Many people are unaware of the effects of poor air quality on their everyday lives. Bad air quality can cause chronic illness. Infections and allergic reactions are caused by indoor air pollution, especially in those with compromised immune systems, such as children, the elderly, and those with asthma. Several symptoms of poor indoor air quality in a home can be identified, including:
Since many of the symptoms are associated with other causes, determining the source can be difficult. Keep track of how long the symptoms last as a general rule of thumb. If the symptoms last for more than a few weeks, they are almost certainly the result of poor indoor air quality. Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling will help homeowners improve the efficiency of their indoor air quality.
Summer Plumbing Heating & Cooling provides a variety of solutions to improve indoor air quality. While each of the following tips is effective on its own, combining two or more of them will actively remove pollutants from the home’s air. Summers Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling provides the following services:
Dust can accumulate in the home’s air ducts over time, especially during the spring and fall months when the heating or cooling system is not used as frequently. When the system is powered, the accumulated dust is blown throughout the house and inhaled or returned to the system through ventilation.
Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling technicians will clean and check the home’s ventilation system thoroughly and search for any leaks that may cause more particles to collect in the airflow. Dryer vents may also be cleaned since they are infamous for accumulating lint, pet dander, and other contaminants. Cleaning these vents can have a positive effect on indoor air quality.
Cleaning or replacing the HVAC air filters is the easiest way to increase the air quality in the home. This step, on the other hand, is frequently overlooked by homeowners. Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling technicians will inspect all air filters and clean or repair them as required.
Mold and mildew develop when the air in the home becomes too warm, and discomfort of the skin, eyes, nose, and throat occurs when it becomes too dry. Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling offers whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers to assist with humidity control in the home. Humidifiers are mounted directly into the HVAC system and controlled by the thermostat, ensuring that humidity levels are maintained.
Air filters are designed to trap large particles inside the HVAC system before the air is released into the home. The regular air filter stage can be advanced by using dedicated air filters or purification systems. Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling will consult with homeowners to decide the best filtration system for their house. Filtration systems are available in a HEPA filter, a media air cleaner, or an electronic filter.
