With the amount of money you spend on your energy bills, the last thing you want is to feel discomfort in your Marietta, Georgia, home. If you are experiencing any kind of discomfort, these three perpetrators associated with your HVAC system may be to blame.
Indoor Air Quality
If you or your family are experiencing headaches, flu-like symptoms, asthma attacks, or allergies in your home, your air quality could be to blame. Poor indoor air quality can cause many health issues that worsen over time. Indoor air quality is especially important during the summer and winter when you tend to close up the house tightly and stay indoors more often. Have your IAQ tested and carry out any recommended strategies to keep your air clean throughout the year.
Warm Spots In Your Home
When you are spending the money on air conditioning, the last thing you want is hot spots throughout your home. Blocked air vents, lack of insulation, clogged air filters, or an incorrectly sized HVAC system all lead to uneven heating and cooling throughout your home. Before calling your HVAC contractor, make sure all your air vents are open and there is no furniture blocking the air flow. If you still experience warm spots, call in a contractor to delve deeper and discover what’s causing the uneven air flow in your home.
If the humidity level in your home is too high or too low, your home won’t be comfortable, and it can make you sick. High humidity levels make your home feel hotter and can cause mold growth in your home. If the humidity levels are too low, your skin may become dry or cracked, you may develop flu-like symptoms, and your sleep may be affected. Test the humidity levels in your home, then consider buying a humidifier or dehumidifier to control the humidity levels throughout the year.
