Long Island Residential Indoor Air Quality

There is no doubt, controlling environmental air quality is out of your control. What is in your control is the air quality inside your home. When some people think of an HVAC system, they only consider heating and cooling. While these are two capabilities of an HVAC unit, they are just the beginning. Controlling the contaminates in the air trapped in your home might be as simple as running an HVAC system. Of course, it is never this easy, but the HVAC system is a great starting point. In the meantime, there are other things you can do to improve the quality of air inside your home.

Install A New HVAC System In Your Home

If your home does not have an HVAC system, temperature control is extremely difficult. HVAC systems are designed to help the occupants control the temperature of every room in the house. Unlike a fireplace or window air conditioner, an HVAC unit delivers cold or hot hair throughout the entire home.

The system utilizes technology that extracts heat from outdoor ambient air. The extracted heat is transferred to the freon or refrigerant coolant. The compressor compresses the freon, resulting in a significant temperature increase. The freon is transferred to the air handler unit inside the home and over the heated coolant, resulting in an increase in temperatures. The temperature will depend on the thermostat setting.

What Can Be Found In Indoor Air?

Air consists of two very important gases – oxygen and nitrogen. Carbon dioxide, argon, and other gases can also be found in the air. While some of the gases that make up air are necessary for human, animal, and plant life, they can collect and trap harmful contaminants. Lead, dust, fungal spores, and bacteria are just a few examples.

An HVAC system has a filtration system that collects and traps contaminants to keep them out of your lungs. Replacing the HVAC’s air filter monthly will help control the air quality inside your home.

Install An Air Purifier In Your Home

An HVAC filtration system is not always enough to maintain good indoor air quality. With the environment filled with contaminants, it is getting more difficult to control indoor air quality. Combining your HVAC filtration system with a quality air purifier will do wonders for the air you breathe inside your home. Air purifiers are available in varying sizes and designs. A small standalone unit should reduce air contaminants in a small room like a nursery. Large air purifiers are more suitable for several rooms or an entire home.

Air purifiers and HVAC filtration systems minimize allergens like mold and pollen spores in the air. Both systems will improve your life in more ways than one.

HVAC Maintenance Improves Indoor Air Quality

Your home can have a state-of-the-art HVAC system and still have poor air quality. How is this possible? Like most small and large appliances, the HVAC system becomes less efficient daily.

Side Effects Of Poor Indoor Air Quality

As mentioned above, controlling the outdoor air quality is a global initiative, not just one person like yourself. Controlling the air quality in your home is a different story. You and you alone can maintain good air quality in every room of your house, apartment, condominium, flat, duplex, townhome, or cabin.

Long-term exposure to poor air quality will result in respiratory conditions like asthma and allergies. Poor air quality will eventually take its toll on your lungs, trachea, bronchi, pharynx, and larynx make up your respiratory system. These vital organs are responsible for inhaling air from the environment and transferring oxygen to the bloodstream. When your lungs can no longer keep up with your body’s respiratory needs, you will experience shortness of breath and other systems.

The side effects of poor air quality are not all physical ailments. Poor air quality will also impact your HVAC system by making it work harder and longer just to keep up. The result of an inefficiently operating HVAC system is an unexpected malfunction and increased energy bills. With inflation at its highest in decades, a slight increase in your energy bill will leave your wallet completely empty.
