A/C Energy Efficiency & Air Quality
It’s summer! School’s out! It’s time for barbecues and vacations and picnics! Oh, and it’s also hot – really, really hot! In San Antonio, it’s not uncommon for many of us to enjoy summer inside the house with the air conditioner on – and we don’t blame you! But with more and more people choosing to stay in the cool comfort of their home, air quality can become an issue.
Plenty of culprits are responsible for bad air quality, including pollen, mold, bacteria, pesticides, tobacco smoke, cleaning products and carbon monoxide. At Aramendia Plumbing, Heating & Air, we want to make sure the air you breathe inside your home stays clean.
Air Quality, Asthma and Allergies
Bad air quality can wreak havoc on people suffering from asthma, allergies and other respiratory issues. A shuttered and closed home and/or office may keep you nice and cool, but it can be a breeding ground for air contaminants. Eliminating these nasty contaminants will most likely reduce asthma and allergy symptoms, helping you and your family breathe easier, as well as improve overall health.
Clean Air Means Comfortable Temperatures
When the air in your home is clean, the temperature is easier to control, improving air conditioning efficiency and your overall comfort. Cleaner air quality can also keep dampness and mold at bay.
Are You Suffering From Sick Building Syndrome?
If the quality of air inside your home or office is compromised, it can lead to sick building syndrome. Sick building syndrome is when several people in a home or building, but there’s no apparent source. Some common signs of indoor air pollutions are upper respiratory congestion, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, coughing, sneezing and watery eyes.
Steps to Improve Air Quality
To improve indoor air quality, make sure your home or office is well-ventilated, use air cleaners, replace air conditioning filters regularly, and if you smoke, smoke outside.
