Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Determining the quality of indoor air can be challenging due to the absence of immediate, visible indicators. Unlike outdoor pollution, which often manifests through smog or visible emissions, indoor air pollutants are largely invisible and odorless. You might not even realize you are experiencing symptoms related to poor indoor air quality, which is why it is important to review common warning signs of a problem.

You may need our Lakewood indoor air quality services if you are experiencing one or more of the following issues: 

  • Persistent allergies or respiratory problems. Frequent sneezing, coughing, congestion, asthma attacks, or difficulty breathing can signal pollutants or allergens like dust, mold, pet dander, or pollen circulating indoors.
  • Unusual odors or stale air. Persistent musty or foul smells can suggest mold growth or the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Stale air might suggest inadequate ventilation, trapping pollutants inside.
  • Increased dust and particle buildup. Excessive dust on surfaces or floating in the air, especially near vents or in areas with little to no traffic, points to poor filtration or air circulation.
  • Humidity issues. High humidity levels can foster mold growth and dust mites, while low humidity can exacerbate respiratory conditions and cause discomfort.
  • Health symptoms that improve outside the home. If symptoms like headaches, fatigue, dizziness, or nausea improve when leaving your home, the building’s air quality may be to blame.

How Can I Improve My Colorado Home’s Indoor Air Quality?

What options do you have for improving the quality of the air in your home? Far more than you realize. You don’t have to worry about finding the right solution to optimal indoor air quality in your house –that’s where our team shines. We will inspect your home, determine the underlying cause of any indoor air quality issues, and implement tailored solutions you can count on.

At Apple Aire, we carry, install, and perform:

  • Air duct cleaning. Over time, air ducts can accumulate a significant amount of dust and debris, which can negatively affect air quality and potentially lead to health issues for inhabitants, especially those with respiratory conditions or allergies. When you schedule air duct cleaning, our technicians will use specialized blowers, vacuums, and brushes to clean out the supply, intake, and return ducts throughout your home. We can also clean various components of your HVAC system, including the air handler, registers, grilles, fans, motors, housings, and coils.
  • Air filtration systems and air purifiers. Air filtration systems and air purifiers both target pollutants and allergens. These systems operate by circulating indoor air through filters or purification processes that capture or neutralize airborne particles such as dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria, and viruses. Air filtration systems, often integrated into HVAC systems, use filters with varying degrees of efficiency, denoted by their Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating. Filters with higher MERV ratings can capture smaller particles, significantly reducing the number of airborne contaminants circulating through the home. We install, service, and maintain extremely effective whole-house filtration systems that come with extended equipment warranties. Air purifiers take indoor air quality management a step further by actively removing pollutants from the air in a specific room or throughout the house. They employ various technologies, such as High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters, activated carbon, ultraviolet (UV) light, and ionizers. HEPA filters are highly effective at capturing microscopic particles, while activated carbon filters excel at removing odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). UV light purifiers can kill bacteria and viruses, offering an additional layer of protection against airborne pathogens. We can evaluate your concerns – and your family’s risk factors – to help determine and deliver the best possible solution for your home.
  • Humidifiers. Excessively dry air, a common issue during colder months when heating systems are in constant use, can exacerbate respiratory symptoms, cause dry skin, and increase susceptibility to colds and infections. A whole-house humidifier integrates seamlessly with your existing HVAC system, distributing moisture evenly throughout every room to maintain an ideal humidity level, typically between 30% and 50%. These systems help in preserving the natural moisture of the skin and respiratory tract, which is essential for mitigating health issues related to dry air. Additionally, maintaining optimal humidity levels can protect home furnishings from damage caused by dry conditions, such as wood cracking and static electricity buildup. Our team is dedicated to assisting you with the selection, installation, and maintenance of whole-house humidifiers.
  • Heat and energy recovery ventilators. Both heat recovery ventilators and energy recovery ventilators work by exchanging stale, polluted indoor air with fresh, filtered outdoor air. The primary difference between the two lies in their treatment of humidity and energy transfer. While heat recovery ventilators conserve energy by retaining heat from outgoing air in colder months, energy recovery ventilators also transfer moisture, making them ideal for homes in climates with extreme winters or summers, as they can reduce the load on air conditioning and heating systems by pre-conditioning the incoming air. These systems are particularly beneficial for homes that are tightly sealed for energy efficiency, as they provide a continuous supply of fresh air, which is crucial for maintaining healthy indoor air quality. They can help reduce the levels of indoor pollutants, including VOCs, allergens, and other airborne particles, by preventing the accumulation of stale air and promoting better ventilation. Our Lakewood indoor air quality services include help with the selection, installation, and maintenance of these systems.
  • Radon testing and mitigation. Radon is a colorless, odorless, and radioactive gas that naturally emanates from the earth's soil and can accumulate in homes, particularly in basements and ground floors that are in contact with or close to the ground. Radon exposure can cause lung cancer, so its detection and reduction are paramount to indoor air quality and health. Testing for radon is the only way to confirm its presence in a home, as it cannot be detected by human senses. Our technicians can test your home’s radon levels and advise whether mitigation measures are necessary. Mitigation involves installing systems designed to reduce radon levels, such as sub-slab depressurization, which prevents radon from entering the home by venting it outside. Other techniques include sealing cracks in floors and walls and increasing the ventilation in the house using air purifiers and ventilators.

If all of this seems overwhelming, that’s why we’re here. No matter your home’s needs, we’ll help you choose and install the right indoor air quality solutions. We’ll also replace any of these systems when they reach the end of their service lives.
