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.
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.
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.
