How Poor Indoor Air Quality from Your Air Conditioning System Could Harm Your Health

The quality of the indoor air within your home is something that you want to place a great deal of attention on.  The reason is not just so that you can say that you have clean air, there is a great deal of impact that the air quality can have on your health.  Poor indoor air quality has proven time and time again to be something that can truly be detrimental to you, the health of your family, your pets, or anyone else that spends time in your residence.  How do you battle this though with your air conditioning Ponte Vedra FL system?  This is where we come in at J&W Heating and Air.


So what are the impacts that poor indoor air quality can have on your health?  According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air quality can be far more toxic to you and your family than outdoor air quality.  This is because it is that much more of a dense environment where the air is just sitting on. When you have poor indoor air quality, you are going to be breathing it in and out all day, every day, with really no escape.


Short-Term Issues

In the short-term, what researchers have found is that poor indoor air quality can lead to a slew of issues that just crop up out of the blue.  This includes things such as having irritated and/or dry skin, eyes, respiratory issues, scratchy throats, and so on.  It has also been found that when you have poor indoor air quality you are more likely to experience fatigue and/or dizziness.  


Some of the other symptoms and health issues include being irritable, having headaches, being more forgetful, as well as developing fevers.  Your air conditioning Ponte Vedra FL system should be helping you fight the negative air quality, but if it is not, that is when we at J&W Heating and Air can step in to help.


Diagnoses for Children

Children are also known to be more likely to develop things such as allergies, autism, as well as other health issues when they are exposed to indoor air pollutants over the short and the long-term.  All it takes is excessive dust, second-hand smoke in the air, PVC flooring, among others to really do a damage to the air quality.


Children are especially susceptible, as are pets, due to the fact that there lungs are much smaller.  When you have polluted air that is being breathed in and out and you have such small lungs to hold the air, more of those pollutants are making their way in.


Correcting the Problem

You want your air conditioning Ponte Vedra FL to be working in your favor to correct the problem of poor indoor air quality.  When your air quality is not up to par, you may want to consider a new HVAC system or potentially having the system that you have looked over in-depth.  When we can do things such as give your system a tune-up, change the filter, clean the air ducts, and so on it can really go a long way to helping get that air quality back on track in no time at all.


Air quality is something that you always want to give credence to.  When you have sound indoor air quality it is going to mean that your family can breathe easy and not have to worry about the negative effects associated with poor air.  We at J&W Heating and Air can work with you to help keep your air quality as perfect as can be.

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
