It seems the flu is unavoidable this year!  When allergies and ways to avoid the flu become a common conversation starter while the temperatures are dropping, and coworkers and friends are dropping like flies as they succumb to the dreaded flu and other viruses and infections. Outside of the standard advice like wash your hands regularly, get enough sleep, exercise and eat healthy foods, there’s one thing that is the most overlooked way to avoid the flu this year: Audit and Upgrade the indoor air quality in your home or business.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that we spend more than 90%+ of our time indoors AND that our indoor air is more polluted than the outdoor air in industrial cities. This staggering statistic alone probably has you wondering what are your options to improve the indoor air quality of your home or business?

An easy and often overlooked option? Change your filter.

It’s sometimes the most important, but overlooked option you have to improve indoor air quality. Whether it’s foot traffic, recycled air, pets or other pollutants, you should check your filter often and change when appropriate to help reduce the number of allergens and pollutants that make their way into the air you’re breathing!

Want to be really sure you’re breathing the cleanest air?

Elite is proud to be a recommended contractor with Austin Energy and available for their home energy audit program, so you can have peace of mind that you’re working with an expert in the industry. This expertise allows us to provide top-notch replacements, weatherization programs, new ducts and air infiltration techniques that can improve the quality of the air, and also reduce the cost of your energy bills. They’re not always necessary, however….

What’s another option?

Of the many indoor air quality products we offer our customers, including more extensive and expensive options like replacing the HVAC system or replacing the ductwork, we highly recommend and get raving reviews from those that have Elite install a REME Halo air purifier into their HVAC system.

We also know we don’t have to remind anyone living in Austin or the surrounding areas about how bad allergy season can be here! Not to mention it can sometimes feel like a year-long issue. Yuck!

The amount of pollen, ragweed, mold, cedar and so many other allergens and pollutants that make their way into your home each year can be too much for many people to handle.
