Here’s why indoor air quality matters here in Buffalo homes
It’s school and college graduation season, as well as the start of summer. While you’re planning a summer vacation to get out of the house for some fresh air, you really should take some time to think about how to bring more of that freshness back into your home. Here’s why indoor air quality matters.
In this blog, we’ll make the case for scheduling an indoor air quality test from our team here at Reimer. By improving your indoor air quality, you can live more comfortably, lower the impact of allergies, and spend the summer healthier.

Poor air quality can aggravate your allergies
Springtime here in Buffalo is bad enough for your allergies without poor indoor air quality playing a role. However, trapped pollen, dust, and other contaminants in your home’s air can easily bring the misery of your allergies inside.
This is just one of the reasons that the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America notes that indoor air quality is just as important as outdoor air quality. Dust mites, mold spores, pet hair, and more can trigger an allergic reaction for homeowners.
If you’ve been sneezing, coughing, or experiencing headaches in your home, it might be a good time to call Reimer and schedule an indoor air quality test.
It can make you and your family sick
Beyond just allergies, poor indoor air can actually make you sick. Here’s why: trapped indoor air is a safe haven for airborne viruses and bacteria. Have you ever had an illness that impacted every family member, turn-by-turn? That’s probably because of their close proximity to one another in a closed space, with stale air filled with viruses and bacteria.
The team here at Reimer can install advanced air purification equipment in your home to help clean and purify your air. For example, we have UV purification equipment that kills airborne bacteria and viruses.
In fact, a UV device is on CNN’s list of some of the best ways to eliminate the flu virus in your home.
Bad air often smells bad
This might seem secondary to the other concerns, but it does matter. Poor indoor air quality and circulation issues mean that all sorts of bad odors are trapped in your home, just stewing.
From pet and body odors to dust and dirt and to, well, everything you’ve cooked in the last month, your house can start to smell pretty bad.
When you schedule your indoor air quality test this spring, be sure to ask your Reimer tech to assess the source of various odors in the air.
Adjust your humidity to be more comfortable
Indoor air quality isn’t just about what’s in your air. If your home’s air has been too dry or too humid, it’s time to have Reimer help adjust your humidity to a comfortable level.
In the summers, humidity tends to spike. This makes your home feel warmer, meaning that you have to use more air conditioning to keep cool. In the winter, the opposite effect happens, and you need to add humidity to make your home comfortable again.
Reimer has a wide variety of home humidification and dehumidification solutions. If your home has been uncomfortable so far this summer, give us a call to schedule an indoor air quality test.
