How is Your Indoor Air Quality?

Things have gotten pretty toasty around here. At this point, we are looking at riding out a long, hot summer. Your air conditioner has a big job to do which is why we want you to take your indoor air quality into consideration. This is because the quality of the air in your home can make things easier or harder on your AC.

If you want your home to achieve and maintain optimal comfort this summer, it is worthwhile to look into your indoor air quality (IAQ). Our job is to make sure you can rely on your home’s systems to keep you cool. That is why we want to make sure you understand the importance of good indoor air quality in New Bern, NC.

Here are some key systems that we can provide services for that will help you optimize your IAQ and your comfort this summer.

How IAQ Impacts Your Comfort

Before we jump in, let us give you a quick overview of how the air quality in your home can make or break your home comfort. In short, air that is too dirty and/or humid can mess with your HVAC system’s operation, making it harder to cool things off. Similarly, dirty air just makes you feel uncomfortable!

The best way to address poor indoor air quality is going to be to work with a professional to install an indoor air quality system such as an air filter, air purifier, or dehumidifier. We provide all of these systems and the services to keep them working right.

Air Filtration Systems

Your first option for an indoor air quality system is an air filtration system. This is not the same as the air filter within your air conditioner. This filter is installed into your ductwork where it cleans the air entering your home rather than keeping debris out of the air entering your AC. An air filtration system will help to remove a good amount of airborne debris including dust, fur, pollen, and more. This system will help keep the air in your home cleaner which means your HVAC system is at a lower risk of struggling with dirty air.

Air Purification Systems

Next, we want to discuss air purification systems. These systems, like an air filter, are installed into your ductwork. However, where an air filter uses a permeable membrane to captured airborne debris, air purifiers use different methods which allow them to tackle additional contaminants that an air filter can’t handle. Air purification systems use either electricity or UV light to clean the air in your home. This allows them to not only clean the air by removing or destroying dust particles but also provide additional benefits such as protection against illness and the prevention of mold growth.


Last but not least we also want to bring the option of a dehumidifier to your attention. As you may have guessed from the name, these systems are going to help to reduce the humidity in your home. Lower humidity makes it a lot easier for your air conditioner to pull the home down. But not to worry a dehumidifier won’t make the air too dry. these systems are built to work with your AC to keep humidity levels within the 30 to 50% range which is optimal for home comfort.
