Indoor Air Quality for Melbourne, Rockledge, Palm Bay and Surrounding Areas
One often overlooked element of your HVAC system is the V. The V stands for ventilation and it does a big job and shouldn’t be overlooked. Ventilators not only circulate the air but they also act as air purifiers and humidifiers. When your ventilator isn’t working properly, it will negatively impact your indoor air quality. If your house feels stuffy or everyone is often sick, you should call Coastal Climate Experts so we can check the indoor air quality of your home.
The Importance of Good Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is essential for good health. As Americans, we spend so much time indoors, that we’re constantly exposed to indoor pollutants that trigger allergic reactions, even in people who don’t have allergies. Some of these reactions include itchy and burning eyes, headaches, tiredness and more.
When you have a good HVAC system with clean air filters, your air won’t have as many pollutants. Your system also helps keep the air at a comfortable moisture level for our airways. When any of these systems aren’t functioning together, you may end up sick or at the very least uncomfortable.
How Coastal Climate Experts Can Help
During our semi-annual HVAC system maintenance, we check to make sure that your air filters are clean. If you have an air purifier, we’ll check that it is operating properly. We’ll also clean it so it can operate at its highest efficiency. Should we find an issue, we’ll advise you as to the repair necessary to keep your IAQ high. We know that too much moisture in the air contributes to bacterial growth while too little can be a breeding ground for viruses, neither of which are good for your health.
