Indoor Air Quality Testing & Products in Houston, League City and Surrounding Areas
At Maxx A/C & Heating, we are prepared to not only service your HVAC equipment but to evaluate your airstream and the level of pollutants inside your home. Indoor air quality testing has become an integral part of creating healthy homes and offices. High levels of cleaning chemicals, animal dander, dust, mold, and mildew in our breathing space, have been found to trigger allergies and aggravate asthma. Maxx’s air quality testing will provide you with the data necessary for you to make an informed decision about how to boost your indoor air quality.
How Does Indoor Air Quality Testing Work?
HVAC systems, ductwork, and the structure of your building play a role in the quality of air you breathe. We begin by collecting a sample of air which is then analyzed to identify the components and detect any unwanted pollutants. Testing allows our Maxx specialists to determine the solutions needed to manage your air quality:
A purification system can work with your HVAC equipment in the removal of solid particulates from the air supply. Electronic units are ideal for more frequent circulation of your air supply, and germicidal systems are particularly helpful for trapping and killing biomaterials such as bacteria, viruses, and mold.
Mechanical ventilation equipment is important for moving fresh air into the home and polluted air out. A recovery system can promote energy efficiency by recapturing energy from the outgoing supply.
High humidity levels can be a serious concern for those living in League City, Pearland, and Friendswood, TX, air cleaning equipment like dehumidifiers may help to inhibit mold growth while improving home comfort levels during the summer months in our area.
Air Duct Cleaning
Because your ductwork funnels conditioned air through your home, the condition of the ducts can affect the quality of your air. Dust, pet dander, and other pollutants can collect on the interior walls, creating an ongoing source of contamination. By scheduling air duct cleaning as needed, you can be sure that these contaminants are removed and that additional issues such as mold in the ducts are eliminated. Prior to cleaning, our technician will inspect your ducts for damage, leaks, and other issues that can also contribute to the contamination of your home’s air supply. Appropriate repairs should be completed to ensure that you are protected from issues such as:
- Backdrafting – Air duct leaks facilitate the influx of carbon monoxide emissions from an attached garage, furnace, or other areas.
- Rodents and Vermin – Air duct holes provide creatures with access, posing health risks due to diseases these animals might be carrying.
- Dust and Debris – Air duct leaks allow dirt from different parts of your HVAC system to be directly introduced into your and your duct system and your indoor air.
