How to get rid of dust

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Every home carries dust, but how much dust lives in your home depends on a number of factors, such as the climate you live in, if you have pets, smoke cigarettes, or even cook certain types of foods. In addition to being a sight for sore eyes and often a trigger for allergy sufferers, dust can contain toxic chemicals.

Living in Arizona, we're no strangers to dust and it's not just something that affects air quality during monsoon. During winter in the Phoenix metro area, a layer of cooler air becomes trapped by a layer of warmer air just above it, forming what's called an inversion. An inversion traps pollutants from all kinds of sources and this increases the chances of carbon monoxide. That is why it's necessary to take care of the system that circulates the air in your house on a regular basis to prevent these toxins from getting into your home.

Here's our list of effectively and safely:

  • Fit your air conditioning system with high quality filters and change them frequently to make sure they're doing their job. At John's Refrigeration our air cleaner installation experts can work with you to make sure that the air quality in your home is safe. We also take care to ensure the new filter in your home doesn't impede the balance of air pressure in your home or reduce the efficiency of your system.
  • Caulk cracks and crevices to prevent dust from getting into those hard to reach areas.
  • Vacuum frequently, using one with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter. If you are prone to allergies or suffer from asthma, you may want to consider investing in a vacuum that has high suction and high dust removal capability. Make sure to clean out and replace the filter regularly.
  • Clean with microfiber cloths; their smaller fibers cling to the dust particles. Avoid synthetic sprayers and wipes, as they only add unwanted chemicals to the air.
  • Mop uncarpeted floors regularly with water and the manufacturer's recommended cleaning products.

If your home has an excessive amount of dust and you're worried about the toxins your family is breathing in, call John's today to schedule a peak performance home evaluation. We will be able to look at not only your air conditioning and heating system, but also the way you live in your home and then offer recommendations to keep the air in your home dust free and clean.

What's That Brown Cloud on the Horizon? How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

Living in the desert, Arizona homes can experience higher levels of dust and other contaminants than homes in other climates. As a result, it's important to consider your home's indoor air quality and learn what you can do to ensure a healthy environment for your family.

Those who suffer from allergies can be especially susceptible to issues from poor air quality in the home. Other signs your home may have poor indoor air quality include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Nausea

Many symptoms resulting from issues with indoor air quality appear similar to the flu and often go undiagnosed.

To help improve your indoor air quality, start by contacting John's Refrigeration to learn about our air quality services. There are a number of simple steps to take to help insure healthier indoor air quality:

  • Check the duct system: Air contaminants like dust, pollen, and other environmental toxins can get into your home and circulate through dirty, leaky ducts. Getting ducts cleaned, checked for leaks, and repaired is a valuable first step for protecting the air you breathe.
  • Install an air filter: After checking and sealing the duct system, John's can install our Fresh Air Filter System that will help continue to keep the home ventilated with clean air. Air filters catch pollutants before they enter the indoor air.
  • Beware of carbon monoxide: Carbon Monoxide is an odorless but poisonous gas that can come from your heater, furnace, fireplace, or other gas appliances and tools. Undetected, it can cause a number of health issues and can be fatal. When we conduct a heating repair service, we check for things like cracks in the heater, where carbon monoxide can leak.
  • Add a humidifier: Our dry climate leaves the indoor air lacking moisture, causing skin issues, potential respiratory problems, and increased dust. Adding a humidifier to the system can help alleviate these issues and allow homeowners to manage the humidity levels in the home.

To schedule an inspection to check on the quality of your indoor air, contact John's Refrigeration at (480) 718-1172.

3 Types of Air Filtration Systems

Monday, August 10th, 2015

Mesa, AZ gets super-hot in the summertime, and most of us rightfully focus on our air conditioners to keep our homes comfortable. But frankly speaking, indoor air quality can be as much of a problem: anything from low humidity to the presence of germs and bacteria can lower the quality of your air and subsequently the quality of your life. You can fight it by installing an air filtration system in your home, which can address specific issues or a variety of them to help make the air fresher and healthier. But which one is right for you? You can answer that question with help from a professional technician, but here are 3 different types of air filtration systems to give you an idea of your options.

Mold vs. Dust Allergies in Phoenix

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

When was the last time you sneezed or had a sinus headache? If you're in Phoenix, you may be suffering from mold or dust allergies. Desert air is dry most of the year and when it's more humid, like during monsoon, it is the perfect environment for mold to grow.

Dust Allergies in Phoenix

Have you been outside or driving in a dust storm? You can feel the grit on your teeth and in your hair. That's dust and if you're sneezing, you may have a dust allergy; one of the most common allergies. Even if you're not in a dust storm, you may notice your throat is scratchy on windy days or you're sneezing at certain times of the year. It's probably when there are higher counts of pollutants, including dust, in the air.

Stop Dust in Your Home

To prevent dust from entering your home, we recommend removing shoes at the door. If you work outdoors or in a dusty environment, we also recommend taking your clothes off and washing them as soon as you get home. This will keep dust, pollen, and other contaminants from entering the air of your home.

Mold Allergies in Phoenix

When you think of Phoenix, mold allergies may not be top of mind, but it's a common allergy. Mold grows in dark, humid environments indoors and outdoors. Most commonly found indoors in bathrooms or basements, mold sheds tiny spores and it's these spores that trigger allergic reactions.

Mold allergy symptoms include coughing, wheezing, rash, runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, and redness of the eyes. While allergy medications can help fight these symptoms, getting rid of the source – the mold – is key to feeling better. Controlling the humidity in the home using a whole home humidifier will also prevent mold and mildew from growing.

If you're concerned or curious about the indoor air quality of your home, Just Call John's at 480-718-1172 to schedule an appointment.

John's Refrigeration Rave Review: Dust Allergy Solution

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Dust Allergy Solution

Are you experiencing allergies or feel like your home's air isn't as clean as it could be? It's time to Just Call John's! Your home is a living being; inhaling and exhaling just like you do. When the ducts aren't properly sized and sealed, the system has to work harder to heat and cool your home. It's as if the home itself is having an asthma attack. The result is more dust and contaminants inside (instead of staying outside) and a temperature differential of more than a degree or two.

Our customer Joyce called us after hearing a rave review about John's Refrigeration from her neighbor. She needed help with the amount of dust in her home and temperature differentials as much as five degrees on the east and west sides of her home. She has pets, but thought dusting once a day was excessive. And she was right.

We inspected the duct system and found the intake wasn't sized properly and there were leaks. This meant dust was entering the home, along with air from the system, and airflow was inconsistent throughout the home. This created a need to clean the home frequently and be frustrated by varying temperatures within the home.

Solution and Results

We added a return, made a larger duct to the existing return, and sealed registers in an effort to keep dust, pollen, and other contaminants outside and the system running efficiently.

Joyce immediately noticed the quietness of the A/C when it was running. Over time, she also noticed less dust and has gone from dusting once a day to only twice a month! With just a few simple changes, we created more air flow, increased comfort, decreased the amount of dust, and make the system more efficient by properly sizing and sealing the ductwork.

How does a dust storm affect my air conditioning?

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

The official monsoon season started in Arizona on June 15th and lasts through September. Often, along with rain, comes a dust storm; the worst of which is referred to as a haboob. In addition to causingallergies that drain your health, these storms can take a drain on your air conditioning unit.

How does a dust storm affect my air conditioning?

Much like our bodies, an air conditioner runs slower when there is dust and debris in the air. When the air is heavier, we get more tired doing our everyday tasks. We feel sluggish and need to exert more to accomplish the same activity. It's the same for your air conditioning.

A typical monsoon storm begins with heavy winds, bringing dust across the Valley and into your home. Dirt enters the air conditioning unit, making the coil dirty, which reduces the unit's performance. That means the unit is working harder and using more electricity to bring your home to the desired cool temperature. As a result, you will have a higher utility bill or may need additional maintenance to keep the unit clear of dust and debris.

How can I keep my air conditioning unit healthy during a dust storm?

Improving indoor air quality isn't just for monsoon; it needs to happen throughout the year. At John's Refrigeration we can:

  • Identify areas of the HVAC system where there are leaks that are allowing dust, pollen, and other contaminants into the home.
  • Install an electrostatic air filter that attracts and holds airborne particles so they do not enter your home or your lungs.
  • Clear the air conditioning unit of debris to help it work more efficiently.

The team at John's Refrigeration is dedicated to helping families feel comfortable in their homes, during dust storm season and throughout the year. Call us today to learn how we can help keep your air conditioning running efficiently.
