As a homeowner, you might filter your water or fertilize your garden to improve the quality. But do you pay attention to the quality of your home’s air? Even though air is out of sight, it shouldn’t be out of mind.
At Champion AC & Plumbing, we provide a variety of air quality services to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) in Austin. Keeping your home’s air clean is an important part of home maintenance and general health. With the help of IAQ services, your indoor air will be high-quality in no time.
Why Is IAQ Important?
The air that you breathe is what keeps you alive, but it can be hard to monitor. If you have asthma or allergies, you’ve likely felt the effects of poor air quality. Without proper filtration, poor IAQ can lead to:
- Throat irritation
- Nasal congestion
- Mold illness
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
Depending on what is causing poor IAQ, the symptoms range from mild to life-threatening.
Thankfully, serious air quality symptoms like carbon monoxide poisoning can be prevented with the help of a detector. However, more extensive measures must be taken to actually remove indoor air pollutants.
How To Prevent Poor IAQ
At Champion AC & Plumbing, we can help you improve your home’s air quality with a few simple tools. Through air purification, scrubbing and home air filtration systems, you can boost your IAQ and alleviate unpleasant symptoms.
Air Purification System
A whole-home air purification system removes pollutants from the air to ensure clean home air. This device is placed in your home’s HVAC system to ensure all the air in your home is purified. This system is great for keeping you and your family safe from poor air quality.
Air Scrubber Plus®
Scrubbing your home’s air may seem impossible since there’s nothing physical to scrub. However, air scrubbers go beyond standard filtration and not only trap but kill any pollutants in your air. This in-depth “scrubbing” process is ideal for homeowners who suffer from bad allergies or mold sensitivity.
Clean Air Filter
If you don’t want to invest in an air purifier or scrubber, an easy way to boost IAQ is by changing your air filter. Consider replacing your air filter every 1-2 months for high IAQ, especially if you suffer from allergies or frequent illness.
How HVAC Maintenance Can Help
Although air filtration and purification systems are excellent at boosting IAQ, you still need to schedule routine HVAC maintenance. Over time, dust may collect in your vents and ductwork, and the components in your AC and furnace may get dirty. Both of these factors can contribute to poor IAQ.
At Champion AC & Plumbing, we recommend scheduling an AC tune-up each spring and a furnace tune-up each fall. These routine processes keep your HVAC system clean and detect any threats to your IAQ, including carbon monoxide leaks.
