3 Ways to Boost Your Home IAQ


Have you found that spending more time in your home has kicked your allergies into high gear? While the fall season is often a cause for irritation of your nose and lungs, the source of the issue may also be the air in your home. Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) is a problem that many modern homes have and, thankfully, is one we can fix, too.

When it comes to boosting your home’s indoor air quality in Egg Harbor Township, NJ, you can turn to us for the systems and services that will help. Check out the solutions that we can offer for your home comfort needs.

3 IAQ Solutions You Can Turn To Us For

All too often, people don’t realize that the quality of the air in their homes plays a role in how comfortable they can be. If you are struggling with indoor air quality issues like high levels of dust, debris, pollen, and other contaminants, you can turn to us for these great IAQ solutions.

1. Air Filters

The first IAQ system option that most people opt for is the air filtration system. This isn’t the filter that comes with your AC or heater–that filter is meant to protect the interior of your system, not your home’s air. This system is installed into your ductwork where a semi-permeable membrane captures a variety of contaminants and removes them from the air that is blown into your home. This is great for tackling excess amounts of dust, dirt, pollen, fur, etc.

2. Duct Sealing

Your ductwork is the pathway that your home’s air passes through to reach its destination. If you have well-sealed ducts, this keeps the air in them clean and comfortable. However, if your ducts have small holes or leaks, it can impede the quality of the air by introducing temperatures and airborne debris that you don’t want blowing into your home.

3. Air Purifiers

Much like an air filter, a whole-home air purification system is going to be placed into your ductwork. Once there, the purifier will use one of two methods (depending on the type of system that you had installed) to clean the air in your home. One system uses electricity to charge airborne particles and capture them on a magnetized plate. The other purifier option uses UV light to destroy airborne particles and nullify the risk that they present. This is great for contaminants like viruses, bacteria, mold spores, and more.

Not sure which system would provide the best solution to your IAQ needs? Not to worry, we are happy to help. When you work with our team, one of our technicians can assess your biggest indoor air quality problems and pair you with the best systems or services to address the issue at its core. That way, you can enjoy real home comfort all year long without any hassle.
