Indoor Air Quality Testing & Solutions

Hueytown and Birmingham Indoor Air Quality

There’s more to your home’s air than heating and cooling — indoor air quality is just as important. At Brown Cooling, Heating, Plumbing and Electrical, we understand this, which is why we offer a variety of indoor air quality solutions to help you breathe easier in your Hueytown or Birmingham home.

The Importance of Indoor Air Quality

When you think about your residential indoor air quality (IAQ), you probably assume it’s much better than the outside world. However, the air inside your home tends to be up to five times more polluted than the air outside. A poorly maintained air conditioning system may be providing your household with low-quality air.

Indoor air quality is determined by the level of pollutants in the air of your home. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stresses the importance of minimizing indoor air pollutants because poor indoor air quality can have serious ramifications on your health.

So what qualifies as an air pollutant you might find in your home?

  • Chemicals used for cleaning
  • Secondhand smoke
  • Gases
  • Dust
  • Mold
  • Dust mites
  • Pet dandruff
  • Pollen
  • Fungi
  • Bacteria

Reading this list might seem intimidating, but don’t worry. Brown Cooling, Heating, Plumbing and Electrical checks the IAQ of every system we work on to keep your family healthy and feeling comfortable.

Indoor Air Quality and Air Conditioning

Every heating and cooling system has an air filter to remove dust particles and other materials in the air before pushing them into your home. An air filter that needs to be changed might not catch as many pollutants, hindering your air quality. Air conditioning systems also regulate the humidity in the air of your home, keeping bacteria and fungi from growing.

Poor indoor air quality can have serious, negative effects if not taken care of in a timely manner. Pollutants in the air can cause symptoms similar to that of allergies or much more serious issues, such as:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Respiratory discomfort
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • A constant sickly feeling

If you’re worried about the quality of the air you breathe, one thing you can check is your air filter. Changing your air filter every few months or so will ensure as many particles as possible are being pulled from the air before it circulates. It will also keep your system running efficiently, saving you money.

Air Testing

Many homeowners have no idea that their home’s air quality is poor. At Brown Cooling, Heating, Plumbing and Electrical, we provide high-quality air testing to tell you what’s in your air. Our experts will take a sample of your home’s air to measure its quality. With this information, we can recommend the best air quality solutions for your home’s needs.

Air Purification and Filtration

We offer a range of air quality solutions, including air purification and filtration systems. Installed directly into your heating and cooling system, our air purifiers improve the quality of your home’s air at the source rather than in individual spaces like portable purifiers. This way, all of the air in your Hueytown home is circulated through the purifier and cleaned of any pollutants.

The Service Was Excellent

We called late one evening after our AC went out. They were very responsive and technician David Monk was at our home at 8:00am the next day as promised. He diagnosed the issue, got the part needed, installed and tested it all by 10:00am. The service was excellent and David was so nice and personable. I would highly recommend this company.
