Breathe in Fresh, Clean Air
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that:
- 50% of all illnesses are caused and/or aggravated by polluted indoor air.
- The air in your home is up to seven times more polluted than outdoor air.
- Chemical gases that emanate from carpeting, adhesives, paint, furnishings, and household cleaners account for 31% of contaminants in the air.
Based on these facts, it’s safe to say proper air quality is crucial. From humidity control to duct cleaning and sealing, we do whatever it takes to ensure your air is as clean as it should be. So go ahead and take a deep breath—we’ve got it covered.

The Importance of Good Air Quality for Old Homes
Older homes have unique indoor air quality (IAQ) challenges. For instance, they lack the same level of sealing for windows, doors, and attics that newer homes have. And the gaps in these areas often allow irritants to make their way inside, where they can overwhelm an HVAC system’s filtering capabilities.
Common issues that affect IAQ in older homes include:
- Poorly insulated attics
- Old or no ductwork
- Poor airflow
- Outdated thermostats
- Lack of zoning
IAQ services from American Vintage Home ensure your home’s air quality is as healthy and free from irritating pollutants as it can be.
Our Indoor Air Quality Services
Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers
Advanced technologies make it easier than ever to maintain the perfect balance of humidity in your older home. The right humidifier or dehumidifier lets you take control of your home’s indoor air quality once and for all! We offer a full range of IAQ products and services, including repairs, installations, maintenance, and a home analysis.
The typical home loses about 20% of the air that moves through its ductwork to leaks. Our duct cleaning and sealing services ensure you aren’t paying more to be less comfortable! American Vintage Home uses Aeroseal ® technology to seal your home’s air ducts and help you save money and energy.
A more energy-efficient home is great for your wallet, but it’s not always great for your home’s IAQ. Once a home is sealed, allergens and pollutants can build up in your air and damage furniture, put a strain on HVAC equipment, and increase symptoms in people with allergies. An air filtration system from American Vintage Home improves indoor air and helps you save on energy costs.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Odorless, tasteless, and colorless, carbon monoxide is also deadly, causing hundreds of deaths every year. Reliable and accurate carbon monoxide detectors alert you to danger immediately and protect everyone inside the home from danger.
