When the temperature starts to rise in the spring, how does it affect your indoor air quality? You might think of spring allergies as strictly outdoors, but your thermostat and air conditioning unit may impact you and your family's health more than you realize throughout the year. Learn about how your thermostat influences your indoor air quality, then decide whether you would benefit from reaching out for professional AC repair, from Air Pros to upgrade your system and enjoy the purest air year-round.
The Role of the Temperature
The air is filled with millions of particles, pollutants, and contaminants that enter your home through open doors, windows, pets, and even your clothes. Some types of air pollution thrive in warmer weather, which is prevalent in Coral Springs. That means as the temperatures rise outside, there is more pollution to be aware of. However, even indoors, a poorly calibrated or damaged thermostat could cause greater humidity and pollution transmission.
Your air conditioner’s filters are responsible for capturing the dirt, dust, and other contaminants that reduce indoor air quality. Without regular cleaning, your system not only has to work harder but also distribute unpurified air throughout the home. Additionally, a damaged calibrator will cause your air conditioning to run at reduced capacity. Thermostats that are unable to properly communicate with your AC's motor can reduce the overall effectiveness of your system's filtering ability. At Air Pros, our AC repair services can diagnose and quickly resolve any issues that may be impacting your home's air quality.
Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
A miscalibrated or even dirty thermostat does not have to be drastically damaged to negatively affect your air conditioning unit. In most cases, you are likely to notice that there is something wrong with the air quality in your home before you detect any issues with your heating or air conditioning units.
These are some of the top warning signs of poor indoor air quality:
- Higher humidity levels
- Peeling paint or wallpaper
- Mold growth
- Persistent dryness in the throat, ear, nose, and eyes
- Sinus problems or allergy symptoms
- Coughing, sneezing, headaches, and fatigue
- More dust and dirt collecting on surfaces
