Your Home Air Quality Matters

Published: March 27, 2020

The air you breathe inside your home has a huge impact on your well being. Air quality matters. For example, did you know pollutants can be two to five times more concentrated indoors than outdoors? Health issues caused by poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) could be immediate or long term depending on the type and concentration of pollutants. During these uncertain times surrounding COVID-19, different solutions offered by Tiger, your local HVAC company, can help you feel at ease with your home’s air quality.

Air Cleaners and Purifiers

You can clean the air throughout your house or you can deal with it room by room. Whole house air cleaners are placed in the return duct to your furnace. The air first passes through the purifier’s filters to remove allergens and pollutants before entering the furnace. Then it gets distributed throughout your home via ductwork.

Alternatively, you can opt for a purifier that takes care of only one room. These units clean more air in that space but the obvious disadvantage is that the rest of the house won’t benefit. Whichever option you choose, remember to regularly change your filter!

UV light

UV light is used in air purifiers to kill bacteria and mold spores helping to reduce allergens in the home. Surface-cleaning UV-C systems provide your home with 24/7 irradiation of HVACR components. This can destroy bacteria, viruses, and mold that may settle and proliferate on your coils, air filters, ducts, and drain pans. UV light has been shown to help prevent the growth and spread of pathogens that could eventually become airborne and circulate throughout your home through your HVAC system.

Duct Cleaning

Studies show that in a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust can be created each year just through everyday living! This dust can settle and accumulate in your systems ductwork affecting the air quality in your home. If you notice lots of dust starting to accumulate on your furniture, it is probably time to clean your air ducts.

Ventilation

Depending on the weather, you can use natural ventilation to introduce clean air into your home. Open the windows and doors on opposite sides of your home to allow outdoor air to flow through. Mechanical options such as exhaust fans and ventilators are also options that give you measured flow rates so you know you’re getting the right amount of air. Be careful if you have allergies to pollen and dust as this can introduce more allergens into your home.

"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
