Reducing Exposure to Indoor Air Pollutants

At Kyzar Air Conditioning, Inc. in West Palm Beach, we specialize in keeping your home comfortable no matter the outdoor weather conditions. However, we’re also concerned about the quality of your indoor air. Any air pollutants that are floating around inside your residence can be inhaled into your body. This could lead to various health issues, especially for people with allergies or asthma concerns. It’s important to keep the air in your home clean and pure.

Some Common Contaminants

On a sunny day, the light streaming through the window can reveal a variety of particles floating around. Dead skin cells and pet dander make up a significant portion of the dust in your home. Pollen grains from trees, flowers, and weeds can be tracked in during the allergy season. The humid air in Florida encourages the growth of molds that release spores. All of these can contribute to an unhealthy atmosphere.

Another issue is less obvious. Consider the numerous chemicals that enter your home. Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are produced from several sources. Spray cleaning and beauty products release chemicals when used. Plastics, paints, and adhesives slowly release chemicals into the air as they break down. Even the common act of cooking, especially with oil, releases microdroplets into the air.

Cleaning Up the Air Supply

Filtration, purification, and ventilation are the three main strategies when it comes to cleaning the air in your home.

Air filters catch small particles like pollen and dander as they travel through your ductwork. During the spring and summer, you may want to change your home filters more frequently. If someone has a serious allergy problem, a room air filter can make the space even cleaner.

The technicians at Kyzar Air Conditioning, Inc. can install the latest in air purification technology in your home. These systems use ultraviolet light to kill viruses and bacteria. They may also use a chemical catalyst to remove VOCs.

Proper ventilation ensures the exchange of stale indoor air and for fresh outdoor air. In humid areas like Florida, however, it is not always practical to open a window. An energy-recovery ventilator can bring fresh air into your home without raising the humidity.
