IAQ

For years, we’ve been told about the dangers of air pollution, and how every long shower we take and every light we leave on is contributing to the downfall of Earth. But very rarely are we told of the dangers of indoor air pollution, the sneaky kind that you can’t see. Perhaps you’ve noticed a funky smell in your home, but after investigating the contents of your fridge, you can’t seem to find the source. Or maybe your child’s allergies have been acting up more, prompting you to spend far too much money on Zyrtec. It’s possible that your indoor air quality, or IAQ, is to blame.

Did you know that indoor air is 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air? In fact, most of our exposure to environmental pollutants comes from inside the home. And because people spend 90% of their time indoors (which is a slightly alarming statistic… but we love TV as much as the next person), it’s important to ensure that your indoor air quality is not being compromised by fixable issues.

That’s where Air Express comes in. We offer a wide range of IAQ services in Tampa, from advanced filtration to UV lights to duct cleaning/replacement. We are committed to the health and happiness of all of our customers, which is why we always recommend IAQ services on top of AC repair and installation. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to simply maintain your air conditioner. It’s important to invest in your indoor air quality, just as you invest in the cleanliness of your home.

You’ve likely been told about the importance of changing your air filter. We don’t want to diminish that, but we do want to recommend a more advanced version of your everyday filter: an electronic air cleaner. This device works to remove 99% of the particulates floating around your home and degrading your IAQ. Those rectangular white filters you’re used to are only equipped to filter out 1-2% of particulates… not the most effective solution. You can read more about filtration, and our recommendation, here!

If you’re looking for an advanced solution to keeping your indoor clean of particulates, as well as VOC’s (volatile organic compounds… AKA gases emitted from certain liquids and gases), we recommend installing a PCO light. UV lights are also a great way to keep your Tampa air conditioner clean and properly functioning! Read more about these lights here.

Ducts associated with your Tampa AC system, whether they’re dirty or poorly installed, are frequently the culprits of poor IAQ. We offer services such as duct cleaning and duct replacement, which can drastically improve the quality of air in your home.

In conclusion, make sure you’re protecting the health of your loved ones by taking all possible measures to improve your IAQ. At the very least, you’ll save money on allergy medicine!

  1. I had no idea that most of the pollutants that we are exposed to come from inside the home. This is really important to make sure that your family is being safe. My fiance and I will keep this in mind as we look into an air quality service.
