Improving Southern Florida & Orlando’s Air Quality
In the Florida heat, your air conditioning is one of the most important features of your home: it’s expected to perform at a high capacity on a daily basis. But did you know that there is more to your system than just cooling your home or business? It’s important that the air is being filtered properly, and is suitable for everyone to breathe on a daily basis.
The Importance of Quality Air
Humidity makes a prime habitat for impurities in the air. Things like dust, allergens, pollen, bacteria and other microscopic contaminants can exist outside the home, and an improperly maintained air conditioning system contributes to their harm indoors.
Here are the most important factors to your air quality:
While they can vary in price, filters also vary in quality; low-cost fiberglass filters only trap large matter, whereas high efficiency HEPA filters can catch just about anything. It’s important to determine which type your system is using and have them changed regularly.
Even the best filters can let in the occasional allergen or speck of dust. Once inside, air continues to circulate and these can build up. Purification acts as a second step and filters the air that is already within your home, and as such makes a good investment for large or high-capacity homes.
Ductwork runs through your entire house and can house pests, contaminants and dust. You should schedule a routine cleaning to make sure their contents don’t pass through your vents and into your home.
