This spring, get ready to invite in glowing sunshine and sprouting plants, but be sure the dust bunnies stay out! When you add HVAC maintenance to your spring cleaning plans, you also improve your indoor air quality (IAQ).
Your air quality can affect the health of you and your family. Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning wants to help you tame those dust bunnies before they cause problems to your Meridian home. Here, we’ll discuss how and why you should boost your IAQ.
How Can Poor Indoor Air Quality Affect My Home?
Poor IAQ can come from many different sources. The main cause is indoor air contaminants in your heating and cooling system. Some of these contaminants include:
- Dust or dirt
- Pet dander
- Mold or mildew
When these contaminants form and stick to your unit, they create health risks in your home. These health risks may be similar to allergy symptoms such as runny nose, scratchy throat and watery eyes. Don’t let these symptoms lead to worse conditions – schedule an appointment with our team to eliminate these contaminants before they start to form.
What Are Some Indoor Air Quality Solutions?
You can easily improve your IAQ with routine cleaning and maintenance for your heating and cooling unit. Your air filter will catch many airborne contaminants, and you should replace it every 2-3 months. Our technicians can change out your air filter for you and provide IAQ solutions so you can breathe clean, refreshing air again.
If your home has problems with moisture, you could have mold and mildew buildup in your home. Specialists can take care of this issue, but you can also combat the humidity with dehumidifiers. Dehumidifiers and air purifiers will help clear out the moisture in your home. You can get stand-alone or whole-home installed units to combat the humidity.
Ask the professionals on our team about IAQ solutions during your next HVAC maintenance visit.
How Can I Get IAQ Testing?
If you don’t know the status of your home’s indoor air quality, you can get your home tested by our specialists. We check for any buildup or growth in your ducts or system. This includes taking humidity readings in case you have mold and mildew growth.
For contaminants that are harder to detect, we take air samples and test them for particulates. This will let you know if you have dangerous substances like carbon monoxide or asbestos in your air. These pollutants can be very hazardous, so it’s important to get your space tested as soon as possible. A standard IAQ test will take 1-2 hours to conduct. You can expect fast, comprehensive results with a professional IAQ test from our team.
