As we’ve discussed before, your home’s HVAC system acts like its lungs, and if those lungs are plagued with contaminants, allergenic particles, dirt, and dust, then it’s possible that same material can affect your health.
Keeping a well-maintained HVAC system is the best way to prevent an overall negative effect on your home environment.
Change Your Air Filters.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that even a single exposure to air pollutants can cause ear, nose and throat irritation as well as “headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.”
A majority of homeowners HVAC-related issues (including poor indoor air quality) could be prevented with this step. Remember to change your filters this season, and every month afterward.
Install A Programmable Thermostat.
Every home should have a programmable thermostat. They help you save money by using less energy to cool or heat the house while it's empty.
Clear the Exterior Unit.
Your HVAC unit needs a little TLC every few months, and the start of spring is the perfect time to start. Remove any leaves, branches, or shrubbery blocking the unit and hose it down to clean any dust or debris.
