How Your IAQ and Your AC Work Together

The quality of air in your home is something of a “partner” to your AC system in the effort to keep you comfortable. What we mean by this is that the better your air quality indoors the better your AC will work. That makes it easy to say that keeping your indoor air quality optimal is important. The question is how exactly you go about doing that.

Indoor air quality assistance is another HVAC service in Fresno, CA that our team provides because we know that temperature control and air quality go hand in hand. Let us explain a bit more about how the air in your home can help or hinder the effectiveness of your AC.

Your Air Quality, Your AC, and You

Your comfort is going to be impacted by your air quality and your air conditioner’s effectiveness. You want your air conditioner to be as effective as possible, so it is a good idea to make sure that your air quality is in good shape too. Here are some reasons why:

  • Clean air is easier to cool, plain and simple.
  • When there’s less dust in the air, the airflow into your AC will be stronger.
  • Less dust in the air means less dust that will end up getting onto your evaporator coil and causing problems for the cooling process.
  • The cleaner your air, the easier things will be on your HVAC system overall, meaning the easier it will be for you to stay comfortable.
  •  Cleaner air will be less likely to trigger respiratory irritation such as allergy symptoms or asthma.

When Poor Air Quality Becomes a Problem

If your air quality is bad enough it can cause serious trouble for your AC. For one thing, you’ll notice that your system air filter gets clogged more frequently which strains the system and reduces airflow. Another issue is that dirtier air can muck up the internal components of your AC to the point that you will need a system repair. Thankfully, if you are having problems with your air quality, we can offer help in the form of indoor air quality systems.

Improving Your Comfort is Our Goal

Installing an air filtration system doesn’t just help your comfort now, it saves you added time, money, and stress later on too. This system can remove excess dust and other airborne contaminants from your indoor air. That cleaner air will be easier to cool leaving you more comfortable. And not to worry about the dust that got into your AC before this–we make sure to clean your evaporator coil during your AC tune-ups–just make sure to make that maintenance appointment to make sure that dirty air isn’t causing your comfort problems.
