What’s In Your Air?

Did you know that the air inside your home is 2-5 times more polluted than the air you breathe outside? The most common sources of these pollutants are pets and people who tend to bring contaminants inside with them. They can also be left behind by pests like rodents or insects that you may never see in your home. The pollutants can be a key source of inflammation for asthma, allergies and other health-related issues. Some of the most common Brazos Valley air contaminants are:

  • Particles: dirt, dust, pollen spores, pet dander, candle soot
  • Bio-aerosols: viruses, mold, bacteria, living microorganisms
  • Volatile Organic Compounds: odor-causing contaminants, chemical gases, solvents

While most air contaminants enter your home naturally and are safe in low levels, you want to be sure that your AC system is capable of filtering all of the kinds of pollution from your air.

Can Professionals Increase Your IAQ?

Including expert AC specialists in your indoor air quality journey is a smart decision. Our team at Barker’s Heating & Cooling stays up to date on the most modern and effective filtration and purification methods for all types of air contaminants. This means we know every system to offer, how to target specific pollutants in your air and even the efficiency of different filter materials. We can advise on the most common College Station home filtration methods, such as:

  • Whole-home filtration
  • UVC purification
  • Ionizers
  • Electrostatic filters
  • Carbon filters

How Can You Improve Your Air Quality At Home?

Luckily, air quality specialists are not the only solution to your air contaminant problem. There are several great things you can do in your own Brazos Valley home that can significantly reduce the pollution in your air. Implementing these techniques is easy and doesn’t disrupt your life – plus you’ll be doing everything in your power to make your home a cleaner breathing space.

  • Make Sure Your AC Filters Get Cleaned! – We recommend setting a reminder for yourself to check and clean your AC air filter every few months. If you suspect your air quality is low, this is the first place that you can really make a difference. Air filters are designed to remove contaminants as they blow through the filter, but if they’re full they can’t do their jobs. Make sure your AC system is working with you instead of against you!
  • Vacuum Your Carpets and Rugs – Cleaning your carpets and rugs more often can absolutely help with the presence of dirt, dust and dander in the air – especially if you have pets! Floor coverings are prime spots for pollutants to linger for weeks, so eliminate that hiding spot and breather deeper!
  • Turn On Your Kitchen Vents – Cooking can create a good amount of steam and moisture in the air. Using your kitchen vents – and even attic vents – allows that moist air to be pushed directly outside instead of making its way through the AC system and possibly collecting where it shouldn’t.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Very Professional

Chandler did an excellent job checking out our heat pump. He was very professional, communicated well, was responsive to our questions and I was very happy with everything he did.

Steve M.

Honest and Trustworthy

Our AC went out during a late summer heatwave. Called Barkers and Victor worked very hard to get the outside unit up and running. Two hours later we conceded to the death of a 29 yo unit. Victor notified the office the next morning, and within 24 hours we had a complete new system installed, and the house cooled by the time I got home from work. Highly recommend. Honest and trustworthy.

Susan H.

Very Impressed

We were impressed by this company from the first phone call. Reed was an exceptional young man; very personable and professional. The installation team of Mike, John and Cody did an excellent job. Barker’s is a business with high standards and we are very satisfied with everything about them. So glad we found this company!
