Did you know an HVAC system does more than just regulate the temperature in your home or business? You can actually use an HVAC system to improve indoor air quality. Here’s how:
- Invest In Quality HVAC Filters
There are a variety of sizes of HVAC filters and the one you chose can determine the quality of air in your home. For example, one-inch filters may only catch large particulates that are harmful to your air quality but let other harmful particulates pass through. However, larger filters can catch particulates that are less than half a micron in size. Regardless of the size of HVAC filter you choose, you will want to change your filter regularly as well, to ensure your HVAC system is optimally filtering out harmful particulates.
- Circulate More Air
When an HVAC system is running, it circulates air around your home which helps blow out stale muggy air and bring in fresh, clean, and cool air. However, you can also change the settings on many HVAC systems to run the blower motor and fan even when the AC is off. If you would like to install a HVAC system that can circulate air regardless of if the air conditioner is running, or are unsure if your current HVAC system has this option, Gilman Cooling and Heating can help. Reach out to our professional technicians to learn more about consistently running your HVAC blower to circulate air and improve air quality in your home.
