Read these frequently asked questions from homeowners like you about how to improve the overall indoor air quality of your home.

Should I be concerned about my indoor air quality?

Yes. Most of our time is spent indoors and due to air tight homes, airborne contaminants are likely to accumulate and affect your health. Read more here.

What products should I use to reduce dust build up?

We offer specialized filtration to reduce dust build up in your home.

Does my pet’s hair affect my air quality?

Yes. Pet dander gets cycled along with other contaminants through the vents and ductwork in your home which can clog your filters and irritate your allergies.

How can I reduce my allergies?

Change your filters monthly.  Dirt, dander, hair, dust and pollutants affect your indoor air quality which can affect your respiratory functions.  Kellam Mechanical has several product solutions.  Ask about our hospital and military grade UV PhotoMax product that improves your indoor air and decreases bacteria, illness and allergy discomfort.

Are my recurring headaches possibly related to poor indoor air quality?

Headaches are a common side affect of poor air quality as they are symptomatic of allergies from mold and dust and pet dander. Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) which are bio products from paints, carpets, household cleaners or harmful chemicals can also contribute.

Why does my house feel muggy?

Humidity is common in the summer months. There are several factors that can contribute to improper levels of humidity in your home. Installing a dehumidifier may help control the humidity levels.

Why is my indoor air too dry?

As dry winter months set in, our indoor air tends to be affected due to outdoor low relative humidity. The proper IAQ accessory such as a humidifier can be applied to improve your indoor humidity levels.

Do I need a separate solution from my HVAC system to assist with air quality?

Yes, HVAC systems are not designed to improve air quality problems.

Does the age of my HVAC equipment affect my air quality?

Yes, leaky ductwork and improperly sized equipment may contribute greatly to IAQ problems.
