One question we get more than any other is how air conditioning and heating systems will affect the indoor air quality of our Tacoma, WA area customers’ homes. More often than not, the addition of heating and cooling systems to a home will have little direct impact on the presence of pollutants and debris in the air. But with the right additions, we can help you reduce those unwanted particles.
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) says that the minimum ventilation rate for homes is 62.2. You can find the ventilation rate of your home with this equation: Fan flow rate in cubic feet per minute = 0.01 (times) Floor area in square feet + 7.5 (Number of bedrooms; not less than one + 1) If you need help, or reach an answer below 62.2 please give us a call.
Indoor Air Quality Problems
In most regions, outdoor air quality isn’t a terribly big issue, so when people move indoors they don’t think about all the unwanted irritants that can build up when doors and windows are sealed during the winter and summer months. But, indoor air quality can be severely dampened by the presence of pollens from household or outdoor plants, dander from pets, as well as dirt and dust, not to mention potentially harmful mildew and mold.
And just because you cannot see them does not mean there are no airborne bacteria or viruses floating around in your home. Sound Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. strives to provide the utmost in comfort and safety to our customers. That’s why a good indoor air quality system is vital to protect you and your family.
Managing Indoor Air Quality
A number of different air filtration and purifying solutions can help you reduce the impact of pollutants in your home’s air. Different systems perform differently with each type of pollutant. For example, an effective air filter is good at removing natural particles like pet dander and pollen, while an air purifier may be better suited for removing gas and smoke. Other filters are specially crafted to kill bacteria and viruses using UV germicidal lights.
Beyond filtration and purification, don’t forget the value of regular maintenance and cleaning your air systems. Air conditioning and heating ducts are one of the most common sources of pollutants in a sealed home and this is something that can be avoided largely by keeping them clean. We provide annual cleanings and maintenance to check for leaks, vacuum out ducts, clean dirty AC coils, and generally ensure the safety and well-being of your family’s indoor air.
