Why Should You Be Concerned with Indoor Air Quality?
In most instances, the air quality in your home is out of sight and out of mind. However, there are various reasons you should be concerned about its quality.
- Affects Your Health: You breath the air in your home at all times, so any impurities in that air can quickly affect your breathing. For allergy sufferers, or anyone with a respiratory issue, poor air quality can sometimes be the difference between life or death.
- Costs Money in Energy Consumptions: The impurities in the air also make their way into your air conditioner. This can translate into clogged filters and condenser coils, which have to work harder just to cool or heat your home, raising your utility bills in the process.
- Lowers Life Expectancy of HVAC System: A traditional HVAC unit can last roughly 15 years if properly maintained. If the indoor air quality in your home is a problem, that life expectancy can easily be cut by more than half. Eventually the need for replacement may arise, which is never something a homeowner hopes for.
- Increases Dust and Ductwork Issues: The more dust and dander that is in your air, the dirtier your house may become. No matter how often you clean, more dust than usual will find its way into your home. Eventually it will also make its way into your ductwork, which can be another repair issue unto itself.
If you’re concerned about the indoor air quality in your home, call our professionals for help. We can inspect your home and ductwork, and determine the best course of action to mitigate any possible health concerns.
What Causes Poor Air Quality?
One way to improve your air quality, is to know what’s affecting it in the first place. One good example is a dirty air filter. Air filters should be replaced frequently, especially for homes with pets. The longer a dirty air filter is in place, the more impurities find their way into your home.
Another example of conditions that affect your air quality is homes with pets. Dogs, cats, rabbits, and pretty much anything else with fur, can be affecting your air quality. As these animals shed they release pet dander, which can clog your filter, or find its way into your air ducts.
Similarly, homeowners that do not clean often, and allow dust to accumulate, may be damaging their air quality in the process. A great way to keep your air clean is to perform regular house cleaning, especially dusting.
