Keep Your Indoor Air Quality in Mind This Spring and Summer

Monday, April 22nd, 2019



When the real heat of the summer season sets in, your concern may be placed first and foremost on temperature control. We get it.

Maintaining Great Air Quality While Using Your Air Conditioning

Monday, August 12th, 2013

Air conditioning in Wake Forest is a necessity, with our hot, muggy summers. But while its primary job is keeping the air in your home cool and comfortable, an air conditioner also plays a role in maintaining indoor air quality. The way you approach your air conditioning system can help determine whether it improves your air quality or damages it.

Maintaining great air quality while using your air conditioner usually means a proper maintenance schedule. The air filter in your air conditioner is intended to trap dust and other particles before they get into the system. It effectiveness is reduced if it isn’t changed or cleaned regularly: reducing the air flow in your home and possibly increasing the amount of particles in the air to boot. Similarly, dust and debris can build up in the internal workings of the air conditioning unit itself. Regular maintenance and cleaning will keep them in hand, improving your indoor air quality. Left unattended, however, they will start to impact the clean air in your household.

In addition, more significant problems with your air conditioning can negatively influence overall air quality. For example, most AC units contain a condensate pan and drain line, designed to catch condensation from the coils. If the line gets clogged or the pan can’t drain properly, the water levels will remain stagnant: resulting in smells and mild contaminants seeping into your house.  As with the dust build-up, you can combat this by scheduling regular maintenance from a trained technician. They can spot the problem before it becomes a major concern and correct it with a little cleaning and TLC.

In addition to aiding your air quality, regular maintenance can help stop big problems when they’re still small, as well as extending the life of your air conditioning system as a whole. In Wake Forest and throughout the greater Raleigh area, you can count on Raleigh Heating & Air to meet those needs.
