Air quality is hugely important to our health. This day and age, we are acutely aware of the health complications air pollution can cause. However, indoor air quality is more important to our health than the air we breathe outside. After all, many of us spend most of our time indoors, especially during the winter season. Proper furnace maintenance is critical to maintaining good air quality in your home.
According to the EPA, the air inside your home can be drastically more polluted than the air we breathe outside. Poor indoor air quality can lead to a number of health complications and diseases. Some of the most common side effects are the development of allergies or asthma but over time, poor indoor air quality can also lead to more serious health problems. People have been known to develop respiratory disease or even cancer due to poor air quality. Another more severe and deadly consequence of improper furnace maintenance is carbon monoxide poisoning.
Furnace repair and maintenance is an important factor to maintaining your overall air quality. If your furnace is not properly maintained and serviced, you run the risk of particulates building up in the furnace. These particulates then have the potential to circulate through your home’s HVAC system and negatively affect your indoor air quality. In addition to having your furnace serviced, you can also help eliminate the build of these particulates by regularly changing your furnace filter.
