Air Quality

Air pollution is becoming a rising problem across the United States, especially in urban environments. Many people assume they’re safe when they enter their homes or office space because they are far away from traffic and smog. However, environmental contaminants can easily infiltrate our indoor spaces. Likewise, harmful particulates can be introduced from within our households and buildings as well due to factors like mold growth, lack of ventilation, use of chemical products, and pet dander. Thankfully, there are ways that property owners can improve their air quality, and the team at Zion Custom Air would like to help you stay healthy and dust-free.

Why Does Air Quality Matter?

We can often take clean air for granted because we don't see it or smell it. But there are many things that can impact the quality of our air and make it less clean. Most people are exposed to unhealthy levels of certain pollutants every day without even realizing it. From particulate matter in the air like dust, pollen, and mold spores to smog from passing traffic, contaminants are introduced to our indoor environments on a daily basis. Air pollution can cause a variety of conditions, including severe allergies and asthma attacks, which is why maintaining air quality is critical to good health.

Common Signs of Poor Air Quality

Air quality refers to the amount and type of pollutants in the air. It is measured by a variety of indicators, such as particulate matter, ground-level ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide. Here are some symptoms you might experience if routinely exposed to poor-quality air:

  • Dry eyes and irritated respiratory tract
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Chest tightness and coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nasal congestion or runny nose
  • General malaise
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sore throat

Services That Can Improve the Quality of Your Indoor Air

  • Air Conditioning

One of the most common ways to keep indoor air clean is with air conditioning. Air conditioning uses a coolant to lower the temperature of a room, which also lowers the relative humidity. This helps reduce mold and bacteria growth and makes it easier to breathe. Air conditioning systems are more efficient than they have ever been, but they still require regular maintenance to keep them running at peak performance. If you notice that your air conditioner is struggling to keep up, it may be time for an inspection from an expert who can make sure it's operating efficiently and safely.

  • Heating

A failing or poorly maintained heating system can also increase air pollutants. By investing in routine inspections and maintenance tasks, you can ensure that your property is comfortable and safe. We provide a variety of premium heating services that will help your unit stay effective and efficient long-term, so you can worry less about air quality while saving more money on your monthly bills.

  • Ductless Mini-Split

Ductless mini-split systems are a great option for improving the quality of indoor air. Since they don’t require ducts or vents to be installed throughout the home, there is less maintenance required to keep dust and other particulates out of the air. When paired with an air purifier, they provide excellent filtration and dehumidification capabilities. If you’re interested in a ductless mini-split system installation, or if you need repair or maintenance, call Zion Custom Air today.
