Indoor Air Quality Services in Canoga Park
Improving the Air in the San Fernando Valley Since 1963
Breathing fresh air is vital to living a healthy life. Given the large population in Canoga Park and its proximity to the city, there are many contaminants that can lower your home’s indoor air quality. SoCal residents commonly deal with smog from the city and smoke from wildfires. That’s on top of the normal dust, mold, and pollen that can cause allergies or more serious health concerns.
The team at Canoga Park Heating & Air Conditioning are the indoor air quality (IAQ) experts in San Fernando Valley. We start every air quality service by listening. Our team will ask about the indoor air quality concerns you have in your home – whether you’ve got allergies, smells, or you want to protect the health of your family. We can perform a home air quality evaluation to assess your current environment and the cleanliness of the air. With all this information, we’ll recommend a course of action that will improve the air quality in your home.
The Best Air Filter for Los Angeles Homes
Studies conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency indicate that indoor air can have two to five times more pollutants than outdoor air. Most heating and air conditioning systems use a basic air filter – but these filters are not meant to improve your home’s air quality. Standard equipment filters simply help keep your HVAC equipment clean and free of debris. Here’s a scary thought: the average filter only removes 3-5% of the particles that pass through it.
There are many types of air filters available to help remove large amounts of particulates from the air. However, we advise homeowners to consult with an HVAC professional before upgrading to a high-efficiency filter. That’s because adding a filter with a higher efficiency filter means that there is more resistance for airflow. This seemingly good decision of choosing a “better” filter can translate to unexpected consequences – like higher energy bills and even frozen coils.
Our technicians can evaluate your system and recommend an air filter that will meet the needs of your household while maintaining the performance of your system. Consider investing in a performance evaluation or a maintenance service to get the most out of your home comfort system.
