Smoke is in the air. Is it in your home?

Smoke in Air
Sunday, September 10, 2017 - 8am

We're on fire. Literally. It's fire season and there are wildfires producing unhealthy breathing conditions across the state. Days on end of "Spare the Air" and don't go out after 3p if you can avoid it. But, what about the air in your home? Is it smokey too? The answer is some degree. Today's show really takes a look at how proper energy reduction in the home also cleans the air in the house as well. It becomes a healthier environment to live in as a result. How? Of course, that's what you'll listen to the show for as Duane Knickerbocker and Bill Small discuss the options, but one key element is the attic. Look up at your ceiling. See all those can lights, speakers, sprinklers and vents? They all leak air into the house from the outside. So you smell smoke? Now you know why! Unless your home has received the energy upgrades talked about in the show, it's likely you're leaking outside air into your home. Yes, that includes the smoke and dust too. Asthma could also be aggravated even by staying inside. And those expensive air filters from the big box stores, forget it. They're not going to do what you need them to do until you seal the leaks up first. There are so many benefits to getting your house sealed tight and operating right when it comes to home energy consumption that it behooves you to give the guys at Brower Mechanical a call. They'll do a free clip board audit and get you started on your way to a healthier home that's less expensive to run. Call 916-624-0808 today or visit on-line at Enjoy the show!
