How Does Your Indoor Air Get Dirty?
There are a variety of internal and external factors that contribute to indoor air quality. For example, you likely track in dirt and pollen from the outdoors without even realizing it. Throughout the day, your home also gathers dust, pet dander, and even dead skin cells. These particles all go into the air and get pushed through your home if your HVAC filter can’t catch them.
Some homes with high moisture levels are also susceptible to mold growth, which can cause respiratory problems and worsen asthma symptoms. We take this into consideration during our service calls and always check for unwanted moisture pooling in various parts of the house.
How Can You Improve Your Indoor Air Quality?
The solutions to improve your indoor air quality vary by the needs of your family and your home. At C & G Heating & Cooling, we work to find the source of the problem and fix it, rather than masking unwanted smells or cleaning up dust.
Depending on your needs, our service technicians will recommend a variety of air cleaners, air purification systems, air humidifiers, and ventilators for your home. Some homes just need to get their humidity under control, while other homeowners need to remove pet dander and allergens for sensitive family members. We will never recommend products that you don’t need or push you to buy items that you’re not sure about.

Your home’s indoor air quality is especially important during the summer and winter when extreme temperatures often keep you inside. Flu and illness spread faster during cold months, and you could weaken your immune system with dust and mold. During the spring and summer, pollen spreads everywhere and can irritate people with allergies.
