When you factor in all the hours that you sleep and enjoy your leisure, you might see that you spend quite a bit of your life inside your Chula Vista, CA home. That means the indoor air quality in your home impacts your health a lot. Here are five benefits of improved IAQ that can also improve your life.
1. Get Sick Less Often
When you have regular HVAC maintenance that includes improving your IAQ, you might get sick less frequently from seasonal illnesses. Proper ventilation keeps the spread of cold or flu viruses down when people sneeze or cough.
2. Keep Your HVAC System Cleaner
Improved indoor air quality doesn’t just make the air cleaner for people breathing it, as it keeps your HVAC system cleaner, too. This improves your system’s performance, so it lasts longer before it needs repairs or replacement.
3. Enjoy Freedom From Chronic Allergens and Contaminants
Indoor air pollution can be several orders worse than outdoor air pollution because it simply has nowhere to go. With enough exposure over time, you and members of your household might develop serious health issues that can include heart disease and cancer.
4. Save Money
Another benefit of IAQ for your HVAC system is that it will run more efficiently. That saves you money because your monthly utility bill won’t be as high.
5. Have an Easier Time Breathing
Great indoor air quality helps everyone in your home breathe easier because harmful particles are filtered out of the circulated air. That can minimize or even prevent shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing that result from such irritations.
Improving the indoor air quality in your home obviously has benefits, and spring is a great season to have professionals take steps that accomplish that. Contact us at West Coast Heating, Air Conditioning and Solar for our indoor air quality services.
