What’s the Big Deal with Indoor Air Quality?

Hey there, homeowner! Your homes should be safe havens for your family’s health, safety and well-being. But you might be surprised to find out that the air you’re breathing inside your own home could be making you sick. Let’s talk about why your home’s air quality is something you should take seriously and what you can do about it.

Schedule your Indoor Air Quality analysis with Western Heating, Air & Plumbing by calling (801) 218-2187 or contacting us online. After all, you have a partner in Western.

What’s the Big Deal with Indoor Air Quality?

First, did you know that over half of all single-family homes have someone living there who struggles with respiratory issues? And who’s at the most risk? Kids, older folks, and anyone with chronic breathing problems. In fact, kids breathe in 50% more air for their size compared to adults, making them extra vulnerable.

Sure, we’ve all gotten into the groove of energy-efficient living, but the downside is that these airtight spaces are not always the best for our lungs. Your cozy carpets, cushy sofas, and even your cleaning supplies could release nasties into the air you breathe.

So, How Bad Could It Get?

Think of headaches, sore throat, fatigue, and even trouble focusing. Long-term? We’re talking about worsening asthma and allergies. Not fun.

Here’s How We Can Help

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a few solid options:

  • Upgraded Filtration – Your basic 1″ filter isn’t cutting it. Upgrade to a 13+ MERV-rated filter to trap up to 85% of airborne particles.
  • Bi-Polar Ionization – Think of it as an air purifier on steroids. This tech uses ions to latch onto particles, making them big enough to be caught in your regular filter while killing off germs and allergens.
  • Western Signature Series PCO Air Purifier – It’s a mouthful, but it’s also a game-changer. This uses UV light and fancy science to neutralize pathogens like bacteria and viruses.
  • Electronic Air Cleaners (EAC) – These gadgets use electrically charged filters to grab hold of both big and small particles, stopping them from a free ride around your home.

What Can You Do Right Now?

Even small changes can make a significant impact. Here are some quick tips:

  • Swap out your air filters regularly.
  • Opt for less toxic cleaning products.
  • Seal or toss out any open chemicals or paint.
  • Use exhaust fans when cooking or showering.
  • Get your HVAC system checked for leaks and other issues that could up the humidity and invite nasty growths.
  • Consider bringing in some houseplants. They’re not just pretty; they’re little air-purifying machines.
