Air conditioning Improves Indoor Air Quality in PA

Air Conditioning improves air quality in Kittanning

Air conditioning is for staying cool and dry on very hot and muggy days. It can also be a godsend to allergy and asthma sufferers on bad air days, such as when ozone and pollen counts are high, and windows should be kept closed.

Reduce Allergy and Asthma Symptoms with the best Air Conditioning System

If you rely on air conditioning to reduce allergy and asthma symptoms, be sure your system is equipped with an efficient filter, such as one with a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating of 8 or more. As your trusted air conditioning contractor, we will first make sure your air conditioning unit can handle using a high-efficiency filter, such as one with a MERV of 13. If the blower is not powerful enough, you may end up restricting the system's air flow, reducing the system's efficiency, and possibly overworking and damaging the condenser. Also, be sure to replace your filter frequently so as to strengthen its efficiency.

A clogged air filter decreases your system's efficiency because it restricts air flow. In general, filters with 4- to 5-in. deep pleats last longer than standard 1-in. deep filters, which may need to be changed as frequently as every month. You may be able to retrofit a deeper filter cabinet to your ductwork, but check an HVAC contractor first.

Contact us today to evaluate your home's air conditioning system to ensure its efficiency and that it is the best option for your home. We service New Castle, Cranberry, Beaver Falls, Kittanning, Butler, Slippery Rock, New Brighton, Ellwood City, Beaver, and all nearby locations.

Clean Air Ducts Make a Difference

In addition, be sure that HVAC air ducts are clean. A thin coating of dust on the inside of duct walls may not pose an air quality problem but accumulations of dust at supply registers are a sign the ducts need cleaning. Avoid the use of fans because they stir up dust and associated allergens.

As a bonus, air conditioning reduces excessive humidity, a condition that fosters the growth of other allergens, such as mold and dust mites. The recommendation is to keep the humidity in your home below 50 percent.
