Air Pollutants: We can Help Most people notice when the air outside isn’t quite as fresh, so why would you want the same thing in your home? Indoor air pollutants can have a negative effect on your health, quality of indoor air and the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.

At Aramendia Plumbing, Heating & Air, we’re here to help. What are the types of air pollutants that can exist in your home? Particulates – These small floaters that range in size from a few molecules wide to the width of a human hair are egregious destroyers of home health. Don’t let their small size deter you. Recommended actions: Let Aramendia in San Antonio install an electronic air cleaner with at least a MERV-13 rated HEPA filter, while you spend time with your family. Gases – From mortal enemy carbon monoxide, to kitchen/fireplace staple natural gas, to silent, radioactive uranium/dinosaur-leftover radon, your home could be filled with health-threatening gases that require being handled with care, mitigated or avoided altogether. Recommended actions: Install carbon monoxide and natural gas detectors and test for radon. Call Aramendia, and we’ll install an appropriate ventilation system.
