Prevention Beats a Cure
Many people suffer from illnesses throughout the year, but it’s especially common during cold months. Often people casually attribute it to the weather, but you might be “catching” something from your home. Poor indoor air quality is amplified in colder months since we spend more time inside with our houses closed tightly to the outside. Some of the most common ailments include:
- Muscle aches
- Sinus infections
- Respiratory infections
Physicians treat ailments brought on by indoor air problems, but P.K. Wadsworth can often help prevent them by rooting out the cause. Some of the most common causes include:
- Dust and dust mites
- Pet dander
- Cleaning supplies
- Carbon monoxide
- Plumbing leaks
- Gases emitted from furnishings, carpets and building materials
- Lack of proper ventilation
Healthy Indoor Air Starts with HVAC Filters
Replacing the filters in your air conditioning and heating systems keeps your equipment working properly and efficiently, your energy bills low and your home’s air healthy. This is one maintenance activity that can have the biggest impact on your system’s performance. Your HVAC air filters serve two major purposes:
- They prevent dust buildup.
Dust and dirt particles can restrict airflow, which means systems have to work harder to compensate. This leads to higher utility bills and an overall decrease in each system’s effectiveness. If not addressed, dust buildup can cause premature failure of essential internal components—or the entire system itself.
- They remove harmful contaminants from the air.
Mold spores, bacteria, pollen, dust mites, pet dander and other allergens negatively affect indoor air quality by causing a wide range of ailments.
