How Is Your Indoor Air Quality?

Air quality is something that has many people very concerned. Unfortunately, while outdoor pollution levels continue to get a great deal of attention, many people are completely unaware of the fact that indoor air quality in Boise is often much worse than the air outdoors.

Are You Ready For an Idaho Winter?

The days are getting shorter, the wind a bit crisper… yes winter is on its way! Are you ready?  Is your Boise HVAC system ready? In fact, the changing of seasons is a great reminder for scheduling not only routine maintenance, but also making sure your heating, and cooling system is ready for the cold weather that’s surely on the way.

Why Are Clean Filters So Important?

Heating and cooling systems cost a lot of money to operate in Boise and even more when they don’t work at 100% efficiency.

Indoor Air Quality and You

Here in the Treasure Valley area of Boise, Idaho, we live in what is called the high desert. We have good share of dust and allergens from trees and desert grasses and weeds. Then there is pet dander, smoke, mold, etc. So, let's talk about HEPA filters. HEPA is an acronym for 'High Efficiency Particulate Air'. A true HEPA is a type of filter that removes at least 99.97% of particulates such as dust, animal dander, smoke, mold and other allergens that are 0.3 microns or larger, from the air.

Water Heaters in Boise

Hot water in Boise and Meridian is essential to our everyday lives. Just think how life would be without the ability to take a hot shower, wash laundry, or clean the dishes? We have come to expect that when we turn on the faucet, we will have hot water. When you find there is no hot water, every thing comes to a standstill. Heating water for our homes also makes up a large part of our monthly energy costs. But as we all know, hot water tanks die!. In fact the average life of a gas or electric hot water tank is about 8 to10 years.
