Improving Your Indoor Air Quality in Winter

October 3rd, 2022

woman-huddled-in-blanket-drinking-out-of-mugYou want to have great indoor air quality all year long. It’s important to know that your indoor air quality during the winter has its own challenges that are different from the warmer months. When it’s cold outside, you tend to keep your home closed up for longer to prevent the cool air from getting in. This means that you have less ventilation and opportunity for fresh air to get in.

Contaminants like bacteria, mold, and viruses can fester and spread through your home, recirculating each day. The air in your home can also get dry and feel even colder with less humidity in the air. If you’re concerned with your home’s air filtration in Tacoma, WA, our team can help. Learn more about improving your indoor air quality in the winter, and then give us a call to help you reach your indoor air quality goals.

Why You Should Choose a Whole-House Air Purifier

September 5th, 2022

hands-changing-air-filterWhen you’re outdoors, you don’t know what you’re breathing in. Pollen, mold spores, and other contaminants are everywhere. Of course, outside there are trees oxygenating the air, but those trees can’t filter out harmful contaminants. Your air conditioner works similarly inside. It cools your air and filters out larger particles of dust and dirt. But that same pollen and mold that is outside may also be inside your home cycling through your AC system. 

Your AC unit can’t filter out such small contaminants. But that doesn’t mean you have to be left breathing in air that could make you sick or aggravate your allergies. Our team installs whole-home air purifiers in Puyallup, WA. But how do you know if you need a whole-house air purifier?
