Indoor Air Quality


Your home should be the safest place on earth for your family. It’s possible that the quality of the air you’re breathing would be the last item on your list of potential safety hazards. Yet indoor air quality (IAQ) is one of the top health concerns of the Environmental Protection Agency1, and their findings have been supported by the American Lung Association, The Consumer Product Safety Commission2 and other organizations.

The fact is that tighter home construction practices put in place in the 70s help conserve energy, but also lock airborne contaminants inside a home. According to the EPA, indoor air is typically 2-5 times more polluted than the air outside your home. Gasses from carpets, furniture, paint, cleaning chemicals, disinfectants, dust, mold and many more sources contribute to indoor air pollution. While Mother Nature cleanses outside air through weather, ionization and UV radiation, much in-home air goes untreated.

Fortunately, the home air quality experts at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning can provide indoor air quality solutions tailored to fit your situation. From duct cleaning services to whole-house air purification systems and even heating and cooling system redesign and installation, One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning can address your indoor air quality needs.

Our experienced team at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to perform a complete inspection of your home’s ventilation and air intake sources. We’ll evaluate your home’s ventilation, heating and cooling system and recommend necessary modifications if necessary to achieve optimal air flow. We’ll also check possible air pollution sources within your home, such as heating systems and stoves, and adjust so they’re working within a safe operating range. If necessary, we can install air filtration systems to eliminate pollutants and allergens.

One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning can convert your heating and cooling system into a whole house Air Treatment Center. To control indoor pollutants hazardous to your health, we can install an advanced air cleaning system like MicroPower Guard®, which can remove the smallest particles from the air. Installing OxyQuantum® UV lights will help control germs and organic odors.*

Our whole house Air Treatment Center can clean, disinfect and deodorize the air in your home all day, every day without chemicals. We can outline your options so you can decide which best fits your needs.

As the first step in a whole-house approach to air quality, the EPA recommends the inspection of your air ducts and heating and cooling systems inspected first by a professional heating and cooling technician. If your One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning technician discovers substantial visible mold, dirt and other contaminants, they may recommend duct cleaning.

Regular duct cleaning is a good practice, particularly if you have an asthma or allergy sufferer in your household. Dirt and dust accumulation in ductwork not only provides an excellent breeding ground for bacteria, molds and fungi, but it can also reduce the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.
