Why You Absolutely Need to Install a Carbon Monoxide Detector

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Most everyone has a smoke detector (or several) in their homes. It’s pretty easy to weigh the major benefits (safety, early fire warning, preservation of belongings) against the minor cost of purchase and installation. Far fewer people, though, have a carbon monoxide detector in their home. This is a problem, as carbon monoxide is just as much of a threat to your health and safety as fire is. Let’s examine the dangers of carbon monoxide, and why you should install a detection system. (more…)

Monday, May 25th, 2015

The air in your home may seem clear, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is.

If you want to improve your indoor air quality, and by extension your quality of life, you should install an air purifier in your home.

Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Monday, July 21st, 2014

You should know that the quality of the air in your home is every bit as important to your overall comfort as your ability to regulate temperatures effectively therein. If you want to boost your indoor air quality in Schaumburg, IL, you may require the assistance of an IAQ specialist. To work with one such technician, you need only call the pros at Service King. We have the indoor air quality products and services that you need to ensure that you have access to the clean, pure air that you enjoy.

One of the most common reasons that indoor air quality may suffer has to do with humidity levels. Both excessive and inadequate humidity levels may result in the degradation of your indoor air quality. Very dry air can aggravate allergy symptoms, see an increase in static shocks, and make it difficult to heat your home sufficiently. Excessively humid air, on the other hand, can lead to muggy, stuffy conditions in your home, while also promoting the growth of biological pollutants such as viruses, mold, and bacteria. A whole-house humidifier or dehumidifier can help to resolve such issues.

Airborne and biological pollutants are also very common indoor air quality problems to face, and it is necessary that you combat either of them with the right tools in order to boost your IAQ levels. Airborne pollutants can be filtered out of the air by using an air filtration system or an electronic air purifier. Biological pollutants, however, must be destroyed: they cannot simply be filtered out of the air. UV air purifiers are the perfect tool for the job. Just remember that any air filtration or air purifier equipment must be professionally installed and serviced if you want it to operate effectively.

Let Service King know if you are interested in improving your indoor air quality in Schaumburg, IL. We are more than happy to help you do so, and we are also fully qualified. No matter what issues you may be up against, you can count on us to resolve them effectively. Give us a call today to schedule your next service appointment with us.
