What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality Issues?
Many factors affect IAQ. The most common culprits include:
- Poor ventilation
- Recent remodeling
- High or low humidity
- Cleaning and personal care products
- Burning of fossil fuels
- Unmaintained HVAC systems
- Mold and mildew
- Dust mites
Many homeowners mistake symptoms of poor indoor air quality as respiratory issues such as colds or allergies. However, repeated or continual exposure to indoor pollutants can result in severe health conditions. Taking proactive measures to improve your air quality goes a long way toward mitigating the adverse effects of poor IAQ.
When to Get Your Air Ducts Cleaned
Your home’s ductwork system sits behind layers of flooring and sheetrock, so detecting duct issues can be tricky. You’ll need to keep an eye out for these signs that your air ducts need professional cleaning:
- You have mold in your HVAC system.
- Your home was just built or has undergone a major renovation.
- You’ve noticed your HVAC costs climbing.
- Your home is very dusty no matter how often you clean it.
At RCL Mechanical, we use the latest technology and equipment to ensure exceptional duct cleaning results. If your HVAC system needs more than duct cleaning and requires repair or replacement, we can help.

How Often Should You Replace Your Air Filter?
Air filters trap dust, pet hair, and other unwanted particles so that your HVAC system delivers fresh, clean air into your home.

To determine the best schedule for changing your air filters, consider the following factors:
- Whether you have allergies or health issues such as asthma.
- How frequently you run your system.
- Whether you own pets.
- Where you live.
- The size of your property.
