Rains Mean More Pollen! We’ll Help Protect your Indoor Air Quality

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

woman-with-allergiesIt’s been raining this week and last week in Fresno, CA. This rainfall is very welcome, since we’ve been going through a drought and rain brings relief for farmers.

One of our jobs here at Purl’s Sheet Metal is to help locals improve their indoor air quality. We have solutions to keep control of the pollen count and other allergens inside your house.

What Kind of Air Filter Do I Need to Clean My Home’s Air?

Monday, June 8th, 2015

If your home has a forced-air heater or central air conditioning system, then it is probably equipped with a filter located near the air handler.
