What’s the Connection Between Your HVAC and IAQ?

indoor air quality

HVAC and indoor air quality (IAQ) go hand-in-hand like summertime and outdoor barbeques or fireworks and the Fourth of July. But how exactly does your home comfort system impact your IAQ, and vice versa? Here’s a brief look at how the two work together for your health and comfort.

Air Filter

Your system’s air filter traps airborne particulates that can degrade IAQ such as pollen, dust mite waste and mold spores. When a technician from Jackson & Sons services HVAC equipment, he or she will replace the filter. If you need a higher degree of filtration to aid in removing allergens out of the air, the technician will know the precise filter to use.

Evaporator Coil

All air conditioners use an evaporator coil that holds the refrigerant. As the fan blows the air over it, the refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air. Since it’s so cold, humidity condenses on the coil and this component provides an ideal environment for mold or biofilms growth. The presence of either on the coil can degrade your indoor air quality. During a maintenance tune up, a Jackson & Sons professional will inspect the coil and clean it.

Improving Air Quality

The easiest ways to use your HVAC system to improve IAQ include:
