Designing Your AC Maintenance Plan
Are you renting on a month-to-month basis? Leasing a property for a short-term period of time? Are you a frequent traveler, or do you perhaps have someone who sublets/Airbnb your property? If so, a long-term maintenance contract with a plumbing service company and/or HVAC experts is needed.
Don’t like contracts? Another option is to call a contractor who offers short-term contracts or performs work on an as-needed basis. You can still get top-quality work done by an expert-level contractor at a fair rate without feeling locked into a contract that may have penalties for early termination.
Some homeowners would prefer to design your own maintenance plan. You may be comfortable completing certain HVAC and plumbing-related tasks yourself, therefore reducing the number of necessary visits from a licensed contractor. After doing the math, devising your own plan may make a lot more sense financially.
The difficult part may be finding a plumbing and HVAC company willing to be flexible enough to agree upon a custom schedule with you. Integrity Home Solutions, however, offers customized programs with no strings attached. That’s right, Tampa Bay, that’s part of what makes us a 5-star service.
New Filters: The Difference Clean Air Makes
Integrity Home Solutions’ expert contractors excel at replacing dirty air filters that are no longer able to be cleaned or used and are essentially useless.
How do you know if your air filter needs replacing? Most likely, you will have noticed a great increase in the amount of dust, dirt, and allergens in your home’s air.
You may also observe the visible accumulation of dust on air intake valves located on the ceiling of your home. If you were to examine the filter itself, it would undoubtedly be discolored and covered in dirt, dust, hair, and grease (primarily due to cooking).
Some, but not all, air filters can be cleaned if they are composed of washable material. However, every air filter has a lifespan specified by the manufacturer.
Once the respective lifespan has passed, you will start to observe the telltale signs that it is time for the filter to be replaced by a professional. Simply cleaning an obsolete filter will not solve the air quality problem.
Fresh Air: Professional Air Duct Cleaning
No matter how thorough and fastidious of a cleaner you are, nothing compares to getting your air ducts cleaned by a professional.
Experts have the tools, knowledge, and know-how to get the job done right. Some of the benefits of professional air duct cleaning are as follows:
- The reduction of irritants, pollutants, and allergens.
- The system will operate with greater efficiency; free of encumbrances.
- The less frequent need for filter replacement which ultimately saves money.
- A generally cleaner, more sterile environment.
- Less frequency of asthma attacks.
- Less dusting necessary.
- An overall cleaner, fresher smell throughout the household as air circulates.
Why Air Quality Matters… a Lot
Whether you suffer from asthma, allergies, COPD, emphysema or another disorder that inhibits your breathing or if you are perfectly healthy, the quality of the air you breathe matters.
Obviously, air that’s full of animal dander, pollen, dust, bacteria, and other irritants are going to aggravate the lungs, eyes, nasal passages, skin and so forth of someone with severe allergies.
However, these same irritants can aggravate the circulatory system of an otherwise perfectly healthy person. Our natural filters are not invincible and can become contaminated the way that any other filters can, and our barriers that protect us from breathing in harmful particles are breached.
In other words, if you put a healthy person in a room with dirty air and poor circulation, inevitably, he or she will wind up with a runny nose, watery eyes, an irritated throat and so forth. Clean air matters for everyone.
