Springtime around Houston, Texas is a blast! From outdoor BBQs to Baseball. But with all the time spent outside, have you thought about your indoor air quality? After all, Summer is right around the corner along with those hot muggy days. Our Air Conditioning systems play a big role in air quality. Poor air quality can lead to allergies and serious health issues. Let’s look at some things that can affect the air quality in your home.
The ducts are something we don’t see, but they are an integral part to keeping the air in your home clean. Humidity, dust and debris gather in your HVAC system. Over time, mold and bacteria grow on the coils in your unit. They can travel through your duct-work and blow into the house. Regular cleaning of your ducts can help keep the air in your home clean.
One easy step in helping to keep your indoor air quality healthy, is to replace and clean your air filters. Dust and other pollutants build up in the filter, and then are transferred into the air you breathe each time the system kicks on. Mark your calendar so you don’t forget to replace your filters at least every quarter. Be sure you use the right size and type of air filter.
Cleaning and Ventilation
A clean home and good ventilation contributes to improved air quality as well. Dust and allergens are brought into the house every time someone comes in. Cleaning your floors regularly is an easy way to improve the air quality in your house.
Another easy way to improve the air quality is to open the windows! Fresh air helps to clear up a room. To further improve the air in your house, buy an air ventilation system.
Regular HVAC maintenance will help not only help your HVAC system last loner, but it will also help to improve the air quality in your home, Dust and debris gather in your air conditioning unit and filter into your home, harming the air quality. Clean filters, ducts and AC components take the allergens out of your home, making it easier to breathe.
