Indoor Air Quality and Your Home

Air Conditioning, IAQ

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the quality of the air inside your home. It is important to have good IAQ because you spend a lot of time indoors, and poor IAQ can cause a variety of health problems, including allergies, asthma, and respiratory infections.

There are a number of factors that can contribute to poor IAQ, including:

  • Dust mites
  • Pollen
  • Mold
  • Pet dander
  • Secondhand smoke
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are chemicals that are released into the air from paints, varnishes, cleaning products, and other household products. They can cause a variety of health problems, including headaches, nausea, and dizziness.

There are a number of IAQ products that you can use to improve the air quality in your home. Some of the most popular IAQ products include:

  • Air purifiers: Air purifiers remove pollutants from the air, such as dust, pollen, smoke, and pet dander. Air purifiers can be especially helpful for people with allergies or asthma. Click here for our residential IAQ options.
