Protecting Indoor Air Quality

Very few homeowners are going to ignore the need for keeping temperatures in their homes at comfortable levels. You aren’t going to overlook the need for an effective heater when it is freezing cold outside, right? Of course not. That need is obvious. Not all needs are quite as obvious, though, even if they are equally important. Take, for instance, the need for great indoor air quality in one’s home. Make IAQ services part of your ongoing HVAC services in Loveland.

The problem with indoor air quality is that there are just so many different ways in which it may suffer. Fortunately for you, the IAQ professionals on our team are here to ensure that, no matter what is wrong with your indoor air quality, you’ll have the right solutions in place. Reach out to us today with any concerns that you have surrounding the quality of the air that you breathe in your home. We’ll outfit your home with the systems and services that it needs.

Humidity Issues

Humidity is a tough nut to crack. Too little humidity in your home is certainly not desirable and can have a number of unpleasant consequences. These can include dry, itchy skin, nosebleeds, increased instances of illness, and more. However, too much humidity is not great, either. If the air in your home is too humid, then you may run into musty odors, issues with warping wooden floorboards, wood rot, and even the promotion of mold growth.

Now, we’re sure that some of you have some amount of experience with portable humidifier and dehumidifier units. However, if you are serious about optimizing humidity in your home, these are not what you should choose! You want whole-house solutions to your humidity problems, and that means that you want a whole-house humidifier and/or dehumidifier installed in your residence. And that means hiring a professional like ours to do the job right.

Airborne Pollutants

Perhaps the most common issue that homeowners encounter with their indoor air quality is that of airborne pollutants. Think about dust, dirt, pet dander, pollen, and other debris that can get into the air in your home. Now, think about breathing all of those pollutants into your lungs! But hey, what can you do about it, right? It’s not like you’re going to ditch Fido just because he sheds.

Well, no, we’re certainly not advocating for that—no more than we’d suggest that there’s any way in which to completely eliminate the risk of airborne pollutants making their way into your home. However, you can remove those pollutants from the air that you breathe quite effectively with the right equipment in place. Whole-house air filtration systems, for example, or more advanced air cleaning systems, may be used to clean the air that fills your home.

Biological Pollutants

We know this one sounds scary. And we are not alarmists. However, it has to be said. Biological pollutants in your home pose a health threat. And we can help.

With UV germicidal lights, you can destroy biological pollutants like viruses, mold spores, and bacteria that are putting your health at risk. Call today to learn more.
