Indoor Air Quality Services in San MarcosHome is the center of our world. It’s where we do all of our daily activities. Even though we do these things to relax and escape the dangers of the outside world, pollutants still find their way into our homes and begin to accumulate. As these pollutants persist in your home over time, your home starts to feel more uncomfortable and can even cause serious health concerns.

The good news is that there are a number of different ways to attack these allergens and pollutants. Air quality products generally fall into the three major categories: Air Purification, Humidity Control, and Ventilation.

Identifying problems with your home’s indoor air

It will always be difficult to detect problems in the air if you don’t know what to look for. Signs do exist, however, that indicate problems.

Common signs of low air quality include:
  • Condensation on windows
  • Discoloration of walls or ceilings
  • Peeling or chipping of paint
  • Breathing easier in other places than in your own home
  • Musty odors
  • Loose drywall tape
  • Wood warping

Once detected, there are three main categories of air quality solutions that we can help you purchase and install as proud dealers of Lennox products:

Air purification systems

These systems work to remove contaminants in the air of your home. An air purification system may be the best choice for air quality if you are looking to:

  • Control allergens & other contaminants
  • Reduce/eliminate second-hand tobacco smoke

Humidity control systems

These can regulate the humidity levels in your home to keep at a comfortable level, which usually lies somewhere between 30% and 60% humidity. Humidity control systems are ideal for homeowners looking to reduce or eliminate:

  • Wood warping
  • Musty smells
  • Peeling or chipping paint
  • Discoloring walls and ceilings
  • Condensation on windows

Ventilation Systems

Ventilation System Repair in San MarcosAnother option to really optimize air quality might be the installation of a new ventilation system. If the quality of air in your home is too humid or contains many contaminants, it may be that your ventilation system is too old or improperly sealed. Once a new system is installed, you will only be using the same amount of energy or less than you were using before the installation. This is the most energy-efficient option.

Our HVAC specialists are happy to assess your home’s indoor air quality and provide the solutions you need, whether you are in Escondido, San Marcos, Carlsbad, Rancho Bernardo or anywhere in North County.
