Breathe Easy: How Your AC System Can Improve Indoor Air Quality

McKinney’s Unique Challenge: Trapped Pollutants

McKinney’s dry climate can be a double-edged sword. While it may offer relief from humidity, it also allows pollutants to linger in your home. Tightly sealed houses further trap these contaminants, creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew within your ductwork.

Invisible Threats, Real Consequences

Poor indoor air quality often goes unnoticed, but the health effects can be significant. Allergies, respiratory problems, and even fatigue can be linked to breathing in these pollutants.

Your AC System: A Silent Defender

The good news is, your AC system acts as your first line of defense against indoor air pollution. Here’s how:

  • Air Filters: Your AC’s air filter traps dust, pet dander, and other large particles before they circulate throughout your home. Regular filter changes are crucial for maintaining this protection.
  • Humidity Control: A balanced humidity level helps prevent the growth of mold and mildew, which thrive in damp environments. Your AC system can help regulate humidity by removing excess moisture from the air.

Beyond the Basics: Advanced Air Quality Solutions

While your AC plays a key role, there are additional steps you can take for a truly healthy indoor environment:

  • Air Purification Systems: Essential Home Performance offers a variety of air purification systems, such as HEPA filters, UV light purifiers, and activated carbon filters, to target specific pollutants. Our technicians can assess your unique needs and recommend the most effective solution.
  • Humidifiers/Dehumidifiers: Depending on the season and your home’s specific needs, a humidifier or dehumidifier can help maintain a comfortable and healthy balance of moisture in the air.
