Poor indoor air quality can worsen asthma and allergy symptoms. It can also increase your energy expenses. With proper HVAC maintenance, you can improve indoor air quality. The entire system in your McKinney, Texas, home can be checked to ensure the air circulating inside of it does not contain allergens. Vents and registers can be checked and repaired to counteract costly energy expenses.
Aggravate Allergy and Asthma Symptoms
There are many allergens floating in the air, like pollen, dust, dirt, and pet dander. An HVAC unit that doesn’t properly filter and ventilate air will fail to remove these airborne allergens, which translates into worsened allergy and asthma symptoms. Installing an indoor air filtration system is an excellent way to combat indoor allergens. Some of today’s modern HVAC systems come with an air filtration system built directly into them, making it simple to improve indoor air quality.
Poor Overall Health Due to Indoor Air Quality
People with respiratory conditions will notice worsened symptoms when living inside a home with poor indoor air quality. Even without one of these conditions, it’s not uncommon to develop a cough, headache, fatigue, or watery eyes when residing in a home that doesn’t have an air filtration system. A professional HVAC contractor can inspect your home for indoor air contaminants and make recommendations on which type of air filtration system will work best in removing them.
High Energy Expenses
Poor indoor air quality leads to high energy expenses. The contaminants floating in the air will cause the HVAC unit’s air filters to clog quickly, which reduces the system’s ability to heat and cool the home efficiently. Some sources claim a dirty air filter can decrease a unit’s efficiency by as much as 15 percent.
