Frequently Asked Questions
There’s often a simpler solution to your comfort problem. Maybe you can find the answer you’re looking for in our FAQ below!
What is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?
Indoor air quality refers to pollution in your Mobile home or business. The concentration of airborne pollutants can be 2–5 times greater than in the open air. Since most people spend 90% of their time inside and breathe roughly 3,000 gallons of air everyday (according to the American Lung Association), this can eventually lead to problems.
Depending on your specific air quality issues, solutions include:
- Air filtration systems capable of trapping 99.97% of particles
- Germicidal UV lights to sterilize microbes like bacteria and mold
- Whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers that balance moisture levels
- Ventilation systems to refresh the air regularly and flowing smoothly
What brings about indoor air pollution?
Some of the typical sources of pollutants include Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs) such as cleaning or personal care products, fuel-burning utilities and kitchen appliances, and particulate matter like dust, pollen and smoke.
Can indoor air be dangerous to your health?
Absolutely. Pollutants and particulate matter can bring about illnesses and worsen respiratory conditions, especially for children and the elderly. For certain contaminants like carbon monoxide gas, the effects may even be lethal.
What are the health advantages of clean air?
Solving indoor air quality concerns can result in a host of benefits to your health and well-being, such as:
- Reduced risk of illness
- Fewer or less-severe asthma/allergy symptoms
- Relieve sinus irritation or sore throats
- Healthier, moisturized skin
How healthy is my indoor air?
If you find yourself cleaning every day or coughing constantly, your indoor air may be the reason why. According to EPA studies, indoor pollutants can reach concentrations as much as 100 times higher than the air outdoors. You can determine your indoor air quality by scheduling a Home Health® Report consultation with Climate Control Service Experts.
How do I know which indoor air quality product is ideal for me?
Each home has differing comfort needs, especially if someone in your Mobile home has allergies, asthma or a weak immune system. You may have a need for a single product like a high-efficiency air filtration system, or multiple. Climate Control Service Experts can help you find the right combination of equipment.
Are all HVAC filters equal?
No. HVAC air filters are different in quality and design, and some have exclusive features. We generally advise using the filter your HVAC manufacturer recommends pairing with your system. All filters are assigned MERV ratings on a scale from 1–20. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value and can aid you to identify high-efficiency filters. For most residential needs, a MERV rating of 11 or lower is appropriate.
How frequently should I replace my air filter at home?
The optimal schedule for cleaning or replacing your air filter depends on multiple factors, like the filter design and MERV rating as well as the current indoor air quality. For standard 1”-3” filters, most brands recommend replacement every 30-90 days. Pets, health conditions and even nearby pollution sources can lead to replacing the filter more often.
- A 1″ pleated air filter must be replaced every 30-60 days.
- A 2″ pleated air filter should be changed out every 3 months.
- A 3” pleated air filter should be changed every 120 days.
- A 4″ pleated air filter should be exchanged every 6 months.
- A 5” or 6″ pleated air filter ought to be replaced every 9-12 months.
Why is my throat dry when I’m home?
Presuming the problem is not your body’s hydration, extremely dry air can irritate your throat and sinuses. Look at getting a whole-home humidifier if you consistently struggle with a dry, itchy throat.
What are the advantages of a central, whole-home humidifier?
Your HVAC system removes moisture as it runs, leading to situations where humidity levels fall out of balance. Portable humidifiers can resolve humidity concerns in a single room or small area, but a central humidifier provides balanced humidity throughout the entire building.
What is the ideal amount of indoor humidity?
For many, comfortable humidity levels are between 30-60%. These levels are particularly hard to maintain in the winter, as cold air does not hold onto moisture as well as warm air. What’s more, your furnace displaces moisture by generating hot, dry heat.
How do I select the right humidifier?
The wisest way to find an appropriate whole-house humidifier is multiplying the total square footage by the height of the ceiling. This will help determine how many gallons of water/H2O is required every hour to ensure balanced humidity.
You should also consider your available budget, as a humidifier needs maintenance just like any other mechanical device.
How much water does a humidifier use?
While specific amounts depend on the model, whole-house humidifiers average between 1.5 to 12 gallons per day. Needless to say, arid environments will use more water to keep humidity stable.
What are essential tasks for whole-home humidifier maintenance?
Scheduled preventive maintenance is often essential for sustainable equipment efficiency, and your humidifier is no exception. The humidifier’s reservoir should be frequently drained and cleaned to prevent mold.
What is carbon monoxide?
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas released by partial fuel combustionwhich, in turn is frequently caused by inadequate access to oxygen. Appliances relying on natural gas, charcoal, wood or kerosene are common sources of CO gas, especially if they are not running correctly or have been installed incorrectly. CO is poisonous to the body and is lethal at high levels or extended exposure.
What are the effects/symptoms of carbon monoxide?
Initial symptoms such as nausea and tiredness are often mistaken as a result of the flu. But CO gas exposure can advance, oftentimes leading to confusion, organ damage or even death. Other symptoms include:
- Chest pain
Should I be worried about carbon monoxide in my home?
Yes. Getting rid of carbon monoxide should be a top priority because of the risk it poses to your health and well-being. CO gas can be discovered in any Mobile home or commercial property, making safe ventilation and prevention techniques universally beneficial.
What can be done to safeguard my home from carbon monoxide?
Prevention is the optimum place to start. A few safety precautions to take include:
- Don’t let your car idle in the garage. Cars are a significant source of carbon monoxide poisoning, so do not leave yours going in the restricted space of a closed garage. The same is true for gas equipment such as lawn mowers or snowmobiles.
- Don’t use ovens or grills as a way of staying warm indoors. These appliances are safe when used right but can make carbon monoxide when used for an extended period in small spaces.
- Never use a gas generator indoors. The fumes will have a much harder time dissipating.
- Have your chimney inspected by a specialist. This ensures chimneys and vents aren’t blocked and are connected appropriately.
- Confirm gas appliances are operating correctly, particularly your heater. You can ensure efficient, safe operation by scheduling routine furnace maintenance with Climate Control Service Experts.
If carbon monoxide has been detected, you should immediately vacate the building and alert the fire department and utility provider. If a leak is discovered, you should then contact a dependable HVAC company for repairs.
How can I get rid of indoor odors?
If an air freshener isn’t doing the trick, there may be microbes or contaminants nearby producing the unpleasant odor. Bacteria and mold are typical sources, but they can be fixed with the sanitation properties of a germicidal UV light. They are particularly effective against odor-producing microorganisms.
