Cold weather has had many people curled up in their homes recently. That means no opening the windows for fresh air; you’re forced to breathe the air in your home, and if it’s not of good quality, that can cause all sorts of problems. You don’t have to let the air quality in your home remain as is; you can improve it.
Start by cleaning your HVAC vents. All the air in your system moves through these, and so when they’re dirty, they spread those allergens in the air. All you need is a good duster to trap those particles and keep them from blowing around your home.
Duct cleaning is just as important. It’s hard to clean your ducts of dust and debris on your own, however, so hire a professional to do it. The worst places where allergens and dust collect are often the places you can’t see and reach, but a professional HVAC technician knows how to get there. That person has equipment to clear your ducts of dust.
Changing filters is something you should do regularly all year long. Too many people ignore this task, however, and it’s even more important during winter when you’re spending more time inside, breathing that air. All that dust, hair, and other particles collects in those filters quickly, affecting the air quality.
You can also invest in a new filtration system for your home. At Total Comfort Cooling & Heating, LLC, we can help you with the air quality of your home. Call us today at (478) 781-9107 for HVAC services in Macon, GA.
