Indoor Air Quality and Air Conditioning Services for Greater Atlanta Homeowners
Air Conditioning Boosts Your Indoor Air Quality and Improves Your Health
Air conditioning keeps you cool and comfortable when the intense Georgia summer heat bears down on you. But that’s not all it does. A properly functioning AC system also boosts your indoor air quality too. If you have allergies, asthma, or other respiratory illnesses, your AC system helps protect you from possible influences that could bring these health conditions back or worsen them.
How AC systems reduce allergy and asthma symptoms
To get the maximum protection from respiratory illnesses, your air conditioning system should be equipped with an efficient air filter. It should have a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) of 8 or more.
Our techs make sure your air conditioning system takes advantage of filters with MERVs of at least 13 so you don’t have to worry about your air quality causing more respiratory illnesses. Talk with our techs to learn how often you should replace your air filter, given how much you use yours. In most cases, this should be a minimum of once per season, but it can be as frequently as monthly.
When you don’t replace your air filter frequently enough, it gets clogged. That reduces air flow, and efficiency. Then, you start circulating that dust, dirt, debris, pollen, allergens, and pet dander throughout your home.
One simple change extends the life of your air filters
The typical filter you see has 1-inch deep pleats. However, you can get filters with 4-5 inch deep pleats, which allows them to last much longer. If you have a filter cabinet that fits 1-inch pleats, it may be possible to install a new one that accommodates filters with 4-5 inch pleats.

Clean air ducts affect your indoor air quality too
A large part of your HVAC system’s impact on your health rests inside of your ductwork. A thin coat of dust on the inside of your ducts won’t cause big problems. However, if you see dust accumulating on your registers, then cleaning’s a must. Don’t use fans because they only stir up the dust and spread it throughout your home.
When working properly, air conditioning also reduces your home’s humidity. When you keep humidity below 50%, mold and dust mites aren’t able to thrive. However, when your ductwork’s not clean, that makes it harder for your AC to reduce the humidity in your home, and increases the risk of mold and dust mites.
