The air inside of your home plays a big role in your overall comfort. Poor indoor air quality can undermine your home comfort, even if your HVAC system is made for optimal temperature control. That’s why it is best to get in touch with a professional to assess your indoor air quality to help you find the best solutions to comfort problems.

You can trust our team to handle your indoor air quality services in Coeur d’Alene, ID, from helping choose the best system to combat IAQ issues to getting it installed. Here are three options to consider when you need to improve the air in the house.

1. Consider installing an air purifier or air filtration system

Can you see dust floating around your house? Then it may mean that you need a little extra help filtering the air through your home. The use of an air filtration system or an air purification system can be a great way to combat this. Both of these systems can be installed in your ductwork where they will process all of the air flowing through your ducts.

Air filtration systems will filter them through a semi-permeable membrane. An air purification system will use UV light or electricity to destroy, break down, or remove contaminants from the air in your home. These systems can help address unwanted particles like dust, fur, pollen, mold spores, and even viruses or bacteria.

2. Add a humidifier or dehumidifier

Having trouble with humidity in your home? Or maybe you struggle with dry air more than excess humidity. Both of these issues can lead to indoor air quality issues that undermine your overall comfort. Thankfully, they can also be resolved with a whole-house humidifier or whole-house dehumidifier.

A dehumidifier will help remove excess moisture from the air in the house, reducing the risk of mold growth and making it easier to keep cool in the summer. A humidifier will help combat dry air in the winter, balancing things out with just the right amount of humidity to make it easier to keep things warmer.

3. Have ductwork sealed or repaired

Last but not least, make sure to keep track of how your ducts are doing. Your ductwork serves as the pathway for the conditioned air that floats through your home. That means if something goes wrong with your ducts, it will make it a lot harder to keep things comfortable. What’s more, duct leaks can allow dirty air to enter the air flowing into the home which ends up making your indoor air quality worse!

If you suspect any leaks or holes may be present in your ductwork then it is best to have your duct system examined. From there, a professional technician can provide duct sealing or duct repairs that will address the problem effectively.
