Indoor Air vs. Outdoor Air

Have you ever thought about quality of the air in your house? Would you consider the air inside your home to be cleaner than the air outside?

Unless you use a high quality and efficient air filter in your HVAC system, you could be very wrong. Consider that the air in your home originally comes from outdoors, bringing in pollutants, such as pollen, smoke, and other allergy-causing debris and organisms. When this happens, it actually settles on surfaces within your home and can get into your air ducts. By getting in the air ducts, these pollutants are constantly redistributed into the air you are breathing inside of your home.

When you are outside, even with pollution all around you, the air is constantly moving diluting that pollution. On the flip side, your home has less air movement due to being closed up. Contaminates including mold, dust, and pet dander are then constantly being re-circulated and breathed in by you and your family. There is a simple solution, though: air filter services in Jacksonville, Florida from Snyder Heating and Air Conditioning.

There are millions of people who are allergic to a wide range of air pollutants, and I am one of them. I am severely allergic to dust and hay, all while dealing with asthma. I was amazed when I had an air filtration system installed at how quickly it really started working, and what the filter looked like when I had it replaced for the first time. At this point in time, I would not know what to do without it. I can now actually say that I know the air in my home is cleaner than outside, plus, as an added bonus, there is less dusting that I need to do.

Store Bought Or HVAC Air Filtration System?

There are several decent air purifiers on the market today that you can buy and they do work, but how much are they really cleaning the air? Have you ever seen a ray from the sun shine through a window along with a bunch of little dust particles? That’s mostly what an air purifier from a store will get, but other contaminates such as mold and bacteria, will remain unaffected. While they will get the bigger stuff, which will help your air quality in the room that it’s set up in, they will not affect the air quality in the rest of the home.

An HVAC air filtration system with efficient air filters in Jacksonville can remove anything from large dust particles, mold, mildew caused by humidity to bacteria and many other hazardous contaminants. These particles in the air can cause many symptoms like headaches, congestion, dizziness, along with other cold/flu symptoms..
