Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality Services in Camden County & South Jersey
Hot summers and cold winters here in Camden Country, NJ tend to keep our attention focused on heaters and air conditioners in our homes. This is understandable and fully justified, but it’s not the only part of the story. Indoor air quality can affect your health and comfort levels just as much as the temperature can. Dust and dirt can lead to illness, while germs and bacteria can spread from one family member to another. Humidity levels can be high in the summer and bone dry in the winter, forcing your HVAC system to work harder than it should.
The solution is an indoor air quality product installed, maintained by the pros at Ambient Comfort LLC. We can audit your home to determine your precise indoor air quality needs, then install the proper system to meet it. We’ll be on hand to keep it maintained, and at the end of its life, we can replace it with a newer, upgraded model. Trust our team to do the job right every time. You’ll be surprised what a good IAQ product can do! Call us today to schedule indoor air quality services in Camden County, NJ.
Air Filters and Purifiers Stop the Spread of Dust
Dust and dirt are constant factors in keeping your home clean: brought in every time you open a door or window, and blown through the whole house by your heating and air conditioning system. All such systems have filters in place to cut down on the spread of dust, but for homes that really want to address the problem we recommend a PureAir Air Purification system from Lennox. It provides comprehensive air cleaning power, backed by one of the most reliable companies in the industry. With less dust in the air, you’ll find instances of illness dropping in your Camden County home. It will also be easier to dust and clean as well. Contact Ambient Comfort LLC to get all of the details!
Whole–Home Dehumidifiers Cut into the Summer Heat
High humidity comes with the territory during a Camden County summer. And while your air conditioner can handle some of it, it adds strain to the system since humidity makes the air around you feel hotter. Adding a whole–house dehumidifier eases the strain off of your air conditioner, allowing it to work without spending as much energy or strain. More importantly, a dehumidifier simply makes your house feel more comfortable, as well as discouraging the growth of mold and bacteria elsewhere in your home. Over time, it can make a huge difference in your household for many summers to come!

Indoor Air Quality Advice
How do homeowners deal with indoor air quality problems in southern New Jersey? We might believe that the majority of air pollution occurs outdoors when we read it so often in the newspaper, but that’s simply not true. The big problem with air quality and our lives exists within our homes. The team at Ambient Comfort LLC can help with your indoor air quality woes if you need help with one or more of the five categories of contaminants.
Human beings spend over 90% of their time indoors these days, and this number is quickly growing after the Coronavirus outbreak. We’re lead to believe that our homes are safe when they just look clean, but they might not necessarily be! We can help pinpoint where you might need help with your indoor air quality by looking at the 5 categories of air contaminants.
Call our team to address the problem with your home’s air quality today.
Category 5: Carbon Monoxide
The dangerous effects of carbon monoxide can often be mistaken for a random bug or the flu. From headaches to dizziness, disorientation, nausea, and fatigue, people can start feeling pretty crummy due to the inhalation of just small amounts of carbon monoxide. This can even become fatal if homeowners aren’t careful. Make sure your furnace is in working order when it’s burning fuel, or that you’ve got functioning carbon monoxide detectors in your home to keep you safe.
Category 4: Microbial Growth
People’s homes can become a jungle of micro-organisms, fungal spores, mold, and mildew if they don’t figure out a way to protect their air quality. Mold is alive, which means it spreads as much as it can—leading to near toxic levels of spores existing in your air. Microbial growth can be caused by two things, poor ventilation in your home, and the existence of high levels of humidity. If you smell that sour scent of mold, be sure to address the root of your problem to take care of your indoor air quality.
Category 3: Allergens and Particulates
This is usually what people think of when they envision indoor air quality contaminants. This category covers dust, pollen, pet dander, insect debris, and smoke. While their existence in your home’s air might be natural, they can get caught in the cycle of your HVAC system, being unable to escape your house and becoming abundant throughout. If you’re stuck dealing with nose and throat irritation, congestion, sneezing, coughing, or asthma, then call us. Only a powerful filter can effectively remove these kinds of particulates from your indoor air.
Category 2: Infectious Illnesses
This category covers everything from the common cold to viruses, bacteria, the flu, and other germs. These are airborne illnesses that are highly contagious and can be spread in numerous ways throughout your home. They can be dragged in from the outside, then continuously cycled through your air distribution system to become a recurring threat for a long time. Sick people in the same home are much more statistically likely to catch the same illness because of this effect.
Category 1: Toxic Compounds
These are what we call volatile organic compounds, or VOCs for short. This can include building materials, furniture, carpets, paints, cleaning chemicals, and anything similar that might exist in your air which can be unhealthy to inhale. Due to the tight seal of many homes that are built these days, the fumes that exist from toxic compounds can linger for much longer and cause stronger allergic reactions than they did in the past.
