    If you want to keep your Virginia Beach home as comfortable and healthy as possible, it’s worth making an effort to improve the indoor air quality. Ace Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning Inc., we offer expert indoor air quality services to residents of our community. Although you may not even realize it, there could be numerous contaminants floating around your home’s air at any given time. These pollutants include dust mites, mold spores, pollen, and multiple types of bacteria. While you’ll never be able to eliminate 100% of the airborne contaminants from your living space, you can eradicate a significant number of them by utilizing proven indoor air quality solutions. Doing so can allow you and everyone living in your household to breathe easier and avoid a variety of unpleasant symptoms.

    Why Is Indoor Air Quality Important?

    Unfortunately, indoor air quality is something that many homeowners regularly neglect. Because they can’t directly see the effects that poor air quality has, they tend to assume that it isn’t all that important. However, that isn’t the case. Even if you don’t know it’s happening, having too many pollutants in your air can cause many problems for you and your family. For one, if anyone in your household suffers from asthma or allergies, then the presence of dust mites, pollen, dander, mold spores, and other contaminants can greatly exacerbate the symptoms. Even without those common ailments, poor indoor air quality can cause respiratory problems, irritated eyes, nose, and throat, and other discomforts.

    Depending on your lifestyle, habits, and the area where your home is located, there are many different contaminants that may be found in your oxygen. Listed below are a handful of the most common airborne pollutants found in homes.

    • Mold spores
    • Dust mites
    • Bacteria and viruses
    • Asbestos
    • Dander
    • Radon
    • Nitrogen dioxide
    • Secondhand smoke
    • Cleaning chemicals
    • Formaldehyde
    • Pollen

    When they’re concentrated in your indoor air, each of these contaminant types can cause health issues for the inhabitants of your home. If you want to keep yourself and your family physically healthy in the long run, you should make a point to improve your home’s indoor air quality as soon as possible.

    Indoor Air Quality Solutions

    Every household is different, and when it comes to improving indoor air quality, every family has unique needs. Fortunately, we offer a variety of effective indoor air quality solutions. When you schedule an appointment with our skilled professionals, they’ll be glad to inspect your household, evaluate your needs, and help you figure out the best options to improve your indoor air quality.

    Air Purification Systems – Air purification systems are one of the most popular choices for improving indoor air quality in homes. At Ace Mechanical, our team can get you all set up with a high-quality system that will consistently remove the majority of the contaminants from your indoor air. When one of these air purification systems is running in your household, its built-in filtration system will work to pull many of the pollutants out of your home’s oxygen. These devices are very low-maintenance, convenient, and effective.

    Ultraviolet Lights – Another option for improving your indoor air quality is to implement ultraviolet lights into your home. If you’re interested in this method, our technicians will examine your HVAC system and determine the optimal UV lighting setup for your household. Then, we’ll install the new lights onto the HVAC unit, and they will immediately begin removing contaminants from the air. UV lights are very effective for killing mold and bacteria in your oxygen, removing unpleasant odors from your home, and reducing asthma symptoms.

    Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers – When most people think of poor air quality, they’re typically thinking about airborne contaminants. And while pollutants in the air have a huge impact on indoor air quality, they aren’t the only factor to consider. If there is too much or too little moisture in your home’s air, that can cause discomfort and health issues as well. During the winter months, the air tends to be drier, which can cause your skin to become dry and cracked. It can also cause dryness and discomfort in your throat, eyes, and nose. Plus, dry air can make breathing uncomfortable. When this happens in your home, using a humidifier can make a huge difference, allowing you to add moisture to the air. During the summer, on the other hand, the air tends to become naturally humid. And too much moisture in the air can cause respiratory problems, mold and mildew growth, and uncomfortable sweating. With a quality dehumidifier, though, you can remove the excess moisture from the air and eliminate those issues. At Ace Mechanical, we can get you set up with one or both of these devices to help keep your air at the ideal humidity level year-round.

    Ventilation – One of the most common causes of poor indoor air quality is a lack of proper ventilation. If your home isn’t well-ventilated, it allows your indoor air to become stagnant. As a result, many contaminants can linger in your home for prolonged periods. In addition to worsening the air quality, that stagnant oxygen can create unpleasant odors throughout the dwelling as well. At Ace Mechanical, we can assist you in improving your home’s ventilation, which will ensure that fresh air is allowed to regularly cycle through the household.

    Even if you aren’t certain that you have an indoor air quality problem, it’s worth scheduling an inspection with our expert team. We’ll be glad to closely examine your home and test your indoor air quality. From there, we can advise you on the most beneficial improvements to make and guide you in the process of creating a healthier home environment.
