2 Things to Do This Summer to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Tuesday, July 07, 2015
Air Filter

Looking for ways to breathe easier and improve your indoor air quality?

When the heat of summer is upon us, it’s great to retreat to the indoors where it’s cool, but is your indoor air quality affecting your summer fun? Most of us don’t consider the quality of our indoor air; as long as it’s the right temperature, we’re generally pretty happy. But the truth is that our indoor air can be just as bad, if not worse than outdoor air. Here are 2 things you can do this summer to improve the indoor air quality in your home:

#1 Control Moisture

Moisture plus warm summer air equals mold and bacteria. One of the easiest ways to reduce the chances of getting mold and bacteria build-up in your home is to control the moisture. You can tell if you have too much humidity in your home by looking around your windows and doors for condensation, checking for mold growth in corners, on ceilings, and in the basement, and by using your nose to see if there is any sign of that telltale mildew odor.

The southern climate is typically very humid in the summer so it’s something we all battle, but adding a dehumidifier to your HVAC system can help control the interior humidity levels. This can make your home more comfortable but also improve the air quality.

#2 Clean Your Air Filter

Replacing your air filter regularly is one of the easiest ways to control your air quality. The filter is responsible for trapping and holding dust particles and other pollutants that travel through your HVAC system. The filter keeps them from recirculating throughout your house. A dirty filter is ineffective at catching those air pollutants. Changing the filter regularly will keep your HVAC system working optimally and your air quality where it should be.

Keeping your home cool and comfortable during the summer is important, and you can make sure you’re protecting your air quality at the same time with a few simple tricks.

My gas package system died on me this past February. I contacted All City Heat and Air for an estimate. The dispatcher was very nice and promptly scheduled an estimate the same day. The installation crew that came out (the next day after I had received the estimate!) was extremely polite and made sure to thoroughly clean up after they were finished.

I am glad that I stuck with this company (my friend had referred me since she had some work done by both Jeff and Ernie) because I feel that I would have been paying a lot more for a lot less with any of the other companies.

Jeff came out after the install was complete and took the time to answer my questions about operating the new thermostat and how to change my air filters, as well as giving me information on how to maintain my unit. Overall, it was an excellent experience. I would recommend to anyone!
