With the new spring season just a few weeks away, there’s no doubt we’re all looking forward to experiencing increasingly warmer days. At Hutchinson, a leading air conditioning and heater repair company that serves Burlington County, NJ, and the surrounding areas, we would like to offer some advice to homeowners for maintaining good indoor air quality during the final winter days and the approaching spring season.
First, How Do You Know If You Have Poor Air Quality?
If your home has poor indoor air quality, this may trigger coughing, a sore throat, chest tightness, watery or itchy eyes, shortness of breath, nose bleeds, and may even cause full-blown asthma attacks. If you live in a home with poor air quality, you may experience frequent headaches, long-lasting colds, and bronchitis.
Easy Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Keep the Windows Closed
No matter how nice it is outside, allergy sufferers are still encouraged to use AC rather than opening the windows for home cooling. Air conditioning delivers fresh, clean air to your home, and open windows can allow millions of allergens and particles to make their way inside.
Replace Air Filters
Using a clean, high-quality filter rated for allergen filtration will help clean the air as it cycles. Air filters are excellent at combating allergens and particles from polluting the air in your home. If you haven’t changed your filters in over a month, this can allow all that dust collected on the filter to circulate through your home.
Don’t Postpone Spring Cleaning
Spring cleaning is a chore we all typically put off, but it’s vital for better indoor air quality. By dusting your home and washing sheets and furniture covers, you’ll remove excess dust that can allow spring allergies to take over your home.
Schedule Air Conditioner/Heating Maintenance
Our skilled technicians will make sure that all dust, mildew, mold, and debris are cleared from your HVAC system, so they don’t harm your home’s air quality this spring.
