Benefits of a Spring In Home Air Quality Test
Poor indoor air quality can have a variety of detrimental effects on your overall health and comfort. Regularly testing the air quality inside your home before the annual maintenance on your home comfort systems may show deficiencies you may have in air quality and may enable the technician to provide comfort solutions to improve your indoor home environment. Armstrong uses AirAdvice to help test your home’s IAQ.
Biological pollutants, volatile organic compounds, pet dander, asbestos, dust, lead, pesticides, secondhand smoke, particulates, and other potentially harmful airborne materials can be found in indoor air. Here are a few reasons why testing your air quality with AirAdvice before spring can be beneficial.
1. Improves Health
Poor indoor air quality can trigger allergies caused by airborne contaminants. Headaches, nausea, fatigue, unexplained coughing, and flu-like symptoms may also be caused by indoor air that is contaminated by various sources. Left unchecked, these illnesses may lead to long term respiratory issues, heart disease, and in some cases, cancer. Having your home’s indoor air quality tested before the start of spring, can help identify pollutants inside your home.
Removing contaminants from the air may significantly improve your overall health. Armstrong professionals use AirAdvice, which allows our air quality and comfort advisors to evaluate the air inside your Lubbock, TX area home and offer health-enhancing corrections such as the Reme Halo to destroy airborne mold spores, bacteria, and viruses. They also offer other high quality solutions such as AprilAire, Honeywell, and Healthy Climate to meet the specific needs in your home.
2. Improves Comfort
Another factor in indoor air quality is the amount of interior humidity. Indoor humidity levels should range between 30% to 50%. Higher amounts can cause your Lubbock, TX, house to feel warm and sticky, as well as increase the danger of mold growth. When humidity is too low inside your home, you may experience dry skin, increased viruses, and colds. Increased static electricity may also occur, which is potentially damaging to your electronic devices. Indoor air purity testing like our AirAdvice can pinpoint exactly what is limiting your comfort level, allowing you to take corrective action.
3. Shows When Updated Air Quality Solution Are Needed
Regular seasonal air quality testing monitors changes in your home’s indoor environment, which enables Armstrong HVAC technicians to pinpoint issues quickly and provide indoor air quality improvement solutions before they become major health or comfort concerns. A Spring indoor air quality test allows easier identification of airborne contaminants or humidity issues, which will help you as a homeowner make the best purchase decision to decide whether a dehumidifier, humidifier, UV air filter, or some other air quality solution is the most economical and efficient. Indoor air quality analysis by Armstrong’s professionals ensures your home’s indoor air quality is at the highest level possible for your best health and overall comfort.
4. Reduces Pet and House Odors
Smoke, combustion emissions, rodent droppings, mold and mildew, volatile organic compounds, and even our pets can emit odors that contaminate the air we breathe indoors. The issue may be concealed deep within your home’s air conditioning ducts. A spring indoor air quality test before your annual spring system maintenance will reveal areas that can be greatly improved with the proper indoor air quality solution that best meets your health and comfort needs.
5. Improves Overall Systems Efficiency
Having a seasonal indoor air quality test, such as AirAdvice used by the professionals at Armstrong, may show deficiencies in your home’s ductwork, blocked air vents or returns, and possibly concerns with your main comfort system unit. Addressing any issues with your HVAC, indoor air quality, and ductwork may improve the overall operation of your home’s cooling and heating systems. An efficient system saves energy costs!
