Could indoor air quality (IAQ) in Houston, TX actually be worse than outdoors?
Breathe Fresher, Cleaner Air
Did you know that the air inside your home can be up to 8 or 10 times more polluted than the air outside? Your indoor air can carry allergens, bacteria, mold, viruses, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), pet dander, chemicals, and other harmful contaminants that with consistent exposure can cause serious health effects. Long-term exposure can cause headaches, dizziness, eye irritation, or in more serious situations respiratory disease, heart disease, and even cancer. Never before has clean air been more important than now, and Northwind AC and Heating have a solution to meet your Indoor Air Quality needs. We offer whole-home indoor air quality solutions that filter and clean the air in every room of your home to remove those irritants that can be harmful to you and your family.
How do you keep your family safe by improving your Indoor Air Quality?
Change Your HVAC Filter Regularly
The first line of defense is your HVAC system’s filter for improving IAQ. This filter helps trap dust, pollen, pet dander, mold, allergens, viruses, and bacteria and keeps them from recirculating in your home. These filters are rated, a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating, which measures how effective each filter works. The higher the rating, the more efficient the filter. We recommend that changing your HVAC system filter is a part of your HVAC maintenance routine.
HVAC Duct Cleaning Benefits
We have already learned that EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) research states that indoor air pollution can be 8-10 times higher than outdoor air. This means that the uncirculated-stale air inside your home can be more harmful than the air outdoors. HVAC ductwork can be a larger contributor to pollutants in the air inside your home. Excessive dust and debris, pet/rodent infestations, mold, and mildew can accumulate and restrict airflow within your HVAC system.
Factors such as pets, cigarette/cigar smoke, recent home renovations, or a family member with respiratory issues are good reasons to consider scheduling a ductwork appointment with Northwind AC and Heating. Our state-of-the-art technology with a brush and HEPA vacuum provides safe indoor air quality for your family.
Air Purification Systems
Air purifiers are designed to remove pollutants from the air inside your home by ionization and oxidation. Air purifiers filter mold, viruses, bacteria, and other irritants out of your indoor air. Northwind AC can configure an air purification system based on your home’s size and your family’s lifestyle to meet your indoor air quality needs.
Ultraviolet Air Purifiers
The humidity on the Texas Gulf Coast creates a perfect situation for mold growth. Mold can be very dangerous to family members with a compromised immune system, chronic respiratory issues, cancer, asthma, and allergies. Basic air purification systems may not completely remove mold spores and mold from your indoor air. An Ultraviolet Air Purifier system is a great solution. An Ultraviolet Air Purifier emits a safe amount of radiation from ultraviolet lamps that kill mold spores, bacteria, and most viruses.
