The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that indoor air often contains substantially more pollutants than the air outside*. When you consider that most Americans spend up to 90% of their time indoors, it’s readily apparent why you need to pay attention to your indoor air quality in Aurora, Bolingbrook, Carol Stream, Elgin, Elmhurst, Naperville, Oak Lawn, Orland Park, Schaumburg, Wheaton, IL, and the surrounding areas.
What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?
Pollutants stem from many sources. Some of them are awfully familiar, such as dry-cleaning, pet dander, harsh cleaning products, or tobacco smoke. Others are more subtle, such as perfumes, air fresheners, or scented candles. Still others are elusive, such as organic growth lurking on an HVAC coil, or the pollen carried into your home on your shoes or by pets.
We can help you pinpoint potential sources of contaminants in your home. Once we’ve identified the cause, we’ll explain your options and help you create a plan to ensure that you and your family breathe more comfortably all year long.
Protect Your Home’s Air Quality
- IAQ Products: We carry and install air scrubber, air cleaner, and UV light air purifier devices that filter, remove, or destroy airborne pollutants. Mechanical ventilators help improve airflow and create a healthy exchange of indoor and outdoor air.
- HVAC Maintenance: Regular maintenance reduces the chance of organic growth from an overflowing condensate pan and protects against carbon monoxide stemming from a defective furnace.
- Humidity Control: When it comes to indoor humidity, both high and low levels of humidity can affect your family’s comfort and health.
Don’t Ignore Your IAQ
Each day, we encounter a variety of air quality risks. We can’t avoid some of these risks, but poor indoor air quality is a health risk that we can proactively control. IAQ problems can lead to a range of problems. Headaches, allergy and asthma attacks, fatigue, and dizziness are among the immediate effects your family might experience.
A number of potential long-term effects have been associated with chronic exposure to indoor air pollution**. Given the possible consequences, you can’t afford to ignore the quality of your indoor air.
