Indoor Air Quality
At Adams Heating & Cooling, our priority is helping you to improve your indoor air quality (IAQ). Without taking measures to address indoor pollution, your home could have poor air quality, putting your health at risk from allergies, asthma, and other chronic illnesses.
Here in the United States, we spend more time indoors than ever before in our history. This can negatively affect our health as the air we breathe indoors can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside.
Our indoor air quality professionals are well-educated and experienced in installing effective systems for improving your home’s inside air. We continue to stay on top of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry and advancements made in the greater Cincinnati area to bring you the best at all times.

What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?
Indoor air quality is affected by anything that releases gas or particles. Indoor environmental toxins exist in your Cincinnati home’s air from various indoor air pollutants such as cleaning and personal-care products, smoking, burning of fossil fuel, and some types of treated wood and building materials.
Other contributors that could affect indoor air are inadequate ventilation, unmaintained HVAC systems, and excessive moisture creating mold and bacteria.
What Are the Symptoms of Bad Indoor Air Quality?
Many times symptoms of poor air quality are mistaken as respiratory issues like colds or allergies. Common acute health reactions are flu-like symptoms, dizziness, headaches, nose bleeds, fatigue, sore throats, and upper respiratory congestion.
Continual or repeated exposure to indoor pollutants can result in more serious health conditions like heart disease, respiratory diseases, and even cancer. The most proactive stance you can take to protect your family is to improve your Cincinnati home’s indoor air quality.

Just as dehumidifiers remove moisture and humidity, humidifiers add moisture to the air to balance humidity levels to the recommended 30-50% range.
