The Impact of Humidity on Your Cooling System

Monday, July 16th, 2018

Woman feeling hot and trying to refresh in summertime heatAs chilly as our winters are here in Utah, summers are nothing to dismiss. In fact, our summer can be pretty unbearable, without the right HVAC and indoor air quality products in place.

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.

When you use your central HVAC system or leave your windows and doors open, you are inviting airborne pollutants—dust, dirt, pollen—into your home. They can infiltrate your home through leaks in your ductwork or simply from the outdoors.

No, the solution is a lot more convenient than that—a whole-house air filtration system.
