Common Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Problems with the air inside your home aren’t always as obvious as a broken furnace or air conditioner. Pollution and contaminants may be present, but in concentrations difficult to notice. A technician from R&D Indoor Comfort can provide a thorough inspection to determine any issues. You can also keep an eye out for some of the following signs:

  1. Discomfort or irritation—Many airborne contaminants and other air quality concerns can cause or agitate breathing problems, allergies, sinus irritation and more. Even if your indoor air is clean, other things like the humidity levels can leave you feeling on-edge.
  2. Mold, dust and residue—Even with regular cleaning, some dust and grime is to be expected. If you’ve noticed an unusual spike in how often you clean, there could be something in the air making your job harder.
  3. Strange or foul odors—There are few places if any inside your home that air can’t reach. Excess moisture or damp air can spur the growth of microorganisms, and often smells unpleasantly musty.

Here are just a few of the indoor air quality products we offer:

Indoor Air Quality Equipment

UVC Germicidal Lights

One of the most common indoor air quality concerns is the presence of microorganisms. Bacteria, mold, mildew and other contaminants can irritate your lungs, carry disease and cause breathing problems. UVC germicidal lights deactivate these organisms, preventing them from reproducing. This essentially removes the risk they pose to your home’s indoor air, making UV lamps one of the best ways to improve indoor air quality.

Air Filtration Systems

Filters and filtration equipment utilize a variety of ingenious designs to capture airborne particulates. They can be installed independently or as part of your existing HVAC system. Wherever you install them, filtration systems are designed to be much more efficient at trapping particles and contaminants compared to a standard HVAC filter.

Upgrade to a high-efficiency or HEPA filter for improved indoor air quality. We only use proven, industry-approved products that meet or exceed the promises they make. Our experienced technicians can provide the installation, maintenance and repair of these systems. In fact, we can even help you create a custom filtration system specific to your sense of comfort.

Humidity Control

Humidity control is a surprisingly crucial part of indoor air quality management. Excess humidity during the summer can carry airborne illnesses or harm furniture and artwork. But too little humidity in the colder months dries out your throat and sinuses. Adding humidity in the winter and removing it in the summer is easy with our available humidity control systems.

Sometimes humidity control needs to be restricted to one room or floor of the house. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers can be found in both portable and central models. We’ll be happy to help you compare them until you’re certain which one will work best. Our comfort HVAC contractors can also assess your specific humidity needs and design a year-round solution.

Ventilation

Modern homes are well-sealed from the outdoors for energy-efficient heating and cooling. Unfortunately, this can also result in stagnant, poorly circulated indoor air. Your R&D technician can keep air moving smoothly through your HVAC system with specialized ventilation equipment. Stale indoor air is exchanged for fresh, filtered air from outside. If your home is tightly sealed or has a basement, additional ventilation equipment could be a preferable option.

Did you know indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air? Let us help you design a comprehensive indoor air quality solution complete with professional installation, maintenance and repair services. We’ll support you every way we can, with courteous and experienced staff.
