In Phoenix, summer can seem to drag on. You may be cooped up in your home because outdoor temperatures are close to unbearable. But that can affect your health if the air quality in our homes isn’t all that good. Poor indoor air quality can worsen allergies and asthma. Consider taking a few simple measures to correct that situation.
Opening your windows for at least 30 minutes each day is ideal for good air circulation. The best time to do this is the evening, when pollen levels, air pollution, heat and humidity are all at their lowest. This allows you to remove stale air from your home and replace it with fresher air.
Running an air-purification unit helps circulate the air in your home and replaces old air with new air that has fewer particulates such as dust, dander and mold spores. Units that have HEPA filters remove even the smallest particles, and there are models that do not require a filter but have a reusable collection plate that is electronically charged.
Changing your HVAC filter allows for proper air flow in your home. If you leave a filter in too long, and it becomes clogged, you will be pushing some of those particles back into your home and putting a strain on your heating and cooling equipment.
Routine maintenance can help to ensure that your HVAC system is working efficiently in a way that will help advance your air circulation. Contact Wolff Mechanical, Inc. for more information on the routine service. We’re happy to help you with all of your air-quality needs. Give us a call.
