Improve Indoor Air Quality and Keep Your Home Healthy

Posted on March 24, 2017

Sneezing, coughing, stuffy sinuses, and watering eyes. How often is that happening in your home? If too many times to count, then you need to call your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) experts at General Air Conditioning & Plumbing now.

Poor IAQ can often make seasonal allergies worse. The first key to keeping your air healthy is proper circulation that allows fresh air into the house to help move germs and other contaminants out.

You can’t depend on just your HVAC system to do the job. In fact, properly installed ventilation can make a home easier to cool, decreasing the workload on your cooling system. The General and his troops don’t have to tell you how important that is during our long, hot summers in our beautiful California desert. Proper attic ventilation and insulation can also save money by extending the life of your attic and roof structure.

Studies show most Americans spend 70% of their time indoors and much of it is inside the home. Poor indoor air quality can be a factor in headache, fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness and nausea. In the long term, it is considered a risk factor for asthma and lung disease. Poor IAQ ranks as one of the top 10 issues affecting overall health.

So, after we improve the air circulation in your house, then we can talk with you about how to make the air cleaner. There are so many choices it can be confusing for our clients. That’s why General Air Conditioning & Plumbing has indoor air quality specialists who use the AirAdvice for Homes™ system, a premier method for measuring IAQ in the home. After reviewing the levels discovered in your home with you, we can recommend a plan of action to improve the IAQ immediately.

One option the General recommends is the Nature’s Home OxyQuantum dual light LED bulb. It produces ultraviolet light both in the UVC and UVV spectrum to better kill germs and sanitize the air. It is mounted in the ductwork, and it treats the conditioned air as it is moved to the living areas of your home.

Another great option is to make use of a ductless air conditioner, also called mini split heating and cooling systems. Just as the name implies, they work without ducts to greatly reduce the amount of dust and allergens blowing around your home.

So remember, you shouldn’t have to put up with sneezing, coughing, and watering eyes inside your own home. Instead call the “Best Little Air Conditioning and Plumbing Company in the Desert”, General Air Conditioning & Plumbing. Our professionals will show you how we can improve your IAQ and at the same time take care of all your service, repair, and maintenance needs.
