The Impact HVAC Units Have On Indoor Air Quality

HVAC units determine the indoor air quality when your heating, ventilation, and air conditioner is running. With people spending more time indoors now than ever. It is important to understand the impact of your HVAC system and the air you breathe.

Below we will explore some tips on how to increase indoor air quality with ease.

Air Filters

If your air filters are old or full of dust it will affect the quality of the indoor air.

Air filters are designed to trap dust and particles and remove them from the air that gets circulated in your home.

If the air filters in your HVAC unit are not replaced regularly the indoor air quality of the area your HVAC unit is treating will be poor.

Humidity Control Systems

Hot and moist air is transferred into the evaporation coils. Failure to do so can see the promotion of bacteria growth from the moisture. 

Resulting in mold growing throughout your home.

When mold and bacteria starts to grow within your home the air can become dangerous to breathe.

Humidity controls play a major role in indoor air quality.

The optimal levels for summer is around 40-50%.
