Better Air Quality: Another Benefit of A/C Maintenance
We’ve talked many times on this blog about how annual A/C maintenance can save you money now (by improving efficiency and lowering your cooling bills) and later (by catching minor issues before they turn into costly air conditioning repairs) – all while keeping your family more comfortable.
But there is another benefit to air conditioning maintenance that we haven’t talked about as often, even though it’s at least as important as the return on investment for your equipment (or even more, if someone in your home suffers from asthma or allergies): routine, professional air conditioning service can actually improve indoor air quality in your home.
You might not know this, but the air inside in your home can be four to five times more polluted than the air outside your home. With all the time you spend indoors with the doors and windows closed during a typical New England summer, that’s a lot of exposure to some pretty nasty stuff.
So how do you use your A/C to improve air quality in your Central Massachusetts home? Here are two strategies:
A/C Air Quality Strategy 1: Take care of your existing equipment
Proper air conditioning maintenance, which includes professional A/C service along with important personal tasks like changing your air filters every month, can help keep cleaner indoor air flowing and humidity in check – especially when your central air conditioner is working in tandem with a whole house air purifier.
A/C Air Quality Strategy 2: Replace old A/Cs
Of course no amount of maintenance or filter changing will improve the performance of an air conditioner that is well past its prime: at some point, replacing your central air conditioner rather than repairing it or driving it into the ground becomes a smarter option.
When that comes, Needham Oil Complete will be there for you, with expert A/C installation of quality cooling equipment from Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems (our NATE-certified technicians are also Factory Authorized by Bryant, so you can rest easy knowing your equipment will be installed the right way).
The bottom line
Your air conditioner works hard to keep your family comfortable and healthy. But it will only continue to do that if you protect it with regular, professional care from experienced HVAC technicians.
You’ll get that care – and much more – when you become a Needham Oil Complete Heating and Cooling customer.
