It’s an unfortunate truth that sometimes the air outside is less polluted than the air indoors. Dirty ductwork, cleaning byproducts, dust, and mold can create an unhealthy environment. Fortunately, this is a problem with a solution. Professional HVAC technicians can conduct indoor air quality (IAQ) tests. If you’re located in Kennesaw, GA or the surrounding area, our experts at Controlled Climate Services can perform this task for you.
Contacting HVAC Professionals for an Indoor Air Quality Test
The first thing a competent HVAC technician is going to do is listen to you tell them what led to you scheduling your appointment. It may be that people in your family keep coughing or having regular, unexplained headaches. It may be that there is an unusual smell. It’s a good idea to get an IAQ test if your home has experienced fire or water damage. Sometimes the cleanup from such an incident misses something, and there may be soot in your vents or mold growing in your walls. Learning what prompted your decision will give your technician insight into what’s been happening.
What the IAQ Test Looks For
The technician will then perform tests and evaluate issues with your air quality. They’ll look at areas like humidity levels, mold and mildew, excess dust, viruses and bacteria, and lingering odors.

Solutions That Can Enhance Your Indoor Air Quality
We can’t tell you what solutions we’ll suggest until we perform an indoor air quality test and see what’s happening. However, we can tell you that in this general area we see a lot of the same types of problems.
One solution that a lot of homeowners choose is the installation of a high-quality air purification system. A whole-house air purification system can help prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses. It can also help with mold in the air. Besides that, whole-house air purification systems are a strong deterrent to the circulation of dust, pollen, and other contaminants. We’ve helped many of our customers with the installation and maintenance of these systems, and we’ve achieved great results.
Many of our local homeowners run into issues with humidity. This is no surprise to those of us who have lived in Georgia for a long time. We’ve worked in the area since 1990, and it didn’t take long for us to understand how important the installation of a dehumidifier can be. Many local homeowners find that a dehumidifier is the answer to stopping mold and mildew growth in their homes. It also increases their comfort levels and improves the quality of the indoor air they’re breathing every day.
Another common remedy we’ve found is ventilation services. This surprises many homeowners because it’s a simple solution that often makes a significant difference in indoor air quality. In addition, we often find that cleaning the ductwork, replacing air filters with high-quality ones, or installing a new fan make a huge improvement. During our evaluation, we will let you know what we find, and we’ll then offer solutions that work for your needs.
