With homeowners all across the country trying to manage the dirt, dust and allergens kicked up by recent high winds, it is not surprising that HVAC professionals are getting more calls than ever for air conditioning service. Unfortunately, these high winds have left many HVAC systems vulnerable to the dirt and debris, which can be extremely damaging to the internal components of your heating and cooling equipment. As key components are forced to work through the grit and debris that has infiltrated your cooling system, problems can occur resulting in breakdowns that require expensive repairs and possibly the need for equipment replacement.
One of the best ways to handle the damaging effects that these high winds have brought is to ensure your HVAC equipment is properly cleaned and maintained by a professional HVAC technician. Your heating and cooling technician will be able to clean your air conditioner, filter and even internal components in order to ensure it is operating at its peak of efficiency and performance.
In addition to providing maintenance designed to protect your equipment, a professional HVAC technician will also be able to address indoor air quality issues. With the winds causing problems with dirt, dust, pollen and other allergens, there is no doubt that home air quality also suffers. Not only will these airborne irritants get into your home’s heating and cooling systems, but they find their way into the air your family breathes. Unfortunately, these irritants can cause health problems for your family, especially when mold, pollen and other allergens are circulating through your home’s ductwork.
While professional maintenance and HVAC vent cleaning can certainly help prevent problems with your air conditioning system, it is also important to have indoor air quality tested. Cleaning or changing HVAC filters will definitely help keep contaminants from circulating through the air in your home, but there are also other home air quality solutions that can help protect your family from harmful substances, such as an air filtration system. When you want to ensure your family and HVAC equipment are protected from problems caused by high winds, be sure to contact your HVAC professional for HVAC vent cleaning and AC maintenance.
