Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Overview

TemperaturePro indoor air qualityDid you know that the quality of the air that you breathe inside your home has a major impact on your health? Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of indoor air as it pertains to your health and comfort. A large percentage of homeowners often neglect this important aspect of indoor living, causing either subtle or noticeable negative health effects. Business owners should also protect themselves and their employees by ensuring high quality air indoors. In fact, indoor air quality should be everyone’s concern. Studies have shown that we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, which means we may be putting ourselves in danger if the air quality is poor. Additionally, people with allergies or asthma depend on high-quality air to live comfortably. An investment in your indoor air quality is an investment in your health.

Indoor Air Quality Problems

Indoor air quality problems develop over time if efforts are not made to protect and improve the quality of the air. The severity of indoor air quality issues depends on a large number of factors, including location, season, lifestyle, activities, condition of HVAC equipment, and presence of building components and furnishings. Any of these issues can create IAQ problems or perpetuate existing ones, ultimately impacting your health in a negative way.

There are many examples of factors that influence indoor air quality. Pollen can be a major concern for many areas during the spring and poses a big threat to individuals who suffer from allergies. When a homeowner smokes indoors, the quality of the air in the home suffers immensely. The condition of the HVAC equipment is an important factor in determining a building’s indoor air quality. Leaky or dirty ductwork can compromise indoor air quality. Finally, building components and furnishings are elusive contributors to poor indoor air quality due to fact that they release volatile organic compounds, which are dangerous to your health when inhaled.

Indoor Air Quality Solutions

There is a great need for a smart, effective solution to resolving poor indoor air quality issues in your home or business. TemperaturePro® offers indoor air quality services that address even the most complex indoor air quality issues. The following list of products are among the best in the industry for improving indoor air quality in your home or business:

  • Air Purifiers: Air purifiers pull contaminants from the air. Air purifiers and air cleaners filter the air in your home, reducing and potentially eliminating the amount of pollutants that you breathe in. Purifiers proactively improve indoor air quality.

  • Humidifiers: Humidity affects indoor air quality. When there is too much humidity, mold and mildew can grow. When there isn’t enough humidity, more air pollutants remain suspended in the air rather than settling on the floor, ultimately being inhaled by the building’s inhabitants. Good humidity levels also help to improve dry skin conditions and prevent wood furniture from cracking.

  • Fresh Air Ventilators: One of the best ways to improve indoor air quality is by introducing fresh outdoor air into the home. Mechanical ventilators attach to your ductwork and draw in a controlled amount of outdoor air into your home or business. As outdoor air is pulled into the ductwork, stale indoor air is removed from the living area. Revitalizing your home with fresh air can make a huge difference in your home’s or business’s indoor air quality.

  • UV Lamps: Harmful bacteria exist in the air we breathe every day, and the harmful bacteria pose a threat to your family’s health. To reduce the risk of spreading illness in your home or business, UV lamps can be installed in your system’s ductwork. These lights will zap harmful bacteria with ultraviolet light and destroy them before they can infiltrate your living space.
