Proper air conditioning maintenance can keep your air, and your nose, clear.
Air conditioning maintenance is important if you are worried about the air quality in your home. Poor air quality can directly affect your health in several ways and one of the best indicators is your nose!
Your nose and sinuses can give you a literal "heads up" when the air quality in your home becomes compromised by dust and contaminants. Three of the most common signs that affect your upper respiratory tract are:
- An increase in the number of colds you experience each year
- An increase in the severity of existing allergies to dust, mold, and pollen
- Sinus pressure and pain
Your home's air conditioning unit circulates the air in your home on a continual basis. When properly maintained, dust and contaminants, such as mold and pollen, are filtered out. If your air conditioning unit is not serviced or the filters aren't changed regularly, air quality begins to suffer and you can begin to experience an increase in upper respiratory problems. For people who forget to service their heating and cooling units, the most common reminder is a case of the sniffles that just won't go away.
Proper air conditioning maintenance, as well as having your duct work checked every 2 to 5 years, can reduce the severity of cold and allergy symptoms that often plague homeowners. Call 803.772.4490 for 24/7 service.
