The One Home Tip You Must Never Forge


The air quality in your home is very important for your family. Each day contaminants from outside are finding their way into your home, making it difficult for family members with respiratory issues especially. If your HVAC is not maintained properly, mold spores and other outdoor contaminants can be causing family members to suffer from allergic reactions or worse. Here are some of the reasons why you need to have your air handler maintained at least once a year.

What Does an Air Handler Do For My System?

The air handler is responsible for bringing in air from outside, treating it, then releasing it in your home. Within the air handler is an air filter that is designed to remove many of the particles from the air that can denigrate the quality of the air inside. As the air is pulled into the home, it passes through the air filters, and then clean air is pushed through the ducts and into the rooms of the house. As the filter gets clogged, two things happen. The system needs to work harder to push air through the filter, and more allergens and mold spores get through.

Can the Air Filter Improve Air Quality?

A clean air filter will certainly improve the air quality within the home. One of the things that you should consider is getting a new HEPA filter installed. These pleated filters trap even more of the outdoor contaminants in the filter, and allow more heated or cooled air through. The entire HVAC system does not have to work as hard, and the air quality inside the home is much improved. Family members will notice an immediate difference to the quality of the indoor air. Each time the system turns on, the filter works to remove more and more of those particulates from the air you breathe.

What Else Does the Air Filter Protect Me From?

If your home is located near a construction site, your air handler is pulling in polluted air all day long. Many home construction sites take years to complete, and all that time your home is being polluted from dirt, dust, and other pollutants. Your air handler is instrumental at containing all that contaminated air and providing your family a safer place to live. Your local HVAC professional can inspect, maintain, and replace any parts of the air handler efficiently so your home is protected throughout the year.
