Indoor Air Quality

Home Comfort and Indoor Air Quality Solutions from Air Management Services

What is Your IAQ? Below are some common questions and solutions to your home’s indoor air quality issues:

  • Do you have pets in your home?
  • Does anyone in your home smoke?
  • Does anyone in your family suffer from allergies, asthma or breathing difficulties?

  • Do you ever suffer from a dry throat, dry skin or experience static electricity in your home?

    • If the air in your home is too dry, it has the potential to damage woodwork – not to mention the symptoms of dry skin and static electricity. A Whole-Home humidifier system can be the solution to dry air in your home.
  • Do cooking or other odors tend to linger in your home?

    • If odors linger in your home, or air in your home feels stale, it may be a sign that your home isn’t getting as much fresh air as it needs. A Fresh Air Ventilation System can help.
  • Do you use anti-bacterial household products like soap or cleaners?

  • Have you ever purchased or used portable (plug-in) room air cleaners or humidifiers to relieve symptoms of unclean or dry air?

    • If you’ve ever purchased portable (plug-in) air cleaners or humidifiers to relieve symptoms of unclean or dry air, you know that they can be expensive and inconvenient. Why not trap the air in your entire home – invisible and more effectively with a Whole-Home comfort and indoor air quality solution. Whole-Home solutions work with your heating and cooling equipment to:

      • Zap airborne bacteria (UV Treatment)
      • Trap airborne particles (Air Cleaner)
      • Moisturize the air in your entire home (Humidifier)
      • Control comfort (Thermostats & Zoning)
  • Are there some rooms in you home that are uncomfortable or that vary dramatically in temperature? (Ex: too hot upstairs, too cool downstairs)

    • If you have rooms in your home with varying temperatures and are often uncomfortable, consider installing a Zoning System.
  • Do you regularly program your thermostat for energy savings?

    • If you want to decrease your utility bills, consider a programmable thermostat.
  • Has it been more than a year since you had your heating and cooling system cleaned and inspected?

    • If it’s been more than a year since you’ve had your heating and cooling system cleaned and inspected; call Air Management Services for an appointment.
