As a homeowner, you’ve got a lot on your plate during the summer. The heat and humidity have a way of disrupting even the best-laid plans. But have you thought about your indoor air quality recently? We’re not talking about the number on the dial of your thermostat, but the combination of relative humidity and the presence of airborne contaminants and pollutants. If not, here are 3 steps that you can take right now to breathe better air inside your home.
Have your AC tuned up
One of the most important improvements to your overall home comfort can be made by calling for a professional AC tune-up. Why? Simply put, because we run our air conditioners for so much of the year here in Macclenny, a drop in performance and efficiency can cause numerous other problems besides those related to temperature. For example, if your system is dirty, then it won’t have the ability to dehumidify the air properly, which can result in stuffy air.
Eliminate irritating contaminants and pollutants
The modern home is built for energy efficiency, rather than natural ventilation. While that’s great for keeping the bills low, it’s not so great for having clean air circulating throughout your household. Over time, every home will accumulate dust, dander, dirt, bacteria, and other contaminants, and that can lead to various problems, particularly if you or a loved one has allergies. By installing a whole-house air purifier, you can remove such problems.
Clean your air ducts
If you’ve never had your ducts tested or inspected, then you may want to do so before too long. Even a relatively small layer of dust can lead to a significant increase in energy bills, not to mention the fact that this debris can circulate around the home when you run your air conditioner. A professional duct cleaning service is a cost-effective way to eliminate this issue.
