Spring in Gainesville, FL, is beautiful. Though many trees and plants stay in bloom through our mild winter, they develop a brighter shade of green as spring arrives. Although light breezes make it tempting to fling open the windows, keep in mind that spring air carries many microscopic particles that could affect indoor air quality (IAQ).
A home's IAQ depends on several factors, such as:
- Local climate;
- Moisture levels inside the home; and
- The efficiency of the HVAC system.
LIBERTYAIR provides several IAQ services for Gainesville homes and businesses. To learn more about these services, or to schedule an appointment for AC repair in Gainesville, FL, call us today!
How To Improve Your Home’s IAQ
When you suspect your home has poor IAQ, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with the myriad of IAQ-related tips, tricks and information available online. LIBERTYAIR, a Gainesville AC company, has three suggestions to begin improving IAQ.
Proper ventilation goes a long way toward improving indoor air quality. If the kitchen and/or bathroom have exhaust fans, make sure they’re functional and remember to use them. Exhaust fans clear out extra moisture, foul odors and pollutants that can affect your health. Also, repair and seal all ductwork as part of your home’s HVAC maintenance routine.
Use Air Cleaners
Air cleaners are popular choices for improving indoor air quality, but not all are effective at removing allergens. Look for an air cleaner that uses true HEPA filters, not HEPA-type. True HEPA filters, which can be installed in your vacuum, are able to remove particles as small as 0.3 microns in size.
Schedule Air Duct Cleaning
Clean air ducts can boost IAQ during and beyond springtime. Allergens, such as pet dander and plant pollen, can build up inside ductwork over time and then be blown out into the rest of the home when the HVAC system is turned on. LIBERTYAIR’s professional duct cleaning service removes all buildup from the air ducts, vents and registers, instantly improving your home’s indoor air quality.

While planning your home’s traditional springtime deep clean, make a note to call LIBERTYAIR for a spring HVAC maintenance appointment.
