Why would I need to worry about the indoor air quality in a home?

While you aren’t sharing air like you do in an office building or public space, homes can actually be full of potential toxins that seep out of building materials like flooring and paint. This is especially the case in new homes, or if you replace your carpet/flooring/paint. In fact, the air in your home isn’t “pure” unless you take action to make it so. Without any air purification steps, the air outside is much cleaner than the air in your home.

What can I do to improve the air quality in my Academy Acres North home?

For those concerned with the indoor air quality of an Albuquerque home, Bosque Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing has several ways we can help. Ask the team at Bosque about UV lights that improve the air quality of a space, and also the option to install an Ozonator. These machines put a safe percentage of ozone into the air in your home or business to help purify the air.
