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 with poor air quality for 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.
Many sources can contribute to poor indoor air quality.
Identifying Causes Of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Numerous sources 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 and 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.
