Indoor Air Quality Products and Services in Sun City West, AZ and Surrounding Areas
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns us that indoor air is anywhere from two to 100 times as polluted as outdoor air. When you consider that the majority of people spend the majority of their time indoors, that’s an alarming fact.
The indoor air quality (IAQ) of your home or business can negatively affect your health and the health of others. Dust, pollen, pet dander, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are just a few of the invisible dangers that lurk in the air. The very young, the elderly, and those with chronic conditions like asthma are some of the most severely affected.
Signs of Poor IAQ
You can’t see the pollutants in your indoor air, but you may be able to feel them. Short-term side effects of exposure to poor IAQ include fatigue, headache, chronic illness, and respiratory problems. The long-term side effects of poor IAQ exposure are less understood, but they may include some types of cancer, respiratory conditions, and cardiovascular disease.
HVAC Air Cleaners
Fortunately, the technicians at Canyon State Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing have solutions to the problem of poor IAQ. Follow these tips, and you’ll soon be breathing easier thanks to HVAC technology.
- Invest in a portable or whole-home air purifier. An Canyon State Air Conditioning technician can help you determine the right size for your home as well as what features would be best for you. We’ll make sure you get a purifier with the right air change per hour (ACH) rate for your needs.
- Ask your HVAC specialist to install an air humidifier. The ideal relative humidity (RH) varies depending on the outdoor temperature, but it should never exceed 50 percent. A humidifier can balance the moisture in your indoor air so viruses, dust mites, and other irritants are kept at bay.
- Consider using a mechanical ventilator to freshen up your indoor air. Mechanical HVAC ventilation can help purge your home of stagnant air and draw fresh air in from outside. A Canyon State Air Conditioning technician can provide more information, recommend a ventilation product, and install it upon your request.
Like all other HVAC equipment, you’ll need to treat your IAQ-targeted machinery with regular maintenance for best results. For example, air purifier filters should be changed regularly, humidifiers should be cleaned weekly, and mechanical ventilation systems should be routinely inspected.
