The Benefits of a Whole-Home Air Purifier

Monday, October 10th, 2022

woman-comfortable-on-her-couch-leaning-back-with-closed-eyesWhen you step outside and take a deep breath you may think to yourself, ahhhh, fresh air! We often associate the outdoors with fresh air that’s full of oxygen that keeps us healthy. But the air is also full of allergens and contaminants, too.

If you’re interested in air purifiers in Salem, OR, our team can help.

“My Heater Is Drying Out My Air, What’s Wrong With It?”

Monday, December 7th, 2020

man-looking-at-thermostat-on-a-cold-daySo here’s the thing: there might not be anything wrong with your heater. If there is something wrong with your heater, we are definitely the team to call! And to be fair, this is a call we get pretty often. Dry air is an issue for folks running their heating system on a daily, and even hourly, basis.
