AIR CONDITIONING AND ASTHMA
Those who suffer from asthma are sensitive to allergens in the air, such as pollen, dust, pet dander, dust mites, and mold. It can be hard to control allergens both in the home and at the office. So what can you do?
By using your air conditioning unit in the summer, you will help to keep down mold. Mold thrives in moist, damp environments. Your air conditioning unit will keep the temperature in your home and office low enough that mold and dust mites can’t grow and thrive. In addition, your air conditioning unit pulls in air from the outside, which helps to bring in fresh air and remove stagnant air where allergens can accumulate.
However, you’ll need to invest in regular air conditioning maintenance by your local HVAC company, such as Cool Air Conditioning in El Monte, in order to ensure your AC unit’s filters are clean (and that you have the proper filter for your AC unit) and functioning optimally. This will prevent any allergen and mold circulation inside your home or office.
Cool City Air Conditioning in El Monte also recommends that you run your air conditioning for the better part of the summer in order to keep your air moving, refreshed, and circulated. You can also use the fan only function of your air conditioning. You will still have the benefit of moving air; the air just won’t be cooled. If you have a question about the quality of your indoor air, we offer air quality testing service as well.
If allergies and asthma are severe, you can also invest in an air purifying system as well to help remove allergens and other toxins from the air. In addition, Cool City Air Conditioning in El Monte recommends you have your ductwork regularly cleaned as well so allergens don’t accumulate and then are recirculated.
