For most parts of the year, the air quality around Texico, NM, is at healthy levels. But there are months when fine particulate matter rises to unnoticeable yet unhealthy amounts. Here are four reasons to start caring about your IAQ and why it’s worth improving it:
Improve Your Health
The air you breathe circulates throughout your entire body. Bad air quality means that you’re also breathing in particulates, such as pet dander, allergen and dirt, that shouldn’t be inside the body. Over time, exposure to these particulates leads to health complications, including shortness of breath, coughing and asthma.
Improve Your HVAC Efficiency
Polluted indoor air forces your HVAC system to work harder to filter the dirt and debris from the air. Boost your indoor air quality with an air purifier and by cleaning your HVAC system’s ductwork and air filters. If you need help with either, a professional HVAC service technician can help. They ca conduct a comprehensive air quality check and on-site inspection of your home’s ductworks and air vents.
Lower Overall Costs
By improving your HVAC system’s efficiency, you also effectively maximize its lifespan and minimize the need for repairs and replacements in the long run. You also lower the system’s energy consumption and therefore your monthly utility bills. Better air quality reduces your hospital visits and healthcare costs, too.
Low Monetary and Time Investment
Finally, Improving your indoor air quality involves equipment and measures that aren’t difficult or expensive to implement. A top-of-the-line air purifier installs easily. For ductwork cleaning and air vent sealing, contact an HVAC service technician to perform the labor as it requires equipment, tools and experience to accurately complete.
