It may not seem like winter is approaching — especially in Englewood, Florida but it will be here soon. Is your HVAC winter-ready? It’s a question the air conditioning professionals from Symbiont Air Conditioning in Florida talk with their commercial and residential customers about at this time of the year.
Winter, such as it is, in Florida will soon be here and even if your air conditioning unit weathered summer with flying colors, you need to know it will keep you warm when you need it this winter. Because the heating and air conditioning system works year-round, you need to ensure it is ready to warm the house or office when the time arrives.
You certainly don’t want to wake up to a cold house or walk into a cold office, right?
Why is your home so dusty? That certainly isn’t something the air conditioning professionals from Symbiont Air Conditioning in Englewood, Florida would point out BUT they do know that dirty air conditioner air filters can lead to a thin layer of dust coating your furniture and floors.
The air filter in an HVAC unit is essential to the air quality of your home. You can certainly check the cleanliness — or dirtiness — of the filters in your air conditioner. If they are dirty you will want to clean them and replace them with new, clean ones. When we pay a service visit for your HVAC unit, checking and cleaning or replacing the filters is one of the many steps we take to assure the unit is working as effectively and efficiently as it should.
What else should you know about air filters and dust? The MERV rating, for sure. This may not be a term you’re familiar with but it is the rating of the impact your air conditioning filter will have on the air you breathe.
Proper home air ventilation has always been important, but it has taken on a more significant role in the wake of COVID-19. Proper air ventilation could protect you from coronavirus and its airborne particles. With everyone #stayinghome during the #coronavirus pandemic, it is even more important to be breathing air that is free of pollutants.
Proper home ventilation will help you weather the Florida humidity and heat and will also alleviate concerns about indoor air quality. Proper ventilation also protects your home from moisture issues; moisture can lead to health problems, mildew, mold and damage and the home itself.
