We’re Sharing 3 Hauntingly Good Tips!
Are you on the “haunt” for a healthier home? Timo’s is here to help!
While you may know us as the go-to company for dependable HVAC system installations and speedy, reliable AC and heating repairs in Palm Springs, CA, our team is capable of so much more. In fact, we’re also the area’s answer to fresher, cleaner and healthier indoor air.
Our IAQ specialists want you to be aware of the frightening truth behind the air inside of your home. The bone-chilling reality is: Your home isn’t as safe as you think it is. In fact, your indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air and can cause or aggravate 50% of all illnesses!
Want more scary facts? There are also hundreds of contaminants circulating through your home’s air and ventilation system. These include allergens, bacteria, chemicals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pet dander, dust and other particulates. Yuck!
So, what’s a homeowner to do? Easy! Call Timo’s to help calm your fears and scare away indoor pollutants and other monsters.
Here are three places to start:
1. Replace Your Air Filters
A dirty or clogged filter makes it harder for your system to maintain your desired temperature. This extra effort puts unnecessary strain on your unit, which results in high energy bills, frequent problems or worse—a premature system replacement. Your best bet? Change those filters often!
Here’s our pros recommendation: Change or clean your air conditioner’s filter at least every three months. If you’re a pet owner or suffer from allergies and asthma, we recommend changing your filter more frequently, preferably every two months.
2. Clean Your Air Ducts
Beware of dirty air ducts! Your air ducts circulate air from your heating and cooling system to every nook and cranny of your home. Unfortunately, there are allergens and pathogens lurking inside your ducts, just waiting for conditioned air to pass through so they can hitch a ride and wreak havoc on your indoor air quality. As a result, you’re left breathing air that’s terrifyingly polluted and bad for your health.
At Timo’s, we perform thorough air duct cleaning that will send your dirty duct worries to their final resting place. Here are some hair-raising signs your ducts are overdue for a thorough cleaning:
- Your ductwork is making eerie noises.
- Your system’s vents and registers are haunted by dirt or dust.
- You’ve unmasked signs of rodents living in your ductwork.
- There’s visible mold growth lurking near your ducts.
- You’ve noticed a horrifying change in your energy bills recently.
3. Install an IAQ System
At Timo’s, we offer a wide selection of IAQ solutions, including the powerful Air Scrubber by Aerus. This air and surface purification system removes harmful airborne contaminants and disinfects any surface your indoor air touches, including counters, doorknobs, tables and more!
