Indoor Air Quality Questions

Bigstock

Positive & Negative Influences On Your Air Quality

There are a wide range of different things that can be good for, or bad for, your home’s air quality. You may be surprised by the things in your home that work to reduce unwanted elements within you air, and also by the things that damage your air quality.

Here are a few things that either positively or negatively impact your home’s indoor air quality.

The State of Your Air Filters

Having clean air filters in your HVAC system will help to keep your air cleaner, but failing to change them regularly can have an opposite, negative effect. When these filters are dirty and full of trapped particles, their ability to filter out dust and allergens that are continually introduced to your HVAC system will decline. When these pollutants can’t be properly captured, they will simply continue to be pumped throughout your home’s ventilation system.

The Phoenix Environment

Two things the Phoenix environment is known for is its the incredibly dry heat and it’s outdoor air pollution, both of which can have an impact on your home’s indoor air quality. 

Dry Heat & Low Humidity

The air in Phoenix is particularly hot and dry, which can lead to extremely low humidity levels in your home as well. A home’s humidity should be anywhere from 40% to 60%. A modern whole house humidifier can help to bring your home’s air to up to normal humidity levels, but if left unaddressed, low humidity can lead to some serious complications for you & your family including:

Air Pollution

Outdoor air pollution has become so bad in Phoenix that the smog that is sometimes visible over the city even has a name, The Brown Cloud. This smog cloud has grown due to the influx of new residents and tourists as well as the city’s location and weather patterns. The majority of the brown cloud is made up of nitrogen dioxide gas and carbon particles released by power facilities, gas fueled lawn mowers, other lawn equipment and cars. Dust from construction projects also contributes. This polluted air undoubtedly finds its way into your home at some point. Technology like an air purifier will help to clean unwanted contaminants out of your home’s air.

House Plants

House plants are your allies in the fight for clean indoor air. All plants help clean pollutants out of the air, but certain plants are real air quality champions and air cleaning powerhouses. Plants like bamboo, spider plants and snake plants are just some of the plants that are particularly good at enhancing your air quality. This happens through their normal photosynthesis process as they intake carbon dioxide and release oxygen back into the air.

If you suspect that your home’s indoor air quality is lacking and would like professional assessment and solutions, then call Hobaica at (602) 633-9555 for professional indoor air quality services.

Hobaica comes out every 6 months to do an AC checkup. John was our technician this time and did a great, thorough job. He went above and beyond to make sure everything was running how it should be. They have always been great and hope to have John back the next time.

Ryan is by far the best Service Technician. He has been out several times and has done plumbing and AC repairs. Recommend Ryan and Hobaica for all of your home needs they do it all. Thanks Ryan!! Extremely impressed with Amer and Juan. They are thorough and gave me advice on taking better care of my unit by changing my filter more often, I did not know that. Asked about my carbon monoxide dector and I found out online it had been recalled, had Amer not mentioned the dector I would not have checked it out. They are very Iinformative about the services Hobaica offers. Can't say enough good about Hobaica, and Amer and Juan. I do recommend Hobaica to my friends.

John Miranda was wonderful. He wore a mask, as we do in our house, and wore shoe coverings when in the house. These may seem like small things but they demonstrate respect and professionalism. He gave our system a serious review and changes interior filters. I hope that the for our next seasonal service that Hobaica sends him out to us again.

I had Hobaica out for HVAC maintenance and duct cleaning. It was soon discovered my unit was limping along on its last leg and soon to bite the dust. Luckily it got me thru the summer. James came and helped us get a GREAT system that should keep us very comfortable in the future! Great service, very professional and courteous - all technicians who came out were also! You’ll spend a little bit of $ but as they say, you get what you pay for!!
