3 Simple Baldwin Park AC Tips to Better your Health This Fall Season
Are you catching a cold or flu? Did you ever think I could be due to your air quality? Today we’re sharing three simple Baldwin Park AC tips to better your health this fall season.
As November rolls around, cold fronts and lower temperatures can bring about the cold and flu season. If you are like us, when you hear people around you start getting sniffly, you worry about getting sick. Although cold and flu season may seem unavoidable, here are a few Baldwin Park AC tips that you can implement in your home to prevent your family from catching a cold. Let’s get started!
Air Out Your House
On those mild days when the pollen counts aren’t high, open your windows and get some fresh air in your home. The chemicals used while cleaning your house or the chemicals used in the manufacture of furniture can be trapped for days, weeks or even months in your home. Bringing in fresh air helps flush out the bad air and replace it with clean air.
Check Your Filter And Replace It With A Pleated Filter
A pleated filter catches a lot more than the old blue filters. Trust our Baldwin Park AC tips because your sinuses will thank you! Another benefit of implementing a pleated filter is that your AC will stay cleaner and operate more efficiently. Its rating should be printed on the packaging, but a typical pleated filter can be anywhere from MERV 8 to MERV 13. The higher the MERV rating, the smaller the particles it will capture, and the more efficient it is at cleaning the air.
The highest rated filter whole house filter is the Lennox Carbon Clean filter with a MERV rating of 16. The Carbon Clean 16 is effective against common household allergens that can aggravate asthma and respiratory illnesses. It also attacks germs like viruses, bacteria, and mold. As part of the Carbon Clean 16® natural and efficient purification process, carbon inside the filter that has been treated with oxygen reacts with odors, neutralizing them before they can recirculate into your home. 4 Seasons Air can install a filter cabinet on your existing HVAC system to accept the 5” thick Carbon Clean 16 filter.
Heating System Checkup
An inspection and tune-up by a trusted and certified HVAC professional like our team, will make sure your heating system is clean and we’ll check that all parts are in good condition. It is particularly crucial that furnaces are operating at maximum efficiency. A maintenance check will help detect any small problems before they turn into big ones, ensuring that you remain comfortable and trouble-free throughout the fall and winter months.
At 4 Seasons Air we recommend an AC system checkup and a heating check up which is why our Gold Club members receive two inspections per year. Dirt is the most significant enemy of your system, and just like a car, your HVAC system needs regular maintenance to heat and cool at peak efficiency and performance. Routine preventive maintenance also helps to extend the lifespan of your system and can help detect potential problems before they occur, avoiding a costly breakdown or part replacement.
