According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), poor indoor air quality ranks among the top 5 environmental risks to public health. Furthermore, studies show that indoor air can be up to 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Since most people spend about 90% of their time indoors, it is important to maintain a clean and fresh indoor air supply to protect your health.
- Have Your Air Conditioner Maintained Once a Year
Your air conditioner keeps the air in your home cool, fresh, and dry. If it breaks down, or the filter becomes clogged, it will be unable to maintain the quality of your indoor air, putting you at risk for serious health problems. As a rule, you should have your air conditioning system inspected and maintained annually in the spring. This will prepare it for summer months when you rely on it to keep your home cool and comfortable. Our team will inspect the components, repair necessary parts, lubricate moving parts, change the air filter, and ensure the entire system is functioning at peak capacity. This can improve the quality of your home’s air supply.
- Have Your Home’s Ductwork Inspected & Cleaned
The ductwork is a system of pipes that transports air from your air conditioner throughout your home. The pipes run through the walls and ceilings to send air to individual rooms. Over time, these ducts can become clogged, dirty, or cracked, allowing air to escape and letting in pollutants from outside. In order to improve the quality of your indoor air supply, you should have your duct system inspected, cleaned, and sealed if necessary. This will also help you save money each month on your energy bills by reducing wasted air.
The Importance of Protecting Your Indoor Air Supply
Poor indoor air quality can cause a variety of health problems, including:
- Respiratory infections
- Lung cancer
- Pulmonary disorders
Pollutants such as dust, bacteria, chemical fumes, viruses, cigarette smoke, and pollen from outside can put you and your family at risk for developing health problems. In order to keep these harmful particles out, you should have your HVAC system inspected annually, and have your duct system maintained. This will help ensure your home is properly sealed against these outdoor contaminants.
