What Exactly Is Indoor Air Quality?
Indoor air quality refers to air quality within the buildings we live, work or spend any time in and it is known to affect our health, comfort and well-being. According to the Government of Canada*, air contaminants and pollutants present in the air can lead to health concerns.
There are number of allergens and substances of concern including dust, cigarette smoke and so-called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emitted as gases from household products like paints and aerosols. Other fine particles that reduce the quality of the air we breathe include mold, fungi, bacteria, dust mites, pollen and spores.
Indoor Air Quality Products
At Reliance®, we have a number of air purifiers and humidifiers that could help improve the quality of the air in your home. A Home Comfort Advisor can outline all the options for you and help you choose the the air purification system that suits your needs and budget. Our Indoor Air Quality Systems can work with your existing furnace or may be bundled with a new heating and cooling system.

The best way to improve your indoor air quality is to improve your ventilation and provide more fresh outside air to your living space. An HRV or ERV can supply clean, fresh air, and recover energy from the exhaust air.
Rent or Buy: What’s the smart choice?
A Reliance Indoor Air Quality System is a smart investment in your family’s wellbeing. When it comes to the decision to rent or buy, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- If you rent, you’ll pay for your system through affordable monthly payments which can simplify your household budget.
- Your rental fee covers servicing and most repairs.
- Buying involves an upfront cost.
- Owning means you’ll be responsible for repairs after your equipment warranty expires.
Schedule a consultation to have a Home Comfort Advisor walk you through both options, so you can make the right choice for your home and your budget.
