FAQs

A few ways to protect against indoor air pollution in your Parksville home are to remove or keep carpeting to a minimum, avoid smoking indoors, make sure your stove is well-ventilated (if you have a gas stove), clean your home frequently (especially dusting and vacuuming), turn on exhaust fans when using the bathroom or kitchen, open windows and doors to let the fresh air in, avoid the use of air fresheners and scented candles, keep lids on garbage, compost, or recycling bins, and remove shoes at the front door. Using dehumidifiers and other air filtration systems can also protect against air pollution. The Comfort Group is pleased to offer a wide range of air purification systems to Parksville residents. We carry air purification systems, filtration systems, and humidifiers from PureAir™ and Healthy Climate®, any of which can help improve the air quality of your home. Some of our bestsellers include the PureAir™ Air Purification System, the Healthy Climate® 16 Media Air Cleaner, and the Healthy Climate® Whole-Home Dehumidifiers.

Experts recommend changing your air filter every 90 days. (Unless you have a permanent filter, in which case it doesn’t need to be replaced, but it should be thoroughly cleaned every three months.) The reason that changing your air filter is so important is that air filters are responsible for collecting dust, dirt, pollen, mould, spores, and other debris before it enters your home. But dirt can easily build up if not cleaned regularly, and before you know it, your air filter is blocked or clogged, which can lead to several problems within your home, such as restricted airflow. Thus, Parksville homeowners should strive to clean their air filters every few months or hire a reputable HVAC company like The Comfort Group to clean their filters for them. The Comfort Group offers a wide range of HVAC services to Parksville residents, including repairs, installations, annual maintenance, and inspections. Our maintenance services always include changing or cleaning air filters in your HVAC or air purification units. If you suspect something is wrong with one of your units, give us a call right away. The Comfort Group is pleased to provide 24/7 emergency services. There are no extra charges for holiday, weekend, after hours, or emergency service calls. Simply get in touch, and we'll send a technician to your door in a matter of hours. 

Parksville homeowners can improve the indoor air quality of their homes by changing their air filters regularly (as mentioned above), limiting the amount of indoor humidity, keeping rugs and carpets clean (as they are known for trapping dust and dirt), using cooking vents or opening windows while cooking, and buying indoor plants. One final way to significantly improve the indoor air quality in your Parksville home is to invest in a top-of-the-line air purification system. The type of air purifying unit that’s right for your home depends on your unique needs (specifically, whether you're looking to address humidity issues in your home or ease your allergy symptoms). Contact The Comfort Group for a free home evaluation. A trained and certified technician will assess your home to determine your air purification needs. From there, we can install it for you. It’s that easy!
