How To Improve Air Quality In Your Home And Office

The average American spends anywhere from 90 to 93% of their life indoors. Understanding the importance of controlling the air quality in your home or office can reduce health risks, associated to poor air quality, to you and your family. At J&W Heating and Air, we have decades of consolidated experience helping homeowners and businesses, in Florida, with the quality of the air circulating in their homes and offices.

There are many sources that can contribute to poor indoor air quality.

Identifying Causes Of Poor Indoor Air Quality

There are numerous sources that can contribute to, and elevate the level of pollutants in your home or office:

  • Fuel-burning combustion appliances
  • Deteriorated asbestos-containing insulation
  • Newly installed flooring, upholstery, or carpet
  • Pressed wood products, such as furniture or countertops
  • Household cleaning products
  • Excess moisture
  • Outdoor sources such as pesticides
  • Inadequate ventilation
  • Central heating, cooling systems, and humidification devices

The efficiency of your central heating and cooling systems will often determine the quality of air in your home or office.

Why Regular Maintenance of Your AC Unit Is Important

Air handling systems, using fans and ductwork, work to continuously remove indoor air and distribute filtered and conditioned (cooled) outdoor air throughout your home or office. These cooling systems require regular maintenance in order to keep operating at maximum efficiency. 

Regular maintenance will not only assure the quality of the air, in your home, it will also extend your AC unit’s lifespan. 

There are a number of things that can go wrong if your AC unit has not been serviced in years, the worst-case scenario being your AC unit breaking down when you need it most. At J&W Heating and Air, we run a 24/7 Emergency AC Repair Service for a good reason. 

When your AC unit is running overtime, during those extremely hot weather spells we’re all familiar with in Florida, you run the risk of your AC unit abandoning you when you need it most.

If you have not had your AC unit serviced in several years, there is a risk that the air quality in your home or office may be compromised. 

5 Signs Your AC Unit Needs Maintenance

Moisture around your AC unit, strange smells or sounds, can all be signs that your AC unit isn’t running efficiently. If your AC unit is not producing a suitable amount of cool air or if the air isn’t circulating properly throughout your home, have your AC unit checked, to resolve the problem and avoid more costly repairs or replacements in the future. 

  1. Restricted Airflow
  2. Moisture 
  3. Strange Sounds
  4. Unusual Smells
  5. Inflated energy bills

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
