Indoor air pollution can actually be worse for you than outdoor pollution! People spend the majority of their lives inside their homes and buildings, so clean indoor air with low levels of dust, particulates and contaminants and the right level of humidity is more important for day-to-day health and comfort. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can play a major role in your level of health and quality of life. The world has become more environmentally concerned, and as a result, houses have become “tighter” (allowing less air to leak out). But, the more airtight your home is, the less fresh air you are getting, and the more pollutants are building up and being re-circulated in the air you breathe.
Contact us today to talk to one of our Comfort Consultants about ways to improve the air quality inside your home.

Carbon Monoxide Detection
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas that is produced when any fuel such as natural gas, oil, charcoal, or wood is burned. If you use any gas-burning appliances in your home (furnace, water heater, stove, fireplace), burn wood in a stove or fireplace, smoke tobacco products, or even if you have an attached garage, carbon monoxide is being produced inside your walls. With proper use and venting, the CO given off by these things is no cause for concern. However, with improper use, broken equipment, cracked venting, dirty/clogged chimney, etc., CO can seep into your living space, leading to health problems or even death.
Carbon Monoxide Education
Most people generally want to avoid health problems and death, so if you’re one of those people, it is important to educate yourself on how to prevent any problems with CO in your home. The EPA has some good information here and there to get you started.
Carbon Monoxide Testing & Alarms
If you’d like some help, give us a call. Our qualified technicians can analyze any sources of CO you may have and make sure that they are properly vented. They can also show you our Carrier Carbon Monoxide Alarm, which should be an important part of your prevention plan. This alarm just plugs into any power outlet in your home and has a battery backup in case you lose power.
Don’t become a statistic – learn how to prevent a build-up of CO in your home and keep your family safe!
