Trusted Air Quality Products & Services in White Lake, MI and Oakland County
You rely on your home’s HVAC unit to keep you comfortable all year long.
Your air conditioning unit or furnace may be keeping you cool or warm and toasty as seasons change, but is it sabotaging your health by affecting the air quality in your home?
It very well could be!
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air quality refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures as it relates to the health and comfort of its occupants. Indoor air quality is affected by temperature, humidity, ventilation, and chemical or biological contaminants found within the air inside a building.
Why is Indoor Air Quality Important?
An overload of dust can be dispersed by running your furnace or air conditioning unit for the first time. When you first turn your unit on throughout the different seasons, you might notice a burnt dust smell in the air. This happens because with time, especially during warmer months, your air ducts accumulate lots of allergens and dust.
So when that unit turns on, your home becomes flooded with everything that’s accumulated, which can eventually lead to serious health issues, such as:
- Shortness of breath
- Vomiting with a loss of muscle coordination
- Respiratory issues
- Heart disease
What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?
There are several factors that can lead to poor air quality in your home, including:
- Inadequate whole-house ventilation
- High temperatures
- High humidity
- Dust mites
- Indoor pets
- Mold and mildew resulting from moisture damage and high humidity
- Improperly vented combustion appliances and fireplaces

Air purifiers, like humidifiers, ensure the purity of air in your home. There are numerous different air purifiers, each of which operate in their own unique way. However, the most important aspect of these purifiers are air filters.
Filters are essential to the quality of air in your home. It removes dirt and debris (basically any contaminants) from the air before it enters your ducts, system, and eventually your entire home. Without a proper filter, all of that buildup can cause your HVAC unit to struggle, sabotaging its efficiency and lifespan.
If you fail to replace your filters or get annual unit inspections, chances are your air purifier will fail to properly moisturize and clean the air in your home.
If your home feels stuffy and you are beginning to notice an increase in allergy symptoms, it's advised to call an HVAC contractor immediately to properly assess the situation.
Let Our Air Quality Experts at HVAC Comfort Help You Breathe Easier
Upgrading to higher-quality air humidifiers, purifiers, and filters can help produce cleaner air and a healthier home environment. Top-quality filters can be identified by their Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV). We believe that a mid-range filter with no higher than a MERV of 8 can offer increased ventilation, however, it is advised to consult with an HVAC professional prior to upgrading to make sure your home is compatible for your needs.
