  • Dizziness
  • Extreme Fatigue
  • Eyes, Nose, or Throat Irritation
  • Frequent Headaches
  • Itchiness
  • Respiratory Congestion

Factors that Control IAQ 

90% of our lives are spent inside our homes, which are built with materials that have the ability to break down over time. It is of the utmost importance that you prioritize improving your indoor air since it’s what we breathe throughout the day. A proper HVAC unit and regular maintenance are important pieces to having quality air in your home and will prevent pollutants from affecting you. 

Why Routine HVAC Maintenance is Crucial to Keeping Your Air Clean

To prevent yourself from breathing in poor indoor air in your home, consider cleaning out your HVAC system on a regular basis, replacing your HVAC filter monthly, or installing an ultraviolet (UV) light in your HVAC system to prevent mold growth and other pollutants from forming. 

How to Consistently Monitor Your IAQ

Keeping track of your HVAC system and IAQ on a regular basis is vital to ensuring everything is functioning as it should and your air quality stays clean. Take the time to speak with a professional HVAC system expert to understand your unit better and how you can improve it. With a number of HVAC software systems available, you can monitor your home temperature, humidity, and detect the pollutants in your environment in real-time.
