And Celebrate National Healthy Homes Month Safely
There’s a famous saying: “Home is where the heart is.” And these days, this couldn’t be closer to the truth. After all, with 2020 starting off the way it did, there’s nothing more important than home and heart—especially when it comes to your family.
The last few months we’ve all spent a great deal more time inside with loved ones than we anticipated. And with more of that on the horizon this summer as we venture out cautiously, it just makes sense to ensure your home is healthy and safe—especially since June has been designated National Healthy Homes Month by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office. Here’s the good news: Your team of licensed techs at Central Air is here to help you celebrate. Along with providing premier AC installation in your Clackamas area home, we are suggesting the following home care tips:
- Freshen Up Indoor Air Quality
People typically spend around 85% of their time indoors. Of course, during a pandemic, that number is much higher! Take charge of your indoor comfort and your family’s health by ensuring you have the cleanest air around. Invest in an IAQ system from Central Air and you’ll easily alleviate allergies and asthma; reduce pollen, dust and dander; kill viruses and bacteria; reduce mold growth; and protect your heating and cooling system!
- Check Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarms
It’s always a good idea to check on your smoke alarms or carbon monoxide detectors a few times a year. Change or test the batteries to confirm everything is in working order. An easy way to remember this is to coordinate it with Daylight Savings Time. Remember: An alarm can save your life!
- Get a Yearly AC Tune-Up
A yearly tune-up by one of our licensed professionals will keep your air conditioning running at top efficiency all season. We’ll replace your air filters for improved air quality, clean all condenser coils––and more. Keeping things clean means you live healthier.
- Consider a Home Energy Audit
A professional energy audit allows a trained professional to conduct inspections and tests inside and outside of your home. An audit can determine where you may be losing energy efficiency and identify ways to improve it. Incorporating suggestions into your home can save you money and increase your family’s safety.
- Do Regular Water Heater Checks
Keep your family safe by calling a professional to conduct regular water heater checks. Don’t risk pipe corrosion, leaks or odd smells, which can adversely affect your home and aggravate your loved ones’ health.
