Don’t Let Bad Air Crash Your Holiday Season

This winter, families will spend more time snuggled into their homes. You’re probably aware of harmful pollution outside – but did you know that your indoor air has the potential to be even more dangerous?
Indoor air pollution is one of the top five public health hazards.
90% of your time – and your family’s – is spent indoors. Dust mites, molds, mildew, viruses and allergens increase the likelihood or irritate certain health conditions. For children and the elderly, this is especially dangerous.  
Irritated eyes, nose and throat are some of the first indicators of poor indoor air quality. Dust or dirt around heating or air vents, on ceilings or stained walls should alert you that there is a problem.
Do what you can to reduce indoor pollutants – no indoor smoking, use air-friendly cleaning supplies and keep pets groomed. Invest in high quality filters for your home comfort system. Also, get an indoor air survey. We can do it or we can recommend someone to you.

Are Signs of Rust a Problem?

When everything’s working well, how do you know when something’s about to go wrong? Your furnace may not tell you unless you know where to look.
Rust could be normal signs of an aging system – or perhaps something much worse than the effects of condensation. If the heat exchanger is rusty, that’s a sign of a problem. If the heat exchanger has leaks or cracks, it could allow carbon monoxide to leak into the home.
A professional contractor, like us, can take a look and make the assessment.

Is Your Insulation Insulating?

During this cold winter, testing your insulation can be time well spent.
  1. Place a thermometer in the middle of the room.
  2. Tape another to an exterior wall.
  3. If there is more than a 5 degree temperature difference between the two, your home could need more insulation.
  4. If the variance is less than 5 degrees, eliminate air leaks with caulk and weather stripping.
If you have rooms that stay uncomfortably cool, then you may need a professional inspection and repairs. Give us a call if we can help.
