Having a bit of trouble with your allergies, lately? While the great outdoors offer plenty of triggering irritants, it may be your indoor air that poses the greatest danger. Recent studies show that your home’s indoor air quality may be much worse than anything you’ll find outdoors. If you or your loved ones suffer from asthma or allergies, it’s a good idea to perform cooling maintenance to reduce indoor allergens.
Relieving Indoor Allergies with Cooling Maintenance
As your cooling system gathers, conditions and circulates indoor air, it’s also picking up a vast array of airborne pollutants ranging from dust and pet dander to more dangerous particles like spores and bacteria. The vast majority of these airborne pollutants are caught via filtration efforts, a poorly maintained cooling system can allow these irritants to circulate and spread throughout your home, making asthma and allergy symptoms worse.
A well-kept cooling system is not just one that offers exceptional home comfort, but it also offers asthmatics and allergy sufferers the chance to literally breathe easier. Through annual service by an experienced and certified HVAC contractor, you can improve your home’s indoor air quality and keep its occupants in better health. When your contractor performs cooling maintenance to reduce indoor allergens, you’ll also get the added benefit of a stronger and more energy-efficient cooling system.
Cooling Maintenance Tasks
It’s a good idea to have your contractor perform cooling maintenance to reduce indoor allergens at least once a year. During the service, your contractor will likely do the following to improve both air quality and efficiency:
- Change or clean air filters as recommended
- Conduct air balancing to ensure proper performance and operation
- Inspect, clean and seal ductwork as needed
- Clean the evaporator coil to remove debris and spores
