How's your indoor air quality? If you're like most people, you have no idea. Maybe you have health issues and you just aren't quite sure why. The truth is, the indoor air in most homes is not up to par. This often happens because we have our houses climate controlled and we keep the windows closed tight to maintain the temperature. There's nothing wrong with that, as long as you take steps to improve your air quality. You can do just that with some simple upgrades to your air conditioning.
Invest in a Dehumidifier
Humid air is a constant in the south, but you can do something to combat it inside the house. A dehumidifier can bring down the relative humidity levels in your home and have a big impact on your air quality. Humidity is a haven for allergens such as mold, mildew and dust mites. A dehumidifier is an easy upgrade to your AC and can cut down on these allergens and more. That can really make you feel better during allergy season.
Consider an Air Filtration System
A dehumidifier can do a lot to cut down on the allergens that thrive in humid air, but you can go a step further and add an air filtration system to your air conditioning system. Some allergens that lurk in the air are too small for the air filter in your air conditioner to pick up. This is where an air filtration upgrade comes in. They can pick up particles as small as smoke, bacteria and other allergens that can cause health issues and make you feel less than optimal during the summer months.
Don't take your health for granted by ignoring the air in your home. For more information on how you can have a positive impact on your indoor air quality, contact the team at Helms Heating and Air Conditioning.
