What’s In My Air?

From best practices to the best air purifiers, we promise to provide you with all the information and products you need to breathe clean, pure air.

Common Air Pollutants

The particles in your air will vary depending on your climate and home, but there are some common contaminants that are in most Winder, GA homes. A professional IAQ test will be able to pinpoint exactly what you’re facing.


Gases are especially important to know about in your home because they can become dangerous at high levels of exposure. Unlike most other particles, you can’t usually filter out gases, so being aware of their presence is essential. Here are some common gases that can appear in your home:

  • VOCs
  • CO
  • NO2

Using detectors or air quality tests can help you keep tabs on healthy versus dangerous gas levels in your home. 


Living things, and byproducts from living things, are the most persistent kind of pollutant to deal with. From the tiniest seed of pollen to the scariest virus, biological contaminants use our air to travel and spread, including inside our homes. These are some of the things you should be aware of:

  • Pet dander
  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • Mold
  • Pollen
  • Pest excrement

Even tiny insects or pests in your attic can leave behind urine or shed fur that makes its way into your air. Trace amounts of allergens may not make a big difference, but the prolonged accumulation of these pollutants can significantly reduce your air quality.


Homeowners in areas of high humidity struggle to keep the moisture out of their homes. It’s extremely easy for humidity levels to soar in your home, but feeling sticky is the least of your worries! Humidity encourages mold to grow in your home and HVAC system. Most mold growth can be dealt with quickly, but if it’s allowed to spread, it can invade your air ducts, AC unit and filters quickly.


Even the most organic households can experience the presence of pesticides. Dirt and substances that attach to your shoes and clothes outside come in when you do. While it’s hard to limit pesticides getting into your home, you can reduce the amount with a few easy habits. 

  • Vacuum regularly
  • Leave shoes at the door
  • Do laundry often

Plus, if you do use insecticides to combat annoying bugs, consider switching to organic or pesticide-free products. There are some natural bug repellants that are effective, and they don’t cause pesticides to sneak into your air uninvited!

What Our Customers Have To Say

Had Us Up and Running in a Couple of Hours

Tanner was our service tech. Our heat quit on a Friday night and I called Absolute Comfort Air on Saturday morning. Tanner came to our home about an hour and a half after my phone call and diagnose the problem, explained the circumstances, and gave me a detailed quote. He then proceeded to make the repair.  He worked steadily and had us up and running in a couple of hours. Tanner was very polite, explained things in detail, and answered my questions very patiently. Thank you for a job well done.

Simply The Best!

I’ve been without heat since Saturday when my heat pump went out. I called Absolute Comfort and Alex came out and confirmed that after 19 years it had died. Kevin came out yesterday morning and he and Mark came this morning to check on things. Wayne and D.J. installed my new system. My house is warmer than it’s been in years and I wanted to thank you all for the fast, courteous and efficient manner you took care of my problem. Y’all are simply the best!!

I had a service technician by the name of Tanner visit my house today and go through a check list of all the components of my HVAC and found everything to be good and working at it’s best. He was very professional, courteous, and explained everything to me when he completed his work so I could understand it all.
