During the summer, it’s not always the heat coming in from outside that makes your home feel uncomfortable; the presence of moisture in your indoor air is also a factor as to why you experience that “sticky” feeling. This hot, muggy environment is a result of excessive humidity, and is a problem many homeowners face today.
The hot and humid conditions of the summer season can result in storms, especially those that involve strong winds and short yet heavy rainfall. With this in mind, it’s important to ensure that your HVAC system is prepared. There are steps you need to take to prevent a breakdown so you don’t get stuck without it after a storm.
Finding mold in the home is enough to send most people into a panic. If left unchecked, mold can cause eye irritation, adverse skin reactions and various respiratory illnesses. Prolonged exposure can lead to asthma flareups and other respiratory issues. If your HVAC system contains mold, act fast to reduce the risk of health issues.
Regular maintenance is essential in making any appliance last, and the same goes for your HVAC system. Without proper care your system will fail, which can lead to higher energy bills and poor indoor air quality.
