Indoor air quality is crucial for maintaining a healthy and comfortable living space. Poor indoor air quality can lead to respiratory issues, allergies, and other health problems. Your AC system is critical in improving indoor air quality by removing pollutants and contaminants. This post will explore how to improve indoor air quality with your AC system with CirTech CVAC.
Replace Air Filters Regularly
One of the simplest ways to improve indoor air quality with your AC system is to replace your air filters regularly. Air filters trap pollutants and contaminants, preventing them from circulating in your home’s air. Over time, air filters can become clogged with dirt and debris, reducing their effectiveness and increasing the risk of indoor air pollution.
You should replace your air filters every three months. However, if you have pets or live in an area with high pollution, you may need to replace your air filters more frequently.
Use High-Quality Air Filters
In addition to replacing your air filters regularly, it’s also essential to use high-quality air filters. High-quality air filters can trap smaller particles and pollutants than standard air filters, improving indoor air quality and reducing the risk of respiratory issues and allergies.
A MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating of 8 or higher is preferred for air filters. These filters can capture pollen, dust mites, and pet dander, which can handle particles as small as 3 microns.
Install Air Purifiers
Another way to improve indoor air quality with your AC system is to install air purifiers. Air purifiers use advanced filtration systems to remove pollutants and contaminants from the air, improving indoor air quality and reducing the risk of respiratory issues and allergies.
Several air purifiers are available, including HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters, UV-C (Ultraviolet-C) light purifiers, and activated carbon filters.
Maintain Your AC System
Proper maintenance of your AC system is essential for improving indoor air quality. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning the coils and ductwork, can prevent the buildup of dirt and debris contributing to indoor air pollution. Additionally, regular maintenance can improve the efficiency of your AC system, reducing energy costs and improving air quality.
