The Importance of Properly Balancing Humidity
Another key aspect of restoring air quality to a house is making sure that the humidity in the air is balanced. Depending on the season, the amount of moisture may increase or decrease. During the summer, humidity tends to increase, whereas it drops dramatically during the winter. Too much humidity leads to moist environments that breed bacteria and mold. They also make air conditioners work less effectively. However, too little humidity causes dry eyes and itchy skin. These conditions also kick up a lot of dust and pollen, which float through the air and make it harder to breathe.
To control the amount of humidity for greater comfort and ease of living, homeowners can select from a range of products. Humidifiers can come as central systems or smaller, individual units, ranging from impellers to steam vaporizers. Dehumidifiers may come as whole-home systems but can also be refrigerant or desiccant-operated. To find out which system is best for your home, speak to our knowledgeable techs.
Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Just because contaminants can’t be seen does not mean they are absent. It is important to have professionals test the air quality of a home as soon as residents begin to experience unpleasant symptoms.
Some of the indicators that an air quality inspection is needed include:
- Continual sneezing or coughing
- Increased allergic reactions, hives, or rashes
- Irritated eyes, nose, mouth, and skin
- Stuffy nose and congested sinuses
- Nausea and dizziness
- Migraines and headaches
- Continual insomnia
- Places in the house that are oddly hot or warm
- Bad odors like mustiness or mildew
- HVAC systems that are expiring more quickly than they should
Types of Air Purifiers
Since the pollutants inside a house are so varied, a single air purifier is not necessarily going to be the best option for getting rid of them all. Consulting with our knowledgeable professionals can help homeowners determine what kind of air purification system would be most optimal.
Common types of air purification systems include:
- UV air purifiers
- Activated carbon air purifiers
- Central air cleaners
- Air to air exchange systems
- Ionization air purifiers
- HEPA filtration systems
With our high-quality products, homeowners can feel assured that they are breathing more safely.
