Noticing Dust Around Your Home? You May Need This!

Having a layer of dust all over your furniture and floors can drive anyone a little crazy, right? But guess what? That dusty situation might be trying to tell you something important. It could be a signal that the air in your home isn’t as fresh and clean as it should be, and that’s not good for your health or your comfort. Don’t worry, though, because there are plenty of ways to fix this and make your home a cleaner and healthier place to live. Let’s dive into some indoor air quality solutions that will have you breathing easier in no time! 

The Importance of Indoor Air Quality

Let’s chat about something super important: Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). This fancy term simply means the air you breathe inside your home and how it affects your health and happiness. Bad IAQ can stir up issues like allergies, breathing troubles, and can make existing health problems even worse. The usual suspects causing IAQ troubles are dust, allergy-triggering stuff, germs, bacteria, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) chemicals you didn’t invite to the party (VOCs).  

If you’ve been noticing excessive dust in your home, that’s your IAQ waving a big red flag at you. Dust often sneaks in from outside and brings along its friends like pollen, pet fluff, and other outdoor pollutants. If you ignore them, these particles can pile up, causing potential health issues. 

Solutions for Better IAQ

Now, you’re probably wondering how to improve your IAQ. Well, there are some cool solutions that can make your air cleaner and your life comfier: 

Air Purification Systems

Experience cleaner, healthier indoor air with state-of-the-art air purification systems. These advanced systems boast an impressive 99.97% efficiency in removing a wide array of airborne particles, including stubborn dust, allergenic pollen, and pet dander. Leveraging cutting-edge filtration technologies, these systems go above and beyond to guarantee that the air in your home is not only clean but entirely free from a wide range of contaminants, creating an environment where you and your loved ones can breathe with confidence. 

UV Germicidal Lights

UV germicidal lights, also known as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) lights, are a powerful addition to your HVAC system, harnessing the natural germicidal properties of UV light to create a cleaner and safer indoor environment. These lights work by emitting a specific wavelength of UV-C light that destroys microbial growth, bacteria, and viruses that may be present in your HVAC system. 

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), UVGI lights have been used for decades to help improve indoor air quality in various settings, including healthcare facilities. 

Whole-House Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

Maintaining proper humidity levels in your home is indeed vital for maintaining good IAQ. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers play a crucial role in achieving and sustaining optimal indoor humidity levels. These devices help to strike a balance, preventing both excessive dryness and excessive moisture, which can lead to a range of IAQ problems. 

Humidifiers add moisture to the air when it’s too dry. Proper humidity levels can help alleviate respiratory issues, reduce static electricity, and even protect wooden furniture from drying out and cracking. According to the EPA, maintaining indoor humidity levels between 30% and 50% is generally recommended for optimal IAQ. 

Conversely, dehumidifiers are essential in regions with high humidity, where excess moisture can lead to mold growth, dust mites, and other microbial issues. The EPA recommends maintaining indoor humidity levels below 60% to prevent these problems. 

Duct Cleaning and Sealing

Over time, dust and dirt can gather in your ducts, which has a detrimental effect on your indoor air quality. This can cause a few problems:

  • Less Efficiency: When your ducts are clogged, your heating and cooling system must work harder, using more energy and increasing your utility bills. 
  • More Bills: Extra energy use means more money spent on your utility bills, and it’s not great for the environment either. 
  • Health Worries: The dust in your ducts can have bad stuff like allergens and microbial growth, which can make you sick. 

The Perks of Better IAQ

So, what’s in it for you? Well, quite a lot, actually: 

  • Healthier Living: Our IAQ solutions help cut down on dust and other gross stuff in the air, making you breathe easier and feel better, especially if you have allergies. 
  • Cleaner Home: Say goodbye to that endless dusting routine! With a top-notch HVAC system, you’ll see less dust settling on your furniture, leaving you with a spick-and-span living space. 
  • Energy Efficiency: Clean ducts and a well-maintained HVAC system don’t just mean cleaner air; they can also help cut down on your energy bills by ensuring your system works its best.

I called Goettl to get a second opinion on a/c repair options or replacement. Peter Medelez conducted a very thorough system check and confirmed all the same issues previously identified but found an additional issue; tipping the scale to full replacement. We appreciated his professionalism and knowledge: answering all our questions and explaining the issues and options. We ultimately chose Goettl for the replacement option due to their price and professionalism.

William and Cameron were knowledgeable, friendly, professional, respectful and put on plastic booties over their shoes when they came into the house. Our pets were comfortable with them and that says a lot. We will definitely ask for them again in the future if our AC has any issues.
