What is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of the air inside and around your home, especially as it relates to your health and comfort. Improving IAQ means making sure the air is free from harmful pollutants, the space is well-ventilated, and the air isn’t too humid or dry. Since most people spend a lot of time indoors, having clean indoor air is very important.

Common Pollutants in Homes

Pollutants inside your home can be tiny particles or gases that come from different places:

  • Particles: These include things like dust, pollen, animal fur, and tiny living things like mold and bacteria. These particles can cause allergies or other health problems.
  • Gases: These can come from burning things like gas stoves or candles, materials in your home like paint, or cleaning products. Some common gases are carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and other chemicals that evaporate into the air (called volatile organic compounds or VOCs).

These pollutants can enter your home from outside, or come from activities like cooking and cleaning, or from materials used in furniture and building parts.

Health Impacts

Breathing poor quality air can cause immediate problems like eye irritation, headaches, and feeling dizzy or tired. It can also lead to serious health issues over time, such as lung diseases, heart problems, and even cancer. The effects depend on what you’re breathing in and how healthy you are to start with.

Assessing Your Home’s Air Quality

If your home has poor air quality, you might notice a few clear signs. Here’s what to look out for:

  • Strange smells: Unpleasant or unfamiliar odors that don’t go away might indicate pollution sources or stagnant air in the home.
  • Stuffy or stale air: Rooms that feel stuffy or lack fresh air can be a sign of poor ventilation, which affects air quality.
  • Dust build-up: Quick accumulation of dust on surfaces shortly after cleaning can suggest high levels of particulates in your air.
  • Allergy symptoms: If you find yourself sneezing, coughing, or experiencing watery eyes more often at home, it could be a response to allergens in your indoor environment.
  • Visible mold: Spots or patches of mold in bathrooms, kitchens, or other areas suggest high moisture levels, which can degrade air quality.
  • Health issues: Persistent health symptoms like headaches, fatigue, dizziness, or respiratory problems when at home may be linked to the air quality.

When to Call the Professionals

Understanding when and why to seek professional help can ensure that your indoor environment remains safe and comfortable:

  • Identifying unseen issues: Professionals can detect pollutants and issues that aren’t obvious to the untrained eye.
  • Using advanced tools: They use equipment like air quality monitors and moisture meters to find problems and suggest solutions.
  • Custom advice: Based on the assessment, a professional can give you specific advice tailored to your home’s needs.

Air Cleaners, Filters, and Purifiers

Indoor air cleaning systems are tools we use to clean the air in our homes. They can remove things like dust, pet hair, smoke, and germs from the air. Depending on the type, they work differently and target various pollutants.

Benefits of Each Type

Air Cleaners

These are powerful units that pull in dirty air, trap the bad stuff, and push clean air back out. They are great for catching tiny particles that might cause allergies.


These are usually part of your heating or cooling systems. They catch larger stuff like dust and pet fur as air moves through your system.


These use special lights or chemicals to kill germs and viruses in the air. They are especially good if someone in your home gets sick often.


Products Offered by Infinity Heating and Cooling

Infinity Heating and Cooling offers a variety of these devices, each suited for different needs. Here are some options:


Basic Filters

Good for catching large particles. They need to be changed regularly.

High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filters

These are very fine filters that can trap really small particles that other filters might miss.

Ultraviolet (UV) Purifiers: 

These use UV light to kill bacteria and viruses in the air.


Using these tools can make the air in your home cleaner and healthier, especially in a city like Las Vegas where dust and pollen can be a problem. Infinity Heating and Cooling can help you choose the right system for your home and show you how to use it to get the best results.

Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

Keeping the right amount of moisture in the air is very important for your home’s air quality. Too much moisture can lead to mold and mildew growth, which can harm your health. On the other hand, air that’s too dry can cause problems like dry skin, irritated eyes, and making colds or respiratory issues worse. The best humidity level usually ranges between 30% and 50%.


Benefits of Humidity Control

Controlling the humidity in your home helps in several ways:


Healthier air

Proper humidity levels reduce the likelihood of getting colds and other respiratory infections. It also helps those who suffer from allergies, as well-maintained humidity levels prevent the air from becoming a breeding ground for mold and dust mites.



Balanced humidity makes the air feel more comfortable. Dry air can make the air feel colder than it actually is, while too much moisture can make it feel stuffy.


Protection for Home and Belongings

Proper humidity protects wood furniture, floors, and musical instruments from damage. Dry air can cause wood to crack, while excessive moisture can cause it to warp.


Solutions from Infinity Heating and Cooling

Infinity Heating and Cooling provides several tools to help control the humidity in your home:

  • Humidifiers: These devices add moisture to the air when it’s too dry, especially useful during the cold, dry months.
  • Dehumidifiers: These work to remove excess moisture from the air, ideal for the hot, humid months or in naturally damp areas like basements.
  • Installation and Support: Our team not only helps you choose the right device but also installs it for you. They explain how to use it effectively and offer ongoing support, ensuring that your home maintains a healthy level of humidity.

By managing indoor humidity, you create a healthier environment that benefits both the occupants and the structure of the home. Infinity Heating and Cooling has the expertise to assess your specific needs and provide the best humidity control solutions tailored for your Las Vegas home.

Ventilation Solutions

Good air flow in your home is very important. It helps keep the air fresh by pushing out the old, stale air and bringing in new, clean air from outside. This process is especially important because it helps get rid of pollutants and bad smells, which can make the air inside your home unhealthy if they build up.


Types of Ventilators

There are two main kinds of systems that help with ventilation:


Mechanical Ventilators

These systems use fans to force the old air out of your home and pull fresh air in. They are good for controlling the air flow all the time, which is helpful in places like Las Vegas where it’s very hot or very cold outside.


Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV)

These are more advanced systems. Not only do they replace stale air with fresh air, but they also save energy. They do this by capturing the energy from the outgoing air and using it to treat the incoming air. This means in the summer, the hot air coming in gets cooled down, and in the winter, the cold air coming in gets warmed up. This makes your home more comfortable and saves on heating and cooling costs.
