Did you know that the air you breathe in poses a harmful threat to your life? These harmful gases cannot be seen by the naked eye, but are very much present in the air.
The air quality has been congested with dangerous gases which is a result of mankind’s needs for their so called “development”. But our wrong doings have not gone unnoticed; Mother Nature has taken her revenge. Harming our environment has led it to affect our immune systems in return. While it’s practically impossible to control our atmosphere pollution levels unless drastic changes are made, indoor air can be protected.
As air indoors is trapped with pollutants like smoke from cooking and tobacco, animal fur strands, dust particles, pollen, mold spores and other fungi, dust mite feces, it’s likely that it could be more polluted than air outdoors. This has an adverse effect on your health giving you allergy reactions like sneezing, coughing and a cold too. All of these pollutants are easily collected in stagnant indoor air because of the lack of ventilation and purifying facilities.
With the help of Air Treatment Systems and indoor air quality products like air filtration products, high efficiency furnaces, air conditioners (HVAC), humidifiers, air purifiers and ozone cleaners you can monitor and control the air within the house against external pollutants. Some ways to maintain these air treatment systems to ensure a clean and pure circulation of air are
Change The Oil
Extreme humidity and hot summers can use up large oil quantities rapidly. Regular changing of oil in the filter will keep you prepared before the summer begins. Through periodic inspections, probably every month or so, you can avoid sudden failures and lengthy shut downs. Check the oil levels every month to gage the machines progress and sturdiness of the unit’s running.
Ventilate The Compressor Room
Poor ventilation reduces oil life and decreases the effluence of compressors. Ensuring cool air to the compressor units, adding duct work to remove exhaust heat and checking for excess heating of other equipment in the compressor room will increase the lifespan of your air cleaning device.
Clean the Coolers
Keeping the fluids and coolers dirt free will maintain low operating and compress air discharge temperatures which make dryers more effective and extend fluid life in the long haul.
Check Your Electrical Cabinet
Dirt and debris can accumulate and build up heat on electrical components. Cleaning or replacing dusty filters on the electrical cabinet to avoid this is essential. Carefully conducted monthly checkups will help the efficient running of your devices.
Check All Drains on Tanks, Dryer and Filters
In the process of drying and filtering, air purifying devices remove the extra water from the atmosphere, especially in humid summer months. Check if your drains are functioning properly, try the test button or adjust timer settings (if you have them).
Statistics have shown the risk we subject ourselves to by living in polluted indoor air. With Indoor air pollution being among the top five environmental health risks and about 1 in 5 people in America suffering from serious allergies or sinus issues, steps must be taken to reduce our exposure to it. If safeguarding your family and yourself is your no.1 priority, install an air treatment system, today!
