How Indoor Air Quality Data Helps HVAC Technicians

May 13, 2020

One of the simplest fixes that a qualified HVAC technician can provide to a homeowner who is concerned about the air quality in their home is a quick look at the filters. If a filter becomes too dirty to do its primary job, there will be major air quality issues in the house.

A technician can measure the particles per million of dust in the air and get a pretty good idea of whether this is a contributing problem. The good news is it is a quick and cheap fix, and it can also provide additional data about the condition of your HVAC system.

Is Your Lifestyle Contributing to Poor Air Quality?

Sometimes, a customer may be exacerbating the poor air quality in their home due to the choices they make. If a customer loves to fry food in their kitchen, for example, this may have an impact on their air quality. Any time that you release smoke into your house, the air will be stagnant unless circulated by your HVAC system.

The more chemicals that you push through your HVAC unit, the harder time it is going to have recirculating clean air. Smoking is another habit that undoubtedly has a negative impact on air quality that can be measured by a technician.

Do I Have Proper Ventilation?

The last area a technician will evaluate as they try to troubleshoot any air quality issues in your home is ventilation. You need to have the right balance between clean air intake and outtake for your system to work properly.

Technicians at DuPree Heating & Air Conditioning can easily measure this airflow to make a proper system determination. If your system is not generating enough flow, you may need to invest in repairs.
