Winter Inversions and What They Mean for Indoor Air Quality

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

winter-inversions-indoor-air-qualityNo matter what part of the country you reside in, your indoor air quality can be worse than that of the quality outdoors. When you live somewhere like Utah, that becomes an even bigger problem—due to something called an inversion.

Wintertime inversions are a common occurrence here, and happen when normal atmospheric conditions become inverted, trapping a dense layer of cold air under a layer of warm air, and along with it trapping pollutants.

Why Should You Choose Whole-House Air Filtration?

Monday, November 21st, 2016

If you use a central air conditioning system to keep your home cool and comfortable during the summer, and a furnace to stay warm during the winter, then you may be putting the quality of your indoor air at risk. This is also true if you keep your windows and doors open often to allow for natural ventilation.

They can infiltrate your home through leaks in your ductwork or simply from the outdoors. Does this mean that you should stop using your HVAC system as much, or keep your doors and windows closed up more? No, the solution is a lot more convenient than that—a whole-house air filtration system.
