Your Home and Air Quality
Maintaining your HVAC system is not just for efficiency. Your ventilation system plays a major part in the quality of air in your home. It literally provides the air that you breathe and if there is anything harmful present, your family could face serious negative health risks. The best way to get ahead and even prevent future risks is to schedule an Indoor Air Quality Test. This process determines if any pollutants are present in your home.

Indoor Air Quality Testing
Indoor air quality refers to, well, the quality of air in and around a building. It is all in relation to the health and comfort of the residents of that building. It’s actually very important to understand the quality of air in your home. Doing so will help reduce and even prevent health risks to your family. The best way to determine the quality of air in your home is to schedule an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Test. All About Heat & Air now offers IAQ testing in your area.
When you schedule an appointment with All About Heat & Air, we will send a licensed technician out to your home. During an IAQ test we test for things like:
- Mold: Mold spores that are both active and inactive can still pose a serious threat to the health of your home. Generally, mold is the result of unchecked water damage. It is often found in attics, in and around the insulation, but mold can grow just about anywhere.
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): VOCs are actually found in a large amount of cleaners, solvents, and degreasers. Basically anything that is petroleum-based and could be used every single day. However, the largest source of VOCs are actually gasoline, diesel, heating oils, and kerosene. These can create what is called vapor intrusion, creating a higher risk.
The indoor air quality testing will help you understand what exactly is present in your home and to what degree. Once you know what is going on in your home, you can then take steps to remove any pollutants and protect your home.
- Change air filters
- Schedule yearly inspections
- Invest in air purifiers
- Cleaning vents regularly
Not only can All About Heat & Air help with IAQ testing, we can help with any solution to reverse the effects. We can come out to inspect and repair your ductwork as well as clean the vents in your home. One of the best things you can do is keep with regular maintenance of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioner.
