Do you feel like dust and dirt just continue to accumulate no matter how often you clean your Mattoon, IL home? The bad news is that this build-up can also affect your HVAC equipment. It can be the cause of inefficient cooling, poor indoor air quality, and frequent AC repairs. The good news is that regular tune-ups can help.
Your system’s air filter is built to trap dust, dirt, and other contaminants that may otherwise harm your HVAC system. Failing to clean or change these filters often results in them becoming clogged. As a result, your system won’t be able to circulate air properly. This can lead to cold or hot spots around your home. We recommend changing your system’s air filters every 60 to 90 days or possibly more often if you have pets at home.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
As your HVAC unit battles to keep your home comfortable, the contaminants clogged in your air filter and ducts can be re-circulated into your indoor air. This will lead to poor indoor air quality and could harm your family’s health. If you have to clean your home more often than usual or start experiencing allergy-like symptoms when indoors, then contact an HVAC professional to take a look at your system. Regular tune-ups will improve your home’s air quality and keep your HVAC equipment working efficiently.
The longer dust and dirt continue to build-up within your system, the larger the problem will get. With time, contaminants can hinder many of your system’s components and cause unnecessary and sometimes costly repairs. Luckily, inefficient cooling, poor indoor air quality, and untimely repairs can often be prevented by scheduling regular tune-ups with trusted HVAC experts.
