Here are the troubleshooting tips you need to prevent indoor air quality issues this winter.
If your indoor air quality is sub-par, you could do some simple HVAC troubleshooting to solve the problem. Why? Because your heating system can have a direct impact on your air quality. Try these three troubleshooting tips from the experts that can have you breathing easier:
Tip #1: Check Your Air Filter
Your air filter is there to help catch particles that might damage your HVAC equipment. The bonus is that it also filters those same pollutants out of your indoor air. When your air filter is dirty or clogged, your heating system doesn’t work as well, and your indoor air won’t be as clean.
Tip #2: Check Your Service Schedule
Has your heating and cooling system been properly maintained? If not, that could be a reason your indoor air quality is not where it should be. Twice-yearly service will ensure your system is running as it should. It will maintain the moving parts, keep it clean, test and calibrate all of the systems, and make sure you don’t have any cracks in your ducts, any excess fuel or electrical use, or any issues with carbon monoxide leaking into your home.
Tip #3: Evaluate for an HVAC Upgrade
One of the best upgrade investments you can make for your HVAC is an air filtration system. A good one can filter out 99% of indoor airborne pollutants including dust, dust mites, pet dander, chemicals, smoke, mold, and mildew. Getting these contaminants out of your air is the best way to take care of your home and your health.
