Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality Is Important—Request Help in Oakland County, MI

If you’ve ever lived in a big city that’s often wrapped in a cloud of smog, you know just how much poor air quality can affect your quality of life. In fact, the National Weather Service (NWS) regularly tracks air quality and often issues air quality alerts when air pollution reaches levels that pose a risk to public health. When these alerts reach your family—or if you’re suffering from poor air quality in your home—consider working with HVAC Comfort to evaluate indoor air quality and find a solution that improves your health.

Air quality is a major concern for good reason—pollution is a significant source of illnesses that cost as much as $150 billion a year to treat. When the NWS issues an alert, they include tips for staying safe, including advising people to stay indoors as much as possible. Luckily, we have a lot more control over the indoor air quality in our homes than we do over outdoor pollution. With the right tools and services from professionals like HVAC Comfort—such as whole home humidifiers, air purifiers, air filters, and indoor air quality testing—we can do a lot to reduce or completely remove pollutants from our homes and ensure a healthy space for ourselves and our loved ones.

The indoor air quality in homes is evaluated using the U.S. Air Quality Index (AQI). The AQI is a scale from 0–500, with 0 being the cleanest air possible. In order for your home to be safe for everybody to live in, its AQI needs to achieve a score of 50 or below. Our skilled team of indoor air quality testers can help get you there in no time.

Whole Home Humidifier

Keeping your air clean is easier than you might think. At HVAC Comfort, we recommend installing a whole home humidifier to keep air from getting too dry or moist.

A whole house humidifier is connected to your home’s duct system, and as long as it’s functioning, it adds a fixed amount of moisture to the air pulled or pushed by a fan into the duct system and distributed throughout the house.

Home Air Purifier

Home air purifiers, like humidifiers, ensure your home’s air is clean. There are many kinds of air purifiers to choose from, and each operates in its own unique way. The most important part of these purifiers is the air filter.

Filters are essential for maintaining good air quality in your Michigan home. Outside air flows through the filter, trapping particles from the air before they enter your ducts, system, and eventually your entire home. Without a proper filter or consistent air filter replacement, the 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, your air purifier will fail to properly moisturize and clean the air in your home.

If your home feels stuffy and you notice an increase in allergy symptoms, call an HVAC service provider immediately to assess the situation or to schedule your indoor air quality test.

The Main Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality

There are two things that especially lower indoor air quality—poor circulation and ineffective filtration. We need the air to circulate regularly throughout our living spaces and ductwork to reduce humidity and the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. It’s also important to have good filtration systems to trap pollutants—such as pet dander, wood and cigarette smoke, and dust—and keep them from circulating throughout our homes.

If you notice any signs of poor air quality in your home—like an increase in dust buildup or mold—HVAC Comfort provides indoor air quality testing near Clarkston and throughout Oakland County that can help you and your loved ones breathe a lot easier at home.

Air Quality FAQs

  • What impacts indoor air quality?

    Some of the more serious indoor air pollutants include carbon monoxide and radon, but there’s a whole host of other pollutants that can affect your home’s air quality and trigger allergies and asthma. These include mold, pet dander, dust mites, second-hand smoke, and wood smoke. Also, if the filters in your HVAC system are dirty, they can’t trap pollutants or circulate air and moisture effectively.

     
  • What are the signs that my indoor air quality is low?

    If you notice you’re regularly dealing with headaches; increased allergy or asthma problems; irritations to your eyes, throat, and nose; or congestion issues, it’s a good idea to call the professionals at HVAC Comfort for indoor air quality testing near Waterford, Clarkston, and surrounding areas.

     
  • Can an indoor air quality monitor help?

    Indoor air quality monitors are useful because they can detect and provide specific information about the types of particles in your home’s air that can decrease your air quality. Many can also show you changes to your air quality and to the different particles present throughout the year. This information is especially helpful for identifying the main sources of pollution and ways to improve your indoor air quality.

     
  • Could an air purifier improve indoor air quality?

    Air purifiers vary significantly in terms of how much air they draw in and filter, and many of them aren’t especially effective if there’s a major source of indoor air pollution. Although they can help clean the air, reducing or eliminating the pollution source is more effective. 

    • Use higher-quality air filters for your HVAC system
    • Change air filters regularly to keep them effective. 

    Clean, quality filters will improve your indoor air quality and ensure your system keeps running smoothly for years to come.

     
  • Could a whole home humidifier improve indoor air quality?

    Are you deciding between a whole home humidifier and an air purifier? Installing a whole home humidifier is a great way to improve your indoor air quality. It stabilizes the humidity in your living spaces by delivering the right amount of moisture through your ductwork, keeping your air from getting too moist or too dry. As a result, you won’t just feel more comfortable in your home, but you’ll also likely see lower utility bills because you’ll be able to keep your thermostat at a lower temperature.
