Air Quality Pollutants
The air in our homes consists of more than just oxygen, containing biological and chemical particulates that can be damaging to our health in large quantities. Examples of indoor air pollutants include:
- Dust and pet dander
- Mold and other bacteria
- Pollen and other allergens
- Chemical particulates from cleaning materials
- Fumes from fuel-burning appliances
- Other outdoor pollutants
Because being indoors reduces the ventilation of air pollutants, buildings without adequate air filtration systems in place may put those inside at risk of several different health problems. Short-term exposure to many of the pollutants listed above can cause headaches, dizziness, airway and eye irritation and more. These effects are immediately treatable, but they can lead to persistent allergies and asthma. Long-term exposure to pollutants can cause serious health issues such as respiratory and heart diseases.
Signs of Bad Air Quality
One of the most common IAQ questions the Air Clinic team is asked is how to tell if your air quality is bad. If you’re unsure of your home’s air quality, look for these symptoms in yourself and the surrounding area:
- Dust buildup around vents and floats in the air
- Mold and mildew
- Bad odors
- Allergies that only flare up at home
- Irritation or dryness of eyes or airways
- Sinus congestion or frequent coughing and sneezing
If you notice any of these symptoms in your home or business, you may have poor air quality. Contact Air Clinic and speak to a friendly, knowledgeable professional about your options.
Benefits of Air Purification
Those who invest in air quality solutions for their homes often see several lasting benefits. For many, air purification reduces odors, eliminates allergies, makes it easier to breathe and even results in better sleep. Not to mention, you can be confident in the air you’re breathing at home knowing that it’s free of irritating and harmful pollutants. Air quality products are highly recommended for those who have respiratory issues and allergies, as well as homes in mold-prone humid climates.
Air Clinic is proud to offer a variety of different air cleaners to meet your needs. With our varying levels of air filtration, you can accomplish your air quality goals without paying for something you don’t need. Take a look at our air cleaners below.
Standard filters are mainly intended to keep HVAC systems clean, made of a thin material that prevents dust, pet hair and other larger particulates from entering the system and causing problems. They come in a wide variety of standardized sizes as well as custom sizes.
Media filters are made up of a paper-like material that is deeply pleated and compressed in layers to catch much smaller particles than standard filters. Their intended purpose is to improve air quality, catching small pollutants as well as large ones.
Electric Air Cleaners
Electric air cleaners are the most effective way to purify air. Installed as a part of your HVAC system, these cleaners catch larger particulates in a prefilter before the air passes through electrically charged filters. The electrically charged filters attract and trap the smallest particles, thoroughly cleaning the air.
UV light kits can be installed in your HVAC system as an extra method of protection against biological pollutants, like mold and other bacteria. Short-wave ultraviolet lights, which are used in HVAC UV light kits, are scientifically proven to have germicidal qualities. UV light kills up to 99.9% of mold, airborne bacteria and other microscopic biological pollutants. These systems don’t filter out larger particles and chemical pollutants and are not meant to replace air filters. However, they are a great supplement to HVAC systems, especially in humid, mold-prone climates.
