Why Indoor Air Quality is Important-For Your Home and Your Health

Poor indoor air quality is likely to cause problems in two areas: your health and your home. Poor indoor air quality can affect the longevity, performance, and operating costs of your heating and air conditioning units. It can also lead to more dust and germs in your home, as well as more asthma or allergy flare-ups. Two easy ways to help your indoor air quality improve are regular filter changes, and duct cleaning.

When air contains a high number of contaminants such as pollen, dust, animal dander, old spores, and smoke, it’s referred to as poor indoor air quality. This can be caused by an overworked or undermaintained HVAC or duct system. Your air ducts are a great place for these contaminants to build up, and when your heat or AC kicks on, it’s a breeze for them to travel throughout your home. These particles spread around, and even if you dust regularly, you’ll still see dust and dander accumulate fairly quickly. If asthma or allergies are a problem for you and a family member, these contaminants can also cause unwanted flare-ups. This problem can also shorten the lifetime of your filters, causing undue strain on your HVAC system and your wallet when you have to replace them more often.  Strain on your system makes heating and cooling costs go up, and can limit the lifetime of your system.

Air duct cleaning is designed specifically to solve this issue. When the buildup of contaminants is removed, it can restore your system to a like-new condition. With a clear duct system, allergies and asthma attacks are less likely to be triggered by your home’s air quality. With no dust or dander clogging up your system, it’s likely to live a longer life, and save you some money. Your home will be easier to clean and maintain.
