Indoor Air Quality Services in Des Moines, IA
It’s alarming how poor the air quality in many homes in the U.S. is. According to the EPA, the air inside homes and buildings is often 3 to 4 times worse than the air outdoors. How is this possible? It’s a side effect of the heavy heat insulation on buildings that’s designed to keep them energy efficient throughout the year. However, this ends up restricting the free flow of fresh air into the space, and the air inside becomes stuffy or dry and filled with contaminants that accumulate in the HVAC system.
You aren’t helpless when it comes to your indoor air quality, however. With the assistance of the specialists at Schaal Plumbing, Heating and Cooling, you can have most of the dust, dirt, pollen, dander, bacteria, smoke, dust mites, and other contaminants removed from your air. We provide a wide number of indoor air quality (IAQ) solutions for our customers. Simply call us today and schedule an appointment.

Why You Need Professionals for Indoor Air Quality

However, this will usually do little good for improving your air. First of all, you won’t actually know what specifically is lowering your air quality and may end up with the incorrect device. You might not know how powerful a filter or purifier to get, and this will often end up doing serious damage to your HVAC system and your comfort.
Call on our team to find out what sort of solutions will best match your home’s needs. We will then provide the installation work necessary for the filters, purifiers, etc. to do their jobs. And keep doing it, since we also provide repair and maintenance to ensure the system’s longevity. That way, you receive the best return on your investment in health and comfort for your household.
We Offer Extensive Indoor Air Quality Services
Whatever issues you are experiencing with your home’s air, you can trust that the experienced team at Schaal Plumbing, Heating and Cooling can find a solution to the problem. Below are some of the air quality services that we provide for homes in the Des Moines, IA area. Call today to find out more.
Air Filtration & Air Purifier Systems
An air filter is one of the basic ways of removing pollutants from the air—and it’s still one of the most effective. But you have to make sure that any air filters you have for your home are properly integrated into your HVAC system and won’t restrict airflow. Let our professionals make sure this is the case.
While filters trap airborne contaminants in a mesh of fibers, air purifiers use methods such as ionization to remove these pollutants from the air. Air purifiers target smaller particles, and are helpful with eliminating smoke, gases, pesticides, and odor molecules. We’ll help you find the ideal air purifier for your needs. One of the most unpleasant types of the contaminants that can infiltrate your HVAC system is organic pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, and mold spores. The best way to wipe out these unhealthy intruders is with the power of an ultra violet light. We will see that the health of your household has the best protection with UV air purifier services.
Control the Humidity with a Dehumidifier or Humidifier
Is there too much humidity in your house? This is a common problem, and it leads to warm–weather discomfort, water damage, and mold and mildew growth. We can install a whole–house dehumidifier to address these issues, and we will help with any repair and maintenance services that may be required.
Low humidity is often a problem during the winter, and it contributes to making those chilly temperatures feel even chillier. If you want better comfort in cold weather and a heating system that doesn’t need to stay on all the time, give us a call to see about installing a whole–house humidifier.
Duct Sealing & Testing Services
One common cause of a drop in indoor air quality is holes in the ductwork of a home. But leaky air ducts create multiple problems for a home, and you need to have any holes and gaps in the ventilation system professionally sealed as soon as you can arrange it. We offer excellent duct sealing in services Des Moines and surrounding area.
How will you know you have leaky air ducts? Just arrange for professional duct testing. Our ductwork specialists will pressurize your ducts and measure the drop in pressure to see if the ventilation system has lost its integrity. Then we can arrange to have your ducts sealed and repaired to fix the trouble.
Improve Your Home’s Efficiency
In both hot and warm weather, insulation is key for an energy–efficient home. An effective insulation layer keeps the heat out in summer and traps the heat in during winter. We provide blown–in insulation that helps fill in all the odd nooks and crannies of your home’s attic. Call us for more details.
