As a trusted plumbing and HVAC business in the Twin Cities area since 1918, our team understands the importance of keeping your home safe and comfortable. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), most people spend 80 to 90 percent of their time indoors. With increased pollution sources impacting your home, it’s important to take precautions in improving your indoor air quality.
During the chilly Minneapolis winters, it can be difficult to let fresh air from outside circulate throughout your home while still remaining comfortable. So what can you do to ensure the air you’re breathing isn’t harmful?
Here are three ways Minneapolis Saint Paul Plumbing, Heating & Air can help improve your home’s indoor air quality:
1.Duct cleaning: Not only can duct cleaning improve your heating and air conditioning system, but it also improves air quality. Having a professional clean your ducts removes contaminants and irritants, resulting in a healthier and safer indoor environment. Our technicians use a HEPA “Hospital Grade” Vacuum Collection System to provide your family with top-of-the-line cleaning results.
2.Air filters and purifiers: Installing an air filter or purifier can reduce the need for dusting, while collecting and eliminating allergens. A HEPA air filter can remove 99.7% of all pollutants throughout your house. Not all filters are created equal, however, and our professionals can assist in choosing which one best suits your home’s needs.
3.Whole home humidifiers: As the name suggests, a whole home humidifier works with your entire house rather than just individual rooms. Protecting your whole house will help to reduce allergy symptoms and harsh impacts from dry air such as rough skin, itchy eyes, and nose bleeds.
Repeated exposure to poor indoor air quality can have severe impacts on your health, including skin irritations and respiratory issues. Minneapolis Saint Paul Plumbing, Heating & Air can help make sure your home is comfortable, safe, and healthy for your family. Contact us today to schedule a home air quality analysis.
