Improve Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality with a New AC Install
When it comes to the health and safety of you and your family, the air you breathe while at home may not exactly be the first thing that comes to mind. The thing is, poor indoor air quality (IAQ) is a real problem with real consequences, and it affects Cincinnati homeowners of all walks of life. In some cases, IAQ issues can stem from a single source, and your air AC system may actually be the culprit.
How AC Units Affect Indoor Air Quality
Cincinnati is not exactly known for being cool throughout the summer, and many residents rely on their air conditioners to get them through to fall. If your AC hasn’t been maintained in a long time or is old to begin with, however, it may well be affecting the quality of the air you breathe. Over time, dust, dirt, mold and other contaminants can build up within your home’s ductwork, which your AC can then direct to each room in the house.
Naturally, this is not the type of air you want your family to be breathing, and sometimes it can even cause noticeable symptoms that make it extra clear you have a problem on your hands.
Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
It’s not always possible to tell whether or not the air quality within your home is problematic. If left to get worse, however, you or members of your family may end up experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:
- Sore Throat
- Watery Eyes
- Sinus Congestion
If these or other strange symptoms occur and seem to only happen when you’re at home, you know you have a problem on your hands that needs fixing. Depending on the source of the problem, upgrading to a new air conditioner may be the best course of action.
