How Important Is the Air You Breathe At Home??

According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, breathing air that is 5 times more polluted than the air outside. Signs that the air quality in your home is poor range from headaches, to insomnia or fatigue, to respiratory issues. Other signs can include high energy bills and excessive dust. Prolonged exposure to poor indoor air quality can lead to respiratory diseases, heart disease, and even cancer. https://www.epa.gov/indoor-air-quality-iaq

How can you improve your air quality at home? You can reduce dust by vacuuming regularly and using a damp cloth when dusting furniture. Change your HVAC filter regularly. Use the fan on your stove when you are cooking. Get your air ducts cleaned regularly. Already do these things and still think you have poor indoor air quality? You are probably correct. There are over 900 harmful chemicals and organisms that you cannot even see.


Opening your windows for just 15 minutes can help improve your indoor air quality, when weather permits, and if you don't suffer from allergies, can also help with some of these issues. This isn't always a feasible option and is only comfortable to do a few months a year.

Allergies always a problem? Have to dust every single day? We can put in a media filtration system that can help reduce the allergens and dust in your home.


The same dust and dirt that you have to sweep/ mop/ dust to keep out of your home- is collecting and building up in your duct system which moves all the air throughout your home. Most people don't think of the duct system when maintaining their HVAC system, when it is an integral part of the system and needs maintenance as well. The NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) recommends having a professional duct cleaning every 3-5 years. https://www.angi.com/articles/how-often-should-you-clean-your-air-ducts.htm





Dr. P's HVAC can also install a whole house air purifier directly into your HVAC system. The REME Halo Zero is proven to reduce bacteria, viruses, odor, mold, allergens, and dust throughout your entire air conditioned space. It works continuously, but quietly and is verified ZERO ozone. It also comes with a limited 5 year warranty and maintenance is minimal.
