Healthy Indoor Air: A.B. May Provides Expertise and Solutions

By  0 Comments

You’re sniffling and sneezing, and your eyes are swollen and teary. Your nose could outshine the brightest Christmas bulb. It’s allergy season again in the KC metro. But while pollen comes and goes, some families are under constant attack due to the environment inside their homes.

“Indoor air quality” is described by the EPA as the quality of the air in a home, school, office or other building environment. On average, we spend approximately 90 percent of our time inside, where concentrations of some pollutants are often two to five times higher than typical outdoor situations.

Cleaner Indoor Air
If you’re dealing with allergies or you have a concern with the air quality in your home, check with the trained and experienced technicians at A.B. May. They can help you reduce chemicals, dust mites, textile and carpet fibers, mold spores, dust, pet dander, bacteria, tobacco smoke and more to help you breathe easier by improving your HVAC system.

“Americans are aware of outdoor air pollution, but we don’t think about indoor air pollution. However, we have appliances running in our homes. Paints, furniture, carpeting and more are giving off their own chemicals and VOCs that irritate our allergies,” advised Lauren Timberlake, A.B. May. “Unfortunately, we don’t realize what lives around us in our homes. We have more processed products and many new chemicals constantly around us. We’ve gotten so good at boxing up the inside that we’re seeing air quality decrease in our homes. At A.B. May, we have a wide range of options to improve the air quality in your house. We’re a local company that does things right and works hard to make things right for our customers.”

A.B. May has been helping the KC metro since 1959. This family-owned business has more than 275 employees, serving multiple home service, heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical and appliance needs. A.B. May is also known for its local home warranty program and service plans. This company is focused on doing things right, prideful of its stellar reputation for making a difference. “When you call A.B. May, we take the time to understand the unique features of your home,” shared Lauren. “We listen to your needs and explain all your options, so you can make the best choice for you and your family.”

Providing Solutions
A.B. May features several possibilities to improve your home’s indoor air quality. Lauren notes that the company’s whole-home air purifiers with UV light are effective and popular. Harnessing the power of your heating and cooling system, these amazing systems improve the air in your home.

“It cleans with a chemical process very similar to the catalytic converter in a car. As ultraviolet light and activated charcoal react, they drastically reduce odors, germs and allergens in your home,” commented Lauren. “The only thing left is some water vapor. You will have pure, odor-free air throughout your home without any maintenance.”

A.B. May also features duct cleaning service and regular HVAC maintenance to improve indoor air quality. Dust, allergens, bacteria and even fungal spores tag along when air moves through your ventilation system. They can actually build up and hide in your walls. A.B. May employs a patented technology to thoroughly clean your ductwork and remove almost all contaminants.

“We offer a wide range of choices for the homeowner, and we can even combine technologies into your solution,” stated Lauren. “Upgrading to a high-quality air filter is another option you may consider. Our media filters are up to five inches thick instead of the normal one-half-inch thickness. Invite one of our technicians into your home to advise you on the proper thickness you need for your system. They are trained to listen to the customer and base recommendations on what you need, not a high-pressure sales pitch. The A.B. May way is to listen and then give you multiple options of what will work for your situation.”

Proactive Service
Regular preventive maintenance offers many benefits, from preventing allergens from piling up to ensuring that your heating and cooling system is operating at its maximum efficiency. “Preventive maintenance is not only good for your health; it saves energy and helps equipment last longer,” Lauren affirmed. “When your HVAC is dirty, it works harder to do its job, reducing its useful life and wasting money. Also, trained professionals looking at your system might see something that you haven’t noticed, a weak link that’s not apparent to you. It’s better to catch it early before it breaks down.”
