How Do I Prevent Indoor Air Issues?

Wondering how you can avoid poor indoor air quality? Here are some ways you can combat pollutants in your home. Invest in a powerful dehumidifier to keep mold and mildew spores at bay.

Develop the habit of dusting surfaces and cleaning your carpets and rugs often – especially if you have indoor pets. Also, change out your HVAC filter every three months to keep your system running smoothly. Finally, schedule a professional cleaning for your heating and cooling system to improve IAQ.

Practicing two or three of these options can go a long way when it comes to protecting you and your family from poor indoor air quality.

How Do I Fix Poor Indoor Air?

When it comes to correcting poor indoor air levels, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and not know where to start. However, there are plenty of quick and easy ways you can fight back without calling in an air tech professional right away. Some of the most common include:

  • Installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to notify you of toxins in the air
  • Cleaning your air ducts of dust and grime regularly

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!
