Did you know the air inside your home or business can be making you sick? Indoor air pollution is now considered to be one of the top five environmental health risks in the nation. Poor indoor air quality can be much more than irritating. It can lead to the development of infections or even serious disease.
At Summers™ Plumbing Heating & Cooling (Avon), our knowledgeable technicians are aware of the hidden hazards associated with indoor air pollution. Our highly skilled home and business air quality professionals can evaluate your needs and provide safe and cost-effective options to help you breathe easier. For more than 40 years, we have been offering effective solutions to our customers to achieve comfort in their home.
Homeowners may be unaware of how poor indoor air quality can affect them. Some people may become ill regularly. Others may develop infections or allergic reactions, particularly in vulnerable populations such as children, the elderly, and people with asthma or a weakened immune system. Other indicators of poor air quality in a home include the following:
Many of the symptoms listed above can be attributed to other causes, such as a common cold. However, if these symptoms persist for more than a few weeks, they are most likely caused by poor indoor air quality. Homeowners should contact Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling as soon as possible to take the next steps toward improving their home’s indoor air quality.
Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling provides various solutions to help improve the indoor air quality of a home. While each element is effective on its own, combining two or more of the practices listed below can ensure that pollutants are effectively removed from the home. Summers Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling provide the following services for their customers.
Maintaining the home’s air ducts regularly can significantly positively impact the home’s indoor air quality levels. Over time, the air ducts in a home accumulate dust and other debris, especially in the spring and fall when the air conditioning unit and furnace are most active. The dust must exist somewhere, so it is distributed throughout the home, where the dust is inhaled by the home’s occupants or returned to the HVAC system via ventilation.
Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling’s HVAC technicians will thoroughly clean the air ducts while inspecting for leaks. More debris particles can enter the airflow as a result of leaks. Dryer vents, which are notorious for collecting large amounts of lint, dander, and other particles, will also be serviced by expert technicians.
When the air in a home becomes too humid, it can promote the growth of mold and mildew. If the air becomes too dry, it can cause skin irritation as well as eye, nose, and throat irritation. Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling provides whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers to help you manage the humidity levels in the home. The equipment can be installed directly into the HVAC system and controlled by the home’s thermostat, assisting in maintaining healthy humidity levels throughout the year.
Scheduled cleaning or replacement of the HVAC system’s air filters is perhaps the simplest way to improve the air quality in the home, but it is frequently the most overlooked solution. Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling’s HVAC technicians will inspect all air filters and ensure they are thoroughly cleaned or replaced.
