If you are concerned about the quality of the air inside your home—and many people share your concern—then one option to consider is installing an air purifier in Ladera Ranch, CA. If you don’t already have an air filtration system in place (and the filter on the air conditioner cabinet does not count), we suggest you start with that. Mechanical filters are excellent at straining out larger contaminants that circulate through a household ventilation system: dust, dander, lint. Once you have the right filters installed, you can consider an air purifier to take care of the smaller particles that often slip through the mesh of a mechanical filter.

And what are those particles? Let’s take a closer look at what an air purifier can eliminate from your home’s air.

Your AC’s Fan Isn’t Working—Here’s Why

June 1st, 2020

You can probably figure out why a working fan in an air conditioning system is important. If there’s no fan, how will the cool air move through the vents to the rooms?

But there’s even more to it than that. There are two vital fans in an air conditioning system. The indoor fan is the one that distributes cool air through the house, and it also sends the air across the evaporator coil to cool it down in the first place. The outdoor fan is responsible for moving air over the condenser coil to release heat and then exhaust it outside. If either one isn’t working right, you won’t get cooling in your house.

How Hard Water Is a Problem for Your House

Hard water is common throughout Southern California, and Orange County is no exception. The hardness of our water averages about 300 per million or 18 grains per gallon. What does that mean? That’s already 10% of the recommended calcium for your daily diet contained within one glass of water. Sounds great if you’re looking to increase your calcium intake—but all that calcium and other minerals, like magnesium, are not good for your household plumbing or for your house.

This is why water softeners in Orange County, CA are often in demand, and why we install them. To help convince you to act to reduce the hardness of your home’s water, we’ve listed below how hard water creates household trouble.
