Indoor Air Quality

Breathe deeply with crystal-clean air in your home!

San Antonio Indoor Air Quality Solutions

It can be easy to assume that the air inside of your home is safe and healthy to breathe, and under ideal situations, it is. However, it’s best to think about the air in your home like any other object or surface — it can get dirty, and it’s important to maintain and keep it clean.

At Bravo Heating and Air Conditioning, it’s our business to care about indoor air quality (IAQ). Our goal is to give our customers access to the information they need to maintain the freshest and most breathable air inside of their homes.

We strive to be an industry leader in San Antonio’s indoor air quality services. Whether that’s providing customers with tips they can use to maintain good IAQ or installing a whole-home purification system, we’re here to provide a solution to all of your indoor air quality issues.

Consequences Of Poor IAQ

To understand the importance of maintaining good IAQ, it’s very important to understand the consequences of poor air quality. The effects of poor air quality may be subtle, potentially even easy to ignore if you’re young or in good health. But over time, poor air quality can affect anyone and be particularly impactful to the sick and elderly. A few of the most obvious impacts of bad IAQ are:

  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Irritation to the soft tissues of the respiratory system
  • Respiratory irritation

Given years, the negative effects of breathing dirty air can lead to far worse consequences than a headache, such as heart disease and cancer.

Contributors To Bad IAQ

To combat bad IAQ, it’s vital to understand the common sources of it in most homes. Fortunately, this is a well-studied subject, and most of the hard work has already been done for us. According to the EPA, the most common contributors to poor IAQ are listed below.

Asbestos

Unfortunately still somewhat common, asbestos was a widely manufactured building material in the mid-19th century and was popularized because of its favorable building properties and resistance to fire. The use of asbestos has been widely banned because it has been linked to the lung disease, mesothelioma.

Biological Contaminants

This category includes anything that is or was alive. This covers growths like mold and mildew along with bacteria and unfortunately, bugs — their bodies and whatever they leave behind.

Carbon Monoxide

One of the more immediately dangerous contaminants, carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is given off as a byproduct of burning fuels like natural gas and wood.

Cooktop Gas & Smoke

Unfortunately, a good meal can be a large contributor to less-than-ideal air quality. This makes it important that you use proper ventilation when cooking to reduce moisture and particulates in the air.

Pet Dander

As much of a tragedy as it is, our furry companions represent another one of the main contributors to poor indoor air quality in our homes. This makes regular brushing and grooming important for both you and your pet.

Given years, the negative effects of breathing dirty air can lead to far worse consequences than a headache, such as heart disease and cancer.
