Your South Texas Indoor Air Quality Needs Help: Try a Multi-prong approach

August 15, 2013 | Blog

You’re probably very diligent about keeping your home clean. You scrub the floors, bathtubs and sinks. You dust and vacuum. But have you given much thought to your indoor air quality? The air you breathe could be much dirtier than anything that collects on your floor or in your bathtubs. It could be full of mold, bacteria, dust mites and other allergens. To make sure your indoor air is as clean as the rest of your home, take a multi-prong approach. Here are some suggestions:

Dehumidification

Your cooling system can remove considerable moisture from the air. But humidity in this region can get very high, and an A/C may not be able to do the job all by itself. To minimize the risk of mold and mildew growth, consider a dehumidifier. Although inexpensive portable units are available, a whole-house dehumidifier can do a more comprehensive job. It’s attached to your heating and cooling system.

Air cleaners

Air cleaners can effectively remove particulates and fumes from your indoor air. Like dehumidifiers, air cleaners come in portable and whole-house models. And as with dehumidifiers, you might want to consider a whole-house system.

Ventilation

Your home needs a way to get rid of the bad air. This is why exhaust fans in the kitchen and your bathrooms are a must. But in addition to getting rid of the bad air, your home needs a fresh supply of good air. This is especially important in newer homes, which are typically well sealed. Infiltration should be controlled as much as possible and allowing air in directly from outdoors is much preferred to allowing air in from the attic.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
