How Outside Air is Cleaner Than The Air In Your Home
Posted by Scott Mise | 08.15.2017
Nothing beats the comfort of taking a nap on your favorite couch, using YOUR private bathroom or stepping into your home and breathing in a big breath of fresh air. We take these little moments of serendipity for granted and don’t appreciate how nice it is to have a comfy couch, your own bathroom, or clean air in your home.
But what you might not know is hardly anyone has clean air in their home. Indoor air quality can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside of your home. Between having a pet roam around your home, all the cleaning supplies filled with toxic chemicals, and critters crawling around there are a lot of things that could be polluting your air.
Surprisingly, one of the last things you would suspect as a contributor to dirty air might be part of the problem: your air conditioner. The unit that keeps your summer days cool and winter nights warm, the appliance you depend on to keep your house as comfortable as possible might be failing you. An old, neglected, and faulty air conditioner unit can definitely decrease the quality of the air it is circulating through your house.
This doesn’t necessarily mean you need to replace your AC unit right away. AC units can be very expensive and there are many other contributors to the dirty air in your home that you can eliminate very simply. Increasing ventilation in your home, getting rid of excess carpet, and increased dusting are all simple solutions that can immediately help improve the air quality in your home.
But there is only so much you can do before you must face the fact that your air conditioning unit needs some repair. Airco specializes air conditioner repair in Austin, Texas and solving the problem at the source. Along with one-off repairs, AirCo AC repair service plans that keep your AC unit blowing clean air all year long. Constant care is better than sporadic care, and that’s what you get with a Airco maintenance plan.
