There are more than half a dozen indoor air pollutants likely to turn up in any home environment. They are excess moisture, volatile organic compounds, dust, viruses, bacteria, pesticides and radon, all known to have an effect on human health. Precision Greenville Heating & Cooling installs the latest HEPA filters, air filtration systems and humidifiers, the best ways to filter dangerous elements out of your home's indoor air.
Common Indoor Air Pollutants
Excessive Moisture: Aside from causing clammy discomfort, moisture can cause mold, mildew, and even dust mites that can aggravate allergies and negatively affect breathing, causing or worsening conditions like asthma. Too much moisture in your air can also damage wooden furniture and accelerate rusting of mechanical equipment and components. Excess moisture can be controlled by a dehumidifier. Call Precision Greenville for your dehumidifier options today.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): These indoor air pollutants are from evaporated gases, including formaldehyde, released by some cleaning materials, carpets and furniture. Air filtration can reduce VOCs in the air, making it easier for you to take a healthy breath. The most effective filters available are HEPA filters, which remove 99.97% of VOCs and particulate matter from your home's air. Call us about HEPA air filtration for your family's health today.

There are several indoor air quality sensors on the market right now that can detect (and document over time) the quality of air within your house. PM2.5 levels (small dust particles and other allergens in the air that you breathe), VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds - like chemical pollutants), temperature and humidity are commonly measured by these instruments (for mold). These gadgets generally cost between $150 and $250.
Poor indoor air quality can cause an array of health issues that range from aggravating to life-threatening. Itchy eyes, a runny nose, sneezing, coughing, dizziness and weariness are common symptoms. If any of your family members have asthma, poor indoor air quality can also increase their odds of having asthma symptoms including wheezing, trouble breathing, coughing and chest tightness.
First, replace your AC filters on a regular basis, or get an air conditioning service plan that includes a filter change – especially if you have allergies or live in a polluted metropolitan area. Examine your air ducts as well. Dust, dander and even mold can collect in your ducts over time, lowering overall air quality. Hire an expert to ensure that your ducts are flowing clean, fresh air. Also, control the humidity in the home. Mold and mildew thrive in humid and damp environments, causing respiratory disorders such as allergies and asthma. With a few strategically positioned dehumidifiers, you can reduce the moisture in the air and prevent the formation of bothersome molds.
