Beachwood, NJ – As the outside environment becomes more unpredictable, homeowners are spending up to 90% of their time inside their homes. This is leading people to put even more of an emphasis on the comfort and security of their families as they make their homes their oasis.

And it’s not just more extreme temperatures that are concerning homeowners…

Frank Horvath, President and Owner of Horvath Home Services, Inc., says he has seen a sharp uptick in calls about water quality and air filtration services.

Horvath, who has been providing best in class home service solutions to Ocean and Monmouth County residents for over 25 years, says “People want to know that their homes are doing what they are intended to do – providing their families shelter and protection from not only the weather, but also things like poor water quality and air pollution.”

For Horvath, one of the most important considerations is air quality. Families are spending more time inside, and in their quest to have the ideal indoor temperature and keep the unwanted elements out, they run the risk of circulating old, stale, or even unhealthy air.

“When we talk about HVAC systems, people only focus on the H for heating and the AC for cooling. They skip right over the V for ventilation which in my mind is the most important of the three. If you don’t have proper ventilation your air quality is at risk.” Indoor air pollution is a real thing and unlike outdoor air pollution, it can be more concentrated due to lack of proper ventilation. As homes become more energy efficient through better insulation, Horvath says we need to start talking more about the reality of indoor air pollution.

Some indoor air pollution examples include:

• Mold and mildew from damp conditions or undiscovered leaks.

• Common allergens like dust and pet dander.

• Tobacco and other smoke.

• Fragrances such as air fresheners, candles and cleaning supplies.

• Gasses like methane, carbon monoxide, and radon.

• Airborne chemicals from carpets, paint, plastics, and other materials

These pollutants can lead to discomfort and even health issues for the home’s occupants including headaches, light-headedness and fatigue, plus eye, throat, and nose irritation. If the problem is not corrected over time even more serious concerns may develop such as chronic respiratory issues and frequent illnesses.

Horvath says, “The biggest issue is that indoor air quality problems often go unnoticed because it’s not something that creates an immediate impact, like if your furnace or air conditioner stop working. That’s why early detection methods and regular maintenance of your HVAC and plumbing systems are the best defense against long term issues.”

Horvath says that people often don’t make the connection between regular maintenance of their plumbing system and the air quality in their home. “If you have an undetected leak that contributes to mold and mildew problems, that absolutely impacts air quality.”

That is why having a local, “one stop shop”, home service maintenance and repair company is so important. Horvath Home Services offers HVAC, plumbing, electrical, air and water filtration options and award-winning service to their customers.

Here are their best tips for helping their customers improve the air quality in their homes:

1. Regularly replace filters – Depending on usage, Horvath says they should be replaced every 30-60 days to reduce dust and particulates.

2. Open windows to let in fresh air on days when pollen counts and air pollution are low.

3. Don’t smoke inside and minimize the use of candles, air fresheners and toxic cleaning products.

4. Shop carefully for carpeting, furniture and home improvement supplies (paint, glues etc) with low or no off-gassing of VOCs.

5. Schedule an annual HVAC check-up and leak detection test. Regular inspection and maintenance can save big bucks on costly repairs when issues are discovered at earlier stages.

Thankfully, indoor air quality control can be easily improved through regular home maintenance and the latest advancements in air scrubbers, HEPA filters, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers.

But don’t try to google what you need. Start with professional advice to discover which one of these options is right for you by contacting your local Home Services expert. It will save you time, money and give you exactly what you need for your personal situation.
