The Guide to Profiting From Indoor Air Quality

Updated November 2, 2020

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is an exciting trade that’s currently booming due to greater concerns about health and airborne virus transmission. Beyond mitigating the spread of illness, IAQ services can also help those with respiratory problems and aid in maintaining good humidity levels. Learning air quality control skills can help you offer more value to clients via a wide range of related products and services. Here’s the guide for home services professionals to profiting from indoor air quality.

Offer IAQ Products and Services

When you start IAQ training, you won’t only learn about the mechanics of indoor air quality. You’ll also learn about applicable technical solutions and how to sell relevant services and products. The most basic of all indoor air quality services is an air assessment. This all provides the necessary information to proceed with custom solutions.

Indoor Air Quality Assessment

This is the starting point for any IAQ business. As you start attracting clients and gain interest in your services, the assessment is the first step to judge the quality of air in the building. You’ll know what’s ideal, what could be better and what products and services will solve your clients’ specific problems.

Germicidal UV Lights

Germicidal UV lights have powerful purification qualities that are lethal to many forms of infectious bacteria. Airborne bacteria, mold spores, and residual contagions on surfaces are vulnerable to well-placed UV lights, specifically in those wet and dark areas one often overlooks where unsavory things can build up. The effectiveness and ease of these lights have prompted a rise in public interest. Now is the ideal time to train in and understand the importance of antibacterial lights in IAQ.

MERV 13 Filters

Throwaway filters often miss smaller particles, especially those responsible for the spread of viruses. A MERV rating measures the efficacy of filters. MERV 13 filters are especially capable of capturing various forms of particles such as dust, bacteria, and pollen. When you understand MERV ratings, you can easily explain to customers why they should upgrade their air filters.

Without a doubt, upgrading air filters is the easiest way home service businesses are profiting from indoor air quality.

Humidity Control Systems

Humidity control is one of the most versatile services you can offer your clients. It’s valuable both in homes that have problems with mold and high humidity, and homes with dry air. Ensuring balanced humidity in the home is important as it stifles the growth of bacteria and preserves the integrity of the home.

Take an IAQ Training Course

A modern indoor air quality training course is your gateway to this exciting new trade. Plumbers, HVAC specialists, duct cleaners, solar energy, and many more home service businesses can all incorporate this exciting new trade into their business.
