Indoor Air Quality in Beach Park
A Breath of Fresh Air: Improving Air Quality in Your Home
If you’re having breathing problems, improving your home’s air quality might not be the first solution you think of. But it makes sense—your home is where you spend a great deal of your time, at least while sleeping, and the moisture, dust, and bacteria levels in your home can influence your health. Our Beach Park indoor air quality experts have helped homeowners throughout the Greater Chicagoland Area breathe better for decades. We can help you, too.
Indoor air pollutants take many forms:
- Allergens, such as pollen or pet hair
- Gases such as radon and carbon monoxide
- Fumes from substances used indoors—pesticides, varnishes, or paints
All of these can affect your respiratory health, sleep quality, and more. Individuals may also be more sensitive to certain contaminants or pollutants than others, so it’s important to think about your family’s particular needs when considering indoor air quality improvements.

How Kern Heating & Cooling Co. Can Help
The Environmental Protection Agency outlines three strategies for improving indoor air quality: controlling pollution sources, improving ventilation, and using air cleaners.
Whether one or a combination of these strategies could benefit your home, Kern Heating & Cooling Co. can make it happen. We remove pollution via duct cleaning or filtration; we install new air conditioning and heating units that are efficient and utilize fresh, outdoor air; and we can recommend additional measures, such as HEPA filters, activated carbon, and ultraviolet light products that remove tiny particulates, odors, and even bacteria from the air. If you’re in need of air quality services in the Greater Chicagoland Area, you can count on us.
What You Can Do
Certain cleaning or equipment installation processes are best left to the professionals.
However, there are steps you can take to improve your indoor air quality and increase the respiratory comfort of your family members, such as:
- Open windows and screen doors to allow outdoor air in
- Keep houseplants—some are shown to remove air pollutants
- Quit smoking
- Change your air filters regularly
- Install carbon monoxide detectors
- Clean and maintain your ventilation equipment
