What Are You Breathing?

Primary cause of indoor air quality problems are pollution sources such as: oil, gas, kerosene, asbestos, cleaning supplies, pesticides, chemicals, outdoor air pollution, etc. 

“Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. In addition, it can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue. People who already have respiratory diseases are at greater risk.”-American Lung Association

Knowing your alternatives and how to improve your family’s indoor breathing experience is highly important to A+ Heating, Cooling and Electric.  We want to know that you and your family feel well taken care of. 

Other indoor sources such as mold, mildew, bacteria, viruses, pollen, and dust mites can also become an issue.

The effects of breathing in mold and mildew can be quite similar to seasonal allergies.  Symptoms include itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, difficulty breathing, fatigue, headaches and in severe cases infection or development of asthma.

Breathing in bacteria/viruses can lead to many different ailments including bronchitis, pneumonia, croup, etc., which can lead to a start of many doctor bills.

Allergies and asthmatic diseases can be traced back to dust mites.  These pesky little mites can be found on bedding, mattresses, upholstery, carpets and other textiles in your home.  Symptoms of breathing in dust mites are very comparable to other allergens.  Concerns should rise when you develop asthmatic symptoms or symptoms comparable to a common cold.

Between mold/mildew, bacteria/viruses, pollen and dust mites, A+ provides services to help.

The filtration systems we provide are: room air purifiers, whole home air filtration, dehumidifier, humidifier, UV lamp, ventilators, and ductwork.

Also, make sure you are washing bedding, carpets, upholstery and other textiles regularly to cut back on allergens in your home.  Using natural cleaners and keeping chemicals and other chemical pollutants locked away, where they won’t affect your family and their health.
