(December 14, 2017) – With lower temperatures in the Valley comes the unwelcome visitor that has become all too familiar – that brown cloud that hovers over Phoenix. Coughs, colds and allergies caused by particulates follow soon after because the air outdoor is so saturated. What many Valley residents don’t think about while they are trying to escape the clutches of the outdoor air is what happens inside their home, where the air can actually have lower quality.
Chas Roberts A/C & Plumbing does thousands of installs of brand new HVAC systems every year in the greater Phoenix area, they also repair and service thousands more. They see first-hand how often indoor air quality is ignored and how it can be improved. After 75 years in business in Phoenix, they have seen what works and what doesn’t. The company wants the public to know how to improve conditions inside their house so that those winter illnesses brought on by air quality don’t stick around any longer than they need to:
If your home does not have any natural ventilation features like a mechanical ventilator that pushes clean air through your ducts can greatly improve indoor air quality.
Just because your A/C is no longer running, doesn’t mean your air filters aren’t important. They’re probably in need of being changed. If you’re running your heater now, even more so.
These air purifiers use a method called corona discharge to create charged air molecules called ions. These ions neutralize the air molecules that make your indoor air unhealthy to breathe.
This is the time of year that fireplaces may be used occasionally. In the cozy warmth they provide, you may not realize just how many particles the burning of wood releases into your home. If you want to keep the air inside your home as clean and particle-free as possible, skip the wood burning.
