Working from home has its challenges but dealing with a subpar HVAC system shouldn’t be one of them. A few changes can improve your home’s environment for the better. Keep reading for tips on what you can do to improve your system’s efficiency while you’re working hard in Chapel Hill, NC.
Change Your Air Filter
Your air filter protects you from harmful pollutants, such as dust, pet dander, and pollen, which interfere with indoor air quality. These pollutants could cause throat irritations, headaches, and watery eyes and trigger allergy symptoms.
When the filter gets clogged with pollutants, it can also impact how well your air conditioner runs. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends getting a new filter every couple of months, if not more, depending on the conditions of your home and how often you use the air conditioner.
Get an Air Purifier
An air filter can positively impact the quality of the air you’re breathing at home. While protecting you from pollutants like bacteria and dust, it can also help decrease unpleasant odors. Additionally, using an air filter may help those with specific medical conditions, such as asthma.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Your HVAC system may need a twice-a-year maintenance inspection to ensure it’s running properly. During the visit, our technicians can check for clogged filters, dirty coils, motor problems, and many other issues so your HVAC system is able to work at full capacity.
An HVAC maintenance visit helps keep your system running as it should. Major benefits include your home being at a comfortable temperature and a decrease in the likelihood your system will need repairs in the future as a result of unexpected problems.
