How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality in Chandler AZ

 

The statistics on indoor air quality in the United States can sound intimidating. According to the U.S. EPA’s Indoor Environments Division (IED), the poor ventilation in homes can contribute to making the quality of the air inside far lower than that outside, even factoring in outdoor air pollution. Since a person spends on average 85% of his or her time indoors, low indoor air quality can pose a serious health risk.

You can help improve your air quality in Chandler, AZ by allowing more outdoor air inside your home with open windows. However, we know this will not always be an option with the Arizona weather; here are some other ways to protect your air quality. Contact Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning today to find out about the ways we can help you have cleaner air.

Regular Duct Cleaning

A basic step for cleaner air in your home is to schedule regular professional cleaning for your HVAC system’s ductwork. No matter how clean your home or well-maintained your heating and cooling system, dust will still enter the ducts and start to build up. Depending on your home, you should have professional duct cleaning done on the ventilation system every one to two years. The extensive process of power vacuuming and agitation will remove most particles from your ductwork.

Air Cleaners

Air cleaners installed into your ducts will help prevent dust, dirt, pollen, dander, and even bacteria and smoke from entering your living spaces. Mechanical air filters, such as ones that use HEPA filters, can trap larger particles, while electronic air cleaners using ionization of the air can remove tiny particles that mechanical filters miss.

UV Germicidal Lights

One of the most unpleasant pollutants that can infiltrate your ducts is mold. Different kinds of bacteria can begin to grow inside ducts due to trapped moisture, and these biological contaminants can trigger many health problems such as flu-like symptoms. They are especially hazardous for people with allergies. The best way to put a stop to mold and other biological nuisances is with the installation of UV germicidal lights, which destroy bacteria without damaging ductwork or harming your air.

Although you can often tell when your ducts need cleaning (just unscrew one of the vents and use a handheld mirror to peer at the interior) you may not know what remedies to use. That’s why you should contact our indoor air quality specialists in Chandler, AZ, to find out about all your options for improving your home’s air. We perform quality duct cleaning, and install a variety of air cleaners and UV germicidal lights to satisfy your need for healthier air.
