Does indoor air quality even matter? Is it just a big hoax?


For some reason, this is what you read whenever it comes to indoor air quality. It tends to always be overkill. 

The honest truth is that millions of people live with poor air quality every day. 

They aren’t dying. They aren’t contracting diseases that you can’t pronounce, and they aren’t turning into zombies.

But, let me be clear, I am NOT saying that the air quality inside your home has no effect on your health. I’m just saying that it isn’t life or death.

So let’s get to the truth.

The truth is that so many people deal with allergies, asthma, and the common cold that they just accept it is a normal part of life. 

They don’t realize that the air in their home could be causing or heightening these symptoms. They don’t realize that allergies should get better when you’re inside- not worse.

That’s what we’re here to tell you. 

Your 5-year-old doesn’t have to have a sneeze attack every time he comes inside “because it’s allergy season”. 

You don’t have to smell puppy breath everywhere just because you have a dog. 

You don’t have to have asthma flare-ups just because you’re indoors.

Now I know that most people don’t want to buy a new AC unit or an upgrade to their unit just because of allergies, and that’s ok.

Don’t get me wrong- we’ll gladly help you out if allergies, odors, or asthma are a big deal for your family. Give us a call at 801-218-2187 and we’ll talk solutions. 

BUT the majority of people aren’t willing to put more than a couple of bucks into it, and we get it. So here are a few simple suggestions to improve the air in your home.

Not everyone can do this because of little toddlers that love dirt, but if you can it keeps everything fresh in a BIG way.

Outdoor air is probably the best way to improve your ventilation. Opening a window allows air to go out and in as it pleases. This keeps air pollution from circulating through your home for as long as it wants.

I know this is like the dentist telling you to floss, but it’s because it is the KEY to keeping your AC unit running like a champ. 

These filters are there to get as much pollution out of your air as possible, so please make sure you change them often!

We hope this helps to keep your air fresh and to cut down on allergy and asthma symptoms.

Give us a call at 801-218-2187 if you’ve got any questions.

Here to help,

Easton Frisby Did a fantastic job on maintenance and repair of our furnace. He answered many of my questions that were very complicated and couldn’t be answered by previous HVAC technicians from other companies. I hate paying money for things like air conditioner and heating maintenance, but they did such a good job that I signed up for a maintenance plan.

Taylor was awesome and able to return in a timely matter with part needed. Jeff was able to quickly diagnose what was going on with my system! Kayla was very helpful along with Rachel in office getting my rental unit scheduled very fast compared to other companies.
