Spring is just around the corner, which means allergy season will soon be here. Airborne allergens and dirty air ducts can pose health risks to your household. In addition to improving your indoor air quality, maintaining your HVAC system can also increase your home’s energy efficiency, reduce electric bills and prevent costly repairs.
Your heater and air conditioner draw in outdoor air that can contain dirt, dust, pollen, mold and other harmful particles. When regularly replaced, the air filters are usually able to catch these contaminants. If you don’t change filters at least once every three months, though, the inside of your HVAC system will become dirty.
Having pets at home means frequently running your vacuum cleaner to clean up fur and dander. However, you also need to be mindful of your HVAC system when you have furry friends.
Have you been experiencing unusual occurrences at home lately, such as strange noises and the sudden slamming of doors? Restless spirits aren’t always to blame in instances such as these. Rather, your home likely has cold spots or drafts.
