Did you know that indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, concentrations of pollutants are two to five times higher indoors than typical outdoor concentrations. It is important for your health to know what you are breathing inside your home and take steps to improve indoor air quality.

What Is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air quality is the quality of air inside homes and other buildings. The quality of air can negatively impact health symptoms and other components of your home. Most people spend 90% of their time indoors, which is why it is important to breathe clean air. Typical indoor pollutants in Charleston include:

  • Mold
  • Dust
  • Carbon Monoxide
  • Radon
  • Pet Dander
  • Volatile Organic Compounds
  • Cooking Fumes

Whether you were born and raised in South Carolina or are new to the area, you can immediately feel the high levels of humidity. Due to the subtropical climate off of the Atlantic coast, you can expect high humidity levels year round. While some humidity in your home is fine, levels should never reach above 50%. High humidity in homes can cause mold and mildew growth and negatively affect indoor air quality. Dehumidifiers are devices that remove moisture from the air and maintain healthy humidity levels. Let us help you combat humidity and install a dehumidifier in Charleston and surrounding areas!

Air Purification Systems

Air purification systems, or air purifiers, are a beneficial home system that removes pollutants and increases indoor air quality. The device uses electrically charged filters to reduce air pollutants and allergens. This means the air cleaner works similar to a magnet, because it removes particles from the air using electrical energy and charges them positively or negatively.

UV Lights

At Anchor Heating & Air, we can install UV lights to improve your home’s air quality! UV lights emit ultraviolet rays to purify the air by killing pollutants such as mold and bacteria. This is a chemical free to remove contaminants as they pass through your HVAC system.
