How to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home?

After a long day, you and your family want nothing more than to come home to a relaxing and comfortable environment. Whether that means being warm in the winter or cool in the summer! However, the temperature of your home is not the only way to increase comfort, the air quality is also an important aspect.


With the furnace or air conditioner running constantly throughout the year, there comes an increased risk of dust and other air particles building up in your home. These particles can increase your family’s chance of illness, especially to those who suffer from lung diseases.


Changing Air Filters


Changing the air filter will help improve the air quality in your home. A fiberglass filter should be changed every 30 days, while a pleated air filter can last from three to six months depending on how long your unit is on.


Not only will changing your filters to improve the air quality, but it will also improve the efficiency of your unit.


Make Your Home Smoke-Free


Changing air filters are not the only way to improve air quality. Making your home smoke-free is also effective. Ban all tobacco and other products in your home.


Control Humidity Levels


High humidity levels can cause mold to grow. The best way to tackle this issue is to control humidity levels. You can do this by fixing any leaks, damaged caulking or grout around your bathtubs, showers, and sinks. Check your pipes for condensation, and use an exhaust fan when you are showering. The fan should run for at least 30 minutes after a shower.


Using a de-humidifier in the summer will help remove any water in the air, be sure to empty the water when you’re not using it so that bacteria cannot grow.


When doing your laundry, make sure the water from your washing machine is draining properly. Seal the joints around the dryer duct with foil tape, and make sure the outside dryer vents are not blocked. When you can, hang your clothes out to dry.


Those are just a few ways that you can improve the air quality in your home. If your air conditioning unit or furnace requires maintenance, trust the experts at Twintech! Our technicians have experience in all types of heating and cooling units. We can also inspect your ductwork for any signs of leaks and make any necessary repairs.

Finally! An honest company with highly knowledgeable and informative staff. Had a furnace service and found multiply errors in our system from an amateur installer. Very fair price to correct problems and will definitely use again.

by alisiena from Toronto on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Fantastic team. Completed the job as per the specifications and in under 3 hours. Highly recommended Twintech.

by David from Toronto on Twintech Heating and Cooling

During the summer, I previously hired TwinTech to replace my air conditioner when it failed. They did an excellent job so when I decided to proactively replace the furnace I contacted them. The furnace I had was 22 years old and showed signs of internal leakage. It still worked but rather than wait to have it fail in cold weather, I decided to purchase a higher efficiency model before it failed and take advantage of energy efficiency rebates. TwinTech offered very useful advice on the make and model of furnace to choose including high efficiency and variable speed motor. The price was reasonable, TwinTech arrived at the allotted time, installed the new furnace (including some re-routing of exhaust lines since the existing ones were too close to other vents), removed the old furnace, tested the installation and cleaned everything up. Overall, it was a good experience, they did a great job and the new furnace is working well.

Greg came over at 9:30pm to rescue my daughter and I from a horrible experience with Enercare that evening. He was professional. Kind. And got us what we needed quickly and at an afford price. I would 100% recommend calling on Greg and his team for any of your heating and cooling needs in the future!!

by Matt C. Oshawa on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Installed a great hot water heater when our old one failed. When my furnace died during cold weather they showed up quickly and my house was warm before my wife got home. :)

by B Davis in Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

I don’t usually right reviews but when you receive service like this I felt it was a must. Honest and fair. I Have 4 children and on Xmas eve my furnace stopped working and a gentleman came out and got me up and running so at least we would have heat for the holidays. As promised he would replace my furnace early in the new year. The job was completed on time, great price for quality furnace and extremely clean and professional job. Would have never known anyone was in the house. Not a spec of dust or mess from lugging out an old rusty furnace. If you have any ac or heating concerns twintech is your only option. I was royally impressed with and I’m sure you will be too.

by stan.marosek from Ajax on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Class Act ! These guys were professional right from the quote stage through to installation. They know their stuff and took their time to help educate me. They take pride in their work and it shows. I would recommend TwinTech Heating and Cooling to anyone. Keep up the great work !!!

by W. Lacombe in Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

This Company is terrific. No high pressure sales and they deliver exactly what they promise to deliver. The new furnace is great and we now get consistent temperatures throughout the house. The installers were great and very efficient and completed the work on schedule on the promised day. Everyone representing this company was very aware of their presence in our house and worked diligently to keep our home as uninterrupted and as clean as was humanly possible. We did not need to go around the house to clean up after they left, what a nice surprise. We have had follow up by the company to ensure everything is to our satisfaction. How unusual in today's environment. The impression left by Twintech is that they care about us and our home. This is so refreshing in today's high tech world. Out thanks go out to Dave in sales and G, G, and P (the installers).
