Indoor air quality depends on many things, including the outdoor air that passes through, pet dander, cleaning chemicals, and mold spores to name a few. Indoor pollutants can be torture for those with allergies or weakened immune systems. The EPA claims that your indoor air can be as much as two to five times as toxic as the air outside your home. There are steps you can take as a homeowner to improve the air you breathe in your home.

How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
So you know how important indoor air quality is to your health, but what can you do to help? Luckily, there are a few maintenance tasks that homeowners can do themselves to improve and maintain their indoor air quality levels. We recommend regular AC maintenance tune-ups to keep your entire system in good working order, but outside of those visits, set a reminder for the following:
- Change your air filter - we recommend once a month, but at the least, change it every three months.
- Keep the area around your indoor and outdoor AC units clean and free of debris and dust.
- Regularly dust all your indoor air registers and returns.
- If your central air conditioner is over 10 years old, consider replacing with a high-efficiency model.
- Ask us about installing an air purifier or UV light to sterilize the air.
- Keep your house clean. Routine dusting, vacuuming, and cleaning helps to eliminate dust and bacteria in the air. Try to eliminate cleaning products with harsh chemicals because they negatively impact your indoor air quality.
- Schedule an air duct inspection
Can your air conditioning system help allergy sufferers? Yes, it can, if it is well maintained.
AC systems help filter your home’s air and control indoor humidity, which is good for people with allergies. Properly maintaining your system makes the difference between your AC helping with those allergies and it makes them worse. HVAC maintenance is our specialty, so call us today, and we will make sure your system is in top condition.
One way to make sure your indoor air quality is acceptable is to schedule a maintenance plan by our team of certified technicians. Dirty ductwork that is full of dust, bacteria, and debris, do nothing good for your health. Dirty ducts also prevent full air flow which taxes your system and increases your utility bills. Luckily, the solution is easy, set up routine maintenance with our specialists and you will notice a big difference in the air you breathe in your home. It also helps to lengthen the lifespan of your HVAC system - win-win!
Ductless HVAC Systems
If you’d like to eliminate the ductwork altogether, a ductless mini-split system is a perfect solution. The ductless system doesn’t need air ducts, just an outdoor unit, and one or more indoor units. The mini split system puts air through multi-filtration, which means you are breathing cleaner air. The ductless system also lets you control the temperature room-by-room, so there’s no need to set the thermostat super low and cool the entire house when your focus is on one room. This zone control helps reduce utility bills and stretches the lifespan of your unit. Call us today to learn more about the ductless HVAC system and find out if it would work in your home.
