You spend a large portion of your time inside your home, meaning that it’s vitally important that the indoor air there be of the best possible quality. If your HVAC system needs to be cleaned or the filter needs to be changed, you could be breathing contaminants without realizing it. This can affect your overall health, as well as triggering respiratory allergies. Regular HVAC service can improve your indoor air quality by doing the following:
Eliminate Pet Dander
If you or someone in your home has animal allergies, they can be triggered by a build-up of pet hair and dander in your home or in your HVAC system. However, a well functioning system with a clean filter can remove a great deal of these allergens from the air in your home before you develop respiratory issues. Our skilled technicians can help evaluate your HVAC system, replacing the HEPA filter and cleaning the ducts on a regular basis to remove animal allergens. You’ll notice a dramatic improvement in respiratory allergy symptoms once your system is being correctly maintained.
Remove Mold and Mildew
If your home’s HVAC system has not been well maintained, there may be mold or mildew spores growing in the ductwork. If this is the case, these pollutants are also circulating through the air that you breathe. Having your ducts cleaned and a new filter installed on a regular basis will remove these pollutants and keep them away. If anyone in your house is reacting to spores circulating through the air, removing them will make a dramatic difference in both respiratory health and overall health.
Maintain Appropriate Humidity
Issues with your home’s HVAC system can cause serious humidity issues. If your system is not appropriately regulating the humidity in your home, you can wind up with issues with mold and mildew. If the humidity is too high or low in your home, you may also find that the indoor air quality drops overall and it’s more difficult to breathe. A skilled HVAC tech can determine what’s causing the issue with your system so that this issue can be fixed as effectively as possible. If your home has an HVAC system, scheduling regular service is vitally important. A skilled HVAC tech can evaluate your entire system and provide you with a quote to repair any issues that you’re experiencing. It can be far less expensive to repair small issues that are discovered during maintenance than to replace an entire system after something major breaks. Contact our professional technicians today to begin improving your indoor air quality, as well as having your overall system evaluated. We’ll make sure that you’re breathing the cleanest air possible and that your system is correctly maintained.
