How to Use Your Air Conditioning to Control Your Asthma

How to Use Your Air Conditioning to Control Your Asthma

We often hear that without proper maintenance, air conditioning units may decrease your home’s quality of air. However, it can also enhance it when you treat your AC unit right.

What Air Conditioning and Asthma Have in Common

Mold, pollen, and pet dander are the main triggers of asthma.  These air particles are unavoidable to breathe in, but there is some good news to limit the amount of particles. Air conditioning units contain filters that keep our particle intake to a minimum. AC units also help eliminate humidity, which can rapidly start mold and algae growth around your home.

Air conditioners work by:

  1. Pulling air into the unit
  2. The air gets forced through filters, blowers, compressors, condensers, coolers and evaporators
  3. Then the air is blasted back at the temperature of your choice

This cycle keeps air circulating throughout your environment and eventually through your lungs.  Be aware that if the air quality does not improve and is still full of pollen, heavy mold, and animal dander than the problem may lie in the upkeep of the unit.  These causations could result in an asthma attack.

Professional Ideal Air Conditioning Upkeep

At Snyder Air Conditioning and Heating, we recommend having your air conditioner services at least once a year.  Our trained professionals will inspect the overall condition of the unit.

  • First, the performance of the unit will be checked for proper efficiency and make sure all mechanical aspects are operating smoothly
  • Then a check on the coolant level and pureness
  • The coils will then be inspected for mold or algae growth.
  • The blower will then be examined to make sure it is not corroded with dirt or other debris.  The wheels are also easy to clean if the damage is minimal.
  • Your filter will be replaced.
  • The drain will be cleaned of mold and algae.

This is Snyder Air Conditioning and Heating’s guarantee – we work hard to improve your indoor air quality.  Give Snyder a call today for a free estimate on the condition of your system, so we can ensure you get the long lasting life out of your AC system that you want.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
