Indoor Air Quality
If someone has trouble breathing in your Utah home because of poor [indoor-air quality] (IAQ), little else matters.
Most people spend the vast majority of their day indoors. But in some cases, the concentration of indoor pollutants is higher than outdoor levels. Our mountainous topography and cold winter inversions here in Utah tend to trap smog, making it a challenge for any home or business to maintain its indoor air quality.
Add in our constant low-humidity levels, and you can see why we need to take steps to protect our air! Poor indoor quality can exacerbate allergies and asthma attacks—prolonged exposure can lead to chronic respiratory issues. The very air you breathe could be hazardous to your health.
At Gillette Heating and Air, we offer practical solutions on how to help you get the most from your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. We’re a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer with years of experience and expertise. We’re the only HVAC company in the entire state of Utah to win the Carrier President’s Award three years in a row!
As a family-owned business, we have deep roots in our community. To all of our customers in Spanish Fork and the surrounding areas, we promise to do our best to ensure your comfort and well-being—especially when it involves the air you breathe.
How Do I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are three basic strategies to improve your indoor air quality:
- Source Control
Fuel-burning appliances, tobacco products, household cleaning products—any sources that release gases or particles will create indoor air quality problems.
- Improved Ventilation
Open the windows and doors when the weather permits to invite fresh air into your Spanish Fork home. Install exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathrooms. Take extra steps to increase ventilation if you are cleaning, cooking, painting—or doing similar activities.
- Air Cleaners
You can choose between portable models and whole-house air cleaners. The quality of the air cleaner depends on how well it captures pollutants and the amount of air it draws through the filtering element.
Our goal at Gillette Heating and Air is to help you combine these strategies to create a healthy home. Give us a call to schedule a free consultation so that one of our specialists can find ways to improve your air quality.
