Most homeowners like to think of air pollution as something that occurs outside their home. However, our houses are not as safe as we may think. In fact, many times, homeowners are the ones bringing dangerous and harmful pollutants inside the house. Here are three facts that every homeowner needs to know about their indoor air quality (IAQ).

Poor IAQ Is a Leading Health Risk

Indoor air quality is listed among the top five environmental risks, even more so than outdoor air quality. And it’s no wonder. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that the air we breathe indoors could be up to five times more polluted than the air outside.

And if that’s not bad enough, the EPA has also found that indoor air quality has been linked with both immediate and long-term health effects. Just some of the side effects of poor IAQ include:

– Eye irritation

– Sore throat

– Headaches

– Dizziness

– Fatigue

– Serious respiratory diseases

We Bring In Most Pollutants

While we may assume that pollutants come from the air outside, most are actually brought in through cleaning and other household items. Many cleaning sprays, air fresheners and even candles have harmful, carcinogenic chemicals in them. These can cause very serious illnesses and respiratory conditions.

It’s vital that whenever you use household cleaners, the area is well ventilated. Ventilation helps remove these and other harmful air pollutants from your air, protecting your home’s IAQ.

We Spend Most of Our Time Inside

While most of us would love nothing more than to spend all day outdoors, it doesn’t usually happen like that. In fact, between work, school and home, nearly all of our time is spent indoors.

This means our indoor air quality is one of the most important parts of our homes! We need to take care it so of our guests and families can breathe easy.

The technicians are on time and personable. They have always laid out all of my options for me and have never tried to force me into something I wasn’t sure of – for example purchasing a new system. Even my old broken-down piece of garbage was able to be serviced by them back into functioning. I was able to get an appointment quickly and they were able to work with me to get the service done in a timely fashion.

Twice we needed a split unit air conditioner replaced, and twice these guys were really terrific. I never look for the lowest price, but I have a sense of what is a fair price, and the price they gave me was better than fair. The salesman was terrifically honest, and when I asked him if he would recommend any additional work, he said no. The installers were terrific.

Great service!! I had 2 techs come out on different times both told me the same thing. They did not try to sell me any extra services or a new unit. They both went beyond what I expected. They also educated me on a few things Which i found to be true through my own research. Really glad I found them and their prices are very reasonable.

We service, repair, and install all makes and models
