Indoor Air Quality in the Fall

Indoor air quality continues to make news because most of us spend the majority of our time indoors, whether for work or school. Afterward, it’s home for dinner and for most of us, relaxation or family-time until bed.

That’s a lot of hours breathing indoor air. How does your home stack up? Not sure? Call your quality HVAC contractor Mills Heating & Air for an assessment and recommendations for improvement.

Respiratory Awareness for Indoor Air Quality Health Concerns

Fall months are popular to create awareness for various respiratory conditions and caregivers. At Mills Heating & Air, we try to educate our customers about the importance of indoor air quality with every home visit. When you tune-up your HVAC system, for example, it improves your indoor air quality.

Our licensed technicians perform a thorough inspection of your entire HVAC system. They look for any signs of excess wear and tear or malfunctions which may affect the system’s performance or your indoor air quality.

As part of the maintenance visit, he or she cleans, tests and lubricates all relevant components. They will clean the system and change the air filter. This eliminates a lot of the contaminants from your HVAC system.

Allergens Affect Indoor Air Quality for Most of the Population

Ragweed, a common allergen in Florida and the south in general, spreads pollen for months. Many people think of late summer or early fall allergies as “hay fever,” although this phrase is old-fashioned.

Most people with seasonal allergies are uninvolved with a hay harvest. Instead, it’s allergens like ragweed, mold spores, dust or pet dander which cause most of the problems. When kids return to school, they may be exposed to new allergens as well.

Be sure to talk to your child’s teacher and school nurse if you child is vulnerable to allergy or asthma triggers. Most schools take advantage of our outdoor recess as often as possible, which may expose your child to an environmental allergen.

Whether it’s pollen or the dander from a class pet, it’s important to communicate with your child’s school for comfort and safety.

Carbon Monoxide and Smoke for Indoor Air Quality Safety

Smoke and carbon monoxide concerns are not season-exclusive. While most incidents happen over the winter months (Centers for Disease Control) due to an increase in fireplaces, wood stoves or gas-fueled appliances, it’s important to be vigilant all year. If you do not have adequate detection for smoke or carbon monoxide, please put it on your priority list to protect yourself and your family.
