How to Improve AC Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common air pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.

Indoor air pollution is the biggest environmental hazard in India. One way people can be proactive and protect themselves from getting sick in general is by improving Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Residual contaminants can travel through your HVAC system, where all the air in the house is circulated and can contribute to the spread of the virus. The HVAC air duct system can contribute to spreading unwanted pathogens in the air because the air in your home became contaminated. HVAC contractors should educate customers on the value of indoor air quality and provide solutions and options to help the HVAC customers make educated decisions. 

Maintenance: A thorough cleaning of your air conditioner and air duct can remove any viral contamination that may occur. Other HVAC maintenance tasks should be performed as well.

Investing in routine AC maintenance will help safeguard your indoor air quality and can prevent any source of contaminants from circulating throughout your building through your air duct and HVAC system. If your HVAC system is not working properly, you will not experience consistently good air quality. If you are on a regular maintenance schedule, your air filters will be changed and AC coils will be cleaned on a timely basis. It is an important part of improving indoor air quality. Regular maintenance checks can also help prevent harmful refrigerant leaks or potentially deadly carbon monoxide leaks from happening. Many carbon monoxide leaks emanate from heating systems.

As you can see, a well-maintained HVAC system will not only save on AC repair costs but will result in good indoor air quality. This will boost employee health and productivity. It may be worth your while to have your HVAC system inspected and maintained by a qualified HVAC professional.

 Filtration: Indoor air filtration is always recommended. Install the highest-rated air filter that the system can accommodate. Air filters are highly effective. Many products offer high levels of filtration, but they greatly restrict airflow. To ensure, the original air flow is measured to the airflow after a high-efficiency filter is installed. Ensure any filter installed is well fitted to the rack.

Filters should capture contaminants and prevent the vast majority of them from entering your air space. Filters ensure that dust and grime do not clog your system. If these filters are not changed according to system specifications, clogging occurs and grime ends up in your equipment, ducts, and eventually in your indoor air. For allergy sufferers, there are special types of filters that remove more allergens. You should use HEPA filters, which are designed to improve air quality.

Cleaning: Though duct cleaning may not be part of routine maintenance, if your system has been neglected, you may want to have your ducts inspected because they could be dusty or moldy and impact your indoor air quality.

Your AC coils are crucial to the reliable operation of your system and cleaning those coils is an essential part of your indoor air quality solutions. An evaporator coil absorbs the heat and humidity from the air space. This coil is part of your indoor air handling unit.

 A condenser coil discharges the heat to the outside. This coil is often found on your outdoor unit and frequently is the victim of dirt accumulation. When dirt collects on the coils, heat gets trapped in the condenser coil and is not released. Your system will work longer to cool your space because it is unable to effectively absorb and discharge heat. This will result in muggy air because your system is unable to remove the humidity. Before you know it, a repair will be in order.

UV Treatment: Studies show that viruses become inactive after being exposed to UV light for 20 seconds. It is useful to kill viruses that are harmful to your indoor air quality. Nowadays there are many ways to do UV treatment at our workplaces and homes.

Ultraviolet air purifiers, which are designed to substantially improve indoor air quality and remove health-threatening microbial particles that may be in the air, are a popular choice. UV air filters kill dangerous particles without any actual filtration, but with rays of ultraviolet light that incinerate them as they pass through it.

Ventilation: Increase the percentage of outdoor air in the building. Before increasing outdoor air percentage, verify compatibility with HVAC system capabilities for both temperature and humidity control as well as compatibility with outdoor/indoor air quality considerations. Increase total airflow supply to occupied spaces, if possible.

An HVAC system should be inspected at a minimum, four times a year. The filters should be cleaned or replaced every month. Be sure to ask your HVAC technician about products that can help you breathe cleaner, fresher, healthier air. Quality maintenance, good hygiene, and proven best practices such as; improved indoor air quality, source control for contamination, and keeping a clean house are the keys to successfully navigating current health issues.

A properly designed ventilation system is critical because ventilation provides the right balance of gases and ensures that the air you breathe doesn’t contain too much carbon dioxide. It also controls odors and removes contaminants from occupied spaces. Sometimes correcting ventilation problems is just a matter of relocating intakes, adding makeup air, or moving ductwork.
