Proper air ventilation and circulation are imperative with regard to the indoor air quality inside your Cape Coral home. When left unaddressed, stagnant and unhealthy indoor air can lead to an increase in allergies, illness, and discomfort. You may also notice that low-quality indoor air doesn’t smell very fresh. In addition to providing a comfortable temperature throughout your home, your HVAC system can help you remove particulates and odors.
Why Does Indoor Air Quality Matter?
We spend a large majority of our time indoors. The air inside a home or building can be contaminated with all kinds of particulates and pollution, ranging from pollen and pet dander to smoke and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). As our exposure to these irritants continues, we may experience symptoms such as a runny or stuffy nose, itchy and red eyes, an increase in asthma attacks, and even trouble sleeping. Finding ways to improve indoor air quality is ideal for both our health and comfort.
How Can Your HVAC System Help?
Your HVAC system can help improve and maintain your indoor air quality in a number of ways. A filter is inside your system, and it’s designed to remove particulates from the air that is circulating around your indoor environment. These filters should be replaced every 30 to 90 days, depending on the specific type of filter you’re using. Not only does this improve your indoor air quality, but it also protects your HVAC equipment.
By circulating indoor air, an HVAC system can also remove contaminants and freshen the breathable atmosphere. Things like air purification units and UV lights can be installed on your HVAC equipment to enhance its effectiveness.
