If your air conditioner is not working during the summer season, then you’ll probably notice the problem right away. Same with your heater in the summer. A heater blowing cool air is obviously going to lead to problems in your home and with your comfort. What about your indoor air quality, though? Is it as high as it should be? Do you do anything to keep it at a high level? Have you even really considered it much?
If not, then now is the time. It sounds surprising, but the fact is that the air quality in your home may well be lower than the air quality outside! This makes sense. Sure, there is air pollution outside. However, the air outside is not trapped indoors, being recirculated through your HVAC system over and over. While opening up your windows on nice days will help to refresh the air in your home, it typically won’t have a huge effect on boosting air quality.
What Kinds of Problems Are We Talking About?
We obviously prioritize keeping home comfort systems in great working condition. After all, you can’t live comfortably if those systems are not operating at peak performance levels. However, HVAC services in Lakewood really need to include IAQ services if you want to live in the most comfortable environment possible in your home. Low air quality can have serious implications for your comfort, but it can also really have a negative effect on your overall health. Problems associated with poor indoor air quality include:
- Aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms.
- Mold growth.
- Mildew odors.
- Stale, dry air.
- Very humid air.
- Excessive dust and dirt settling on surfaces.
- Increased instances of static shock.
- Splitting wooden fixtures and furniture.

- and a whole lot more!
