What Can Cause Low Indoor Air Quality?

truckFor a lot of homeowners, the quest for comfort in their homes begins and ends with temperature control. Here in New Mexico, that typically means air conditioning, specifically. Now, we are definitely not going to argue the fact that you don’t really need a great AC in your home. That would be madness. And we are also happy to handle any and all AC services that you may need to keep your home comfortable throughout the year.

However, we also want to stress the fact that comfortable temperatures alone are not really enough to ensure your comfort. You also need to enjoy air of a high quality in your home. We are a one-stop HVAC company in Flora Vista,  NM, which means that we can handle your indoor air quality services with the same level of expertise that we handle AC services with. So read on, and be sure to contact us if you are ready to start breathing air of a higher quality in your home.

General Cleanliness

This can be a touchy subject for some, and we do not mean to throw anyone under the bus. We get it. Life is busy, the kids are running around, you’ve got to finish up that work project after dinner—modern life is hectic, and maybe you just are not able to keep up with it all, all of the time. In such common situations, cleaning, vacuuming, and dusting may need to take a back seat to more pressing matters.

Just know that general cleanliness does have a major impact on the overall indoor air quality in your home. It’s not just a matter of surfaces looking a bit dingy due to dirt and dust. The fact is that the activity in your home can stir these pollutants up and send them airborne. When that happens, you can really count on your indoor air quality suffering.

Pets (Yeah, We Love Them Too)

Nobody is going to advocate getting rid of your pets just to protect the indoor air quality in your home. Pets are a part of our families, and we adore them! That doesn’t mean that they’re without their flaws, though. After all, those furry friends of ours are not exactly great about cleaning up the fur that they leave throughout the house.

Some simple steps can save you a lot of cleanup time while also protecting your indoor air quality, though. Brush your pets frequently, and make sure that you do it outside. Whenever possible, weather permitting, let them hang out in the sun in order to dry up any mud in their coats. That makes it a lot easier to remove. And, despite how they may feel, give them baths more frequently!

Location (Not Much to Do About This One!)

Proximity to active construction sites, wooded areas,  major roadways—these things are out of your control,  but they can really do a number on your indoor air quality. Unless you’re willing to up and move to escape these issues, you’ll have to live with them. But using the right air filtration and air purification systems makes that a lot easier. Speak with our team to learn more about what will most benefit you.
