Air Quality Awareness Week
Despite New Jersey's efforts to improve air quality, ground level ozone continue to be the state's most persistent air quality challenge. May 1-5 has been designated as New Jersey's Air Quality Awareness Week. Gold Medal Service, a BBB A+ rated heating, cooling, plumbing and electrical service company is aware of the state of the air quality in New Jersey and the effects it may have on families. To maximize the clean air you breathe the company has developed a list of tips for improving your home's indoor air quality.
"We need to protect our families by addressing the air we can control – the air inside our homes," said Mike Agugliaro, co-owner of Gold Medal Service. "We have received numerous calls from concerned homeowners about this very subject; it's a hot topic with our service experts. Gold Medal has the know-how and tools to help homeowners improve indoor air quality, reduce exposure to dangerous outdoor pollutants and allergens, and ensure that their family breathes clean air in their home."
Agugliaro offers New Jersey homeowners these tips to improve indoor air quality:
- Consider cleaning your air ducts - All of the air in your home makes its way through your central air duct system. These airways need to be cleaned at minimum every five to seven years while some homes with heavier exposure may require more frequent cleaning.
- Use your air conditioner - Air conditioning systems actually help reduce the contaminants inside the home. It's wise to have your AC unit checked by a licensed professional to ensure everything is working properly following the fall and winter season.
- Replace the air filter - Changing air filters regularly is an inexpensive and quick way to help improve your indoor air quality. During times when you're using your heat or AC 24/7, the professionals at Gold Medal Service recommend changing your filters once a month to maintain optimal air flow well and limit contaminants inside the home.
- Consider an air purification system - A whole-home air purification system are incorporated into a home's HVAC unit and virtually eliminates the allergens and toxins inside the home's air.
For New Jersey residents, a heating and air conditioning professional can assess the air quality inside the home and help homeowners ensure their family is breathing clean, healthy air all the time.
