How Your Air Conditioner Can Keep Your Home Healthy

How Your Air Conditioner Can Keep Your Home Healthy

Air conditioners are not just useful for keeping your home cool and comfy during those hot and muggy Florida summers—when functioning efficiently, your HVAC system can also aid in maintaining good health for you and your family. Learn how your air conditioning can keep your home healthy here.

Did You Know? The Air Outside Is Cleaner than the Air Inside

It may come as a shock, but the air inside your home likely contains about five times more pollutants than the air outside. Factoring that statistic in with Florida’s hot and humid climate and your home can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew.

Mold and mildew can thrive within your HVAC system and disperse throughout your home, clinging to other surfaces and reproducing along the way. This can aggravate allergies, as well as other sinus or respiratory issues. Even worse, there is also the possibility of the formation of black mold, which can release dangerous toxins into the air.

What Your AC Can Do to Combat This

Along with cooling your home, your air conditioner can lower the moisture in the air. The filter within your HVAC system also prevents outside moisture from entering your home. This is especially important during Florida’s rainy summer months. Keeping your windows open can generate airflow that can also lower the moisture content in the home, but given the heat and the rain of the summer, that is not always a viable option. That’s why your air conditioner is so important for the health of your family and home.
