Winter Weather and Indoor Air Quality

Winter is upon us, and with its arrival, it brings the possibility of serious indoor air quality issues. Because windows and doors tend to be kept close to keep out the cold, issues such as asthma, allergies, and other respiratory diseases tend to rise during this time. Additionally, problems with carbon monoxide and humidity tend to increase as well, which makes the improvement of air quality a necessity that no house should go without.

At Neighborhood, we understand how complicated it can be to maintain the quality of the air you breathe inside your house, which is why, as 4th generation professionals, in service since 1947, we take the utmost care when installing the solution you need to improve the air you breathe at home.
