“I have health issues that make it fatal to be in hot temperatures for very long. My AC unit broke down (the motor and the starting component, I believe) in the middle of the night, and with high temperatures expected the next day, I was really…really scared. I called this company and they were extremely understanding. The on call tech contacted me within 5 minutes of my initial call and came out at 4:00 in the MORNING and got the job done within an hour. My AC is working again. 🙂 Very pleased!”

Indoor Air Quality Service

For many people, global pollution has become an increasing concern in recent decades. Data on pollution in the world’s major cities is shocking. Still, a lesser-known and perhaps even more dangerous threat to public health is indoor air pollution. In fact, the air inside your home can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air outside.

The American Lung Association warns, “Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections, lung cancer and chronic lung diseases such as asthma.”

Yes, the quality of the air we breathe in our homes is more important than most of us realize. How does indoor air quality affect our health, and what can you do to improve indoor air quality? Reliable Comfort is here with some reliable answers and professional solutions to indoor air pollution

HOW INDOOR AIR QUALITY AFFECTS HEALTH

Sadly, countless people have suffered prolonged symptoms from what they believe is a chronic flu or cold, only to realize in the end, it was their own house or office that was making them sick.

Symptoms of indoor air pollution in your home can range from coughing, sneezing, and congestion to even headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and nausea. Those who suffer from allergies or asthma are especially at risk. Children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems may also be more susceptible to such symptoms.

What pollutants contribute to polluted air in your home?

Indoor Air Pollutants

 

Pollutants come in all shapes and sizes. Even common contaminants such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and normal bacteria found in a home can become a source of ongoing health problems.

Indoor environments are also at risk of other dangerous pollutants such as mold, viruses, and carbon monoxide, which can cause even more damage to building occupants.

Over time, lack of HVAC maintenance and proper ventilation in a home too can create many indoor air quality problems. How can you ensure your family can breathe easy?

Indoor Air Quality Services & Systems

 

Air Filtration Products

As a trusted indoor air quality company, Reliable Comfort Inc. offers top-of-the-line Carrier® air cleaners. These systems effectively remove bacteria, pet dander, pollen, and other pollutants as small as 0.01 microns. Installing an air purifier will adequately filter the air in your indoor environment and eliminate the contaminants that aggravate your allergies.

Air Humidifiers

Heating systems often dry out a home and can damage your health, floors, and furniture. Installing a high-quality humidifier will help keep the humidity in your home at a proper level, even in the winter months. Humidifiers can also work to reduce static electricity that damages electronics.

Fresh Air Ventilators

Modern homes are well-insulated, which is suitable for efficiency, but not so good for indoor air quality. Ventilation is essential for maintaining a healthy environment in a home. Installing a ventilator will ensure your home gets fresh air without compromising efficiency. It will expel cooking, pet, and chemical odors while keeping your heating or air conditioning inside.

Ultra Violet Lights

Ductwork, cooling coils, and other locations in your home can become a breeding ground for the growth of airborne, microbial mold, bacteria, and viruses. The UV light kills these contaminants before they can circulate throughout your home and end up in your lungs.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide detectors are simple, yet potentially life-saving devices that every home and office should have.

Zoning and Programmable Thermostats

Installing multiple zone thermostats throughout your home can help efficiently control the environment for optimum comfort and health in every area of your dwelling. Our programmable thermostats allow you maximum control over your home’s energy usage and environment.

FAQ

How often should I change my air filter?

At the risk of telling you something you’re tired of hearing, replace the air filter in your furnace on a regular basis. Dirty air filters reduce the amount of air flowing through a system and make the furnace work harder to maintain the temperature. How often you change the filter depends on the type of filter you use, if you have pets, and the size of your equipment. Please give us a call and we can give you proper guidance.

How can I reduce allergens and improve the air quality in my home?

With a high efficiency air cleaner, you can remove up to 99% of the pollen and spores that find their way into the home. There is also a great reduction in household dust, dirt, smoke, and other air pollutants. Your indoor air will become cleaner and fresher while reducing the allergens and dust that circulate throughout the house. With a whole house humidifier, you can relieve the irritating discomfort of dry indoor air. The humidifier reduces itchy skin, scratchy throats, static electricity, and damage to your furnishings and woodwork. Since humid air feels warmer than dry air, you do not have to set the thermostat as high to feel the comfort you want. A lower thermostat setting will reduce the costs of your energy bill.

I am concerned about mold growth, what should I do?

Molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees, but indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.

Why should I switch to a high efficiency air filter?

Proper air filtration is just as important to the health of your heating and cooling system as it is to the health of your family. Without proper filtration, dust and dirt can build up on your system which impacts operation and efficiency. A high-efficiency filter will remove more dust, dirt, pollen, mold, and other particles from the air. If you suffer from allergies or other respiratory problems, you should strongly consider a high-efficiency filter. No matter what type of filter you have, make sure you change it regularly.
