Why Choose Us For Indoor Air Quality Services in Middletown, OH?

Having cool air when it’s hot outside, and warm air when it’s cold is just one aspect of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. In addition to comfort, the quality of air in a dwelling is also important. The air we breathe is said to be the essence of life and well-being. Because it is so essential, Middletown Heating & Cooling strives to offer its customers complete control over Indoor Air Quality in addition to comfort in their homes.

What is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor Air Quality is an all-too-important issue that all-too-often gets overlooked or neglected in many homes. Although a lot of homeowners believe air pollution is strictly an outdoor problem, studies indicate this is not the case. It turns out the air inside a lot of workplaces and homes is far more polluted and toxic than the air outside.

Because the average American spends more than 21 hours a day indoors on average, air quality deserves serious consideration and attention. Because the air indoors often lacks proper filtration, indoor air quality is something customers need to be taking seriously.

The EPA defines Indoor Air Quality as the quality of air inside a building or home and how it relates to the people inside the building or home. In general, Indoor Air Quality has a tangible and sometimes profoundly negative effect on our health in addition to our overall well-being, mood and energy levels.

Why Is Indoor Air Quality Important?

With most Americans spending most of their time indoors, the air quality inside their homes has far more of an impact on them than most people realize. If the quality of air in a dwelling isn’t sufficient, it can have a negative impact on health and the home itself.

Studies show the air in a lot of modern dwellings can be four or even five times as polluted or toxic as outdoor air, where nature has a wide range of natural ways to clean it and purify it and recycle it. When you realize how air tight and insulated almost all modern homes and workplaces are intentionally made, it becomes a little more clear why HVAC experts and health officials advise homeowners to consider certain indoor air quality products in conjunction with their HVAC equipment.

Because modern residences are supposed to be sealed rather airtight, if indoor pollution occurs it can get trapped inside and recirculated in the absence of proper filtration and ventilation. Then, on top of that, there can also be issues with humidity, mold and mildew.

4 Benefits of Whole-Home Dehumidifiers

  • A Healthier Home

    A whole-home dehumidifier is a particularly good idea for older people and those with compromised immune systems because they could be more vulnerable to harmful bacteria. Since these devices have filters, they can also help you remove dirt, dust, pollen, pet dander, and other contaminants from your home’s air.

  • Increased Comfort

    A whole-home dehumidifier will keep your home from feeling stuffy or clammy. It can also help you remove excess moisture from cooking or showering. More affordable portable dehumidifiers are available, but they typically work in one or two rooms at once. Most portable dehumidifiers require you to empty the water collector every day or two also. You’ll also have to clean or change the filter regularly. Whole-home dehumidifiers send excess water to a drain through a hose, and some use a pump. That way, you can enjoy comfortable humidity levels without adding to your household chores.

  • Damage Prevention

    High humidity encourages pests and biological growth. It could also damage wallpaper, carpeting, ceilings, or drywall. You could also have to deal with bad smells, rotting wood, or peeling paint. Managing the humidity in your home will help you avoid expensive repairs and increase the value of your home.

  • Energy Savings

    Many whole-home dehumidifiers are connected to a hygrometer or humidity monitor, and you can set them to come on automatically when your humidity gets too high. Some programmable thermostats incorporate humidity monitors and the ability to control HVAC accessories like whole-home dehumidifiers. A whole-home dehumidifier is a significant investment, but most people appreciate the increased comfort and understand they will get their money back through energy savings. A whole-home dehumidifier can increase the value of your home as well.
