It’s summertime, it’s hot, and the air in your home should feel cool and refreshing, but for some reason you think it could be better. You see some dust gathering but think that’s odd, because you recently cleaned. You decide to investigate but aren’t sure where to start.
Don’t forget the obvious-if it’s nice outside, then open your windows. Let some fresh air in and let the contaminants out. To create good cross ventilation open doors and windows.
When is the last time you changed the air filter in your home? If it has been a few months, or you haven’t changed it since the winter time, then it is time to put in a new one. Don’t buy a cheap air filter. By using a good quality filter, you are allowing good air to pass through. When you don’t change your filter, you risk not only a reduced air quality but also possible damage to your HVAC unit.
You’ve changed your air filter, but still want better air quality. Consider getting your vents cleaned. You can eliminate dust and debris by having this done. If you have allergies, this might help relieve some of the symptoms.
Before getting your vents cleaned, make sure you have someone inspect the ductwork. You might need to have the ducts repaired or replaced instead of just cleaned. If you have holes, not only are you wasting money cooling other parts of the house, but you are allowing dust, debris, and allergens in. One way to fix your duct problem and breathe better quality air is to seal your ducts. Aeroseal can fix the problem, and you will be breathing healthier air and saving money.
Ambient Heating and Air offers Aeroseal, and it also qualifies for Ygrene financing because it is energy efficient. So, start breathing easier with less dust and more money in your pocket.
