After a long winter spent indoors, the first breath of that fresh spring air can rejuvenate the mind, body, and soul. It’s what can make you feel like yourself again. But on the inside of your home, it can be another story. Your West Chicago, IL heating & air may be filled with air contaminants that make it difficult for anyone in your household to catch a good breath, especially allergy and asthma sufferers.
With temperatures outdoors back on the rise, you need to know what can jeopardize your level of comfort this spring with regards to your indoor air. The team at Precision has an invested interest in the well-being of your family this season, and we certainly don’t want to see you take any chances with your indoor air putting them at risk. We offer several indoor air solutions to remedy any problem, as well as any heating & cooling installation to keep your home comfortable.
What Can Negatively Impact Your Heating & Air?
Over the course of the spring, be on the lookout for any of these common problems:
- Excess Humidity: That summertime humidity is lurking around the corner. You may not feel it so much now, but it will enter your home some way or another. Higher levels of humidity can give rise to mold, which can lead to breathing and respiratory problems. Precision can install a dehumidifier in your home to keep humidity levels healthy and make your home that much more comfortable.
- Carbon Monoxide: Carbon monoxide is deadly yet odorless gas that can be spread through poorly maintained HVAC systems. It’s scary to think that carbon monoxide can enter your home without you even realizing it, which makes it all the more important to invest in a carbon monoxide detector from Precision.
- Biological Pollutants: Mold, dust mites, and animal dander—oh my! It sometimes can be the biological pollutants that can wreak the most havoc on your indoor air. Regular dusting and sweeping should eliminate them or prevent them from coming into your home. A little spring cleaning in this case can help a lot.
- Musty Odors: Having clean air in your home is certainly one thing, but having clean air that also smells pleasant is another. When humidity brings too much moisture to your home, that smell of clean, fresh air may be no more and in its place is a musty odor that can distract from your home’s atmosphere.
