Posted on: August 21, 2020

Your home’s indoor air quality is an essential part of supporting your family’s overall health and wellness. Studies by the EPA show that some indoor air is littered with pollutants, sometimes 2-5 times more than outdoor air. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to health problems like allergies, coughs, sinus problems, chronic headaches or migraines, and the transmission of illness. Improving and maintaining your home’s indoor air quality is a complex process with no “one size fits all” solution, but you don’t have to navigate the issue alone. The professionals at Aladdin Air Conditioning & Heating have decades of experience and offer a full range of indoor air quality services.

What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?

The pollutants that negatively impact indoor air quality can be introduced by open doors and windows, maintenance and housekeeping activities within your home, pest control services, or products like engineered wood, new furniture or finishes, and sometimes can emanate directly from your HVAC system. These contaminants, which could negatively impact your family’s health, include gases like carbon monoxide, odors from organic and inorganic chemicals, mold, bacteria, microscopic particulates, and more.

How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality issues tend to be complicated and require more than one solution. That’s why Aladdin AC offers a variety of products and services to suit your home’s unique needs. If you are concerned about the quality of the air in your home, your Aladdin AC technician can perform a full air quality analysis and suggest a plan that includes several available solutions:

Whole-House Dehumidifiers

A whole-house dehumidifier improves indoor air quality by removing unwanted moisture from the air. Reducing the indoor humidity prevents bacteria, mold, and mildew development, eliminates musty odors, and reduces health problems like allergies, chronic headaches, and a generally uncomfortable damp feeling in your home.

Whole-House Humidifiers

If the air in your home is too dry, installing a whole-house humidifier brings the humidity levels to a more comfortable level. Increased humidity helps with dry skin, nasal passage dryness, coughs, and headaches, and it helps to prevent the spread of illness. It can also help improve the comfort level in your home and reduce the need for heating or cooling, depending on the season.

Air Cleaners

Newer homes are insulated and sealed well for improved energy efficiency, but there’s an unfortunate downside to having an exceptionally well-sealed house. All of the chemicals, allergens, gases, and dirty air tend to become trapped indoors. Air cleaners help clean the air that is confined in your home by running it through a system that uses filters to remove the impurities.

Air Filters

The pollutants that reduce your indoor air quality are also present throughout your HVAC system. A high-quality air filter can remove these particles from your home, increasing the overall air quality in your home and improving your family’s health and wellness. There are a wide range of available filter options, and your Aladdin AC HVAC tech can help you choose the most effective option for your needs.

Air Purifiers with UV Light Technology

Another approach to improving indoor air quality is adding air purifiers with UV light to clean the air moving through the vents in your home. As air travels through your HVAC system, the purifier traps pollutants and a UV light destroys microbes like bacteria, viruses, and mold spores. This can result in reduced asthma and allergy symptoms ad increased overall health.
