How does my A/C System Improve my Air Quality?
How Does my AC System Improve My Indoor Air Quality?
With everyone’s mind on the COVID-19 pandemic, our team at A1 Service Heroes thought this might be a good time to talk about the relationship between your cooling system and the indoor air quality (IAQ) at your Indio home or business.
A healthy home for loved ones is essential. A well-running air conditioner (AC) is a surefire way to make your indoor air quality feel fresh, happy, and clean. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Poor IAQ can have serious repercussions on an individual’s health.” Since most of us spend the vast majority of our day indoors, taking care of our air conditioning, ventilation, and heating equipment is the best thing we can do to provide comfort for ourselves, family friends and yes, even our pets.
Our #1 priority at A1 Service Heroes is the health and safety of our customers and team. Every team member follows a strict protocol that begins with your first phone call to our company. We gather as much information as possible before we go into your home or business. Our goal is to keep a proper distance and get the job done right – day or night. Call today to set up your appointment, and it’s one less thing to worry about when the temperatures really start to soar.
How Does My Air Conditioner Affect My Indoor Air Quality?
It starts with your air filter. Whether you have an air conditioner, furnace, or heat pump, your HVAC system uses an air filter to capture a wide variety of particles that would otherwise end up in your home.
Here’s a tip to keep things working during the dog days of summer: Change your air filters at least every three months—more so if you have pets or a smoker in your home. A clogged filter struggles to remove allergens and particles that seep into your system. Plus, it will overburden your entire HVAC system and drive up your energy bills.
Why Am I Sneezing?
Did you know that on average, a home creates and collects 40 pounds of dust per year? No wonder you are sneezing! Not to mention the dust mites moving in. We all love our pets, but you can count on them to leave behind a trail of pet hair and dander. Household cleaners and chemicals, off-gases from new furniture or carpet, or residual fumes from things like paint add to the list of airborne contaminants. Bacteria, viruses, exhaust fumes, cooking odors, outdoor pollen, mold, and mildew all make their way into the average home as well.
