Your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) is more important today than ever as we all spend more time at home. You may not realize the things in your home that can lead to poor indoor air quality, and the negative impact poor IAQ can have on your health. With the help of Duct Professor Heating & Cooling, you can find out if you have poor IAQ and what can be done to improve it.
As homes have become more energy-efficient, they’ve also become more airtight. This means little fresh air gets into our homes. As a result, toxins and other pollutants that once easily escaped are now trapped inside. Some common effects of poor indoor air quality include:
- Itchy eyes
- Sore throat
- Coughing, sneezing or other allergy-like symptoms
- Nausea or dizziness
If you notice that you regularly experience any of these symptoms after being home for a short while, chances are there is something wrong with your home’s air quality.

The good news is that most of the time, poor IAQ issues can be resolved. Duct Professor Heating & Cooling can do a comprehensive assessment of your home’s air and propose the right solution to rectify it. Some of our services that improve air quality are:
- Duct cleaning. One of the biggest causes of poor air quality is ductwork filled with dust, spores and other contaminants. After we clean your ductwork, not only will you breathe easier, you’ll likely see less dust in your home. We can also clean your dryer vent, which will allow moisture to exhaust more easily and help your clothes dry faster.
- Humidifier installation. Air that is too dry or too moist can lead to health issues. We offer de-humidifier and humidifier installation to achieve the right humidity level for your home and family.
- Air purification systems. Air purifiers, sometimes referred to as air cleaners, actually remove contaminants from the air. Contaminants can come from cooking, new paint, your carpet and many other components in your home. Air purification systems and UV light can make the air you breathe cleaner.
