Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Services
Indoor Air Quality Services
Indoor air quality has become an important issue today, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because people spend more time indoors than outdoors, the air they breathe needs to be taken into consideration.
Climatizing the Home
Air is invisible, and so are some of the contaminants that make it bad for health. Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality in a building or around it that has to do with the health and comfort of people and pets.
The statistics are that two out of three indoor air quality problems have to do with the bad operation of the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system. This makes it necessary to call in a trained technician in air conditioning to check out your air conditioning system once a year.
There are many models and systems around, but the best air conditioning system to improve the air quality in a home is an apparatus that makes no noise and works.
Choosing an HVAC System
In general, there are four types of air conditioners. The first is a portable air conditioning system that can be moved around according to your needs, although they are not very powerful. Most of these have a conduit that makes hot air go out through a window or doorway.
Another type is air conditioning that works with water evaporation. This type of system is cost-effective and consumes little energy, usually around 150 W. Yet, it can only cool a room about 4-6 degrees.
The third kind of air conditioner is a wall-mounted type split system, the best and most efficient system. It has two parts: an indoor element mounted on the wall and a compressor mounted outside the wall.
Many homes have whole-house HVAC systems that offer year-round comfort. These have become more energy-efficient over time and are now installed in most new homes.
With these systems, it’s important to remember to change the filters often. The more a system is used, the more the filters should be changed. Neglecting to do so can lead to increases in electricity bills and a shorter lifespan of the equipment.
