Many homeowners in Fort Worth may be surprised by what’s actually floating in their air — and entering their lungs! Even the tidiest home traps naturally occurring particles inside, but some can be more harmful than others. Here are some of the most common air contaminants that nearly every home has floating in the air:
And that’s just a few! Your HVAC filters are designed to remove some of these large particles, but they aren’t perfect. If you struggle with more specific air contaminants — like smoke, odors, complex viruses, and more — you’ll need a higher level filter at the very least. That’s why a professional air quality test is highly recommended!
The tricky thing about your indoor air quality is that symptoms often mimic those of a flu or cold. This can make it difficult to identify air quality as the true problem in your home. However, cleaner air can do wonders for respiratory illnesses and general health in your home, so it’s important to get to the bottom of it. Keep an eye out for some of these symptoms:
These are good signs that something is off inside your HVAC system or home that’s causing your air to fill with pollutants. Make sure to call a professional as soon as you notice reduced air quality. Prolonged exposure to contaminated air can exacerbate respiratory illness and even cause respiratory distress.
First, our team will perform a thorough air quality test. The report on this test will basically tell us which particles are concentrated the most inside your home. If any of your family have specific allergies, we might look at the levels of that contaminant specifically to see if it’s causing trouble.
Next, we advise the best course of action for your home. Whether that’s a whole-home air filter, air purifier or an HVAC filter upgrade, we always find a way to help. Our team will make sure that the installation or implementation of your IAQ solution is completed flawlessly, leaving you breathing deeper right away.
In addition to IAQ system installation, our team can check out your entire HVAC system to make sure there are no other components contributing to poor air quality. For example, your air ducts and HVAC unit can both collect air contaminants that end up back in your breathable air. Luckily, our team can identify if any other parts of your air system need attention to promote a healthy home!
