When it comes to staying comfortable in Southwest Florida, keeping your home cool isn't the only challenge. You may not be aware of it, but poor indoor air quality (IAQ) is a real problem for many homeowners in Naples, Venice, Ft. Myers, Englewood, Port Charlotte, Sarasota, Bradenton, North Venice, FL, and the surrounding areas.
Is Unhealthy Air Making You Sick and Tired?
Everyone feels a little off from time to time, especially on sticky, sweltering summer days. If you often find yourself feeling tired, ill, or just plain uncomfortable at home, however, there may be a deeper problem. Common airborne pollutants — consisting mostly of microscopic particulates, pathogens, and volatile gases — can dramatically lower your home's indoor air quality. This, in turn, can have serious consequences for your health. Even worse, the warning signs are often subtle and easy to miss.
- Eye, nose, and throat irritation
- Chronic respiratory issues
- Headaches, nausea, and fatigue
- Worsening asthma and allergy symptoms
- Excessive dust in the air or on surfaces
- Dirty, dusty air vents and HVAC filters
Attack IAQ Problems With Advanced Air Filtration
Because poor air quality is often caused by airborne particulates, air filtration is usually the first line of defense. Ordinary HVAC filters catch larger particles fairly effectively, but they offer little protection against smaller, more harmful contaminants. To truly safeguard your home and your family, consider upgrading with a dedicated whole-home air cleaner or air purifier.
At Conditioned Air, our HVAC experts can help you find the perfect treatment for your needs. One solution we highly recommend is the Trane CleanEffects Air Cleaner, which uses ultra-efficient filtration media to eliminate over 99% of particulates. The Lennox PureAir Air Purification System is also remarkably effective, removing, or neutralizing particulates, microorganisms, chemical vapors, unpleasant odors, and more.
Conditioned Air’s Complete Indoor Air Quality Solutions
While improved filtration is a critical first step, poor indoor air quality is a complex problem that often requires multiple solutions. For instance, your HVAC system can actually foster organic growth and spread microscopic germs throughout your home. To prevent this, we recommend germicidal UVC light sanitizers to neutralize microorganisms and other organic pollutants within your HVAC system.
Another issue in many homes is inadequate ventilation, inhibiting the exchange of air needed to keep indoor spaces fresh. Whole-home ventilators solve this problem by continually refreshing the air without making your home less comfortable or energy-efficient. Indoor humidity can also impact air quality in several important ways, making a whole-house dehumidifier a valuable investment for homes in Southwest Florida.
