Indoor air quality matters
Your home maintenance checklist is a mile long. The lawn needs to be mowed, it’s time for an AC system tune-up, and there’s a roof shingle issue. The last thing you want to think about is something that you take for granted: your home’s air. Yet, indoor air quality is important, and if your home’s air is full of contaminants like pollen, pet dander, and bacteria, you could be putting your health in danger.
That’s why your friends at Ace Air offer indoor air quality testing and solutions. Our thorough inspection will let you know exactly what is floating around unseen in your home’s air, and then our technicians will let you know exactly how you can fix the problem. It’s as easy as that. If you’ve been suffering from allergies or asthma problems in your own home, give Ace a call and ask to schedule an indoor air quality test.

What’s In Your Home’s Air?
As you might expect, your home’s air pulls stuff from both inside and out. This means that air containing pollen, dust mites, smoke, mold, and viruses is coming in from the outside, while air with chemical particles, pet dander, and dust is trapped inside. Even something mundane as hair spray can linger in your home’s air for quite a while.
The first sign that you might have poor indoor air quality is if a family member with sensitivity to allergens begins having trouble breathing, or experiences allergy symptoms while inside with no windows open. While someone suffering from allergies can be a signal that you need testing, it’s a good idea either way. Poor indoor air quality can have prolonged health effects, but often remains invisible to the naked eye, and therefore out-of-sight and out-of-mind.
The Benefits of Clean Indoor Air
Ace’s indoor air quality testing can help you identify what’s in your home’s air, but what do you do with that information? By having our team install a variety of mitigation methods and clean things like your AC unit, furnace, and air ducts, you can experience the following benefits of clean air:
- Better breathing: This goes without saying, but for people who suffer from sensitivity to allergens or smoke—or who have asthma—better indoor air quality means that they’ll breathe easier without experiencing negative symptoms. Your home should be a refuge from the outside air, not a place where you feel you need to watch what you breathe in.
- Better smells: One of the signs of very poor indoor air quality is a musty, stale smell to the air. This isn’t true in all cases, but you will find that improving the air quality in your home will generally make everything smell better. That’s important, since you spend so much time inside your home. Plus, you don’t want to think about what your guests smell.
- Less sickness: Certain indoor air quality solutions, such as air purifiers, thin filters, and UV lamps can kill of bacteria and viruses, or at least render them inert and unable to infect you or your family. If you’re the type that hates getting sick—and who doesn’t—better indoor air quality can make a positive difference in your health.
HVAC Maintenance and Air Duct Cleaning
There are two major steps you can take to improve the state of the air in your home. The first is to schedule regular maintenance for your home’s air conditioning and heating systems. After all, both of these vital HVAC systems can be a major source of the dust, dirt, and grime that enters your home’s air ducts—and then living spaces—in the first place. AC and furnace maintenance from Ace includes a thorough system cleaning that keeps these materials from building up.
The next step is to schedule air duct cleaning. Your home’s air ducts can be major sources for dust and dirt buildup, and can also be housing allergens, pet hair, and outside pollutants that aggravate health issues. With air duct cleaning, your ducts will no longer be a safe harbor for these materials, and your home’s air will be cleaner.
Air Purification Equipment
If your indoor air quality is poor, you’ll want to take steps to turn things around. The great news is that Ace can help. We offer a wide range of air purifying and air cleaning products that restore your home’s air to a clean, normal state. Your Ace technician will match you to the right equipment, including:
- Air humidifiers
- Air cleaners
- Carbon monoxide alarms
- UV lamps
- Air purifiers

Our Most Frequently Asked Questions
What are some other signs of poor indoor air quality?
If your home has damage from mildew or mold spores, that might be a sign that your home is too humid or that poor quality air is getting in from the outside. If your home smells like cigarette smoke or car exhaust, that may signal that air from outside is pouring into your home.
Is humidity important to indoor air quality?
Yes! Here in Louisiana, we don’t lack in that department, so Ace is most often installing dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air and dry things out, so that mold and mildew doesn’t have a comfortable environment. Too dry of a home, however, and your wallpaper will begin to crack.
But, I thought my home was sealed?
That’s possible, but that can actually backfire when it comes to indoor air quality, as more things become trapped in your home’s air, constantly recirculating with no way to vent out or escape. At Ace, we find that well-sealed homes have worse indoor air quality issues than drafty ones.
Is poor indoor air quality dangerous?
In a vast majority of cases, poor indoor air quality is more of a nuisance, whether it’s allergens aggravating you or pet dander making you sneeze. However, those with asthma can be negatively impacted by poor indoor air quality, and diseases can more readily spread. In a worse case scenario, carbon monoxide leaks can be deadly.
Unfortunately, HVAC systems don’t always function on your schedule or budget. When you need a new system, sometimes it just can’t wait. Fortunately, we’re here to help. To help you and your family handle the unexpected, we offer financing plans to customers with approved credit.
