Your Air Quality, Your AC, and You


Keeping your home comfortable in South Carolina is going to be an important task. To do this, you will need to take every factor into account, from the quality of your AC unit to the quality of the air being cooled. If you didn’t realize that your air quality is a big part of your comfort, then it is a great thing that you are reading this blog.

Air quality, good or bad, can seriously impact the ability of your air conditioning in Mount Pleasant, SC to do its job. When you want to keep your home cool and keep yourself comfortable, investing in a system to improve your indoor air quality can go a long well to help.

How Bad Air Quality Hinders Comfort

It often comes as a surprise to some people that poor air quality can impact their comfort and not just agitate their allergies. Poor air quality can make your air conditioner’s job a lot harder. This is because air that is packed with dust and debris can cause problems for your system’s cooling process. This is because too much dust can collect on your filter and can start to collect on your evaporator coil too.

Overly humid air can cause problems too. If the air in your home has too much moisture in it, this can also make things hard on your AC unit. Addressing issues like these can help to improve your indoor air quality and will improve your comfort. The question you likely have is, “How?”

How You Can Help Your Air Quality

There isn’t much that you can do to boost the air quality in your home. It isn’t like you can dust the air floating around you. However, there are some tasks you can take on to improve your IAQ.

  • Dust around your home. Regular dusting and vacuuming can remove a large amount of airborne debris that might mess with your comfort otherwise.
  • Keep the windows and doors closed. We know that fresh air can be nice every now and then. However, there are plenty of particles that outdoor air tends to carry into your home. If you’ve been having trouble with your IAQ, it may be a good idea to keep your doors and windows shut for a while.
  • Change your AC filter. Your AC filter is meant to help capture dust and debris to keep it out of your system. If your filter is overly clogged, however, it won’t be of much help. Make sure to switch out your filter every few months to keep the air going into your system clean and clear.
