Indoor Air Quality Services
Your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) is important to your family’s health.
Because we keep our homes closed up most of the year, our home’s air quality can be questionable. If you’re wondering about yours, SmithCo Mechanical Heating & Cooling offers IAQ checks for your home as an add-on to our semi-annual maintenance service or as a stand-alone offering.
Why Is Indoor Air Quality a Concern?
As homes become more energy efficient, there is less fresh air in our homes because they’re sealed tight. Anytime we make a home improvement, like painting, new flooring, or even new furniture, we’re negatively impacting our home’s air quality. Damage like a roof leak or burst pipe can lead to mold or mildew growth. All of these things can cause health issues and trigger asthma or allergic reactions. One way to help your family stay healthy and avoid big health issues is to have clean air in your home.
How Can You Improve IAQ?
There are a few ways to keep your home’s air quality high. One is to change your filters regularly. This will help avoid dust and buildup in your vents. A second way is to have your vents cleaned every few years (more often if you have pets). Perhaps the most important way to keep your air quality high is to have regular maintenance performed on your HVAC system. Few people realize that the ‘V’ in the acronym stands for ventilator. Regular maintenance keeps it working properly and circulating your home’s air.
