We live in Westlake, OH, with hot and muggy summers and freezing cold winters. That places a lot of emphasis on temperature control in your home, and to be sure, air conditioners and heaters are vital parts of your household. Whether you use a filter, a UV germicidal light, a humidifier, or dehumidifier, an air filtration system is a useful and even important addition to your home. If you don’t have one, you should consult with a trained technician about the best option for you, then arrange for an installation session.
“How do air filtration system help my home?” you ask. The answers are simple.
Indoor air quality needs to be at a certain level in order for you to feel comfortable. High humidity can make you feel clammy and gross, while low humidity leaves your skin dry and itchy and your sinuses irritated. Dust and other contaminants can cause you to wheeze, and bacteria and germs in your air can foster illness. Air filtration systems can address those problems, helping your air feel fresher and improving the health and well-being of your family.
Low indoor air quality can have an adverse effect on your air conditioning and heating system. The most direct problem is dust and contaminants, which get circulated through your system and can end up coating key components in your AC unit or heater. That increases the strain on the system, forcing it to use more energy and raising your monthly bills in the process. It also raises the chances of a major breakdown in the future. The same thing can be said about high humidity, which air conditioners can address in a limited fashion, but which increases wear and tear on them in the process.
Not all air filtration systems are the same, and a good technician can help find the right one for you. Call Westland Heating and Air Conditioning today!
