Air conditioners can have a big impact on the comfort of your home or business. Obviously, their primary job is to keep your property at a comfortable temperature. But did you know that air conditioners can also affect other aspects of your indoor air quality, like humidity, allergens, and odors? By getting proper air conditioning service and repair in Fontana CA from ALLSTAR Air, you can enjoy improved indoor air quality with respect to:
As they cool, air conditioners naturally remove moisture from the air. This results in benefits for you and your property. With lower humidity levels, the air will feel more comfortable. Plus, you will avoid the risk of having excess moisture in the air condensing on cooled surfaces within the building, which can cause damage to items like wood furniture or floors. When using your air conditioner to remove humidity, your goal should be to get the humidity down below 55 percent. Remember that air conditioners are more successful at dehumidifying on lower speeds, because the slower air flows over the coils, the more moisture will be removed.
Using an air conditioner can also help filter out dust, pet dander, and other allergens from the air. Of course, in order to do this, you need to make sure your air conditioner’s filter is clean. A technician from ALLSTAR Air Conditioning & Heating will be happy to clean or replace your air filter as part of your air conditioning service and repair in Fontana CA. We recommend checking the filter regularly as the summer goes on to make sure it stays clean. A clogged filter will reduce the efficiency of your air conditioner by impeding the flow of cooled air through your ventilation system. If you are especially sensitive to allergens, ask one of our technicians about installing a more effective HEPA filter in your air conditioner to screen out smaller particles and make your home’s air even cleaner.
Air conditioners that are not properly maintained can develop mold, which will cause the air flowing into your home to have an unpleasant odor. If your air conditioner smells musty, you need to get air conditioning service and repair in Fontana CA. A technician from ALLSTAR Air can clean out your air conditioner’s drain lines to remove the mold and make sure that in the future, water will be able to drain properly from the unit. This should prevent the mold from returning.
If you are experiencing any problems with your indoor air quality this summer, don’t hesitate to get help from the experts at ALLSTAR Air Conditioning & Heating.
