Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality in and around your facility, according to the EPA, and it relates to how it affects the health and safety of your facility’s occupants. For example, a facility with poor indoor air quality can expose its occupants to pollutants, allergens, and bacteria. This exposure can lead to immediate side effect such as irritated eyes, nose, and throat; headaches; dizziness; and fatigue. It can also lead to long-term side effects such as heart disease, cancer, and certain respiratory diseases.


One easy way to improve your facility’s IAQ through HVAC is to clean and change your system’s air filters regularly. You should change them at least once per season, but monthly is better. You should also have an HVAC service provider regularly inspect and repair your system through annual maintenance visits to increase your facility’s indoor air comfort. When your HVAC system receives regular high-quality maintenance, your facility will have fewer indoor air quality problems.

How Indoor Air Quality Services Can Improve Your HVAC System

Indoor air quality services can improve the safety of your facility by ensuring your HVAC system sends clean, healthy air throughout the building. For example, IAQ duct services include air duct cleaning, dryer vent cleaning, and making sure the proper amount of outdoor air enters and circulates through the building. These services can make sure your facility receives proper air circulation through adequate ventilation.

The Energy Benefits of Indoor Air Quality Services

Maintaining good indoor air quality through IAQ services offers multiple environmental and energy-related benefits. First, using HVAC system and air duct cleaning services to improve your IAQ can lower your monthly energy bills. Indoor air quality services have this effect because clean HVAC equipment and duct systems don’t have to work harder to distribute and ventilate air the way neglected systems do. Second, they can reduce your facility’s environmental impact by reducing carbon monoxide and other emissions. These benefits help keep your building’s occupants and the area around it safe and healthy.
