Tips To Improve Indoor Air Quality in Spring

Darren Kincaid - Saturday, February 29, 2020
Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VA

Spring is almost here! We all love the idea of warmer weather and blooming flowers. On the other hand, the start of allergy season is a matter of serious concern among folks that suffer from sniffles and wheezes all due to pollens and other allergens. Bear in mind that a compromised indoor air quality can also trigger this condition.

In order to help those who are suffering from chronic allergies get through the spring season, we provide ways to improve your indoor air quality:

  • Take a bath – Pollen and other allergens may adhere to skin, hair, and clothing. Bathe daily especially when you arrive home from outside and place used clothes in the laundry right away. Doing this will mitigate the chances of contaminants being released into the air inside your home.
  • Have a filtration system for your ductwork – Although ducts have built-in filters, reinforcing your ductwork with additional high quality filters and an air cleaning system can prevent harmful particles from penetrating your home through the HVAC system.
  • Clean filters regularly – Routine cleaning of the AC filters is important especially for households with members who are suffering from chronic allergies. It is recommended to clean the filters at least once every 2 months during the pollen season. While once every 6 months can suffice for other times of the year.
  • Keep your home clean – Spring cleaning must be done frequently to get rid of dust, dander, pollen, and other contaminants inside your home. Do deep cleanings at least once a week. Replace curtains, change bed linens, and vacuum carpets weekly to eliminate contaminants affecting indoor air quality.
  • Clean ducts before spring arrives – Have the ductwork cleaned prior allergy season to reduce pollutants to hurl into your home. This will clear dirt buildup in them, which may include mold and mildew, rodent droppings, and other similar contaminants.

If you need professional solution to improve the indoor air quality of your home, contact Central Plumbing and Heating, Inc. We can help you mitigate pollutants inside your home.

Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Furnace System Performing at Its Best

This blog post is offered as a public service to remind all of you that your HVAC system needs regular and recurring maintenance to prolong the life and the performance of your systems. We know for a fact that HVAC systems are the most neglected of the homeowner’s major support systems. We hope that you wisely turn to the professionals like us here at Central Plumbing and Heating to guarantee that you secure proper maintenance and maximize the lifespan of your systems. But if you choose to go it alone, the following are furnace maintenance tips that will help you maximize the performance of your heating system throughout winter.

1. Hire a professional tune-up - Again, always your best choice. Schedule a professional tune-up bi-annually. Certified technicians will check the unit for any operational issues and will carry out the upkeep procedure such as cleaning in order to prevent it from malfunctioning in the future, improve its efficiency and ensure that the system is operating safely.

2. Clean the Filters Regularly - A dirty filter is a usual cause of issues and efficiency problems.

The filter must be checked, cleaned or changed monthly.

3. Test the CO detectors - CO detector serves as a warning device that detects a carbon monoxide leak which can be life-threatening. CO detectors must be tested to ensure they are working properly. Also, make sure that the batteries are new during the heating season.

4. Let air registers breathe - The furnace may find it difficult to heat your home evenly when any of the air registers are blocked off. Make sure they are open and remove any obstructions.

5. Inspect the pilot light in older furnaces - Make sure an older furnace with a pilot light is burning bright blue. In case you notice a different color, it indicates inefficient burning and you may need to contact your trusted HVAC technician to check the issue.

6. Outdoor exhaust pipes must be blocked - Gas furnaces that are highly efficient have exhaust pipes that lead outside the home and close the ground. In order to ensure it operates safely and efficiently, make sure pipes are not blocked.

7. Keep the area around the system clear - Clear the area around the furnace so it is easy to access during inspection, maintenance or repairs.
