How Is Your North Georgia Indoor Air Quality? We Can Make It Better

Published on: March 8, 2012

If you or a family member suffers from frequent sneezing, a hoarse cough, breathing difficulty, itchy skin, watery eyes or a runny nose, it could be due to the quality of air inside your North Georgia home. To find out what is causing the respiratory distress in your household, contact a North Georgia air conditioning company to request an indoor air quality evaluation. When you have your indoor air quality assessed by a professional, he or she will be able to pinpoint the exact causes of air quality issues and let you know what you can do about them.

Your air conditioning unit may be contributing to the problem due to the growth of mold inside of it. Air conditioners take in a great deal of moisture, and the condensation created can lead to a problem with mold. Other common causes of poor indoor air quality in your North Georgia home include mold and bacteria in your ductwork, blocked heating and cooling vents and poor overall ventilation. Homes in North Georgia today can have almost as much pollution inside of them as the outdoor air. This is due to using common household cleaners, odors from cooking, pet odors, smoking and more.

An air conditioning technician from a North Georgia air conditioning and heating company will provide you with a detailed list of his or her findings and recommendations at the conclusion of your appointment. Some solutions that may be offered to you include cleaning your heating and air filters regularly, investing in an air purifier or dehumidifier or upgrading to a more energy efficient air conditioning system. The service technician can discuss the benefits of each change and how it would lead directly to an improvement in the quality of air breathed in by you and your family.
