Indoor Air Quality - Home Comfort Blog


Make Your Home Comfortable, Healthy and Efficient

Posted by Jaclyn Thomas on Friday, September 8, 2017

  • Do you know if the air your family breathes is unhealthy or unsafe?
  • Are conditions (temp, humidity, dust, stuffy air) sometimes uncomfortable?
  • Does anyone in your home suffer from allergies or asthma?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, we can help. We provide a home diagnostic program that makes the invisible visible and shows you how to make your home as healthy, comfortable, and as safe as possible.

Our trained heating & air conditioning professionals can provide this simple, accurate testing to analyze the air quality in your home or even office.  Since you may not know how your HVAC system may impact your indoor air quality (IAQ), our professionals can recommend solutions to any problems detected.  And if no problems are noticed, we can explain why that’s the case and leave you to enjoy your comfortable home.

Comfort and IAQ

Pollutants aren’t the only contributors to poor IAQ. Today’s tightly sealed and energy-efficient homes can actually have negative effects on your home’s air quality because they might not be properly equipped to filter and purify the constantly

re-circulated air. Without adequate indoor air circulation, pollutants can build up over time, leading to poor indoor air quality.

Along with pollutants, temperature and humidity need to be balanced to create a comfortable and healthy home environment.

  • Are you too warm or cold at times?
  • Are bedrooms not comfortable enough for sleeping?
  • Do you find your home humid in the summer or dry in the winter?
  • Does your home generally feel cool and clammy?

Our in-home assessment will:

  • Detail any problems your home might have with heating/cooling, humidity, carbon dioxide levels, carbon monoxide
  • Provide recommendations for making your home more comfortable and healthy
  • Offer ideas that will help reduce your utility bills
  • Give you peace of mind

We will provide indoor air quality analysis for the first 15 callers absolutely FREE!  That is right, be one of the first 15 callers and we will run this test absolutely FREE.  Don’t delay and call now.

Carbon Monoxide – The Silent Killer

Posted by Jaclyn Thomas on Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Carbon Monoxide poisoning is very serious and could be easily prevented.  It is referred to the “silent killer” because it is hard to detect due to the lack or odor, being colorless and tasteless. One of the places CO can come from is your furnace. Our technicians are well trained in detecting a leak and it is important to regularly check for CO during your annual HVAC tune-up.

If your family was exposed to CO, symptoms of mild acute poisoning include: lightheadedness, confusion, headache, feeling like the world is spinning, and flu-like effects. Larger exposures can lead to toxicity of the central nervous system and heart, and death. After acute poisoning, long-term problems may occur.

Some sources of carbon monoxide in a home might include:

  • A car left running in an attached garage
  • Portable generators
  • Corroded or disconnected water heater vent pipe
  • Portable kerosene or gas heaters
  • Loose or broken vent pipes
  • Improperly installed kitchen range or vent
  • Operating a grill indoors or in a garage
  • Gas or wood-burning fireplace
  • Blocked of clogged chimney
  • Gas or oil furnace

Here at Peterman, our office manager Kristy often talks about and sends out paperwork concerning carbon monoxide detectors being sold.  Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer in homes.  It’s our responsibility to protect our customers.  It is important that you have a carbon monoxide detector in your home for any gas appliance (furnace, fireplace, water heater, etc.).  Even if you have a carbon monoxide detector currently in your home, please ask your service technician to check their manufacturing date, the life of a Carbon Monoxide detector is average 5 years (some are less than 5 years).

To get your HVAC system tuned up and to check for the “silent killer,” please call us at 317-859-4270. We will schedule you for the soonest appointment available.
