The air quality inside your home has a direct effect on your physical and mental health, more than most people may realize. Hawk Plumbing offers a full range of heating, plumbing, and air conditioning services to help you keep your home as healthy and comfortable as possible, but we want Fort Worth residents to know a few tips for keeping air quality at optimal levels beyond an air conditioning system repair.
CHECK YOUR FILTERS
Your homes heating system likely uses replaceable filters of some kind. Be sure to check these filters regularly and replace them as necessary. You may find that some filters are more expensive but offer better filtration. Ultimately, you need to find filters that offer a reliable level of air filtration at a reasonable price. Investing in air quality in your home is never a bad decision, so springing for top-quality filters is a wise choice.
The air flow in your home may be allowing particles like dust, allergens, pollen, and pet dander to recirculate. Your windows play an important role in the air quality of your property so take time to ensure your home has proper air flow. Opening windows during nice weather and using fans instead of an air conditioning unit can not only cost much less to keep your home cool, but also improve the overall air quality. However, opening windows also means potentially allowing more particles to enter the home. Your air filtration system may need to work harder, so consider the air quality and particle density of the air in your area before leaving windows open for too
UPGRADE YOUR AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM
If you have an old or outdated air conditioning system, it may be working much harder than it should to keep your home at a reasonable temperature. Your defunct air conditioning may also be failing to filter out harmful particles from the air in your home. An overhaul of your home’s air conditioning system may be an expensive investment, but it is well worth it in the long run as it will mean better air quality and less energy consumption since it can function more efficiently.
