Spring Is All About Savings - Save Your Air, Save the Planet, and Save You Money Published on March 19, 2016 Spring has arrived! Today is March 20th, the day Spring begins. The refreshing feeling this season of renewal brings is all around with the beautiful weather, the longer lasting sunlight, and the desire to clean your entire home. Your family has been stuck inside all winter so now it’s time to scoot those little rugrats out the door to release some pent up energy while you open the windows, turn up the music, and get to Spring Cleaning. Could you have guessed that Americans spend the vast majority of their lives indoors? Or that air pollution levels inside your home can be up to 100 times higher than pollution levels in outdoor air? Or that on a daily basis we breathe about 3,000 gallons of air? Since we spend most of our lives indoors breathing polluted air, it’s a relief to know there is actually a way to clean your home and save your air. So as you throw out old sweaters, scrub the baseboards, and steam clean away a season’s worth of dirt and who knows what else, don’t overlook cleaning your air. Yes, indeed – you can (and should) actually clean your indoor air. We’re not talking about spraying odor killer all around your bedrooms or putting cleaning products in a diffuser. Definitely not! Please don’t put chemicals in your breathing air – you are able to save your air with systems that remove dirt and kill germs lingering inside your home. HEPA air filters using hospital-grade filtration technology can destroy up to 99.97% of the pollutants in the air, including viruses, bacteria, allergens, and so much more. You can also purchase an air filtration system or germicidal UV light system to assist in keeping your home’s air clean Spring may be a time to clean your home and save the air, but it's also the perfect time to think about saving the earth. If even 10% of households invested in an Energy STAR-rated HVAC system, it would prevent 13 billion (that’s billion with a B!) pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions. If you are think about upgrading your HVAC system, Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is offering an exciting spring special on a new home comfort system and, if you choose a qualifying system, we are also offering a Smart Wi-Fi Thermostat at no-charge when you upgrade.
