Let’s Talk Indoor Air Quality

Let’s Chat About indoor air quality

Indoor air quality or IAQ is a term thrown about loosely in the HVAC industry, but what does it mean for you?

Home comfort is more than just the temperature of your air.  Humidity, dust, pollens, smoke,  pollutants and even bacteria will all affect your overall comfort even if you don’t realize it.  With a full indoor air quality consultation you can love indoors more than you ever though was possible.


First let’s talk humidity.

In Colorado dry air is a huge problem with indoor air quality. Humidity levels here are well below what would be considered to be “normal.” Humidity levels in the 30s are considered comfortable and these often drop to the single digits here in winter. This results in a lot of unpleasant symptoms including: dry skin. bloody noses, dry sinuses that are more susceptible to infection, itchy eyes and sore throats.

It is easy to combat these symptoms with a whole house humidifier. While room humidifiers will do the job, they are difficult to maintain and cannot be set to ideal percentages. With whole house humidifiers, you can set it and forget it and greatly increase your indoor air quality! Click here to read more.
