Why Indoor Air Quality Is a Huge Part Of Your Home Comfort

Ever had a big sneezing fit when you were at home? Chances are that you have and, once your nose finally calmed down, you didn’t feel too comfortable afterward. Even with the ideal temperature setting for your house, poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can seriously mess with your comfort.

We provide help with your indoor air quality as some of our many comprehensive HVAC services in Brigantine, NJ. This is because we know that the quality of the air in your home plays a big role in how comfortable you really are. If you weren’t sure what role your IAQ played in your home comfort before now, please let us fill you in and provide the systems and services that will help you breathe easier this season.

Factors That Can Mess With Your IAQ

You may be wondering what in the world can mess with your IAQ and your comfort all at once. There is more than one factor out there that can make you feel uncomfortable, stuffy, etc. These include

  • Dust
  • Dirt
  • Fur
  • Pollen
  • Mold spores
  • Viruses and bacteria
  • Dry air

All of this and more can mess with your IAQ and your home comfort as well. Thankfully our IAQ systems can help.

How We Can Boost Your IAQ

The professional team at Elliot-McElwee, Inc. has the systems and services that can address issues in your IAQ and help boost your home comfort as a result. Here are just some of the key options that we have that can help you:

  • Duct Services: Do you have a heater and air conditioner that uses ductwork? If so, then you will need help with keeping your ducts in prime condition. That’s what our duct services are for. Our duct sealing and repair can identify and fix leaks, holes, or tears in your ductwork that can let cold, dirty air into your home and strain your heater. If you have a more serious issue with your ducts, our duct replacement services can resolve the issue.
  • Air Filters and Purifiers: Battling with dust and other airborne debris isn’t easy. Our air filters and air purifiers can help though. Filters capture airborne particles to remove them from your airflow, ideal for homes battling excess dust, fur, etc. Our purifiers can take things a step further and knock out the threats presented by viruses, bacteria, and mold spores.
  • Humidifiers: It can feel odd to think about adding humidity to your home. However, especially in the coldest times of the year, dry air can create big problems for your health and comfort. You want the humidity level in your home to be between 30 and 50%. A whole-house humidifier can help you accomplish this and feel much warmer this season.

As you can see, we offer some of the best options to address the IAQ issues you may be dealing with. Not sure what you need to do to clear the air in your home? We can help to assess your IAQ in order to pair you with the systems and/or services that will give you the best results.
