Indoor Air Quality Services in Birmingham, AL
Most people don’t think very much about their indoor air quality. In fact, most people aren’t even aware that their indoor air quality may be quite poor. The assumption is that, as long as the air is free of smoke or other obvious irritants, it must be of good quality. However, this ignores the myriad of different ways in which indoor air quality can not only be quite poor, but have a substantial negative effect on a person’s health. That’s why Douglas Cooling & Heating offers a full range of indoor air quality services throughout Birmingham, AL. Call today to set up an appointment with one of our expert technicians.

Why Indoor Air Quality Services Are Necessary
The single biggest problem with the average building’s indoor air quality is airborne contaminants. These are microscopic particles from all kinds of different sources, including dust, pollen, dander, mold spores, and germs. You inhale millions of these little particles every time you take a breath, and prolonged exposure can cause all kinds of negative effects from the flu to asthma. Humidity imbalances can also cause similar issues, and exacerbate the ones caused by contaminants. This is why you need to take advantage of our indoor air quality services. If you want to be able to breathe better, you need to take steps to improve your air.

Air Filtration System Services
Air filtration systems are made of a fiber mesh, stretched across a plastic or metal frame. As contaminants flow into the mesh, they become snared in the fibers. Air can still flow through the filter normally. Air filtration systems are some of the simplest and most popular air purifiers on the market.
Air Purifier Services
There are a wide variety of different air purifiers available, far too many to list here. They all clean the air in different ways, but each has the same purpose: to remove as many airborne contaminants from circulation as possible. Contact us for more information on the many kinds of air purifiers.
Blower Door Testing Services
Blower door testing is used to determine the energy efficiency of a house. The entire home is sealed off, and then a large fan (the blower door) sucks air out of the house to reduce the pressure inside. The rate at which the house returns to normal pressure helps determine whether or not your home has any air leaks.
Carbon Monoxide Detector Services
Carbon monoxide is a combustion byproduct given off by burning fuels like natural gas. Inhaling large amounts of carbon monoxide can be deadly, causing loss of consciousness and eventual suffocation. Most combustion systems have ways to dispose of carbon monoxide, but sometimes those methods fail. In order to keep yourself safe, you should have carbon monoxide detectors installed throughout the house. We install and service carbon monoxide detectors.
Duct Repair and Replacement Services
Ducts can last quite a long time, but they aren’t invincible. Over time ducts come loose, fall apart, and develop other repair needs. If the ducts are not repaired or replaced, you may soon find yourself wasting quite a bit of money on heating or air conditioning thanks to an inefficient delivery system. We offer full duct repair and replacement.
Duct Sealing Service
Sometimes, the condition of your ducts is enough to be serious but not enough to require full–on repair or replacement. In times like those, you should schedule duct sealing. Duct sealing can make your forced–air heating systems up to 30% more efficient, helping to keep you more comfortable while saving you money at the same time.
Duct Testing Service
You can’t have your ducts properly repaired or sealed without comprehensive duct testing. Duct testing is the process by which your technician determines where the problem in your ducts is. Once the specific problems are found, then they can be properly addressed. We offer a full range of duct testing services.
High humidity can be a huge issue for your home and your health. Chronically humid air makes it harder to keep cool and promotes mold growth, which can be quite dangerous depending on the type. A whole–house dehumidifier will help prevent this by removing excess humidity from the air. We install and service dehumidifiers.
Energy Recovery Ventilator Services
One of the big problems with maintaining indoor air quality during the summer and winter months is the lack of air flow. Most people close their windows to turn on their climate control systems. This dries out the air inside the home, which can lead to problems. An energy recovery ventilator keeps air flowing between the air and the outside environment, without compromising the temperature in the home. We offer full ERV services.
Chronically dry air is just as bad for you as air that is too humid. If the air is too dry, it causes your skin and nose to dry out and crack. This makes it far more likely for you to be infected by viruses and bacteria, which is part of why flu season is during the winter. A humidifier releases moisture into the air in order to maintain proper humidity levels. We offer comprehensive humidifier services.
Insulation is the material responsible for hindering the movement of heat between your home and the outside area. Without it, it would be far more difficult to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home during the hot and cold months. We offer comprehensive insulation services, including installation and replacement.
Commercial Indoor Air Quality Services
Commercial buildings need indoor air quality services just as much as residential systems do. More so, even, as they tend to have bigger issues maintaining high indoor air quality. This is primarily because commercial buildings are more airtight, which traps contaminants far more easily. If you need commercial indoor air quality services of any kind, give us a call today.
