Is It Time for a New Air Filter for Your AC?

Maintaining good indoor air quality is particularly important to households in which family members have allergies and asthma symptoms. But even in those homes where allergies are not normally a big issue, it can be obvious when the indoor air quality has declined. If you notice more frequent sneezing, coughing, or illnesses in your family members, it may be time for a change. Do you need to change your AC system’s air filter? Or is it time for an upgrade?

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality: Get a Whole-House System Instead

The weather is changing, which means people in the home are bound to notice their allergy and asthma symptoms returning. The air quality inside of a house is often worse than the air quality outdoors, which is why you need systems in place to filter out the particles that aggravate symptoms and make people sick. But that small plug-in air purifier might not do the trick. Continue reading “Improve Your Indoor Air Quality: Get a Whole-House System Instead”

Turning Down the Thermostat Won’t Cool Your Home Any Faster!

You’ve just gone for a run, returned home from the gym, or come inside after some tough yard work.

Why Bi-Annual AC Maintenance in Ponte Vedra Is Important

As many people in our area know, winter in Ponte Vedra is really more a break from the humidity than an actual winter season. This break provides a few months of cooler temperatures, but it also provides you the opportunity to schedule one of the two recommended AC maintenance appointments for your Ponte Vedra home. The ideal times for AC maintenance are fall and spring, but the main goal is to have your system maintained every six months, no matter what the season. Why is bi-annual maintenance important? There are a few reasons, but the one of the biggest reasons is humidity.

Effects on Your AC

You know how humidity feels on your skin: oppressive, hot and sticky; this isn’t any different for your air conditioner. But your air conditioner is a mechanical device, and as such, humidity can have a number of adverse effects on the system.

Excess Dirt and Dust

First, high levels of humidity attract dirt and dust, and the moisture allows these elements to cling. As such, your system can become very dirty, and components can become caked in a layer of dirt and dust that can inhibit their operation.

Mold Growth

Another problem that can often develop from excessive humidity is the development of mold. Mold needs moisture and dank conditions to grow, and several areas inside your system are ideal for mold growth, including both sets of coils and your ductwork. Mold growth can become invasive very quickly and can be a challenge to remove once it’s taken hold; with bi-annual maintenance appointments, your entire system is thoroughly inspected, so if mold has developed, it will caught before it can become a serious problem.

Extra Work

Lastly, heavy humidity forces your AC to work harder, even if you’ve kept your thermostat at the same temperature setting. This is because humidity holds heat, and the more humidity your AC has to remove to make it cool and dry in your home, the harder it works. Harder work means more wear and tear on your system, and the best way to remedy the effects of wear and tear is with consistent maintenance.

If it’s been more than 6 months since your last AC maintenance appointment in Ponte Vedra, call Air Source America today and schedule an appointment!
