Indoor Air Quality

You take around 20,000 breaths a day. 50 percent of all illnesses are caused by poor indoor air quality. Nearly two-thirds of indoor air problems involve the HVAC system. Even if you don’t feel unwell, you can still benefit from air filtering that can help remove air particles including cold and flu virus.

How do I know if my Joilet home has bad air quality?

You can tell if your home in Joliet has poor air quality a few different ways:

  • Do you have health symptoms only while inside your home, but when you leave, they disappear?
  • Do you see evidence of mold or dust in your vents or on your unit?

There are indoor air quality audits that can be performed on the quality of air inside your home. They measure humidity, pollutants, allergens and other contaminants that could be present in your home’s air.

What causes poor indoor air quality?

Poor air quality in a home is caused by a number of things:

  • Cleaning Supplies - Volatile Organic Compounds and fragrances are in many products sprayed around our home, including cleaning supplies. These chemicals will circulate in the air and throughout a home as soon as they are sprayed. Look for low VOCs in cleansers and other home products.
  • Poor Ventilation - A heating and cooling system should circulate outdoor air inside regularly. If your HVAC system is not working properly or the airflow is clogged, your home might not have the right air circulation and pollutants can get trapped inside.
  • Mold & Mildew - When there is too much moisture in the air, mold and mildew can form, which can be harmful to your health.
  • Life - Pets, dirt, dust, paint, candles and pollen can all cause the indoor air quality in our homes to go down.

What's Lurking In Your Air?

The air in your home typically doesn't circulate very much, which can cause the buildup of contaminants.

Common pollutants that can affect you include:

When these accumulate, they can start to cause symptoms such as headaches and difficulty breathing, particularly in people with conditions such as asthma and allergies. It’s important to look after the health of your household - PDM air filtering can help.
