Baton Rouge Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality solutions are more important now than ever! We work hard to wash our hands often, keep our homes clean and so much more to protect ourselves from germs and other potentially harmful contaminants. But did you know that the air in your home is easily polluted? Think about it — pollution outside is easily dispersed throughout wide open spaces, but pollutants inside your home can get stuck there and circulate through your home’s air. Luckily, there is a myriad of ways to test and improve your home’s indoor air quality.
Call on Southern Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing to schedule your indoor air quality test and breathe easier in your home.
What is Indoor Air Quality?
Indoor air quality, or IAQ, refers to the air quality in and around buildings such as homes. Just as outdoor air quality can cause increased allergy symptoms and even cause those with respiratory vulnerabilities to stay inside, poor IAQ can have negative effects on the health and well-being of your home. Short-term effects of exposure to poor IAQ include allergy symptoms, asthma symptoms and allergic reactions. In contrast, long-term exposure has been linked to the development of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, cancer and other serious health conditions.
Possible Contaminants in Your Air
So what kinds of pollutants can cause poor residential indoor air quality? In addition to outdoor pollutants that can make their way inside, indoor pollutants that could be contaminating your home’s air include:
- Pet dander and hair
- Bacteria and viruses
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- Secondhand smoke
All of these pollutants and more can get trapped in your home at one time or another, causing frustrating allergy symptoms that only seem to happen inside. But you don’t have to suffer in silence — several IAQ solutions can help remove these contaminants from your home.
Residential Indoor Air Quality Solutions
While keeping your home clean and changing your AC filter are great ways to help maintain your home’s IAQ, they sometimes aren’t enough. That’s where products such as air cleaners, air purification systems, dehumidifiers and more come in. When you choose Southern Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing for indoor air quality services, our expert technician will conduct an IAQ test to determine what kinds of pollutants your home has. Based on the results, we’ll recommend an IAQ solution that fits your unique needs and budget so you can breathe easier in your home.
