Tips for Improving the Indoor Air Quality in Your Home

air-quality
Your home is ripe with mold spores, pollen, dust mites, and other irritating allergens. Breathe easy with the following tips on indoor air quality from Precision Air and Plumbing.

Control Humidity

  • run bathroom fans for 15 minutes after showers
  • empty and clean evaporator trays in dehumidifiers and AC units
  • check your central AC drain for clogs regularly
  • repair roof and plumbing leaks
  • insulate properly to reduce condensation

Clean Regularly

Vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning surfaces prevents allergen accumulation. A HEPA-filter vacuum bag or filter reduces the ejection of vacuumed particles from the device.

No Smoking

Only allow smoking outdoors. Limit candle and incense burning, and other soot-producing activities.

Tidy Bedrooms

Wash sheets, pillows, pillowcases, and comforters every 10 days- more if you have severe allergies. Use hot water to kill dust mites.

Air It Out

On days with low pollen counts, open your doors and windows to circulate air. Room filtration units are ideal for highly allergenic individuals.

Use Quality Filters

High-performance filters prevent trapped microorganisms from multiplying on filter surfaces. Check your air filters every three months and replace them according to manufacturer recommendations. Ensure filters are attached securely around edges and have no gaps.

Control Pests

Strange but true: many asthmatics are triggered by allergens from roaches, and dried rodent urine is a potent allergen.

Vent Properly

Ensure combustible appliances, stoves, furnaces, water heaters, etc., are unobstructed and properly vent outside; regularly service appliances according to manufacturers’ directions. Air duct cleaning, sealing, and attic vents contribute to effective ventilation and reduce by-product buildup. Only use unvented gas or kerosene heaters in open spaces with a cracked window. Check flues and chimneys for debris and cracks.

The HVAC professionals at Precision Air and Plumbing would be happy to answer your questions about improving indoor air quality. We offer many services that benefit your home’s overall health, including air duct cleaning, attic vent options, and helpful AC maintenance plans.  Schedule an appointment online or to speak with a Precision Air and Plumbing representative about air duct cleaning and other home improvement services, call 602-fix-my-ac.

      I wanted to make sure my air conditioner was ready for summer. Fernando came out and made sure my unit was tip top. He was friendly, professional and not a sales man. Thanks Fernando!

      Thank you Ray at Precision Air...the compressor on our AC went out last night and the house was HOT. This morning Ray was there to replace the compressor and had us feeling the cool air again in no time. Great customer service...quick response time and friendly from the first call until the repair was completed. Ray even offered to clean the filters! Thank you!!

      Precision Air is a company of integrity. I signed up with them August 1st, 2019 for their AC maintenance plan for 2 years... Someone from their office called me a week ago to set up their yearly maintenance visit. SO GRATEFUL.

      It was time to replace our AC, and so our choice was Precision Air, as we've been with them for over 20 years. Teman & Julian did an excellent job on the installation today, arriving on time.
