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
- Weakness or fatigue
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.
