Air quality is obviously a huge deal here in California. We take steps to, despite the weather conditions not helping, cut down on the amount of smog and ozone in the air outside. What about the air quality inside your home, though? Do you give it a second thought?
When you stop to think about it, your indoor air quality is just as, if not more important. We spend more time inside our home than we do outdoors. Here in California, a typical house can produce to 40 pounds of dust each day. And that same dust can be circulated through your air conditioning system five to seven times a day. This can obviously create big health problems for those who are most vulnerable to issues with their respiratory system or allergies.
Here at Lee’s Air, we offer different indoor air quality solutions for homeowners. Here are just a few.
Regular AC Tune-Up
One of the best things homeowners can do to improve the air quality in their home is to get a regular tune-up of their heating and air conditioning system. This keeps your system running at peak efficiency, and an AC tune-up also includes an air filter change. If you’re not in the habit of regularly changing your air filters, do so! It’s incredibly important in terms of trapping dust, allergens and particles in your home.
Air Duct Cleaning
Your air ducts are the lungs of your AC system. The problem for most homeowners is the ducts are up in the attic – meaning they’re out of sight and out of mind. Air ducts have potential to house mold, rodents, dust and debris. Lee’s Air technicians can inspect and thoroughly clean your air ducts, which will not only improve the quality of the air you breath but also increase your home’s energy savings! Dirty air ducts force your air conditioner to work harder to cool you home on these hot summer days.
