Humans are creatures of habit. We become desensitized to most things very easily. That trait can become an issue when we stop noticing stale air in our homes. A musty smell is only a small part of the problem. If you do not have effective air flow throughout your property, allergens and pollutants can lead to poor health.
Think about what HVAC actually means. Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning all work together to control the direction and quality of air flow in your home. The design and orientation of a property also play a role. That means maintenance of your HVAC system, insulation, windows and doors impacts air quality.
Take a minute to consider if the air quality in your home is at an acceptable standard. If not, it is time to have your HVAC system serviced. A window and door inspection is also important to ensure there are no drafts or other issues that will impact the efficiency of your HVAC system.
Allergens & Pollutants
You can’t see allergens and pollutants, but they are everywhere. Effective HVAC is especially important if you live near a busy road, industrial area or allergen-producing flora. Allergies can become severe and cause breathing difficulties for many sufferers. However, the hidden dangers of pollutants are also a major concern.
You and your family are at risk of developing long-term lung problems including asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, reduced breathing capacity and loss of lung function. Some pollutants can even cause cancer. Improving the air quality and flow in your home can help to reduce pollutants in your home and improve health.
