Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality in Joliet, IL
Air pollution is frequently on people’s minds, but often the worst kind of air pollution doesn’t come from a smoggy day outdoors. It’s from a regular day right inside your own home! Indoor air quality today can be as much as 3 to 4 times worse than the air outside.
You may find this difficult to believe, but think about how many chemical products there are in your house, and how little fresh air is able to flow freely through the rooms because of the insulation and sealing against hot and cold days. And there are numerous other sources of indoor air pollutants that you haven’t thought of, such as pressed wood products, paint, and volatile organic compounds.
Don’t worry if this all sounds a touch scary. Your household doesn’t have to suffer because of air quality issues. There are solutions available, and you’ll find many at Johansen & Anderson Inc. Our IAQ experts install and service many filters and purifiers that will clean your home’s air. We’ll also help you balance the humidity levels if you have trouble with dry or damp air.

Some of the Air Quality Products We Install and Service
There is no such thing as a one–size–fits all indoor air quality product. You’ll need to trust to our professionals to find the right type of system that will target the pollutants in your air without causing problems for your HVAC system. Below are some of the options:
- Air filters: Basic filtration in your HVAC system can eliminate the larger air contaminants, such as dust mites, pollen, and dander.
- Air purifiers: To target smaller pollutants—chemicals, odor molecules, volatile organic compounds, bacteria—electronic air purifiers are a good choice. They use ionization or UV radiation to eliminate minute contaminants.
- Energy and Heat Recovery ventilators: These devices allow you to bring fresh air into your home and expel stale air without placing extra stress on the AC or heater.
- Humidifiers/Dehumidifiers: High humidity can make a hot day feel miserable, and it can create water damage as well as mold and mildew growth. Low humidity can mean illness and a harsh edge to cold days. Solve either problem with a whole–house humidifier or dehumidifier.
