Although finding the perfect balance between hot and cold is essential, many homeowners only focus on temperature. What they also need to do is look at the humidity levels and indoor air quality that is affecting the oxygen that they breathe. Here is a look at what homeowners should learn about the IAQ of their homes and how professional technicians can help to improve the conditions inside their homes.
The Air Filters
Only changing the air filters a few times a year will negatively affect your indoor air quality. While homeowners may tend to think it doesn’t matter, it does make a big difference. Asking expert HVAC technicians to take you through the process of inspecting filters and changing them is always a good call. It’s not too late to change out the filters that are currently installed, even if it will be time to change the filters again before summer ends and fall begins.
Purifying the Air
Another thing that many homeowners overlook is how pure the air they breathe is. Mold and mildew can settle on the evaporator coil of any HVAC system. It doesn’t matter if it is for residential purposes or commercial use; these pests can ruin the indoor air quality of any building and make everyone inside start to feel sick for no apparent reason. Using UV light systems to kill mold spores before they spread is a step in the right direction, but it’s still not as effective as booking an appointment to have the coils cleaned.
Dealing with Dust
One chore that many homeowners can’t stand is dusting. Dust buildup can make allergies worse and generally make everyone in your family feel miserable – pets included! That’s why it’s so important to deal with dust. This is not something to ignore. If there is too much dust in your home, then it is a sign that the filter is too clogged to do its job and needs to be switched out.
