Air pollution can definitely be a concern here in southern California. But what many people don’t realize is, indoor environments don’t necessarily provide the clean-air haven they should. Instead, poor ventilation can cause concentrations of allergens like dust, pollen, and VOCs to be up to 5 times higher indoors than outside.
Fortunately, you don’t have to just live with dirty air in your home or business. Econo West offers a variety of solutions including improved air filters for your HVAC system and dedicated air purifying equipment to deliver the cleaner, fresher, healthier air you deserve.
What’s in Your Indoor Air?
Tightly sealed building envelopes are excellent for energy efficiency, but by preventing heated and cooled air from leaving the building, they also prevent indoor air contaminants from escaping. This means your indoor air could easily have high levels of contaminants like:
- Pet dander
- Skin flakes
- VOCs (gases from plywood products, adhesives, etc.)
These contaminants can cause a variety of problems. They may cause unpleasant odors as well as allergy- or asthma-like symptoms. VOCs can cause headaches, nausea, and other symptoms of “sick building syndrome.” Excessive dust can further erode your comfort by affecting your HVAC equipment’s performance. When HVAC filters and other vital parts get clogged with dust, this restricts air flow in the system and makes it harder to get heated or cooled air when and where you need it.
Enhance Your Comfort with American Standard Air Purifiers & Filters
At Econo West, we are proud to offer a variety of solutions for air purification and filtration from the trusted brand American Standard.
For minor air quality issues, we might first suggest upgrading to a better HVAC filter with a greater ability to capture allergens and pollutants as air passes through your HVAC system.
If you need more air purification, you might consider the Perfect Fit Air Cleaner, which removes 15 times as much contamination as a standard 1-inch HVAC filter while using no more energy than a 40-watt light bulb. We also offer the AccuClean Whole Home Filtration System, which is 100 times more effective than your average filter and captures 99.98 percent of allergens.
In any case, you can trust our experienced and knowledgeable technicians to recommend the right product for your needs and then install it properly.
