We are taking the following precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. All of our technicians have masks, glasses, latex gloves and shoe booties if they have to enter your home. Our technicians also have hand sanitizer and disinfectants that they use after every call.
If we are there to do maintenance and we don’t have to come inside your home to get to the equipment, we are asking homeowners to adjust the thermostat for us so we can do the system maintenance without entering the home. We will not be shaking hands and will keep our distance from customers.
The indoor air quality team at Paschal Air, Plumbing & Electric is ready to help you improve your health through cleaner indoor air. While a well constructed, airtight home is energy efficient, it can also create an environment of unhealthy indoor air. Paschal offers several solutions to improve the air quality of your Northwest Arkansas, Fort Smith or Southwest Missouri area home or business. Our licensed technicians have undergone rigorous training, and continue to stay current regarding technological advances that help to improve your indoor air quality.
Types of Indoor Air Pollution
The Environmental Protection Agency (or EPA) lists indoor air as one of the top 5 pollutants and environmental dangers in the country. According to the EPA, indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than the air outside. Hundreds, even thousands of chemicals and microbes are released into your indoor air system every single day.
Some of the most common indoor air pollutants include pollen, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, virus, mold, and fungi. When these pollutants contaminate the air, they can aggravate your allergies or asthma, cause dry throats and itchy skin, and leave you vulnerable to colds and viruses.
To combat these pollutants, Paschal offers a variety of indoor air quality solutions, such as comprehensive duct cleaning services, and revolutionary in-duct sealing technology. Our team of indoor air quality experts at Paschal are committed to helping you live a life of clean air.
How Can I Improve Indoor Air Quality?
There are four basic categories of indoor air quality systems – whole house filtration systems, humidifiers and dehumidifiers, energy recovery ventilators (ERV), and ultraviolet air cleaners. Whole house filtration systems are installed within your ductwork of your system, so that air is filtered before it enters your home.
Meanwhile, humidifiers and dehumidifiers help control the humidity levels of your homes; unhealthy levels cause odors and make your air a breeding ground for mold and fungi.
ERVs allow fresh air to circulate without losing your heating and cooling energy, while ultraviolet air cleaners cleanse the air in your ducts so that bacteria and mold are unable to grow.
Through normal occupation & living conditions in a home, we are constantly generating contaminants and air pollutants, such as dead skin, dust, germs, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system through cracks, holes and seams in your duct work and re-circulated many times over each and every day.
Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of these contaminants within the air duct system. It can be difficult to realize you have an issue in the duct system since most of your ductwork is located behind your ceiling or walls, or in the attic. So when you start to experience energy inefficiencies or poor air quality, you may think the problem is coming from your heating or cooling equipment.
