The Importance of Air Quality

The Importance of Air Quality

The heat of the coming summer has a lot of us around Jacksonville already reaching for the thermostat to bring in some cooling reinforcements against the sweltering temperatures. While the comfort of a well-cooled home or office is a nice sanctuary against the summer (or late spring) heat, that comfort can disappear quickly if you or a loved one are susceptible to the angry inflammation, stuffy head and watery eyes associated with seasonal allergies.

Pollen is a byproduct of the natural beauty that surrounds us here in Northeast Florida. And while we wish no harm on any of the beautiful local flora, we could stand to have less pollen to sneeze through in our homes. Pollen enters the house attached to shoes and clothes, and through open doors and windows. Proper maintenance and regularly changing out of the filters in your AC system are easy ways to fight pollen in your home.

Dirty filters and dusty HVAC systems can lead to problems with excessive condensation as well. One of the issues that comes with the rising temperatures of summer is an increase in the humidity in the air. This can lead to mold and mildew infiltrating your system due to clogged lines and blocked filters. The importance of maintaining and monitoring your HVAC system cannot be expressed enough.

Pet dander can also trigger sneezing fits, and the increase in temperatures can lead to your pets shedding their coats. Loose pet hair and excess dander often accompany an increase in temperatures when the seasons change. Regular brushing and general grooming are not only good ways to keep your pet healthy and happy, they’re excellent methods of minimizing the impact that pet dander has on you and your loved ones.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, don’t hesitate to give us a call to set up a consultation on cleaning, maintaining or replacing your AC system today!
