How Indoor Air Quality Can Improve System Performance

August 27, 2012 6:02 am Published by

In today’s well-insulated homes, indoor air is often many times more polluted than the air outside. For people with asthma, respiratory difficulties or allergies, polluted indoor air can cause breathing difficulties. Without proper air distribution, indoor air can be thick with allergens like mold, mildew, bacteria, dust mites and pet dander. Improving the indoor air quality of your Longwood home with heat-ac-services provided by Service One AC isn’t just better for your family’s health but can actually improve the performance of your air conditioning system as well.

One of the goals of regular air conditioning service in Longwood from Service One AC is to optimize your cooling system’s energy efficiency. Our 18-point inspection process checks your air distribution system, including the ductwork, as well as your AC equipment to ensure that everything is working at peak efficiency. Leaky ductwork can allow up to 30 percent of conditioned air to be lost before it’s distributed throughout your Longwood home. Leaks, cracks and gaps in ducts can also allow to pollutants into your home, worsening indoor air pollution.

Because central cooling systems require a careful balance between delivered and returned air, experts recommend that duct sealing be performed by qualified HVAC technicians. Improperly sealing and insulating ducts can actually further damage the system.

Regular AC maintenance service from Service One AC also checks your cooling system’s air filter to ensure that it’s kept clean. A dirty filter not only adds to indoor air pollution but requires the AC system to have to work harder in order to keep your Longwood home comfortably cool. Our experts can recommend the best filter for your system and will make sure that it’s properly installed and maintained.

Regular maintenance is the most cost-effective way to improve your cooling system’s energy efficiency, saving you money on monthly energy bills. Routine inspections from Service One AC can also improve the indoor air quality of your home.
