Your indoor air quality is as important as the temperature of your home or business. Asthma and allergies can be greatly affected by air pollution, and your HVAC system might be the culprit causing you breathing problems.
If your home frequently has odd smells, or you need to re-clean surfaces like tables or countertops, you might have poor air quality.
Stateline Mechanical can come out and test your air. Sometimes something as simple as replacing filters monthly (or as suggested by the manufacturer) and getting your ducts clean (very affordable and typically finished in just a few hours) can make a tremendous difference in improving the quality of the air in your home.
Don’t let dirty ducts get you down! Kid’s toys, pet hair and dander, even your own dead skin cells can end up clogging up your air ducts – or worse, they can be continually cycled through your home or office.
Duct cleaning is a simple, affordable process, that can greatly improve you air quality! Most HVAC manufacturers recommend you have your ducts cleaned at least every 5 years. If you’ve let it slip past that, don’t worry. Stateline Mechanical can clean your ducts, replace air filters, and tune up your indoor air humidifier system, in one quick maintenance session.
Humidifiers can dramatically improve the air quality for people suffering form asthma or who have chronic dry skin during winter time. Don’t let your furnace leave you dried out!
If you find your home feeling dry, or have noticed the woodwork in your home starting to dry out – and those expensive wood floors are now separating, it might be a good time to look into a whole house humidifier.
In Northern Illinois, most homeowners are using their HVAC systems at least 6 months out of the year. With that much intense use most HVAC manufacturers recommend filters be changed every 3 months – but filters should be checked monthly and replaced as soon as needed.
Be wary of bargain prices when shopping for duct cleaning services! Cheap work typically means the job isn’t done right. For most homes you can expect to pay between $400 and $800. The difference in air quality in your home or business is definitely worth the cost.
Proper inspections of your HVAC system, replacing filters, cleaning ducts, and if needed installing air humidifiers are the biggest things you can do to improve the quality of your air. Outside of the HVAC system, indoor plants in each room can greatly improve the air quality – plus they are a great low cost way to decorate.
