It’s important to have an efficient HVAC system. It’ll help you maintain comfortable temperatures and healthy indoor air quality in Ona, WV. Here’s a checklist to improve your indoor air quality so that you can breathe easier and sleep better:
Change the Air Filters
Clogged air filters hinder the ability of the air conditioner. If you keep dogs and cats in the house, pet hair and dander may float in the air and get trapped by the filters, impacting airflow.
Cooking grease and fine debris from construction, woodworking or sanding may also clog your filters, affecting your system’s performance. Change your air conditioner’s filter every month for healthier IAQ.
Clean Your Air Conditioner
Cleaning the air conditioner is useful to clear any leaves or debris on and around it periodically. Conducting preventive AC maintenance on the system is a good way to ensure that it functions effectively for healthier indoor air quality.
Our qualified service technicians will effectively clean the AC condenser coil during a routine check. Removing the dirt, bugs, dust and leaves from the coil helps increase the AC system’s lifespan.
Dehumidify the Rooms
The humidity of a given room has a huge impact on the air quality of your home. Dust mites and other allergens thrive in conditions with high humidity.
The warm and damp weather during spring causes moisture levels to rise in the home. Installing a dehumidifier helps regulate humidity levels and reduce the chances of survival for any allergens.
Conducting the above checks is a good way to reduce respiratory and other related conditions due to poor air quality.
