Indoor Air Quality Solutions from Freedom.

Older Homes

If you live in a Birmingham area home built over 20 years ago, it may not be optimized for indoor air quality. While the craftsmanship of your home is likely solid, it’s possible that the building allows contaminants to pass in and out through lack of a “thermal envelope,” or the sealing that keeps it airtight.

New Homes

A newer home is built with efficiency and elegance in mind. While there is likely a thermal envelope to guard against outside pollutants, it’s more important that the air circulating within is kept clean. Freedom offers a wide array of equipment and techniques to keep your system clean and prevent recycling contaminated air.

Ductwork

Your ducts are the avenues that bring air from your heating or cooling unit into the rooms of your home. Freedom knows that a clean duct means healthy air, and offers services in duct cleaning and patching to ensure maximum efficiency, airflow and quality.

You should change your air filter at least once every 3 months and clean it once every month in your Birmingham home. Keeping your air filters clean and clear of dirt and debris ensures that your system is able to work as efficiently as possible. Dirty and clogged air filters are one of the main reasons your AC unit could stop working properly. To learn more about keeping your air filters clean, contact us today

There are many benefits of having an air purifier in your Birmingham home: 

  • The air inside your home is cleaner and healthier to breathe. 
  • It filters allergens out, such as pollen, decreasing discomfort in your home. 
  • It controls the moisture levels in the air.

Although it may not be in all homes, an air purifier is a great addition to any home, especially homes with fewer windows and vents. To learn more about getting an air purifier, visit our website today.  

Some symptoms of poor air quality in your Birmingham home include: 

  • Feeling nauseous, lightheaded or faint.
