Quality air has the potential to revolutionize how you, your family and even your pets feel. If your air conditioning and heating systems emit air that is polluted with dust, allergens, dirt and other muck, you will undoubtedly suffer the consequences as time progresses. It might not happen right away. Sometimes it takes weeks, months or even years for unsavory particles to buildup in your HVAC equipment or air ducts. You can prevent such a problem by being proactive with regular HVAC maintenance. A simple phone call to our experienced heating and cooling professionals really can prevent illness or transform the well-being of someone who is saddled with sickness.
Signs of Low Quality Air
Most people have no idea that they are being exposed to low quality air until they suffer a health consequence. One of the telltale signs of an indoor air quality issue is illness. If you or any of your family members experience sickness while at home, there might be an issue with your HVAC system that prevents you from breathing in high quality air. This is especially true of individuals who feel fine in environments away from home.
Any sign of mold or a considerable buildup of dirt/dust by your home’s HVAC equipment is an indication that your air quality has been compromised. Furthermore, if you notice that the warm and cool air created by your HVAC equipment fails to circulate through the home, you should reach out to one of our HVAC experts for assistance.
Another red flag is odorous air. Your HVAC systems should not generate air that smells odd. Do not assume that such an odor is just a side effect of the air conditioner or furnace’s aging process. On the contrary, smelly air is a clue that your system requires maintenance, a repair or possibly even a replacement.
The Importance of High Quality Indoor Air
Can you imagine suffering an extended illness that affects your ability to work or spend meaningful time with your family simply because you failed to update or repair your HVAC system? Such a nightmare scenario happens more often than most people think.
Becoming sick or suffering an allergic reaction is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to indoor air issues. Those who are exposed to low quality air emitted by HVAC equipment can experience prolonged illness, asthma, heart disease, respiratory issues or worse. This is precisely why so many homeowners are making the decision to upgrade to a state of the art HVAC system. The cost of new machinery is absolutely worth the money, considering the possible consequences of exposure to dirty air.
