Indoor Air Quality is important! Industry surveys show that people spend 90% of their time indoors, where pollutants are two to five times great than outdoors (*per the EPA). While air quality is certainly a concern for those who have allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems, poor air quality has been proven to cause a host of problems for everyone in your home, i.e., headaches, trouble sleeping just to name a few!
We offer and install a wide variety of indoor air quality solutions – from state of the art Filtration Systems to Air Purifiers, Humidifiers, Dehumidifiers and more, we’ll help you increase the quality of air in your home. Even a small improvement can have a great impact on the health of your family and quality of life.
These air purifying systems work in conjunction with and by filtering air through your existing heating and cooling system. They have been proven to reduce air pollutants, mold, bacteria, dust and dander by 95-99%.
This powerful ultraviolet light system is placed inside your ductwork or near your HVAC to sterilize your home. While it is often used by hospitals, it’s great for asthma sufferers as it significantly lowers the mold level in your home and outright kills up to 97% of bacteria and viruses.
A whole home system is part of your HVAC system. Low humidity can make your home chilly, dry your skin and weaken your immune system. Too much humidity makes your home damp and a perfect environment for mold growth. A whole-home system works much more efficiently and can be less costly than a portable system to balance the humidity in your home and, either cut down on respiratory infections and allergy and asthma symptoms, or get rid of dry, damaging air.
A whole home ventilating system improves air quality by balancing humidity and getting rid of pollutants, mold, dust and dander in your home. It circulates air, and swaps stuffy polluted air inside your home with clean outdoor air. If you have a Heat Recovery Ventilator, heat from the outgoing air is transferred to the incoming air. If you have an Energy Recovery Ventilator, heat from the outgoing air is transferred to incoming air, but during warmer months, more moisture is released in the process to keep air less humid.

Common reasons your heater may fail
A faulty pump or other electrical part, a dead blower capacitor, or an improperly calibrated furnace are all reasons we get calls when a heater goes out. However, the majority of our calls are due to lack of maintenance and dirty systems. If your heat goes out, give us a call. To prevent a no-heat situation, a low-cost annual inspection is highly recommended, and especially for snow birds to prevent freezing of water pipes during the winter.
How To Prevent a frozen AC line
Losing your ac on a hot summer day can be a nightmare. While it’s hard to believe your AC can freeze in the heat, it’s actually a common, but often preventable problem. Start by keeping your system’s evaporator coils clean and by changing the filters every one to three months. In general, your outside unit should be free of any debris, and always schedule regular maintenance annually.
Optimal thermostat setting for winter
For maximum savings and comfort, the thermostat setting for winter months should be adjusted according to your habits. We recommend setting your thermostat to 68 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, and then adjusting when home. You can also see a substantial savings (15% or more) in your heating bill by turning your thermostat down 10 or more degrees at night.
How smart thermostats really save you money
Any thermostat will save you money by setting temperatures higher during cooling and lower during heating. But a smart thermostat does it better than any human can, even better than those with programmable thermostats because it never forgets! It detects when you are home, when you leave and it knows when you sleep. We can help you decide if a smart thermostat is “smart” for your home, call us today.
How often should I change my filters?
Simply put, clean filters save you money while dirty filters cause your system to work harder and use more energy. Also, even in the most immaculate homes, air filters improve air quality, helping those who may suffer from asthma and allergies. While every home is different, a good rule of thumb is to change filters every 1 to 3 months and watch for signs that your filter may need replacing (excessive dust, system running more often or visibly dirty filter).
Warning Signs your Heating And/Or AC is about to break
Typically, a good working heating or ac unit keeps you comfortable and is quiet and odorless. Poor performance, unpleasant odors and strange noises coming from your system are all signs your system may completely fail soon. Also, if you have noticed a lot of dust in the air, or a rise in utility bills, if may be time to contact us to avoid a no-heat and no-air situation.
