Should I Be Concerned About Indoor Air Quality?

If you haven’t given much thought to the quality of the indoor air you and your family are breathing, then it’s time that you do. Although it may seem as if outdoor air is far more likely to be polluted by chemicals, allergens, debris, and other undesirable elements, it’s important to understand that nothing could be further from the truth.

Studies show that the air people breathe in their own home and office areas can actually be up to 2-5 times dirtier than outside air in major industrial areas. There isn’t just one issue responsible for these frightening statistics either, as the average home tends to have more than one issue. These commonly include:

    • Pollution via a variety of different sources within the home. These sources can include appliances, chemicals, cleaning products, moisture, allergens, bedding, pets, and pesticides to name just a few.
    • Poor ventilation that only exacerbates the problem by preventing adequate air flow to and from the outside.

How Can You Improve the Quality of the Air in Your Home?

Thankfully there are plenty of ways you can go about improving the

    • you, your family, and your guests are breathing once you’re aware of the problem. One of the most obvious and effective ways to do this is by becoming aware of the sources of the pollutants in your home and taking the steps to minimize them.
      • Have appliances such as furnaces, stoves, dryers, and others maintained by qualified technicians on a regular basis. Professionals will be able to adequately test whether or not emissions from these items are at safe levels or not. Proper appliance maintenance can help you save on energy costs as well.
      • Don’t keep household cleaners, varnishes, or paints around if you don’t need to. Definitely don’t keep them indoors where your family lives. Store in a shed or garage area instead.
    • It can also help immensely to open your home up to the fresh air outside whenever you can, as this can be a highly effective cure-all. Open the doors and windows when the weather is pleasant and enjoy the fresh air. Also be sure to make adequate use of any and all ventilation fans in your home, especially the kitchen and bathroom. They are there for a reason!

Ultimately making sure the air in your home remains safe and healthy to breathe is all about awareness and maintenance. Try it for yourself today!

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
