We Can Help You Combat Allergies This Spring

Monday, May 4th, 2020

pollenOh, spring. It is a season of milder temperatures, slowly lengthening days, and the anticipation of summer. It can be both a wonderful season of transition and one of ah…ah…..ACHOO….allergies. As great as spring can be with its warming weather and its beautiful burst of flora, all that extra plant growth also translates to an increase of pollen, dirt, and dust which spells trouble for those of us with allergies.

Spring, also known to those of us with overactive immune systems as allergy season, can be nice—but it can also be a time of year when a lot of people are more-than-willingly holed up at home trying to wait out the wave of pollen. Unfortunately, even home may not be the safest place for this if you don’t have a way to stop all those allergens from getting inside.

We are happy to tell you though that there is a solution to your home allergy qualms in the form of indoor air quality systems in Jackson, MS.

Monday, April 6th, 2020

happy-couple-comfortableSometimes during the colder months of the year, the air in our homes, while warm, can start to feel a bit stale. If your home is well-sealed, it means all that warm air has likely been filtered and refiltered endlessly, meaning that it is physically warm, which is good for your comfort, but it is also going to feel overly filtered, which is bad for your indoor air quality.

Maintaining Great Indoor Air Quality

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

UV-liightIf you think that the air in your home is of a higher quality than the air outside by default, it isn’t. We all know that there is some pollution in the air outside, but few homeowners understand that the air quality indoors is often lower than that outside. Fewer realize that this is often the case by a significant margin! Remember, modern homes tend to be sealed up very tightly. That’s great for energy efficiency, but not so much for indoor air quality.

Fortunately for you, the IAQ professionals on our team are never more than a phone call away. Environment Masters, Inc. is here to find the right air filtration and/or purification systems for your needs. Don’t count on the standard air filter in your whole-house heating or air conditioning system to do the job. Those filters are of relatively low-efficiency ratings and are really there to protect the HVAC system itself, not the air quality throughout the home.
