Indoor Air Quality 101
Indoor Air Quality is important to you as a consumer for numerous reasons, but probably the most important is, health. Indoor Air Quality is something that should be on the forefront of everyone’s mind as they enter a store or website to purchase their furnace filter or any other materials needed to keep their air clean. Want to learn more about what you should know when it comes to air quality? You came to the right website, because we have been working in the heating and air conditioning business for many years, and that means unbiased experience and advice for you as you make your product selections.
Fist things first, if you fear your indoor air quality is below par, one tell-all sign is breathing issues. Do you have asthma? Allergies? Airborn particulates and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) make air quality worse and are the triggers for your allergies and asthma attacks. Another sign is odors. Bioaerosols in your home can linger and cause an unattractive odor build-up as well as induce a musty smell if humidity is above 55%. More than just a unpleasant smell, if your air quality is too humid, it can easily lead to a mold growth in your home. As you have probably seen on the news, “black mold” can destroy the value of a home and leave you with a very messy situation. This is not a scare tactic to cause you to purchase more products from our store – this is reality and we want you to be conscious of what can happen to you or your home from poor air quality.
In our humble opinion, knowledge is power, and the more you know the better decisions you can make. We have written and sourced numerous helpful articles in our Resource Center to give you the information needed to take control of your air quality issues at home.
We have personally installed and used every product that you see on our website; that means everything you see is something we’ve tested and something we loved. Your specific needs will determine which replacement furnace filter to choose. We’re happy to help you select the right filter – just send us an email!
