How to Tell You Need an Air Purifier

Monday, August 31st, 2020

There are plenty of modern, well-built homes here in Portland. Many of these houses come with a great selling point: they are well-sealed, which means they operate far more efficiently than other homes might. This is great news for your monthly bills but not always the best for your indoor air quality.

Well-sealed homes don’t exchange much indoor and outdoor air, and while that makes it easier to control the internal temperature of the home, it also, unfortunately, means that a large variety of airborne particles are in your home to stay once they find a way in. Thankfully, we have solutions that can help you enjoy both the air quality and temperatures you need. In this case, we would recommend an air purifier in Portland, OR.

No Ducts? No Problem! You Can Still Stay Cool

Monday, July 6th, 2020
