Can Changing HVAC Filters Improve Indoor Air Quality?

Your home’s air quality will have quite a big impact on your family’s health, and your HVAC system is one of the biggest contributing factors when it comes to IAQ (Indoor Air Quality). Anyone that has recently begun to notice unusual respiratory issues should take a closer look at how their HVAC system’s filters could be affecting their health and well-being.

Understanding Airborne Contaminants

Airborne contaminants range from minor irritants brought in by your pets to unsafe toxins from nearby construction. It is impossible to maintain a home that is completely free of contaminants, but there are some simple steps that can be taken to drastically reduce the amount of unsafe particles throughout your house. This includes changing your HVAC system’s filters at least once every 30 to 60 days.

Signs Your Filters Need to Be Changed

Unfortunately, many families forget to change their HVAC filters for months or even years at a time. Changing filters once every month might seem like one more pesky chore around the house, but it could actually have quite a big impact on your health and comfort. Clogged filters can result in a number of issues such as runny noses, dry eyes and sore throats. A house that is flooded with irritants and contaminants will often produce side effects that are similar to seasonal allergies or the flu.

Other Ways Your HVAC System Can Affect Your IAQ

Changing out these filters is a great way to improve your IAQ, but your HVAC system should be regularly checked to see if there are any other issues that must be addressed. Air duct cleaning is another preventive maintenance option for those that are struggling with respiratory problems. Ducts that are not properly installed or maintained will quickly begin to collect dust, dander and even mold. This will put a strain on your system’s filters and increase the amount contaminants that find their way into your home.
