Indoor air quality (IAQ) is an important issue in homes, but it is often overlooked. Poor ventilation, dust accumulation, and bacteria growth can all contribute to lower indoor air quality. But just opening a window isn’t enough – allergens from the outside can find their way in too.
If you are dealing with allergies or respiratory issues caused by poor indoor air quality, then we have a few upgrades you should consider that can help combat this problem.
HVAC System tune-ups
First and foremost, set yourself up for success by scheduling regular maintenance for your air conditioning system with Lindstrom Air. This will ensure that your system is running efficiently and is free of dirt and debris that can circulate throughout your home. Not only are regular tune-ups better for your indoor air quality but a well-maintained system also results in lower energy costs for you! Thank us later.
Brand-new cooling and heating system
Investing in a brand-new cooling and heating system can help improve indoor air quality (IAQ) significantly. A new system is more energy-efficient which helps to reduce allergens, dust, and other pollutants that can be released into the home without proper filtration. Additionally, a new HVAC system also offers better climate control with precise temperature regulation to maintain optimal comfort levels within your residence. With less wear and tear on a pristine system, you will also experience fewer breakdowns or malfunctions that can result in further air contamination over time.
An air purification system
If you want to keep your indoor air as clean as possible, then installing an air purifier is a great way to do just that. Air purifiers work by trapping airborne particles such as dust, pollen, and other allergens in their filtration systems. You can also find models that come with ultraviolet lights which help kill bacteria and viruses in the air. Installing an air purifier is one of the best investments you can make when it comes to improving your home’s indoor air quality.
Air Duct Cleaning
If you haven’t had an HVAC professional come out and inspect all your ductwork recently, then now may be a good time to schedule an appointment with Lindstrom Air Conditioning & Plumbing for a thorough cleaning of all those hard-to-reach places where dust and debris can accumulate over time. Professional duct cleaning services not only remove any built-up dirt and dust, but they also help protect against future buildups which could affect the efficiency of your system over time – saving you money on energy bills down the line!
Replace your Air Filters
Consider this a friendly reminder to clean your air filter on a regular basis. Clogged air filters reduce airflow and impede your air conditioner’s performance, which causes it to work harder than it should, leading to higher energy bills and reduced efficiency in cooling your home. In addition, dirty filters allow allergens, bacteria, and other irritants to enter the air in your home. Replacing your filter every month will help reduce airborne particles and help keep you breathing easy this summer.
