People with asthma, allergies and other respiratory problems know all too well when the quality of the air in their home isn’t good. Others not afflicted with these issues may not be as aware of the air quality around them, but they can still suffer ill effects when it’s poor. The experts at Air Kare Air Conditioning and Heating can help you keep your family safe and healthy with the indoor air quality products that we carry and install.
Issues Stemming from Poor Indoor Air Quality
The presence of dirt, dust, pollen and other allergens alone is enough to cause many of us to experience many unpleasant symptoms. Coughing, sneezing, congestion, headaches and even difficulty breathing are some of the most common symptoms experienced. To make the situation even worse, these irritations to your sinuses can lead to infections. Anyone who has had a sinus infection can tell you just how miserable it feels.
While the cleanliness of the air in your home is certainly important, it’s not the only issue to consider when evaluating your indoor air quality. Another important aspect to think about is its freshness. Not only can old, stagnant air begin to smell musty or stale, it can also harbor unwanted microscopic organisms that impact healthy IAQ.
The humidity level in your house also contributes to the quality of the air. Air that’s too dry can cause irritation of the skin or eyes and even nosebleeds. It can also be responsible for the build-up of annoying static electricity. Air that’s too humid can lead to microbial growth, which can damage your home and impact your health.
We carry and install an assortment of IAQ products, including electronic air cleaners, ion generation devices and dehumidifiers. We also perform safety inspections to make sure your home is a healthy space to live in.
