Take Steps Today to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

With fires raging all over California and air in some cities being certified as the most dangerous air in the world, it is time for California homeowners to take action. While you cannot control what is happening outside your home, there are steps you can take to improve the air quality in your home.

Keep reading to find out how you can take steps today to improve your home’s air quality. Then reach out to Econo West Heating, Air & Plumbing at (661) 269-0308 to begin the process.

Indoor air quality can be worse than exterior air quality

While this is not likely true at the moment, it is generally true that certain indoor air pollutants, such as pollen, dust, and VOCs can be as much as five times higher than they are outdoors. Considering the fact that the average person spends about 90% of their time inside, it is easy to see how important it is to maintain good indoor air quality. We offer air purifying technology that can trap and get rid of 99% of allergens in your home.

We offer the highest quality air purifiers and filters

Most of today’s buildings have tightly sealed envelopes, which is the right choice when owners want to ensure that the building is as energy efficient as possible. Unfortunately, it has the negative impact of reducing the quality of indoor air. If you have a building envelope that does not have enough room for your property to breath, then there could be serious repercussions such as an unhealthy accumulation of allergens, odors, and other pollutants.

The good news is that we can help by installing dedicated air purification units, or by offering much higher quality filters than the ones that are generally in the home.

Do you know what’s in your indoor air?

It is common for homeowners to have no idea what’s in their indoor air. The common types of indoor air contaminants include skin flakes, dust, pet dander, smoke, pollen, mold, viruses, and VOCs (gases given off by adhesives, plywood, and other products).

These indoor air contaminants do make your indoor air unhealthy and they can make it harder to breathe, but they have another negative consequence: They can affect how well your HVAC system works. If your filter gets clogged with dust, debris, and other pollutants, then the air flow will be poor. This will lead to less air getting circulated in your home, which means that your HVAC system must work harder yet will get poorer results.
