With allergy season just around the corner, many people are already retreating indoors. After all, home is a safe haven from the outside pollutants, right? Unfortunately, if you have been neglecting your indoor air quality, your home’s air may be no better than outside. But don’t start losing hope yet! If you want to keep your home safe from allergies this spring, all you need to do is follow these simple tips:

1. Lower the Humidity

Mold and mildew thrive in moist and humid areas. This is especially true in parts of the house that are colder and damper. Places such as your basement, bathroom and laundry room may be riddled with pollutants, lowering your indoor air quality. To keep the humidity out, try adding a portable dehumidifier to darker, damper sections of your house. Also, make sure that your HVAC system has a built-in dehumidifier to minimize the moisture throughout the entire house.

2. Change Your Filter

There is nothing worse for indoor air quality than a dirty filter! While they may be easy to forget about, a dirty air filter will let in all types of outdoor pollutants and allergens. Make sure that you are changing your air filter at least once a month for the freshest, cleanest air.

3. Spring Cleaning

It can be easy to neglect the dusting. However, simple cleaning can have a huge impact on our home’s air. Homes that are dusted regularly have a much better air quality than those that are not. Dusting is especially important if anyone living in the house has allergies. Give your home a good dusting at least once a week to keep your air fresh.

4. Try a Natural Air Filter

While it may seem strange, a simple houseplant can boost your home’s indoor air quality. Many houseplants, such as Aloe Vera, spider plants and Boston ferns, are great at filtering out harmful household toxins. Adding just a few houseplants throughout the home can purify your air.

5. Don’t Skip Your AC Maintenance

One of the worst things a homeowner can do for their indoor air quality is skip their biannual AC maintenance! Your AC needs to be inspected and cleaned twice a year to ensure it is running its best and keeping your air clean. During an AC maintenance checkup, your AC’s vents, coils and condenser unit will all be thoroughly cleaned. This makes sure that no dust, mold, pollutants or other allergens are getting inside your of home.

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
