What Is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air quality or IAQ refers to the air quality within and around structures and buildings, particularly as it relates to the comfort and health of the people occupying those buildings. Improving a building’s IAQ by understanding and controlling common indoor pollutants can help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns. Many people spend the majority of their time indoors, so maintaining good IAQ is important.

Improving Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

There are three basic strategies to improve IAQ, including using air cleaners, improving ventilation, and controlling the sources of pollutants. Source control is the most effective way to improve your home’s IAQ. Eliminate the sources of pollution inside your home or reduce their emissions. You can also improve your home’s ventilation. As an indoor air quality and air conditioning repair expert, we can assist you by providing effective products.

You can also install an air cleaner to remove pollutants from your indoor air. There are many different types of air cleaners on the market. You need to consider how well the air cleaner draws air and how well it collects pollutants before making your choice. Give us a call if you want an accurate assessment of your home’s IAQ needs and if you want to learn which air cleaners will meet those needs.
