Today, it’s all about being healthy. But what about the air in our homes? Dust, dirt, pollen and mold can make untreated indoor air up to 100 times worse than outdoor air. In fact, indoor air quality is one of the EPA’s top 3 health concerns. Since we spend 90% of our time indoors, you’ll be glad to know there are some great solutions. New air cleaners can remove bacteria, pollen, animal dander and pollutants as small as 0.01 microns. Other products such as ventilators, humidifiers, UV lamps, air purifiers and media filters can also improve your indoor air quality. These products can really help if you suffer from allergies, or live in a home with pets, infants or the elderly. They’re all great, energy-efficient ways to make your home more comfortable. And healthy!

Heating and air conditioning systems work hard. They cycle on and off, starting and stopping 4 to 8 times an hour. It’s like driving your car in city traffic and shutting it off at every stoplight. That’s why it makes sense to have someone inspect and maintain your system twice a year. Components need adjustment, calibration, lubrication, and cleaning before each heating or cooling season starts. These checks help to identify and stop small problems before they become big ones. And help ensure safe operation. Overall, they help your system run at peak efficiency. Studies have shown a cost savings of over 32 dollars a month. It’s not hard to do the math to see what you’ll save. It’s a way to save money and save energy.
