Effective Ways We Can Improve Your Air Quality

There are a number of causes that lead to poor indoor air quality. Some common pollutants like pollen, dust mites, and pet dander are the most obvious contributors. However, the more serious concerns can stem from inadequacies caused by poor ventilation and moisture that exposes you to mold and mildew. Improperly vented combustion appliances and fireplaces can cause carbon monoxide poisoning, while building materials containing asbestos, formaldehyde and lead could put you in a life-threatening situation that you may not even be aware of until it's too late. That's why it is important to have the indoor air quality experts from Bradley Mechanical help you detect these potential dangers sooner rather than later so we can offer you the right indoor air quality solution.

At Bradley Mechanical, we improve indoor air quality through a variety of tactics, such as:

  • Air duct cleaning. This helps keep pollutants such as bacteria, dust, pet hair and other allergens out of your ductwork. It can also help protect you from breathing in harmful contaminants like mold and mildew.
  • Air filters. We recommend changing your air filter as often as every few months to not only improve your air quality but to also cut down on energy use and prolong the life of your HVAC equipment.
  • Air purifiers. Electronic air cleaners are great at removing harmful pollutants from the air. Pollutants like allergens, mold, smoke and even viruses can be removed from the air using whole-house purifiers incorporated into your heating and air system.
  • Indoor air quality monitors. These systems help keep you safe by monitoring various gases and pollutants that could be lingering in or entering your home.
  • Dehumidifiers. Controlling the humidity in your home is essential to improving indoor air quality. Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air that mold and mildew thrive on.
  • Proper HVAC ventilation. Using window fans, attic fans and whole-house ventilators help protect you from exposure to airborne pollutants.
