If you think that temperature alone will be able to improve your home comfort, you’re mistaken. While it would be nice to be able to rely on the number on the thermostat alone, you also need to think about your indoor air quality. What’s that? It includes the temperature, but also the relative humidity (how much moisture is in the air), as well as the amount of contaminants and/or pollutants floating throughout your household.
It’s not uncommon to have such problems in Port Charlotte, which is why you may want to watch out for the following:
High humidity is one of the most unpleasant things during the summer. Even if you like the heat, a high amount of water vapor in the air can make it difficult to cool down; even perspiring often doesn’t help. With that in mind, you may have already bought a dehumidifier from your local hardware store and plugged it in somewhere. Keep in mind that while this is a decent, short-term solution, a whole-house dehumidifier is a much more effective and comprehensive solution.
Dust, Dander, and Other Debris
Whether you’re suffering from allergic reactions inside your home, or you can see the amount of dust, dirt, dander, and other debris floating through your air when the sunlight shines through, you don’t have to settle. Such contaminants can be dealt with simply and with little to no effort on your part with a whole-house air purifier. There is also a particular type of purifier that uses ultraviolet light to destroy bacteria and other microbiological contaminants.
Problems with Your Air Conditioner
For the majority of homeowners in our area, their indoor air quality will be based on the performance of their air conditioner. If your AC is not working as it should, then your air quality will suffer. Take care of your AC with routine professional maintenance.
