Indoor Air Quality Experts Ready to Serve You!
Indoor air quality is a serious health issue, but it is often overlooked. The EPA estimates that the air inside your home is 5 to 10 times more polluted than the air outside. In fact, indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air in urban areas. This is often due to the use of products like cleaners, air fresheners, and other household products that release harmful chemicals.

We will help you find the best solution for your home and create a customized plan to improve your air quality.

How Does Air Pollution Affect My Health?
The most common health issues related to poor indoor air quality are respiratory problems. As the air inside your home becomes more polluted, it can cause irritation to the eyes, nose, and throat. Additionally, it can cause respiratory problems such as asthma and bronchitis.
Poor indoor air quality can also cause headaches and fatigue. It even can be linked to cognitive issues, memory loss, and even Alzheimer's disease. It is important to note that poor indoor air quality can be a serious issue for those with existing health conditions.
What Can I Do to Improve My Air Quality?
While there are many things you can do to improve your air quality, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. The most effective way to improve your air quality is to have a professional come out and assess your home. They will be able to help you identify the sources of air pollution in your home and create a customized solution to improve your indoor air quality.
Some of the most effective ways to improve your air quality include:
- Using high-quality filters on your HVAC system
- Installing an air purifier
- Using a dehumidifier
- Installing a whole-home air filter
- Installing an indoor air quality monitor

Do I really need to schedule AC maintenance?
Regular air conditioning system maintenance may seem unnecessary, but the fact is that routine inspections and service are vital for the efficiency, health, and performance of your AC system. Regular AC maintenance allows your HVAC technician to find minor issues and repair them before they become bigger problems. It also helps boost your system’s efficiency, meaning you’ll enjoy a cooler, more comfortable home and lower energy bills. Routine AC service can even increase the lifespan of your unit by addressing wear and tear, meaning your system will last longer and work better.
We recommend scheduling routine AC maintenance at least once a year, ideally in the spring before the hottest months of the year.
How often should I change the air filters in my AC system?
A clogged air filter leads to reduced cooling efficiency and a hotter, less comfortable home. To ensure maximum energy efficiency and cooling power, you should clean or replace your AC’s air filters every 30 to 90 days. The make, model, and age of your system will determine how often to replace the filters, but we recommend waiting no more than 45 days.
Why won’t my air conditioner turn on?There are many reasons why your AC won’t turn on. It could be an issue with the thermostat, a clogged air filter, or a mechanical issue. Check the thermostat to make sure it’s set to cool; you should also make sure the batteries are working. Locate the air filter and see whether it appears dirty. If so, it’s time to clean or replace it. Our team can come out to your home to diagnose the problem and complete fast, effective repairs. We’ll explain what’s wrong with your AC and inform you of your options before beginning any work.
