Indoor Air Quality

Do you want healthier, more comfortable air in your home?

More than 50 million people in the U.S. suffer from nasal allergies and another 26 million suffer from asthma. But many people don’t realize indoor air can be more harmful than outdoor air. We spend the majority of time indoors breathing air that can be filled with asthma- and allergy-triggers like dust mites, molds, pet dander, gases or fumes and more.

What’s your comfort level?

Other factors that affect the overall comfort in your home can be consistency of temperature, humidity, noise and air circulation. Are some rooms in your home comfortable, while others feel too warm or too cool? Do condensation and/or mildew form on windowsills or walls? Do rooms become stale and stuffy when the furnace or air conditioner runs? Is your heating or air conditioning noisy? Do rooms feel drafty? Do you experience static electricity shocks in the winter?

If you experience any of these comfort issues, Hutchinson can offer solutions for a healthier, more comfortable home while helping you reduce your energy bills.

Ways to improve indoor air quality:

  • Keep humidity levels below 50 percent to help prevent mold growth
  • Use a HEPA-filtered vacuum
  • Replace air filters at least twice a year and consider high-efficiency particulate air filters
  • Clean air ducts every three to five years
  • Keep windows closed
  • Don’t use fans because they can stir up dust
  • Wipe surfaces weekly with a damp cloth
