Homeowners and business owners frequently consider their HVAC systems; if they are functioning properly, when to replace the filter, and how to adhere to a maintenance schedule. These are important to keep in mind, but one aspect that is frequently overlooked is INDOOR AIR QUALITY. The air we breathe should be pure, unpolluted, and devoid of airborne contaminants. Most customers are unaware of the contaminants that lurk in their HVAC systems and the air circulating throughout their homes, according to our research. Brevard Cooling and Heating has a combined experience of over three decades and provides the finest HVAC and air quality services in Brevard County.
How is the Quality of the Air in Your Home? gree ac
Did you know that your home’s central cooling and heating system circulates approximately one million cubic feet of air per day? Even with all that airflow, the system creates the ideal breeding ground for bacteria, viruses, biological growth, dirt, and dust accumulation, among other contaminants. In fact, dirt, dust, and microorganisms in your HVAC system can shorten the life of your equipment and cause your utility bills to rise unnecessarily. When the air conditioning system is not cleaned regularly or the correct air filter is not used, the airflow will decrease, causing the system to work harder for the same result. Without adequate filtration and routine maintenance, biological growth has nowhere to go (besides into your lungs, bloodstream, and respiratory system). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hypothesizes that indoor air quality can be two to five times lower than outdoor air quality. This is not good for the residents, especially those who suffer from a variety of illnesses:
•Asthma •COPD •Respiratory Conditions •Allergies •Seasonal Allergies •Auto-Immune Conditions •Immunocompromised Individuals
What can I do to improve the quality of the air inside my home?
In addition to routine maintenance, we recommend air filtration and a UVC lamp with a high output. Brevard Cooling and Heating’s high-output lamps are the most potent residential UVC lights available on the market. Our lights boast the highest kill rates and sterilization available. A fantastic addition to your defense against the Coronavirus and COVID-19, as well as other viruses and bacteria. In addition to UVC lights, we offer and highly recommend Polarized Media Air Cleaners, which can remove submicron-sized particles that are invisible to the naked eye. Time-Release Drain Pan treatments are yet another excellent product for enhancing the air quality of your home. The condensate drip pan in your HVAC system collects the moisture removed by the indoor cooling coils. This stagnant water becomes slimy and fosters the growth of bacteria and other organisms. The accumulation of growth and slime can cause water to overflow, resulting in expensive water damage and unpleasant odors. Similar to tablets, time release drain pan treatments are placed directly in the drain pan, between the coil and drain opening, and block the water’s path to the drain. Maintaining a drain pan free of slime, odor, and growth will extend the life of your system and guarantee that you and your family are breathing clean air. gree ac
