Better Air Quality: Another Perk of Routine Air Conditioning Maintenance
We’ve talked many times on this blog about the benefits of preventative air conditioning maintenance – how an annual A/C tune-up can save you now (by lowering your cooling bills) and later (by catching minor issues before they turn into costly air conditioning repairs), all while keeping your family more comfortable.
But one of the most important benefits of caring for your air conditioner is not as easy to see – though it can be easy to feel (especially if you’re an allergy sufferer).
One of the most important benefits to routine air conditioning comes from the impact that proper cooling equipment service can have on your indoor air quality.
You might not know this, but the air inside in your home can be four to five times more polluted than the air outside your home. With that kind of exposure to allergens and other pollutants, you’re much more likely to get sick – or just feel lousy – during the summer months.
Proper air conditioning maintenance – which includes professional A/C service along with smaller personal tasks, such as swapping your air filters every month and cleaning air vent gratings – helps keep your indoor air flowing and humidity in check. When combined with installing whole house indoor air quality equipment such as an air cleaner, humidifier, dehumidifier or UV light, this maintenance will make a noticeable difference in you health and well-being at home.
