4 Tips To Avoid Health Risks With Your AC

People love staying fresh, and thanks to the wonders of Air Conditioning, that’s been a reality for most for over a 100 years now. In 1902, Willis Carrier invented the first modern AC system, and life has been wonderful ever since. If you know the joys of feeling a delightful breeze on the hottest days of summer, and your AC installation service in Mesa, AZ worked like a charm from day one. However, as time goes by AC systems could start to pose a risk for health if we don’t take the proper measures. That’s why, we at Velocity Mechanical, LCC, not only take our service and profession very seriously but also the well-being of our beloved customers. Today, we’d like to share with you some tips on how to keep your AC system as refreshing and friendly as always, without interfering with your health.

New is always better

This doesn’t mean that you have to get a new AC system every time you see an amazing work of art in the catalog. But, asking yourself if it’s been with your family for over 8 years, it might be a good idea at least to consider replacing it. Ideally, you should replace it every 10 years. Old and poorly maintained systems can cause respiratory problems and increase chances of spreading diseases. Those risks can be minimized by consciously evaluating and assessing if now is the right time to get a new shiny friendly new installation.

Clean the air ducts

Though the process itself hasn’t scientifically proved any health benefits. Mold or buildup of dust can be a hazard. During summer, AC systems produce humidity in the indoor area, and with condensation, it can leave the door open to mold. To avoid this, hiring a professional maintenance service before running it for the first time in a while is advised. During the cold months of the year, no one really turns the AC on, so it’s very likely that it will collect dust. Not having it cleaned by professionals, could mean that all that dust will end up in your nose, and we all know that’s never a good feeling.

Change the filters periodically

This is one of the most basic things you can do that will spare you and your family some trouble in the future. Old filters lose their effectiveness within time and start collecting dust particles which block the airflow and could let allergens, pesticides and other irritants come into your home without being welcomed.

Always go to a professional
