Improving Your Home’s Air Quality

Published by Webmaster

Believe it or not, the quality of your home’s air can have a big impact on your life. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, your home’s air quality may be worse than the air quality that’s outside. This is especially startling in a city like Chicago that is extremely industrialized and populated with trains, cars and people. As an HVAC company in Skokie, part of our business focuses on helping our customers improve their indoor air quality. Here are some simple methods that can make a big difference.

Adjust Humidity Levels

Making sure that your house has the right humidity levels (somewhere around 45 percent) ensures that there is no mold growth yet also ensures that your home isn’t overly dry. Talk to our HVAC company in Skokie if you have questions about achieving the right humidity level.

Avoid Synthetic Air Fresheners

Many synthetic air fresheners and wax candles emit harmful chemicals that are damaging to inhale. Instead, turn to natural products that emit safe particles into the air, such as beeswax candles, soy candles or homemade air fresheners.

Clean Your Floors

Your floors hold onto a lot of potentially damaging chemicals emitted in your home. Carpets are especially known to trap particles. If possible, minimize the amount of carpeting in your home and vacuum as frequently as possible to keep your floors clean.

Great experience all around. From the email and phone call, confirmations etc. The whole group made me feel comfortable and confident that I had chose the right company to do business with. My A/C unit was turning on and off and Elite sent out a very knowledgeable and courteous technician to check, tune up, and recharge my refrigerant. Steve the technician was knowledgeable and walked me through the entire process and was very upfront with what I needed and didn't need. All went well they were on time and got the job done in a timely and professional manner. Customer for life and will refer them gladly.

We contacted Elite HVACS on one of the hottest days of summer(we had no central air for 2weeks) and they sent some1 out same day to assess situation & decided to go with them for the work. I am happy to say that not only did we get the central air going but also replaced the heating unit which was old. Everyone we talked to from beginning to end were very professional, courteous and the work was very efficiently done. I would highly recommend this company.

I have had Juan and others from the team over a few times now. They always arrive within the time window provided and provide solid work. Price has always been fair for anything they've performed maintenance on and was always discussed upfront before being work begins. I would recommend them to anyone in the area.
