Indoor Air Quality Services & Products for Winter Haven & Surrounding Areas
Airborne contaminants can originate from a variety of sources in your home. You might find yourself constantly dealing with objectionable odors with no easily identifiable origin. You might also find the need to invest in more air fresheners than you’d like. Many of these air fresheners can also contribute to your IAQ problems. They emit harmful chemicals called volatile organic compounds. These VOCs can also come from new carpets, furniture and items regularly used in the home such as aerosol sprays and paint.
Cooking, cleaning and other activities can affect the quality of your indoor air. Pollutants can also enter your home from outdoors. Indoor air quality problems manifest themselves in other ways including:
- Excessive dust
- High humidity in the warm months
- Low humidity or dry air in the winter months
- Gases and carbon monoxide from heating systems and other equipment
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air can be up to more than 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. Identifying the sources of IAQ threats and finding effective solutions can seem like an overwhelming task. However, you should never ignore or underestimate indoor air quality problems. Many symptoms don’t show their effects until much later, after continuous exposure.
Poor IAQ Affects Your Health and HVAC System
Poor indoor air quality affects your HVAC system when debris coats components and affects the efficient movement of various parts. As your heating and cooling systems work harder, energy consumption increases. Additionally, pollutants that accumulate within the system end up circulating in your indoor air.
Indoor air contaminants can cause allergies and other health problems. Poor indoor air quality is especially harmful to those with respiratory conditions and other illnesses. It is important that you evaluate your home to determine IAQ threats and identify their sources. Measures such as investing in air cleaners and sealing air leaks can have you breathing clean, pure air in no time.
