Indoor Air Quality in New Orleans & Beyond
Breathe Easier with Our Indoor Air Quality Service
Residential and commercial heating and cooling is only part of the indoor air quality equation. It goes without saying that you want your HVAC equipment to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. But you also want your indoor air to be fresh, clean, and healthy.
Given that we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, more and more people in Southern Louisiana are including indoor air quality products as supplements to their HVAC systems to ensure that their indoor air is as healthy as possible.
The Truth About Indoor Air
Did you know that the air inside your residential or commercial space can be more polluted than the air outside? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, residential and commercial indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside.
Indoor air contaminants can include toxic spores, bacteria, spray cleaners, viruses, pet dander, dust mites, carbon monoxide, lead particles, and formaldehyde. All of these pollutants can cause health problems and allergic reactions.
There are a number of ways to improve indoor air quality.
- Clean your house. Believe it or not a dirty house will contribute to poor indoor air quality.
- Ventilate: Open windows and let stale air out of your home.
- Change air filters. Air filters can collect dust and debris making them less effective in cleaning your air.
- Invest in an air purifier. An air purifier like the kind you can get through Doug’s Service Company will literally clean the air in your home of harmful pollutants.
Other means of improving air quality can be to use other forms of technology, including UV lights, to better clean our indoor air. For more information about improving your indoor air quality contact us today.
A number of things pollute indoor air.
- Carbon Monoxide
Poor air quality can come as a result of environmental conditions or from items or chemicals you have in your home. For more information about improving air quality in your home contact us today.
In short, yes, air purifiers are worth the expense. Air purifiers won’t remove all aggravating particles from your indoor air but they will neutralize fine particles like dust, dander and other things that may irritate your airway.

Duct Cleaning & Ductwork Replacement
If you have ductwork, it’s vital to keep ducts clean and free of contaminants. Ducts are an ideal breeding ground for spores, and they can harbor insects or rodents. Ducts can also become clogged with dust and debris that are blown inside via your airflow vents.
Having your residential and commercial ductwork cleaned once every year will greatly reduce the possibility of contaminated air blowing into your indoor space. Sometimes, ducts can become so infested with contaminants that they can’t be cleaned and must be replaced. The NATE-trained specialists at Doug’s are certified in duct system design and ductwork installation.
A variety of factors may motivate homeowners to improve indoor air quality. Often, researching air quality equipment leads homeowners in Southern Louisiana to choose Sanuvox air purification for its comprehensive ability to destroy contaminants. Learn why your home may be a prime candidate for better air quality and how the Sanuvox air purification system uses ultraviolet (UV) lights to effectively destroy troublesome pollutants.
Air Quality Problems
What factors may motivate a homeowner or business owner to turn to Sanuvox air purification? Experts agree that most homes’ indoor air is highly contaminated by a gamut of pollutants like dander, dust, insulation particles, spores, and more.
Today’s homes are tightly sealed, whether built according to new energy-efficient guidelines or retrofitted to ensure a tightly sealed and insulated home. As a result, however, homes generally have less-than-sufficient ventilation, which means pollutants cannot escape the home.
