Indoor Air Quality
Top-Notch Indoor Air Quality Services in the Greater Savannah, GA Area
Many people are surprised to learn that indoor air quality (IAQ) in Savannah homes can be considerably more polluted than the air outside. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA), polluted air inside a home can have health consequences that include allergies, headaches, irritability, fatigue, and problems with concentration. Air pollution indoors can also cause health problems like respiratory distress, asthma, dizziness, nausea, and skin irritations.
Reduce Airborne Pathogens through Better Indoor Air
Pollutants, dust, dander, pollen, smoke and even pathogens such as viruses and bacteria all can be suspended in the air we breathe, even when you don’t see them.
GPS patented needlepoint bipolar ionization technology safely creates and releases ions into the airstream using your existing HVAC system as the delivery method. When these ions disperse throughout a space, they seek out and form bonds with particles in the air through a process called agglomeration. This creates a snowball effect in which particles begin to cluster together. The larger a cluster of particles becomes,the easier it is for your system to safely filter it out of the air. Contact with positive and negative ions have microbicidal effects on pathogens, which ultimately disrupts their surface proteins and renders them inactive.

Causes Behind Bad Indoor Air Quality
Air quality can be compromised by too much or too little humidity, a lack of ventilation, and airborne contaminants like pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, mold, viruses, dust, and pesticides. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “given the fact that many people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors, the health risk due to indoor air pollutants is a significant public health concern.” At Byrd Heating and Air Conditioning, we are concerned about our customers’ comfort and that includes healthy IAQ. So, how can you get cleaner air in your home?
