Indoor Air Quality
AAA Northgate: Your Gateway to Home Comfort
Comfort All Year Long
Is the Air in Your Home Safe to Breathe?
This air quality statistic might surprise you: the average person spends 90 percent of their time indoors, whether it’s at home, at school, or at work, and according to the EPA, indoor air can have two to five times the concentration of air pollutants than outdoor air.
Today, many people are being forced to spend more time in your houses than ever before. That’s what makes indoor air quality (or IAQ) a priority for Illinois homeowners and their families. AAA Northgate offers home air quality tests and a number of clean air solutions and services that can help make your indoor air healthier and safer.
The Importance of Indoor Air Quality in Your Central Illinois Home
Is your Peoria-area home air really healthy? What do you know about your house’s air pollution levels of:
VOCs (Volatile Organic Chemicals, often found in cleaning products)
Viruses, germs, and bacteria
Some pollutants, such as carbon monoxide (CO), are a result of improperly-burned or vented fuels from your heating system. CO is a harmful gas that has no color, smell, or taste, but CO detectors are a simple and reliable way to alert you to CO problems, as is regular maintenance of your heating system. An energy audit can also identify problems with poorly operating space and water heating equipment.
Other chemical pollutants that you might be living with can cause irritated eyes, noses and throats, and can make asthma symptoms worse for some people. Pet dander, mold, and other biological pollutants can also contribute to allergic reactions and respiratory problems like asthma.
Cutting Edge Indoor Air Quality Solutions for Your Home
AAA Northgate can help identify poor IAQ and airborne allergens. Your best bet towards improving IAQ is to eliminate the source. That’s not always an option, though, due to cost or circumstance. To help keep your home air healthy and your home comfort high, we offer services to test the air quality in your home and many different kinds of indoor air quality related systems to serve the unique situations in every home.
UV light air sterilization systems, which connect to your central ductwork have been shown to dramatically reduce the amount of viruses, bacteria, and other toxic contaminants in your home.
Air purifiers and top MERV-rated air filters prevent allergens and pollutants from recirculating through your central air system.
Dehumidifiers and humidifiers help keep humidity at safe levels in your home and avoid moisture buildup and mold growth.
Smart thermostat and other HVAC controls give you unprecedented control over the different systems in your home, including IAQ equipment.
HOW DOES INDOOR AIR QUALITY AFFECT MY HOME & FAMILY?
Buildings are being built airtight to conserve energy, however, when air is trapped in your home, pollutants become trapped as well.
The air you breathe in your home is strongly connected to your health and wellbeing. When you and your family breathe air that’s free of pollutants, it can lead to a lower risk of respiratory illnesses, and a higher quality of life.
WHAT CAN I DO TO IMPROVE THE IAQ IN MY HOME?
Our professional HVAC technicians can convert your heating and cooling system into an advanced air cleaning system. These systems work hard to clean and disinfect the air in your home, helping your family to breathe easier.
WHAT BRANDS OF IAQ SYSTEMS DO YOU INSTALL?
AAA Northgate is proud to install the highest-rated indoor air quality systems like iWave, Aprilaire, IQair and APCO-X Fresh-Aire UV. Our team can help you decide which system works better for you, your home and your budget.
