I often get asked how important it is to have a central air conditioning system cleaned and checked regularly, and is it really needed, so I thought I would share a story from earlier this week.
Everyone seems to generally know and accept that our indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air… but unfortunately this general knowledge has yet to spur significant, proactive action on the part of homeowners. We’re not in the habit of being alarmists, but when something is as serious and widespread as the effects of poor indoor air on children, we’re going to do everything in our power to get people thinking about the air they and their families breathe.
With the approach of winter most of us start to button up the house and, hopefully, in most cases, start to think about their heating system. Maybe you’re going to change your air filter or possibly get a professional tune up of your system.
There are many reasons to do these things. First of all, it will help your system run optimally and efficiently. Secondly, it will help to preserve the unit’s lifespan and reduce maintenance costs. And lastly, help remove the bad stuff from the air we breathe in our homes.
