Indoor Air Quality
Between work and home life, the average person spends about 90 percent of their time indoors. Indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outside air. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranked indoor air quality (IAQ) as a top five environmental danger.
A well-insulated home can help with your energy bills by keeping a constant temperature, but that also leads to the same air being recycled through your home each time you run your air conditioner or furnace. Be sure you have proper filtration in place to prevent allergens and bacteria from circulating through your air.
1st Choice Heating and Air Conditioning can help you breathe easy. Call us today at 732-378-9189, and we can put together a plan for your home.
According to the US Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR® program, leaky ducts in attics or crawl spaces can account for 20 percent or more of a home’s heating and cooling energy losses. This makes it difficult to keep your house comfortable and can result in higher utility bills. Some signs you may have leaky ducts include:
- High summer and winter utility bills
- Rooms difficult to heat and cool
- Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
- Ducts located in an attic, crawl space, or garage
- Tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system
Learn more about how you can detect, prevent, and fix air duct issues with the help of our professionals at 1st Choice Heating and Air Conditioning. Find out more about duct testing, duct insulation, and duct cleaning, as well as how they relate to and impact indoor air quality.
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
The comfort of your home not only depends on the air temperature but also the amount of moisture in the air.
Cold weather typically means dry, uncomfortable air. Dry air can cause respiratory problems as well as damage wood furniture. Whole-house humidifiers emit water vapor to increase the humidity in your home.
On the other hand, hot weather can mean thick, humid air. This can lead to condensation on your windows, mold spots on walls or ceilings, and blistering paint or peeling wallpaper, just to list a few issues. A whole-house dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air in your home.
Whole-house humidifiers can improve your indoor air quality, as well as positively impact the overall health of your family and health of your home. Controlling the humidity in your home will help protect not only your respiratory system but also your wood floors, furniture, and artwork.

Boiler Repair in Howell, NJ 07726
“1st Choice was recommended to me by a friend so I called the Howell office and Gabe was able to get me an appt the same day for a problem with my boiler. Bill came to my house and determined I needed a new part. He was very nice and professional and gave me an overall assessment of my very old system but said it was worth replacing this part. Unfortunately, the part needed to be ordered and another guy would need to come the next day to install it.
The next day, a guy that came to my house, I think his name was Mike, was not very professional and I could tell from the minute he walked in the door I was going to have a problem. And I did. He was brand new with 1st Choice. He did install the new part I needed, but I had no heat. I called Gabe back and told her the situation and I said I do not want the same guy back in my house, so she said "definitely not" and would send Chris, her husband/owner.
Well, Chris came back to my house the same day and was very professional, like Bill. I explained the story regarding Mike and said I wasn't particularly happy. He looked at my system and, after quite a long time of examining it, he determined Mike did install the part correctly but there was another issue that Chris believed may have been intentionally caused by Mike. Chris told me that before he arrived to my house, he had already fired Mike, which didn't surprise me in the least. Chris was brutally honest with me and told me what Mike had possibly done. I was floored with what he said but I was more appreciative that he told me the truth as opposed to trying to hide it. Because of his honesty, I was not angry at all and simply grateful for telling me what happened and he was able fix/correct the problem.
I guess sometimes you never truly know the people you hire and this guy (Mike) was a bad dude. He had a bad attitude when he arrived to my house, complained about the company to me and I can now see why he has jumped around from company to company. Hindsight: I should have told him to leave the minute he walked in.
I am thrilled, however, to find a heating/AC company which is owned by a guy like Chris who takes his job very seriously and knows, understands and appreciates how hard it is to get a new customer and, more importantly, keep a new customer. That new customer is me and I would call 1st Choice with any system issue.
Maybe the best part was Gabe, who answers all the phone calls. She is calm and is genuinely concerned with any problem you have and if you need someone the same day, does her best to get someone there. Thank you 1st Choice.”

“Incredible. Chris fit me in his busy day when temps reached 100 and my AC crapped out. He found a bad capacitor in the condenser within minutes it was replaced and we were back and running.
I know I’ll be replacing my again AC next season, and Chris will be the only one I’d think to call. Awesome, honest and friendly service.”
