Indoor Air Quality

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

The EPA ranks indoor air pollution the fourth largest environmental threat to our country. And, according to a study by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, indoor air contaminants are responsible for half of all illnesses.

In approximately 500 indoor air quality investigations in the last decade, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found that the largest source of indoor air quality problems, at 52%, is inadequate ventilation.

Heating and cooling issues, mold, secondhand smoke, volatile organic compounds (VOCs are often found in paints and common cleansers), viruses, pollen, animal dander, water leaks, and particles from dust mites and cockroaches, can cause indoor air quality problems and trigger health concerns. Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections, lung cancer, and asthma. It can also cause headaches; eye, nose, throat, and respiratory irritation, coughing, difficulty concentrating, sensitivity to odors, muscle pain, and fatigue.

The American Lung Association recommends source control as the first line of defense against indoor air pollution. Appropriate ventilation with clean, fresh air can also reduce levels of indoor air pollutants. Newer, more energy-efficient homes don’t always breathe properly and are sometimes more polluted than older homes, so there are different concerns to consider depending on the age of your home.

A clean HVAC system is crucial to your family’s health and air quality. John’s Refrigeration Heating and Cooling tests your home and the duct system to identify areas where the contaminants are getting in and will recommend actions you can take to keep the air inside your house as safe as possible.

We can determine how clean or dirty the air inside your home is and offer suggestions on how to improve its quality. We can install an electrostatic air filter, an Advanced Oxidation Air Purifier, or either aHumidification or De-humidification System. You will breathe easier once John’s identifies the air quality problems inside your home and resolves them.

Pollen and your HVAC system

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Many people move to the Phoenix metro area from other parts of the United States thinking their allergy problems will go away. But Arizona’s desert dust creeps into every nook and cranny of our homes, though there are many things we can do to prevent this pollution intrusion.

Poor indoor air quality is a major pathway for pollen and many other airborne pollutants. A poorly maintained a/c unit and compromised ducts can be prime real estate for germs. Inefficient filters can be home to many types of bacteria and viruses. Air coming through leaky doors and windows circulates dust, pollen, gasses, and odors through your home. And while some bacteria will cause odors, others won’t, so don’t count on a tell-tale scent to know if your system is housing mold and other pollutants.

Pollen is by far the most difficult allergen to avoid. All types of plants generally favor warm, sunny days for releasing pollen, and they prefer the kind of dry air typical of Arizona. Although these pollen grains are tiny, compared to other allergenic particles, they are big and heavy. This makes them easier to trap in an efficient filtering system.

Between proper air balancing, duct sealing, and using the correct filter, you can prevent pollen and other allergens from getting in your house, significantly reducing allergies and asthma symptoms.

John’s Refrigeration Heating and Cooling offers several solutions to your filtering problems. Our Advanced Oxidation Air Purifierwill reduce 97% of airborne bacterial and 97% of the airborne mold in your home.

Our Electrostatic Air Filtersare more than 84% plus efficient, versus 15% efficiency for the disposable filters commonly used. These reusable filters are also backed by a lifetime warranty.

John’s can improve the air quality in your home because we take a holistic, whole house approach and understand how your home, duct system, and A/C system work together.

Monsoon Season in Arizona

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Arizona’s official monsoon is June 15th through September 30th. These storms range from minor dust storms to intense thunderstorms. The monsoon usually starts with heavy winds, which can turn into a wall of dust hundreds of feet high moving across the Valley. These dust storms, called haboobs, are often accompanied by thunder and lightning and sometimes lead to heavy downpours. It’s the only season during which Arizonans don’t use the phrase “it’s a dry heat”.

The Arizona Division of Public Health Services describes AZ heat as “more than a nuisance – it is lethal.” And the severity of annual monsoons affects our roadways – including driving visibility and flash flooding – as well as air quality. A 10,000 foot-tall wall of dust, 30 or more miles wide can do a lot of damage, especially to a home’s HVAC system.

Since a home’s air conditioning system filters the outside air, the dust storms that are part and parcel of a monsoon can strain your unit, making it work harder and less efficiently. Because the a/c unit may run longer than normal due to the higher humidity, homeowners may need to lower the thermostat setting in order to keep comfortable. 77 degrees in a 50% humid home does not feel good. Cleaning the unit’s condensate drain will also help keep your HVAC system clean and clear out any debris, which makes the unit more efficient.

Because the electricity often goes out during the monsoon, it’s best to turn your air conditioning unit off so there’s not a huge power draw when the electricity comes back on. In fact, investing in surge protection is also a wise move, considering you’re a/c is the biggest power draw in your home.

Although you should call John’s Refrigeration Heating and Cooling if you have issues with your a/c unit during the monsoon, after all the dust has settled, make an appointment with us and our certified technicians will check your home’s HVAC, including duct work and air quality, to ensure your family is breathing fresh air. After all, we are your indoor comfort specialists.
