There is a lot of talk on clean indoor air improvements. In some places of the country, analysis shows that the outside air is up to three times better than the quality of air found in your homes and businesses. Though some may not really notice a difference, those with asthma issues, chronic allergies, or weakened respiratory problems are the first to benefit from improving the indoor air quality. Today, we at Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning would like to relate the benefits of improving the indoor quality in your Greater Las Vegas, Nevada home or business.
Benefits of Clean Indoor Air in Your Home Environment
1) Healthier air. For those that suffer from allergies, mild to severe, improving the indoor quality can help you find relief. Beginning the improvement on indoor air quality, one of the best things you can do is a routine air filter replacement or cleaning and consider investing in high-end filters that do more than basics. Pet dander, fur, hair, dirt, bacteria, germs, dust, pollen, and contaminants caught in the air filter’s weaving can be triggering your allergy symptoms. Not only do allergy sufferers benefit, but so do those with asthma, which can be influenced by the air filter’s buildup as well. Filter’s can be easily removed and discarded with all the trapped pollutants retained within. Air filters that become overly compacted with the contaminants of bacteria, mold spores, dust, pet dander, and other such debris will cause poor air circulation, allergies, and more frequent asthma attacks. Remember to change the filter once a month to contribute to improve the indoor air quality as well your health.
2) HVAC Efficiency. Not only do the filters get clogged and bring down the air quality, but it can also labor the appliances and HVAC system. Inefficient HVAC systems due to clogged filters and poor air quality will increase energy costs. Additionally, the appliances will work harder than necessary, putting excessive wear and tear on the parts, resulting in the need of repairs or even replacement. Air ducts get obstructed with filth is another factor bringing down the indoor air quality.
3) Energy costs. Clean air filters keep the HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently. As mentioned before, clogged filters and compacted air ducts prohibit the system from operating at peak performance. When the system works over time it means energy cost is rising.
Air Duct Cleaning Improves Indoor Air Quality
By monthly filter cleaning and every three years having air ducts cleaned, you can dramatically improve the indoor air quality of your home or business. Depending on your system and preferred filters, the average filter needs to be cleaned or replaced a minimum of once a month, or every three months at most check manufacturer’s directions for surety. Residents with multiple occupants in the home, fluffy pets, smokers, or if the windows and/or doors are opened a lot, and those with respiratory issues, should do all they can to improve the indoor air quality in the home.
