVAC system’s air ducts to see whether or not a cleaning is recommended. We can also detect and clean out other problems with your ductwork like the presence of microbes often caused by too much humidity.
