Indoor Air Quality

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, more homeowners and business owners are looking to maximize indoor air quality. OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) lists inadequate HVAC maintenance as a major cause of poor indoor air quality. OSHA claims poor indoor air quality can cause headaches, fatigue, concentration problems, skin rashes, and eye, nose, throat and lung irritation.

Also, chronic health problems such as asthma can be linked to indoor air quality and HVAC systems. Prolonged exposure to certain contaminants has even been connected to life-threatening medical conditions including heart and lung disease and cancer.

With the uncertainty around the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, homeowners and business owners alike want to do everything they can to remove any potential virus contamination in the air to keep people safe in their spaces.

How your HVAC System Impacts Air Quality
Most of us spend 90-percent of our time indoors. Many tend to think of HVAC as a means to cool a room when it’s hot or heat a room when it’s cold. But a well-designed system does more than pump cold and hot air into our space - it maintains a consistent temperature to promote healthy indoor air quality.

The air you inhale at home or work is filtered through an HVAC system, which brings in air from the outside. So your HVAC system is bringing outdoor pollutants inside and those unwanted contaminants can stay inside if your HVAC system isn’t functioning properly or serviced regularly. Carson's Cooling offers leading indoor air quality solutions that will prevent untreated outdoor air from invading your indoor space and protect you from contaminants.
