Our Indoor Air Quality Services

GAC Services is a leading provider of air quality services and products in Maryland, including:

Air Cleaners and Filtration

Here in Maryland, dust and pollen plague most homes and businesses, worsening allergies, causing many common illnesses, and harming respiratory health — not to mention making keeping your home clean a never-ending battle! Air filtration systems make your life many times easier, catching and filtering out harmful particles and allergens from your home air.

Air cleaners are typically installed inside ductwork or in a central location within the home; we’ll help you choose the best location for your air filtration installation!

Air Purifiers

While filtration systems are exceptionally good at filtering out many common pollutants, purifiers take things a step further. Rather than catch harmful particles, a purifier aims to totally eradicate them, completely removing them from the air and home itself.

An air purification installation targets many of the harder-to-handle air pollutants, including eradicating mold spores, bacteria, and pathogens, and even helps to reduce odors in the home caused by smoke, pets, cooking, and more.

UV Light Purifiers in Maryland

A specific subset of air purification systems, UV light purifiers harness the power of UV-C radiation, a powerful germicidal light that mimics the natural purification properties of the sun. UV light systems have rapidly become one of the more popular and effective options for home use and are excellent at reducing the presence of mold and pathogens from home air.

Whole-Home Humidifier Installation

Is the air in your home dry and dusty, leaving you wrestling with dry skin, exacerbated allergies, and constant discomfort? If so, we’re not surprised. Our climate tends to leave homes well below the optimal humidity range of 35% to 50%, which causes all kinds of uncomfortable side effects, in addition to stressing wooden furniture and paint, and even increasing the likelihood of static shock.

Our home humidifier systems from Aprilaire help you get the comfortable, clean air you need! Whole-home humidifiers work in tandem with your HVAC system, helping to distribute adequate moisture throughout the house.

Commonly Asked Air Quality Questions

What is good indoor air quality?

Indoor air quality is called “good” when it has low levels of common indoor air pollutants, including:

  • Radon
  • Asthma and allergy triggers
  • Smoke
  • Mold
  • Carbon monoxide

Indoor air quality is poor when these levels are high enough to cause health problems. If you’re noticing problems with headaches, breathing, asthma, allergies, and skin conditions, you may be dealing with indoor air quality problems.

Why does indoor air quality matter?

Indoor air quality is an important part of your family’s health. When indoor air quality is compromised, you may notice more respiratory issues, headaches, and a general sense of unwellness. Protecting your indoor air quality means protecting your family’s health.

How does humidity level affect indoor air quality?

Humidity plays a role in indoor air quality. If the home is too humid, then you may notice mold and mildew growth. If the home is too dry, your skin may feel uncomfortable, and you may have more respiratory problems. Dry air can also damage wood items inside your home. Depending on the current humidity levels in your home, dehumidifiers and humidifiers can help.

Can I test my own indoor air quality?

You can test some indoor air quality problems on your own, such as radon and carbon monoxide. Home detectors can measure levels of the gas in your home so you can know if you should seek professional remediation. To measure allergens, mold, dust, and other indoor air pollutants, you will need the services of a professional indoor air quality team.

Can houseplants improve indoor air quality?

Yes, houseplants can help with indoor air quality. They do not replace air cleaners and filtration systems, but they can remove some toxins from the air and circulate oxygen in your home.

What indoor air quality devices do I need?

The best way to choose the right indoor air quality devices for your home is to have a professional assessment so you can target your specific indoor air quality problems. Some options to clean your indoor air include;

  • Ventilation
  • Air cleaners
  • Air scrubbers
  • Filtration
