Symptoms of Poor Air Quality in Your Home

Did you know the quality of the air inside your home or office can actually be worse than the air outside? For some, this low air quality can be life threatening and should be taken care of immediately.

Poor air quality inside your home or office is likely to cause some common symptoms.

Some of these include:

  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Irritation of the eyes and nose
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Decreased ability to fight respiratory infection

For those who have pre-existing heart or lung conditions, the effects of poor air can be more severe.

How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

If you’re looking to improve the air you breathe each day, there are several options. At Stellar Services of North Florida, LLC., we take a look at your current indoor air pollution to first determine which is the right choice for you.

Air Purifiers

Air purifiers work by filtering your air with filters that trap airborne particles. Depending on the grade of the filter, smaller particles can still get through. High Energy Particulate Air (HEPA) filters guarantee to trap 99.7% of all particles 3 microns or larger (anything smaller than 10 microns is not visible by the naked eye).

Humidifiers

Humidifiers add moisture to the air. They are the perfect solution if you find that the air in your home is too dry. Too much static electricity in your home is a sure sign of dry air. It is recommended that your home’s humidity level be somewhere between 30 to 50%. If the moisture exceeds those levels, it can actually be harmful.

Dehumidifiers

Chances are, if you live in Florida, your home probably has too much humidity. Dehumidifiers can be a great tool in keeping the humidity in your home at optimal levels. Too much humidity can be uncomfortable, and it may be driving your energy bill up because it forces your air conditioning to work harder.

Duct Cleaning

Duct cleaning is an invaluable service in keeping dust and allergen levels down in your home. Your AC ducts can trap particles, which are then distributed throughout your home.

If you are interested in your indoor air quality with clean ducts, Stellar Services of North Florida, LLC. offers thorough duct cleaning.

Whole House Cleaners

Whole house units attach to your central air unit and filter the air that circulates throughout your home.

There are several whole house cleaning options:

  • Flat filters: A filter installed in your central AC that scrubs the air clean
  • Extended media filters: A more substantial filter with multiple levels of filtration
  • Electronic filters: Air passes through an electronic field that “zaps” particles floating in the air
  • UV filters: These use UV light to destroy particles in the air

We’re the Only HVAC Company You’ll Ever Need

Many people believe that the air inside of their home or office is clean, but this is a common misconception. Studies have shown that indoor air is often much more polluted than outdoor air.

According to the EPA, indoor air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants, has drastically declined in recent years due to an increase in construction.

At Stellar Services of North Florida, LLC., we install industry-leading products in homes and businesses throughout North Central Florida to ensure that you and your family are breathing in the cleanest air possible. Whether you are looking for air purifiers, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, UV lights, or whole-home air cleaners, our Gainesville indoor air quality experts are here to help determine which product is best for you.

Breathe easier with improved indoor air quality. Call (352) 290-4919 or contact us online to get started.

What Is Indoor Air Quality?

Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Some of the most common air pollutants include:

  • Smoke
  • Pollen
  • Bacteria
  • Mold
  • Animal feces
  • Viruses
  • Pet dander
  • Mildew

All of these and more are prone to being trapped inside your home over the years, causing the air you breathe to become more and more polluted. The more polluted your indoor air is, the more likely you and your family are to suffer from worsened allergy symptoms and asthma attacks.

Smoking is one of the most common factors that contribute to poor indoor air quality. Carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and other harmful chemicals are found in cigarettes. Even those exposed to secondhand smoke can experience asthma attacks, ear infections, and lower respiratory tract infections.

The Benefits of Improving Your Indoor Air Quality

As you improve the air you breathe, it’s likely that you will notice many other aspects of your life improving. Asthma suffers, allergy sufferers, children, and the elderly will be able to breathe easier. You will also notice your home feeling fresher. Indoor air quality systems clean the air, meaning many odors become less prominent as well.

Cleaner air leads to a healthier, happier, and more comfortable home or office.
