Do I Need an Air Purifier or an Air Filter for My Home?

Monday, February 13th, 2023

If you’re asking this question because you want to know in general if indoor air quality devices are helpful for your home, whether an air purification system or air filtration system, then the answer is yes. You may not absolutely need one, but we highly recommend it.

Most homes have unwanted contaminants floating through their air. It’s difficult to avoid because of the numerous sources of indoor pollutants and the way houses have strong insulation against outdoor air that limits fresh air circulation.

But if your question is more specific—you want to know if you should purchase either an air filter or an air purifier for your home—then our answer is you can have both—and maybe you should. We’ll explain in more detail below.

Is Refrigerant Dangerous?

Monday, March 14th, 2022

One of the first questions we get from homeowners about their ACs refrigerant leak is whether or not it’s dangerous to have in your home. Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat, refrigerant leaks are not the same as gas leaks from a furnace. The two materials are very different and being near one is not like being near the other.

Gas leaks are flammable, and usually if gas is leaking from a furnace, chances are likely that other fumes like carbon monoxide are leaking as well. With a refrigerant leak, the only thing that’s leaking is refrigerant, which is neither flammable nor fatal.
