Improve Indoor Air Quality with Regular HVAC Maintenance

Sep 24, 2017 | Uncategorized

People spend a great deal of time indoors, and there’s a long list of things that affect the air quality in your home. Overall air quality is important to your health and comfort. Maintaining a healthy air quality level decreases the mold, dust mites, pollen, and other airborne particles that reside in the air. However, there are a number of ways to improve air quality and provide a healthier indoor environment, and those steps begin with your HVAC system.

HVAC Service Life

You can expect a 15-year service life for most HVAC systems. Replacing the system every 10 to 15 years is a way to ensure your system is not only working as it should and contributing to healthy air quality levels, but also providing the latest in energy-saving technology. Older systems start to lose their efficiency.

Yearly Inspections

Most professional HVAC manufacturers recommend yearly inspections to ensure your system is performing in the way it was designed. An annual inspection should include cleaning and servicing your unit, which will detect any issues and increase its service life. Plus, it can prevent failures during peak heat or cold weather conditions. Dirty HVAC systems can actually create unhealthy air quality in your home due to mold in the duct lining or bacteria on the coils or filters.

Filter Changes

It may sound simple, and you may have heard it a thousand times, but changing out the filter for your HVAC system not only increases its service life, but cleans the air in your home. HVAC units draw air from the outside into the home, so the filter is an important tool in getting rid of particulates and allergens that can be triggers of such conditions as asthma. Clean filters also help control mold spores and dust particles.
