Follow our checklist below and call us at 262-783-6000 for more air quality solutions.

What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?

Contaminants such as dirt, dust, dander, and pet hair are some of the most common culprits. However, your furniture and even simple daily activities like cooking and cleaning can cause pollution by releasing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like gases into the air. In some cases, your air can also be polluted with mold, mildew, viruses, and bacteria.

How to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home Right Now

Replace Your Air Filter

Your air filter’s job is to capture airborne contaminants as they pass through your ducts. By replacing standard filters every one to three months (or high-efficiency filters every six to 12 months), you can ensure that it catches as many pollutants as possible. It’s a simple but powerful tip that can help you achieve better air quality—and help your heating and cooling systems keep air flowing smoothly.

Dust and Vacuum Regularly

Like the previous tip, some of the most effective solutions are the simplest ones. Putting some elbow grease into cleaning the house—whether it’s vacuuming the floors, dusting blinds and ceiling fans, or frequently doing laundry—can help cut down on indoor pollutants.

Consider Installing Whole-Home Air Quality Systems

Adding home comfort systems like air purifiers, ionizers, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers go a long way to creating a healthier indoor environment. They’re easy, effective, and easy to install—just ask one of our home air quality specialists.

Systems like these work alongside your furnace and air conditioner to improve the air. A purifier, for example, captures and kills VOCs while humidifiers and dehumidifiers control moisture levels in your home, whether eliminating problems with dry skin or pollutants that thrive in humid air.

Schedule a Radon Test

Radon is an odorless, colorless, and toxic natural gas that can leak into your home from the soil around it. Without proper ventilation, it can build up and cause serious health problems. Fortunately, radon testing is one of our specialties. The experts here at Gross Heating are state certified in radon mitigation and removal. We can test your home, recommend appropriate solutions for any problems, and install the necessary equipment to keep your family safe and healthy.
