Humidity affects your home’s air quality because moisture causes mold to grow throughout the air conditioning system. Indoor air quality includes controlling humidity as well as keeping the air clean and free of bacteria. In addition, mold is unhealthy to breathe and damaging to a home’s structure when left untreated.
Aqua Plumbing & Air in Sarasota, FL offers plumbing, heating, and air conditioner services. We have the air quality solutions for improving the indoor air quality in your home.
Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Dehumidifiers are a great way to control moisture and reduce mold from growing inside the system and ductwork. Whole house and room dehumidifiers improve indoor air quality and they have pros and cons.
Your air conditioning system may not have a dehumidifier but you can have one retrofitted. One of the biggest advantages for this type of system is that it controls and regulates the moisture levels throughout your home. Sensors and dampers installed in the ducts work together to maintain preprogrammed moisture levels. Before your next scheduled air conditioner service, ask about installing a whole-house dehumidifier.
Although an individual dehumidifier costs less, it cannot control or regulate the moisture levels. One of the drawbacks is its size because it is effective in one room or area at a time. If you need to dehumidify larger areas in your home, you have to buy additional units. The units do not have the technology of whole-house dehumidifiers.
Ventilation systems are also a way to control your home’s indoor air quality. The systems continuously clean indoor air several times an hour, so there is little chance that toxic mold and harmful viruses will spread throughout your home. As an added benefit, the ventilation system removes the stale and stuffy air and replaces it with fresh air through strategically placed exhaust fans.
AC Repairs and Mold
During the humid months of summer, mold and bacteria multiply within a short period. With preventative maintenance and indoor air quality solutions such as ventilation systems and dehumidifiers, you will reduce the cost of air conditioner repairs.
The addition of a preventative maintenance program will give you peace of mind without worry, and your air conditioning system is not as susceptible to mold, mildew, and microbial bacteria. You will have the peace of mind that your system receives the proper maintenance, and you do not have to remember air conditioner service schedules. Ultimately, air quality improves, allergy symptoms decrease, and sufferers from respiratory conditions get relief. The right air conditioner service and preventative maintenance program saves you money and energy.
