Did you know that the IAQ, also known as Indoor Air Quality, of your home can be anywhere from 2x-100x more polluted than the air outside? A few common symptoms that your indoor air quality is poor can be headaches, allergies, fatigue and sinus pressure. Your HVAC system can play a huge factor when it comes to IAQ. A dirty filter, dirty ductwork, and vents, can all contribute to poor indoor air quality. Luckily, our team can help you find ways to improve your indoor air quality, which may also help improve your family’s overall well-being.

How can G & R Heating and Air help with your Indoor Air quality?

We can come to your home and provide an indoor air quality test! We use a special device that can detect and give a score for your overall air quality. The results get sent right to our technicians iPad, and then we can go over the score with you and help you determine the best way to improve your air quality. This test can detect:

  • particulate matter
  • volatile organic compounds (VOCs)  
  • the temperature of your home and humidity levels
  • barometric pressure
  • carbon dioxide

How to improve your indoor air quality

After getting the rating of your indoor air quality, our technicians might recommend a few options. Routine filter changes and duct cleanings are a great way to keep dust, dirt, and particulate matter from building up on your HVAC system, ductwork and vents – especially if there are animals in the home.

You can also install additional indoor air quality equipment, that will quietly and reliably scrub the air flowing through your HVAC system and into your home. Our technicians recommend a whole home purification system called the iWave. Having an iWave installed is a great way to protect your HVAC system and improve the indoor air quality of your home. An iWave can help reduce particulate matter in your home by producing equal amounts of positive and negative ions, As these positive and negative ions flow through your system, they attach to each other. While attaching to each other, tbey bind together with the dust, dirt, and particulate matter floating in your system to so that way they can be easily trapped in your air filter. Sometimes particulate matter is so small that it will go right through your filter!

Our friendly staff looks forward to helping you improve your IAQ today! Call now to get on the schedule for your duct cleaning, or for us to install your iWave. You’ll be able to breathe better with less fatigue and headaches due to poor indoor air quality.
