How many times do you hear this in your home: “Ahchoo!” Followed by, “Bless you.” All the time? Several times a day? Too many times to count? Then you need to call our Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) experts at Sanborn’s Air Conditioning & Heating today.
Seasonal allergies are often made much worse by poor IAQ caused by insufficient air circulation. It is the first key to keeping your air healthy. Circulation allows fresh air into the house to help move germs and other contaminants out.
You can’t depend on just your heating and cooling systems to do the job. In fact, properly installed ventilation can make a home easier to cool, decreasing the workload on your HVAC systems. We at Sanborn’s don’t have to tell you how important that is during our long, hot summers in San Bernardino, Highland and Riverside counties.
A great option is a whole-house fan. We recommend the Quiet Cool brand. It is the best solution to augment your air conditioning system. When evening temperatures drop, the whole-house fan pulls in the cooler outside air while pushing the hot air out through vents in the attic.
An added advantage is that proper attic ventilation can also save you money by extending the life of your attic and roof structure. Here are just a few of the other products we offer to improve air circulation in your home:
- Foundation vents
- Attic exhaust vents
- Attic intake vents
- Power vents
- Static vents
Studies show most Americans spend 90% of their time indoors and mostly at home. Poor indoor air quality ranks as one of the top 10 issues affecting overall health. Some of the symptoms are headache, fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness and nausea.
So, after we improve the air circulation in your house, then we can talk with you about products to make the air healthier. We offer air scrubbers and air filters including the Trane CleanEffects™ whole-house air filtration system. We are also pleased to recommend the Goodman filtration system as well.
Another choice is the Ultraviolet Light Purification system from Honeywell. It can break down viruses, bacteria, mold, and mildew. The air in your home is treated with the ultraviolet light as it circulates through your HVAC system.
So remember, you shouldn’t have to put up with sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes inside your own home. Instead, call Sanborn’s and our professionals will show you how we can improve your IAQ and at the same time take care of all your service, repair, and maintenance needs.
