Why the Indoor Air Quality of Your Las Vegas Area Home or Business Matters So Much
Do you, your family, or your co-workers seem to get sick a lot? Have you noticed any strange odors in your home or business? Good indoor air quality is very important, yet most of us rarely think about it. From allergy-like symptoms to more than average bouts of sickness to just feeling tired and run down, your body may be trying to tell you something.
Indoor Air Quality in the Las Vegas Area
With windows and doors constantly closed in the hot summer months and usually shut in the cool wintertime, the indoor air you breathe doesn’t get much of a chance to be renewed. According to the EPA, the levels of indoor air pollutants are often two to five times higher than outdoor levels, and in some cases can exceed 100 times that of outdoor levels! In fact, the EPA has ranked indoor air pollution as one of the top 5 environmental dangers facing our planet!

Knowledge is power, and you may find that your indoor air quality is great! But if not, it’s good to know there’s a problem and how to get it taken care of. Some of the most common indoor air pollutants and toxins include:
Improving Your Air Quality
Whether its removing mold from bathrooms, asbestos from ceilings or lead from painted surfaces, once the source of the problem is removed, air scrubbing systems can be put in place to remove fumes, toxins, allergens, and other irritants while pumping in fresh, clean air. Dirty or clogged air filters make your heating, cooling and venting system work poorly and be unable to trap pollen and other airborne debris. But while microscopic irritants suspended in the air are first addressed by your filters, other air-scrubbing components may be needed to adequately deal with living airborne pathogens in your home or building.
Sometimes referred to as ‘negative air machines’, air scrubbers installed in the main forced air return duct of your existing heating / cooling / HVAC system flow air through a titanium dioxide-coated honeycomb matrix and a strong UV germicidal light. The UV light disrupts the DNA of any airborne contaminants, causing them to die. While air filters can trap pollutants, only air purification systems such as air scrubbers actually kill the contaminants and pathogens in the air.
Keeping Air Clean
Testing of your indoor air quality should be a part of your annual heating / cooling / HVAC checkup that includes your furnace, A/C unit, heat pump, ductless mini-split, and any other climate control system components. Call Anderson Air Mechanical today to schedule your free air quality assessment.
