            Learn About Indoor Air Quality & How You Can Improve It

            indoor air quality

            Your home’s air quality has always been important. But, with more and more people working and going to school from home, the air you and your family breathe every day needs to be as fresh and healthy as possible. Many newer homes are very airtight, which can be great for energy efficiency but also means that the air in the home stays in, getting circulated again and again. As such, you want to make sure the air you breathe is as healthy as possible.

            You may not be entirely sure what indoor air quality is, or how poor indoor air can affect your home. And, you may not know how to improve it. In this guide, you’ll learn about indoor air quality – what it is, how it can affect you, and how you can improve it. We’ll share some pointers that can help you to start getting better indoor air quality today, and tell you about products that are available that can help you and your family breathe easier!

            Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), Defined

            Start Improving Your Indoor Air Quality Today.

            Submit a request,
            Or give us a call.

            860-633-6122

            The Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, defines indoor air quality as “the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of the building’s occupants.” The EPA goes on to say that by understanding and controlling the common pollutants often found in indoor air, you can reduce your risk of health concerns.

            They add that indoor air quality may cause certain health-related issues if it isn’t healthy, including:

            • Eye irritation
            • Nasal irritation
            • Throat irritation
            • Headaches
            • Dizziness
            • Fatigue

            In general, if you remove yourself from the source of these pollutants and get fresher, cleaner air, these problems will likely go away on their own. Unfortunately, prolonged exposure to these irritants can lead to problems with the respiratory system and other, more long-term health concerns. If you or your family have any of the above symptoms, fortunately there are measures you can take to ensure that the air in your home is not the cause of them.

            Causes of Indoor Air Quality Issues

            While there are many things that can cause your home to have poor indoor air quality, the most likely suspect is indoor particulate matter. There are numerous microscopic particles in the air at any given time, but there are some that can cause irritation and even illness. Some of these include:

            • Dirt
            • Dust
            • Cooking, Wood, and Tobacco Smoke
            • Pet Dander
            • Spores
            • Pollen
            • Viruses
            • Bacteria

            Because of the microscopic nature of these particles, they can get into your respiratory system via the simple act of breathing. That’s why removing them from your indoor air is important. They can cause the symptoms listed in the previous section, and can be particularly problematic to people suffering from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues.

            Improving IAQ: Some Simple Measures

            Naturally, if you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed you’ll likely want to take some steps to improve your indoor air quality as soon as possible. There are a few measures you can take right away to help improve your IAQ, including:

            • Change the filter on your HVAC system regularly. The point of the filter is to trap contaminants and keep them from entering your indoor air. When your filter becomes clogged and dirty, those particulates will be forced back into your indoor air – and back into your lungs.
            • Keeping windows closed on high-pollen days. If you suffer from allergies, you probably keep your eye on the pollen count before heading out for the day. But, pollen can travel easily and enter your home through an open window.
            • Take off outerwear and shoes before entering your home. Because pollen and other particulates can cling to you when you’re outdoors, one measure you can take is to leave coats, hats, and shoes on the porch or entryway.
            • Become friends with your vacuum. Maybe vacuuming isn’t your favorite household chore, but it’s a necessary one. Carpeting is notorious for holding in all sorts of particulates, especially dust, dirt, and dander. Regular vacuuming can help mitigate those pollutants in your home.

            Making these changes right away can be helpful, bit they might not reduce indoor air pollution enough that you and your family are comfortable. If you take these measures, but still notice that your eyes, nose, and throat are irritated, or that there’s a lot of dust on your furniture and even in the air, you’ll likely want to consider products that are made to improve indoor air quality.

            The IAQ Products You Need from Degree Heating & Cooling

            Whether you’ve recently purchased a new air conditioning system, or have one that’s several years old, an important question you may be asking is, “How long do AC units last?” Of course, there’s not really an easy answer to that question.

            Degree can help with your home AC needs.

            There are many factors involved when it comes to a cooling system’s longevity. The climate you live in, how frequently you use it, and how well you maintain it all come into play when determining the life of your system.

            According to the Dept. of Energy, the average life expectancy of a central air conditioner is about 15 to 20 years. If you’re currently in the market for a new system, planning ahead and staying proactive once your AC unit is installed can help prolong its life.

            Modern equipment is manufactured to be as efficient as possible, and to use refrigerant that is non-ozone depleting. You may be surprised to learn that today’s air conditioners use anywhere between 30 and 50 percent less energy than those manufactured in the 1970s.

            You can make sure your AC unit lasts longer and stands the test of time by taking these measures:

            • Find a reputable contractor. At Degree Heating & Cooling, we’ve been helping people with their air conditioning needs since 1993. We’re Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealers. That means you can count on us to get the cooling equipment you need from a name that has been trusted for generations. As experts in the cooling field, we work hard to make sure our customers get systems that are built to last and energy-efficient.
            • Make sure your system is properly sized and installed. Having the right size unit for your home and lifestyle is an important part of your system’s longevity. If a system is either too small or too large, it won’t work properly and will cause stresses to the system that can lead to early failure. A qualified, highly trained technician from Degree will help ensure your system is the right size, and is installed to perfection.
            • Keep your system maintained on an ongoing basis. One of the best ways you can extend the life of your AC unit is by making sure it gets the maintenance it needs. Annual maintenance from Degree Heating & Cooling helps ensure your system is operating at its most efficient and most effective. And, we’re pleased to offer our customers annual service agreements, which can help reduce maintenance costs. Be sure to check your filter often, especially when your AC system is running frequently. Change monthly during these times.

            Degree Heating & Cooling can help you save money while improving your comfort. If you need a new AC unit that will last, or want to help your current system enjoy the longest life possible, count on us to meet your needs. Simply give us a call at (860) 633-6122, and we’ll be more than happy to assist you.

            Can a Dirty Air Filter Cause My Air Conditioner Not to Cool?

            Air conditioner blowing cold air

            It’s been a warm summer, and that means you probably have run your home’s air conditioner quite a bit. If it isn’t cooling your home as well as you’d like, the best first step is also the easiest – check your filter. Many people wonder, “Can a dirty air filter cause my AC not to cool?” The simple answer is yes – a dirty filter can create several problems that can hinder your unit’s effectiveness. Not to mention, a dirty filter can also lead to premature failure of your system. Experts like those at Degree Heating & Cooling recommend changing your filter monthly for best results.

            Dirty filters can cause a whole host of problems for homeowners. First of all, they can cause allergens to build up in your home. When the filter is dirty, allergens can’t get trapped in the filter like they’re supposed to. So, they start building up in your ductwork. The result? The air released into your home every time your air conditioner runs is full of allergens, like pollen, spores, dander – and even bacteria. This leads to poor indoor air quality and can cause you and your family some unpleasant physical symptoms, like stuffiness, sneezing, and itchy eyes.

            As a result of the buildup, a dirty filter will also cause poor cold airflow in your air conditioning system. That cold air will be trapped inside your air conditioner, causing ice to form on its coils. Once that happens, your air conditioner will freeze up and become inoperable. Before your system freezes up completely, however, there will be a few telltale signs you should look out for. Uneven cooling throughout your home is one of them. If you notice some rooms are more difficult to cool than others, while others constantly feel cold, you’ll want to check your AC filter first.

            One of the most obvious signs of a blocked, dirty filter is air conditioning system inefficiency. Clogged filters force your system to use more energy to cool your home. And that translates into a higher utility bill. Not to mention, when a dirty filter constantly forces your AC system to work overtime, it causes some significant wear and tear on your unit. And ultimately, that can lead to system failure long before breakdowns or the need for repairs should happen.

            Of course, some people don’t change their filters because they’re not sure where the filter is located, or they’re unsure of how to actually change it. That should never be a worry, and it doesn’t have to be – when you turn to the cooling professionals at Degree to help. Our expert technicians will be able to show you how to locate your filter and change it out. Or, we’re happy to come change your AC filter for you, whenever needed.

            Degree Heating & Cooling can help you save money while improving your comfort. If you need AC maintenance, including air filter cleaning or replacement, count on us to meet your needs. Simply give us a call at (860) 633-6122, and we’ll be more than happy to assist you.

            Why Bother With AC Maintenance for Your Glastonbury Home?

            If you’re like many of us, once summer arrives we try to think of ways we can save money. More cash in our wallets means more money to spend on fun summer adventures, right? But, if you’re thinking that AC maintenance is a place to cut corners, you might want to reconsider.

            Degree can help with your home AC needs.

            Sometimes, people think that maintaining their air conditioning system is a lot of hype. Truth is, keeping  the AC system in your Glastonbury home running smoothly can save you aggravation – and cash.

            According to the Department of Energy, routine AC maintenance is critical to the life of your system. In fact, the DOE suggests that any air conditioning system’s filters, coils and fins need regular maintenance to work effectively and efficiently.

            Plus, the DOE says that your AC will likely lack in performance and use more energy without the right service. What AC maintenance does the system in your Glastonbury home need to run its best? Read below to learn more.

            Filters

            A clean filter in the AC system of your Glastonbury home means the cooled air is well-circulated. It also means dirty, debris-filled air isn’t entering your unit. Dirty filters keep the air from flowing normally and can cause your system to work less efficiently. If that happens, your AC will use more energy – and that will cost you money on your utility bills. As a matter of fact, replacing a dirty filter can help your AC use between 5 and 15 percent less energy. The biggest bonus from keeping filters cleaned or replace can be found in the long-term – because your AC won’t have to work as hard and won’t be filled with dirt, it’ll likely live longer.

            Coils

            Like all the other parts of the AC in your Glastonbury home, the coils collect dirt over the months and years of use. The dirt reduces the coil’s ability to absorb heat, and it reduces airflow. You can help by keeping dirt and debris around your outdoor unit to a minimum. Keep leaves and lawn clippings away from your unit, and trim back any foliage. Getting annual AC maintenance from Degree helps ensure your coils are cleaned and in good working order.

            Drains

            If the drain in your AC system is clogged, your unit will have to work harder. Clogged drains keep your unit from reducing humidity. That will leave you uncomfortable at the very least. Too much humidity in your home can cause mold and mildew to grow, and that can spell trouble for your walls and carpets.

            How can Degree help me get the AC maintenance I need for my Glastonbury home?

            When you have a professional technician from Degree regularly maintain the AC in your Glastonbury home, you’re helping to prevent small problems from becoming large problems and ensuring the best performance possible from your AC system. At Degree Heating & Cooling, we’re pleased to offer annual service agreements as well, which can help reduce the cost of your air conditioning system maintenance tune-up. You’ll enjoy:

            • Longer equipment life
            • Lower utility bills
            • Reduction in repairs
            • A more comfortable indoor environment
            • A protection of your investment
