Nov 19, 2018 | Blog

Indoor air quality can make a huge difference in how comfortable and healthy your family feels. Therefore, it’s important that you do all you can to maintain healthy IAQ in Bradenton, Florida. Here are three advanced IAQ devices that can dramatically improve your home’s indoor air quality:


Florida is humid. Therefore, it’s important to take action to remove excess moisture from your home. Dehumidifiers can help you control the humidity levels in your home and improve your indoor air quality.

Biological growth thrives in humid environments, triggering allergies and irritating sensitive lungs. Dehumidifiers work to remove moisture from the air and balance overall humidity levels. You can either install a whole-home dehumidifier or add a portable model to a single room.


Ventilators work by removing moisture-laden or contaminated air, replacing it with clean and conditioned outdoor air. They’re important in rooms that experience a lot of moisture or chemicals, like bathrooms and kitchens. This IAQ device is perfect for reducing the presence of volatile organic compounds in your home that can seriously affect your family’s health. These products release harmful VOCs:

  • Cigarettes
  • Cleaners and disinfectants
  • Air fresheners
  • Pesticides
  • Solvents
  • Paints and thinners
  • Adhesives
  • Hobby and craft supplies
  • Dry cleaning fluids

Air Purifiers

Finally, an air purifier is ideal in homes with people who have sensitive lungs. This IAQ device works as an extra layer of filtration in addition to your HVAC system’s filter. It can remove fine particles and other contaminants from the air, leaving your home’s air clean and easy to breathe.

Like your HVAC system’s filter, you need to change the filter your air purifier regularly for it to work effectively. That’s especially important if you’re trying to effectively remove debris like pet dander and dust from the air. We recommend change yours every three months.
