Air conditioning is about much more than heating and cooling. Indoor air quality, or IAQ, is just as crucial to the comfort of your home as its temperature, and it can even affect your health. That’s why Air Tech of Houston AC & Plumbing offers a wide selection of air quality solutions to keep you healthy and comfortable in your home. When you choose Air Tech of Houston AC & Plumbing for IAQ services, you can breathe easy knowing that the air in your home is clean.

What is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air quality is the condition of the air within and around a building or structure. It’s essential inside your home because it’s where you spend the majority of your time. We monitor the air quality outside because we know how important it is to breathe clean air. For the same reason, it’s crucial to work towards keeping the air in your home clean.

Consequences of Poor Air Quality

Poor IAQ can have a wide range of short-term and long-term effects on you, your family and even pets. Short-term exposure to poor IAQ can cause irritation of the eyes, nose and throat; headaches; dizziness and fatigue. If you have allergies that tend to flare up indoors, poor IAQ could be the cause. Long-term exposure to allergens can develop respiratory diseases such as asthma, heart disease and even cancer.

Threats to Indoor Air Quality

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) these are several common indoor air pollutants that can affect your home’s air quality, including:

  • Dust mites
  • Mold
  • Pet dander
  • Environmental smoke
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Bacteria
  • Outdoor pollutants

In Houston, our homes are especially vulnerable to mold growth to the high humidity in the area. While you may not be able to see pollutants in your home’s air, you can look for signs of poor IAQ. Monitor yourself and other household members for the physical symptoms listed above, including irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. Also, keep an eye out for:

  • Dust buildup, especially around air vents
  • Hot or cold spots around the house
  • Unpleasant odors
  • Low airflow from vents

Houston Indoor Air Quality Solutions

If you suspect that your home’s air quality isn’t at its best, Air Tech of Houston AC & Plumbing has several air quality products available to restore clean air to your home. We offer indoor air cleaners, which are portable and perfect for apartments and targeting specific rooms in your house. They are a cost-effective, but high-quality, solution to air quality issues.

We also offer whole-home air filtration systems for a more comprehensive approach and the highest quality of air throughout your entire home. Rather than targeting a specific room, these systems are installed directly into your central AC system and filter out pollutants, like dust and mold, before they get to the rest of your home.

No matter what approach you choose for your home’s air quality, choose Air Tech of Houston AC & Plumbing. As an HVAC company, we have the experience and skill required to ensure your home’s IAQ is the best it can be, and we’re committed to getting you results.
