Your Home Should Feel Nice.

Reasons Why Air Quality is Important

Why should you be concerned with Indoor Air Quality?  Poor indoor air quality is one of the leading reasons why people suffer from allergies and other cardiovascular ailments.  Almost 90 percent of your life is spent inside the home, so the air quality in your home should be of vital concern to you and your family.

This might come as a surprise to you but the truth is indoor air pollution can be more hazardous to your health than that of the air outdoors. If you think you caught that cold you have right now from your co-workers or someone you shared a subway car with, you might be wrong, you may have gotten sick at home.

How can you know if the air quality in your home is getting worse?

The signs you need to look for are recurring health symptoms that are attached to common ailments; symptoms like sneezing, dizziness, allergies, flu-like symptoms, just an overall feeling of being unhealthy on a regular basis. If you are somehow suffering from these symptoms often then there might be a problem in the air in your home.

What causes the air quality in your home to go down?

There are several things that can affect the air quality in the home, like pets whose hair and dander float in the air, cigarette smoke, dust mites, and a poorly maintained Alexandria heating and air conditioning system, all of these could be responsible in lowering the indoor air quality in your home.

How can you help improve the quality of air in your home?

One of the best and simplest ways to improve air quality is the removal of most of the sources of pollutants in your home. If it is not that cold and not too hot, open the windows so that air can freely circulate inside your home, flushing out the pollutants and other unhealthy things floating around in the air. You should also replace most of your cleaning and air freshening materials with natural and organic substitutes. For example, replace your regular bug spray with one that is water-based, this will help lessen the smell that is left behind, it’s also a lot safer than regular bug spray.

Another good way to improve air quality is to have an Alexandria heating and air conditioning or indoor air quality contractor periodically check and do maintenance work in the air conditioning system in your house. If your air conditioner is serviced regularly it will be able to run more efficiently, thus it not only improves the air in the home it will be energy saving as well. You should also ask your HVAC contractor if they can install an air filtration system along with the air conditioning. Having additional filters will mean that the indoor air that you breathe will be much cleaner.

Having good indoor air quality in Alexandria is something that should not be taken lightly, because your family’s health is at stake here. Take these necessary steps to ensure that the air inside your home does not compromise the health of the people living inside.

Customers With a NICE Experience

Barb N.

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions. Today Rolando M. came by for the maintenance check and, as usual, he was neat, professional and maintained the COVID rules. He was also very nice, living up to the company name. I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”

“Superb customer service. Before a service appointment, you receive a text message notification with photo of the tech that will be at your residence followed by a phone call. During a service appointment you'll updated and educated. If there is a concern, management will contact you promptly and follow up until issue resolved. Awesome and attentive team!!”
