How Does Your Air Conditioning System Affect Indoor Air Quality
Posted on August 9th, 2017
When your doors and windows are sealed on hot summer days, you want to make sure that you are breathing in clean air that isn’t full of spores, allergens, and bacteria. After all, your indoor air quality plays a big role in your family’s health and well-being. That’s why it’s so important that you take good care of your home’s cooling system, so that you are circulating clean air throughout your home.
What Role Does Your A/C System Play in Indoor Air Quality?
- It Circulates Air Throughout Your Home – Your air conditioning system is responsible for circulating air throughout your home — so you want to make sure that the air is clean! This will help ensure that you are not circulating air full of allergens throughout your home.
- It Keeps Humidity in Check – After a hot shower, or after spending a few hours cooking dinner for the family, the humidity inside of your home can rise. If the humidity is too high and the air is not properly ventilated, your home may be at risk of mold growth. Your air conditioning system will filter out excess humidity and keep your home a comfortable temperature.
- It Filters Out Dirt and Dust – The air filters in your A/C system are there to filter out dirt, dust and other particles as the air circulates through the ducts in your home. That’s why it’s so important that you check your filters once a month to ensure that they are clean — and that air can circulate freely through the system.
