Indoor Air Quality
Our Indoor Air Quality Services & Products Provide Clean Comfort for Your Home
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average person takes between 17,280 and 23,040 breaths each day. That’s pretty incredible. However, when you consider what you are possibly inhaling with each breath, it means what’s happening in our bodies could be pretty scary.
There is pollution everywhere, and with the level of contamination known to exist outdoors, it doesn’t help that the EPA has found indoor air to be as much as 100 times more polluted than the outdoor air. Whether at home, school, places of business, or work, we can spend a lot of time indoors over the course of a day. While individually, we can’t do much about the outdoor air, we can exercise meaningful control over our indoor air.
Your Local Indoor Air Quality Specialists
Samm’s Heating and Air Conditioning has been providing beneficial HVAC service to customers in the region for over 10 years, with the owner having more than 27 years of experience in the HVAC field. We like to take a comprehensive approach to HVAC service. We don’t just provide HVAC products, repair, and maintain your system — we look at overall indoor comfort. One thing our years in the industry has shown us is that a problem in one area can create problems in others.
If your indoor air quality is compromised, heating and cooling efficiency can be affected. Debris accumulated within the system slows performance and can even damage parts. Your heating and cooling systems will have to work harder to provide the right level of air conditioning, which in turn, causes an increase in energy consumption. Even worse, that polluted air will continue circulating throughout your home.
Poor indoor air is not only reflected in higher energy bills, and difficulty heating and cooling your home, it can eventually take a toll on health. We make the following recommendations for customers to manage indoor air quality.
- Clean regularly and thoroughly
- Set up reminders so you can clean or replace your filters
- Eliminate or reduce the use of chemicals indoors, and seal and store them properly
- Watch activities that increase humidity in the home to reduce opportunities for contaminants
- Have your indoor air tested — especially if you suspect IAQ problems
Annual heating and cooling system maintenance is another effective way to rid your HVAC system of pollutants. You can schedule maintenance in spring for your air conditioner and fall, for your heater.
