Do You Have Clean Air in Your House?

nsplash

This seems like a simple question and your first instinct is to probably answer immediately yes. However, this question is more complicated than it looks at first glance, especially this time of year.

That’s because, with the blooming and blossoming of the plants and flowers of spring, there is a lot more stuff in the air than usual. Dust and pollen and other allergens swirl through the air in force this time of year.

If you are sensitive to allergies, you already know this because these particles in the air are making you reach for the tissues and allergy medications. However, even if you aren’t sensitive to allergies, dust and pollen can cause problems for you in your indoor air quality. The worst part is that you may not even realize the problem.

Understanding How Low Air Quality Can Make You Feel Sick

nsplashIf you have allergies, you understand the problems that dust and pollen in the air can have on you. In fact, if your system doesn’t get a break from the outdoor air with clean air in your home, you can actually see these symptoms getting worse.

For the very sensitive, skin conditions like rashes can even break out. However, not every symptom is so obvious. Even if you are free of allergies, you can feel the impact of low air quality in your home.

Similar to the symptoms of a minor cold, you may experience headaches, congestion, and fatigue as your body tries to fight off the increased dust and pollen levels. More noticeable, viruses and bacteria also circulate more easily in a house with poor air quality, spreading sickness more quickly.

Use an Air Filter to Clean Your Air

nsplashThankfully, this problem can be easily addressed by using an air filtration system. There are now plenty of options for filtration systems, including high tech options like UV sanitation to help keep your air clean.

No matter what system you use (even your existing HVAC system!), the biggest obstacle to clean air is proper maintenance. It’s always pretty shocking to see how many people neglect their air filters. If you are wondering how often you need to replace your air filter, it is dependent on how often you are using the home.

As an example, a vacation home needs its air filter replaced a lot less often than a primary residence. In addition, the more people and pets in your house, the more often your filter will need to be replaced. A professional from Comfort Air Engineering would be happy to do an analysis and let you know how often your air filter should be changed for maximum performance.

Did You Know Going Green Means Saving Money?

nsplashYou may think that this focus on changing air filters is all about the chance to make more money. On the contrary, making smart environmental decisions will actually help save you money.

In addition to improving your air quality and making you feel better, the maintenance of your air filtration system will actually make the system run more efficiently, saving money on your monthly bill.

In addition, properly maintaining your system reduces the wear and tear, avoiding the need for a major repair or replacement. There is a good chance this time of year that we have Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” stuck in our heads.

That’s because we spend a lot of time servicing overdue air filters and we get covered in dust. Stay on top of your air filtration maintenance to avoid all the extra dust in your home. If you have questions, please contact an expert at Comfort Air Engineering by calling (210) 494-1691.
