Indoor Air Quality in Cherry Hill, NJ
The air inside your home, the air you and your family members breathe every day, is filled with many tiny molecules and particles—and many of them may be unhealthy.

The Indoor Air Quality Dilemma
The drop in indoor air quality in homes (and commercial buildings as well) is a side–effect of improvements made in home performance. The modern home is sealed against the outside to prevent heat loss during winter and heat gain in summer, increasing general energy efficiency. However, a building this well–sealed from the outdoors lacks fresh air circulation, and the many contaminants from indoor sources—which includes construction material, paint, hobby supplies, cosmetics, cleaning products, and more—will grow in concentration because they have nowhere to escape.
Opening up doors and windows can help, but this means disrupting the comfort and energy efficiency of the house. This is why air quality systems are helpful: they can solve IAQ problems without harming home performance.
What Type of Air Quality Systems Will Help Your House?
There is no "one size fits all" air filter to clean a home’s air. Often, a number of different systems need to be installed in a home to handle air quality issues. Below are some of the ones we work with:
- Air filters/air purifiers: Filters are a good basic starting place, trapping contaminants in mesh. They often need to be paired with electronic air purifiers, which are capable of removing the more minute contaminants (such as smoke and chemicals) that passes through filters.
- Humidifiers/dehumidifiers: Indoor air can grow stuffy during the year, and sometimes can become too dry. Neither condition is healthy, comfortable, or good for furnishings. Finding the right balance of humidity can require a whole–house humidifier, dehumidifier, or both.
- Energy and heat recovery ventilators: These are an answer to the problem of allowing fresh air into the house without putting extra strain on either the AC or heater. Heat and energy recovery ventiators pre–heat or pre–cool currents or air brought from the outside.
