Indoor air quality in Raleigh NC is even more important to your family’s health than outdoor ambient pollution. When you have pollutants circulating around your home, you’re more likely to suffer from allergies and get sick—some indoor air pollutants are even carcinogenic. This is why it’s important to improve your home’s air quality.
Let’s look at 4 ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality.
1. Source Control
Source control means the elimination of causes of pollution within your home. The EPA recognizes source control as the most effective way to minimize pollutants inside your home. Quit smoking indoors, find and eliminate mold, and keep pets outside. You’ll also want to consider a carbon monoxide detector.
2. Air Conditioning
Air cleaners are another effective way to eliminate pollutants in your home. Your air conditioning system contains filters to trap dust and other pollutants. When your air conditioning is working properly, it purifies your air before recirculating it. Frequently change the filters in your air conditioning system to ensure that it continues to do its job. Indoor air purifiers are also available, which do a great job of eliminating allergens such as pollen, and viruses.
4. Duct Replacement
Damaged and leaking ducts allow cleaned, conditioned air to escape and dusty, dirty air to enter your ducts, polluting your indoor environment. Duct replacement can provide homeowners with immediate improvement in indoor air quality.
5. UV Germicidal Lights
Bacteria and viruses reduce indoor air quality and cause disease, but germs can’t escape UV lights. Your air conditioning services provider may offer UV germicidal lights, which use ultraviolet rays to kill bacteria and viruses in your home.

Gary R Jeff designed a great Mitsubishi Mini Split for my new Music Room. Julio and Marlon did a great job on the initial pre-plumb, and Julio and Jake returned to finish the install. I did have one minor glitch, and Jeff sent Barry out to take care of that. Great equipme...
Lisa G Have had nothing but positive experience working with R&S. Brittany is the front end of the company and does a great job representing company. friendly, pleasant and helpful. Provides accurate information and follows up as she says.
Sean H. I had R and S come out to my house for the second time in the last couple of years to fix an issue with our heating system, and they were able to show up quickly and promptly and fix the issue the same day. The folks I have dealt with at R and S have all been very friendly and helpful in explaining the two issues with our heater thus far. We've had very good experiences and would definitely recommend to other homeowners.
Mancy M. I would recommend R & S Mechanical at any time for those who are looking for professionalism and ability to make a major job look like it's a minor one. I contacted R & S as one of 5 suppliers and service companies to install a new unit in my house. Even though price was a factor, but I was also looking to work with an organization that would be honest and caring. I did find such values with R & S. They were the only one out of the five who actually called to follow up on their offer and ensure that everything was well explained and clear. Absolutely great guys and they made sure to keep the place clean after they left. I definitely made the right choice.
Jennifer R. I have dealt with R&S since I moved to Raleigh four years ago and they have taken consistently good care of my HVAC units. They are prompt, professional, courteous and definitely pick up after themselves. They even call me to schedule regular maintenance that comes with my service contract instead of me having to remember. I can get an appointment very quickly if something breaks on me and they always arrive early. I'm overall very satisfied.
Gail S. I have always been pleased with their service. They are quick to respond, even on weekends. I would definitely recommend them.
Carol C. Our overall experience with R&S has been exceptional. We have been homeowners for over 30 years and have never had better service, concern and respect as we have received from R&S. Highly recommend.
Barb and Jerry Our AC system failed on a Friday afternoon at our Daughter's condo. Shortly after our call, Randy and Mike came to our condo, diagnosed the unit and loaned us portable cooling units over the weekend. They installed a new system and got us up and running the following Tuesday. Their prices and service were great! Very responsive, very straight forward, no hard sell unlike the big companies. Highly recommended - excellent service!
